My Interest is Piqued #2

A Vocal + Assist Facebook Feature

By Rick Henry Christopher Published 28 days ago β€’ 4 min read

"My Interest is Piqued" is a feature I started in early 2023 on the Facebook group Vocal + Assist. I did it for a few months then lost interest. However, the feature was very popular and I decided it was worth another go round.

In this new iteration of "My Interest is Piqued" I will be writing it in the style of a news column, so it will indeed include bits of information and sometimes humor here and there. I plan on having fun with this while I feature stories of some of Vocal Media's most brilliant writers.


Meet Kenneth Lawson. Kenneth is a great guy. He's a down-to-earth family man. Kenneth loves reading and writing. But, what interests me most about him is his love for music. Anybody who knows me knows that I love music and I love music from all genres and times. From what I gather Kenneth especially enjoys some music of Frank Sinatra, Henry Mancini, Roy Clark, Miles Davis, Glen Campbell, and many other great musicians. Kenneth loves using fountain pens and listening to records. Get up close and personal with Kenneth.

Jason Basaraba (aka JBaz) is an accomplished writer and writes in several genres. He's a well-respected storyteller in the Vocal Media community.

With this story I am featuring; Jason has tried his hand at horror and well he scared the living daylights out of me.

Everybody loves Em Keels (also known as sleepy drafts). Em has a talent of drawing people to her with her clever wit and exceptional storytelling skills. Her story "Lunch Money" is an unusual story with a bit of humor and a moral learned.

I love this one from my cousin… Tiffa… Tiffany Gordon is one of Vocal Media's most loved creators. Rumor has it that she is mother to more than a dozen children. Of course let's keep in mind that they are her Barbie (and Ken) children. Still, I keep hearing that she is one excellent momma.

Lamar Wiggins first came to my attention when he wrote a dragon story called β€œTywrick.” Now let me tell you I am not at all into dragons or dragon stories. But Lamar did such a masterful job at writing this story that I just couldn't help but to love it. Right at that moment I became a Lamar Wiggins fan and have been ever since.

In this featured story β€œAliens in da Hood,” Lamar treats us to his off-beat humor, set to rhyme and rhythm…

I don't know Marie Wilson, from Toronto, very well yet. But, I am very impressed with her story β€œIn the 6ix a Black Baker Rises to the Top,” that I hope I get the opportunity to know her better. Please enjoy her inspiring story for Black History Month:

Clyde E. Dawkins is a quiet yet prolific writer. He mainly does sports reviews or stories on his favorite television or film villainesses. Clyde's style is professional, well researched, and filled with great details.

Natasha Sunny Collazo is one of our newest members. Wow, is she ever talented! Natasha calls herself a Werewolf Writer. She says she finds her inspiration in the mid of night. She works the stock market by day and is a writer by night. I suspect some mystery here!!!
