LIANE CARMEN, a former marketing employee for Coca-Cola, and now an author from Florida, joined us to discuss her "Investigation Duo" series, as well as her upcoming standalone book, "When Wings Flutter".

Fresh from the success of his book, "A Principal's Family Principles" (available for purchase at www.amazon.com, barnesandnoble.com, and www.outskirtspress.com), "Dr. Paul's Family Talk" focuses on the family, kids, parenting, schools, jokes, music, sports, issues of the day, and all issues that impact the family.
