Host Henna Hundal examines the benefits of choosing a life of integrity, honesty, bravery, and empowerment, while inspiring others to do the same. Henna interviews two thrilling authors, Natalie Richards and Anita Telle.
Natalie is the author of the YALSA Teens’ Top Ten nominated psychological thriller, Six Months Later, and the newest thriller Gone Too Far. She discusses the choices she has made to live her passion as a writer and she encourages youth to go for their dreams.
Anita Telle has a mission: To teach acceptance and love to children ages 4 – 9 so they will grow up to be amazing, supportive and loving teenagers, immune to peer pressure and bullying.
Her recent book “The Ultimate Anti-Bullying Solutions Guide: The Sure fire way to STOP Bullying NOW!” is a handbook for people who want to choose a positive solution.

Natalie Richards
Born and raised in Central Ohio, Natalie D. Richards is the author of the YALSA Teens’ Top Ten nominated psychological thriller, Six Months Later.  Publisher’s Weekly calls her newest thriller, Gone Too Far, ‘…a gripping whodunit with a challenging ethical dilemma at its center.’  With a career history in technical, legal, and business writing, Richards turned to fiction in her late twenties and hasn’t looked back.  A champion of aspiring authors, Richards regularly presents workshops to schools and writing groups.  When she’s not writing or speaking, you can probably find her wading through the towers of dog-eared paperbacks that have taken over her bedroom.

Guest Bio: Captain Perfecto Sanchez, US Army

A Bronze Star recipient was born and raised in NYC; raised by both his grandmother and mom and the eclectic 8M neighbors in the city.  His mom was a teacher and his grandmother a pianist so he grew up with a inquisitive and creative curiosity for life. The military was never in the cards for him until he met Jack Dammon, his track coach, a man he very much respected.  His opinion was that Perfecto had potential but lacked discipline.  He thought obstacle courses sounded cool so he opened up the West Point brochure that Jack gave him.

He met the best of friends at West Point- friends he still is very close with to this day.  The world was much simpler then, before 9-11 that is.  It wasn’t until his 3rd year when he had to choose his brand that it really hit him that he could potentially be going to war.  He blames his curious personality that led him to infantry- and the fact that if he was going to do something he wanted to do, he wanted to do it with his utmost ability; and of course that his best friend was doing it with him.

He reported to Ft Benning in June 2005- after a few nights out in the woods and a couple jumps out of an airplane about a year later he was reporting to his first duty station in Baumholder, Germany.  His unit was already deployed and he was scheduled to fly out less than 2 weeks from getting there and he couldn’t wait.
