Truth of life.
Lori will begin the show by reading an excerpt from her book.
Here’s how Deadline Hollywood describes the book: THE LIFE LIST tells the story of a young woman who embarks on “a year-long journey of self-discovery after her mother passes away and leaves her an inheritance with one big stipulation–in order to receive it she must complete the items on the ‘life list” of goals she made for herself when she was 14. Although apprehensive at the beginning, she takes on this challenge in a “bewildering and comedic journey through her adolescent dreams” which leave her “surprised to find the life, and the self, she’d lost along the way.”
Lori Nelson Spielman lives in East Lansing, Michigan, with her husband and a very spoiled K.C. (Kitty Cat). A former speech pathologist and guidance counselor, she currently works as a homebound teacher for inner-city students. Lori enjoys running, traveling, and reading, though writing is her passion. She spends her winters cursing the god-awful Michigan winters, and her summers sailing the glorious shores of Lake Michigan.
JoyRadio was honored to host Jacqueline Gum , author of Confessions of a Corporate Slut, on March 7, 2012. Jacqueline discussed her profound and enlightening novel. She spoke about how woman’s role in marriage has been in a state of evolution since the beginning of time. In the 70′s and 80′s most women were stay-at-home moms. Then the feminist movement came along and there was a segment of women who blended the old with the new and became “professional” corporate wives. But was it worth the price they had to pay in the end – giving up their passion and relinquishing their power, all for the price of love?
Listen to Jacquie’s interview as she speaks about the common themes of her novel – love, broken dreams, courage, and renewal. Confessions of a Corporate Slut is a must read!
Thank you, Jacqueline for being a guest on the show. JoyRadio is looking forward to having you back to discuss your upcoming novel, The Accuser’s Burden.

I’ve had that verse printed on my pig chalkboard for years. Read it dozens of times a day. Quoted it more times than I can remember. But it wasn’t until I fell into the throes of unemployment, traveling rapidly into the abyss, that Ghandi’s words of wisdom rang in my ears, and reversed my direction mid-stream.
What I realized was my fears blocked my forward motion. They clipped my wings, and prevented my adventurous flight. Once cognizant that the only thing standing between me and my dreams was “me”, down came the walls. Saying “YES” to myself… “YES” to creating the life I always dreamed of… “YES” to risk… “YES” to change… “YES” to stepping into my authenticity, I effortlessly slid into my passion, finding my joy.
