Ask Dr. Bunny. Writing Children’s Books? Russ Towne, guest.

Author Russ Towne joins Dr. Bunny to discuss writing children’s books. Russ actually started out co-writing songs with a friend, and he says that was “the spark that lit the creative fire”!   He’s gone on to write many wonderful children’s books, including the bestseller “A Duck Who Flew Upside Down”.

So how does Russ come up with his ideas for books? How do you write a children’s book? And what inspired the word Grumpadinkles??

Russ has been described by good friend, Dennis Madden, as “a modern-day Art Linkletter, with a touch of Mr. Greenjeans”.  Tune in and get to know this very special author and wonderfully interesting man!

About Russ Towne:

Russ Towne lives with his wife in Campbell, California USA. Married since 1979, they have three adult children and five grandchildren. His passions include family, friends, writing, and investing. Russ wrote his first book in 2013, at the age of fifty-six. He has since written and published dozens of books that can be found on Amazon.com and elsewhere.

Russ delights in seeing the expressions on the faces of young children and their loved ones as they experience his children’s picture, early reader, and chapter books. He enjoys reading stories to children and interacting with youngsters and hopes to inspire a love within them for the magic of reading and writing.

Russ savors experiencing nature, especially rivers and streams that run through giant redwood groves and beautiful beaches. He enjoys watching classic movies, reading, and his tiny fern garden and redwood grove.

Russ manages the investments for clients of the wealth management firm he founded in 2003.

LifeRhythms Radio: Episode 8 – Vulnerability, Laughter and Recovery – Featured Guest: Jessica Landon

Jessica Landon, actress, comedian, sobriety activist, business owner, influencer and author of “Human on Fire”

Welcome to Episode 8 of LifeRhythms Radio!

In this episode, Robert interviews Jessica Landon, a talented Hollywood actress, comedian, sobriety activist, business owner, author and influencer residing in Hollywood, CA. In this ‘entertaining’ interview, Robert and Jessica will be discussing “Vulnerability, Laughter and Recovery” – a topic that has been given very little attention in this day and age. Jessica reveals the importance of laugther and how vital it is to the recovery process and in everyday life. She vulnerably shares her experiences with recovery and humor as well as revealing where vulnerability plays an important role in the mix of the two. Also in this episode, Jessica educates the LifeRhythms Community with powerful scientific facts about the importance of having fun and she honestly reveals how she has been able to impact, inspire and motivate thousands of her social media followers with humor, vulnerability and giving back to the recovery community.

Lastly, you will hear a piece music that Jessica has chosen from Evlov’s discography (Robert’s music project) called, “Forgiveness Opens New Doors” as well as the inspiration that helped her select this impactful and profound piece of music. Please remember to be in touch with her after listening to the interview and tell her that you heard her speak on LifeRhythms Radio. Jessica will be more than happy to connect! Definitely reach out and check out her website for recent updates on what she is up to. You’ll be glad that you reached out to her!

About Jessica Landon:

As an actor and comedienne, Jessica has appeared on Comedy Central’s MADtv, Robot Chicken, Nickelodeon’s Drake & Josh, and NBC’s Medical Investigations. She partied with Hugh Hefner, appeared in glossy magazines and created the appearance of having a glamorous life. It all came at a cost. A few years into her acting career, Jessica spiraled into a late stage, nonfunctioning alcoholic.

Jessica’s harrowing journey has led her to numerous rehabs, mental institutions, the streets, homes and beds of sexual predators, and jail. Ultimately, her addiction left her with a brain hemorrhage and multiple organ failure as a result of lying in a drunken stupor in one spot of a street musician’s filthy rug for a month. The acid from her urine burned holes through the skin of her hips and tailbone. When Jessica was admitted to the hospital, she weighed 78 pounds, had a blood alcohol level of .503, and a rampant blood staph infection. She was told by her doctor her wouldn’t have survived the night without medical intervention.

After surviving so many tussles with death, the pain associated with drinking finally eclipsed the memory of pleasure, and Jessica was finally able to give up alcohol, fully embracing a life of forgiveness, gratitude, love, and sobriety.

She just finished writing her memoir “Human On Fire” which you will be able to purchase on my website humanonfire.com in the near future.
