Episode 23 – How Many Threads Connect Us to Complicated Family Secrets – Author John Copenhaver & Singer/Songwriter Rorie Kelly



How many threads connect us to complicated family secrets?  In this installment, Larry, along with contributor Rory Vecsey chat with author John Copenhaver about his new book Savage Kind.  Larry explores how crafting a purposeful prologue can set the table to manipulate the readers perspective to then make it easier for the author to create plot twists.  John discusses 2 characters Phillippa and Judy, 2 teens and the perception of the stereotypical young person in the 1940’s.  Not all is what it seems.  One of Larry’s favorite topics is discussing “femme fatale” characters and he explores with John the concept of a male in that role.  Rory inquires about the power of foreshadowing, along with the use of poetry and mythology in the book.

Joining Larry is singer/songwriter Rorie Kelly.  Rory plays 4 original songs, talks about being a “Lady Beast”, how the female voice effects people, and how the guitar is an extension of her body.  Rorie talks about her beginnings with her family, the influences in her songwriting. Rosie also does a Facebook Live called “Monday Night Muses“.
