Section: Help Stop The Spread of Crime Against Innocent Victims:

Are you tired of being bombarded with scenes of violence? Or are you simply sick of hearing about the world of crime? Or are you fed-up with all of the foul language being used around you and now you are just ready to pack it in and not listen anymore? Do you feel totally helpless when it comes to not being able to protect your kids from such things as bullying and abuse?

If your answer to any of the above questions is "yes" then please read on! There is something that we can all do to stop the spread of crime and there is no need for you to throw up your hands in desperation and surrender anymore! No, there is a simple solution just waiting for you to become a part of it and it has to do with how we listen and what we listen to!

The time has come to change the way we listen, and what we allow and encourage our kids to listen to. Yes! The time has come for us to use the spoken word to help change how our kids think, act, and react. It's all about using the power of the spoken word to reshape our mindset to become problem solvers through logic and fact rather than through violence and crime.

Donna Jodhan has developed a very unique and potent recipe for helping to fight crime and it all begins with exposing kids and their parents to clean listening through her audio mysteries. In short! A delicious salad bowl of simple ingredients that include warm heartedness, fiction, drama, suspense, intrigue, mystery, all combined with occurrences of daily life! Donna Jodhan's audio mysteries are filled with clean content that truly depicts the essence of true mystery as opposed to the use of distasteful language while at the same time it perpetuates enjoyment and pleasure through the use of real life conflict and drama.

For literally pennies you can purchase, sit, and enjoy and you know what? You can download these mysteries to your computer and to any of your i-devices! No more having to worry about what your kids are listening to!

Help author Donna Jodhan stop the spread of crime by supporting her efforts to promote clean and healthy listening! Help her to stop the contamination of what our kids listen to and replace it with content that is positive and uplifting!

Above all! Help our kids to grow up in a world where crime is not allowed to take up precious time!


Section: Mystery of the Month

This month I'd like to whet your appetite with a brief description of an audio mystery episode that I have chosen for you. This one is called "Rally in the Rose Garden" and here is a brief description:

A story of deceit, jealousy, and a general who took whatever he wanted.
He was liked and disliked but at the end!
General Alexander Beaumont had to die!

Who could have done this?

There was someone who did not like the victim for his views and thought that the general was all wrong for the army.
There was someone who desired to have a settling of accounts because he had recently been demoted by the general.
There was someone who the general had been blackmailing because he had caught her passing on intelligence material to a foreign government.
Someone had wanted the general dead because he had been having an affair with his wife.

You can purchase this audio mystery for the very affordable price of $0.99 USD. Each of my audio mysteries cost $0.99 USD and you can purchase an entire season of 13 mysteries for the very low price of $9.99 USD.

Visit http://www.donnajodhan.com/store.html to purchase your very own copies.

Author Donna Jodhan has committed her efforts towards encouraging parents and kids to become involved in helping her to develop a healthy habit of listening to audios that are free of vivid descriptions of violence and sex. She firmly believes that society as a whole can do much to vastly lower spiraling rates of crime through her audio mysteries; clean and creative listening. If you are tired of hearing about crime and watching and listening to crime then you owe it to yourself to start listening to Donna Jodhan's audio mysteries.

The highlights of her audio mysteries are drama, suspense, and intrigue and she has developed a unique way of using these ingredients along with real life occurrences to create listening that is clean, creative, and imaginative.

Many are saying that Author Donna Jodhan has developed a very unique and enterprising recipe for helping to deal with crime. Why not give it a try? Visit http://www.donnajodhan.com/store.html to purchase your very own copies.

Section:Some Friendly Advice From Author Donna Jodhan:

For this month, I'd like to focus some attention on imagining. I have found that the ability to imagine definitely helps me to move my writing forward. It does not cost anything to imagine. All you need to do is to allow yourself to think and imagine. Anything and everything!

The beauty about imagining is that you can do it anywhere and everywhere. You can use almost anything to help you imagine; music, words, a passage that you have read, your memory, a TV show, anything!

You would be surprised to discover how for example the sound of children laughing can trigger your imagination or how the sound of running water or horns blaring on a busy street can help to give your imagination a jolt. So why not try it?

Happy imagining!
Donna J. Jodhan AKA Detective DJ


Section: The Mysterious World of Detective DJ:

Each month, I, Detective DJ, will be sharing snippets of my world with my readers and to kick things off, I'll tell you a wee bit about who I am.

I am blind and I record my audio mysteries in my own voice. With a bit of luck I hope to start recording my own background music for my audios in the near future and I have plans to develop my own audio mystery games. I have already recorded two seasons of my Crime Crushers series and am almost finished writing my third season. I am hoping to record my third season some time in early 2014.

My first two seasons were broadcasted by Accessible Media, Inc. of Toronto Canada and is presently being aired on ACB Radio. Going forward, ACB Radio plans to air future seasons on its station.

I live and work in Toronto Canada and I am supported by a team of highly qualified and dedicated professionals. Of course, my mysteries are all fictional; written and recorded by me. My mysteries are filled with drama, excitement, and suspense but most of all; they are free of bad and racy language and there are no explicit descriptions of sex and violence.

For next month, I will introduce you to my team and tell you a bit more about my world but in the meantime, happy listening!
