Off The Chain
About This Show
Since I am an author I will be discussing my books. I will also load up the shows with other authors, artists, and a menagerie of characters. Because of who I am one will never know what the show will bring. It keeps the suspense alive.
You see I am not only an author, I am a person of action, whether it is an injustice that needs righting, education of the masses, or other off the chain subjects. I believe in discourse, but I do not believe in bashing. So all shows will be with respect - but off the chain.
