My first guest on the Tami Jackson Show* tonight will be Joy Overbeck.

Joy OverbeckJoy Overbeck is a Colorado journalist and author who has written on lifestyle and relationship topics for Redbook, Reader’s Digest, TV Guide, Woman’s Day, Health, and other national and regional magazines.

She’s also written two humor books published by Pocket Books, Simon&Schuster. She describes herself as a radical conservative God fan who has delighted for the last several years in annoying libs with columns at, The Washington Times, The Daily Caller, American Thinker, and elsewhere.

Other favorite forms of recreation include riding her Rocky Mountain mare, Gypsy, out into the wide open spaces of beautiful Colorado, skiing Vail, and enjoying her friends and her golden tabby, Tigger.

Joy and I will be covering her recent Townhall column, “Democrats Literally Will Not Stand for Anything Americans Want” as well as other current news topics. Joy is a woman after my own heart and has a passion for our nation and turning our culture away from Progressive socialism. Yes she has spunk! Which means you won’t want to miss this conversation!


In the second 1/2 hour I will be joined by New York Times best-selling author C.J. Box whose new Joe Pickett book, Vicious Circle, came out just one week ago!

Chuck Box and I will be talking about his hot-off-the-presses, must read Joe Pickett book, Vicious Circle. The newest installment in the Joe Pickett series reprises all the characters Box fans love: Wyoming game warden, Joe Pickett, the reluctant hero; his friend, Nate Romanowski; Joe’s smart, beautiful wife, Marybeth; Joe’s “growing up too fast” daughters, Sheridan, April, and Lucy. In Vicious Circle, Joe faces an old nemesis, Endangered low-life, Dallas Cates.

Listen in as I catch up with Chuck Box and his sure-fire best-seller, Vicious Circle.
