High Five for Julie Bohannon

by heathers on April 17, 2014

Julie Bio
Meet Julie Bohannon! Julie is co-Director of the Listen To Your Mother Show in Oklahoma City. Let’s get to know Julie a little bit better with her high five.
How would you describe yourself as a writer?
I’m a coffee pot of stories…stories percolate in me for a long time (like years) before they bubble out. The story comes out when it is time.
What is the craziest piece of advice your Mom gave you?
“Don’t be afraid of challenging the utility companies if they want to cut your trees, they can’t chop anything down if you are standing in the way.”
Favorite quote I live by?
“To be nobody but yourself in a world that’s doing its best to make you somebody else, is to fight the hardest battle you are ever going to fight. Never stop fighting” e.e.cummings

As a child, what did you wish to become when you grow up?

A ballerina detective…I wanted to be like Nancy Drew and I really, really wanted a pink tulle tutu…

If you hosted a dinner party for LTYM cast, what would you serve?

It would be a chocolate -themed buffet!

High Five for Heather Davis

by heathers on April 16, 2014

heather bio

Meet Heather Davis! Heather is the co-Producer of the Oklahoma City Listen To Your Mother Show. Her piece can best be summed up with the word: REVERSAL. Let’s get to know Heather a little bit better with her high five.

Q. As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?

I wanted to be a writer. I wanted to write mystery books like Nancy Drew and Encyclopedia Brown. I even wrote a table of contents and it scared the crap out of me, so I threw it in the trash. I knew then that I’d be a good writer.

Q. Best movie for a Saturday Night?

A League of Their Own. The whole family loves it. We laugh, we cry, we talk about the way things used to be, we sing Carly Simon songs. Well, maybe I sing Carly Simon songs, but you get the picture, right?

Q. What’s the craziest piece of advice your parents ever gave you?

They made me be in  by midnight. I thought it was ludicrous and told them so. I told them I just wanted to be out until 1 or 2, maybe 3.

My folks said, “Only crazy people are out after midnight.”

I said, “I’d be out after midnight!”

And they said, “Exactly.”

I was in by 12:05.

Q. Ultimate, albeit embarrassing, guilty pleasure?

McDonalds. I love them. I could eat them all the time.

Q. What concert would you see again and again?

Bon Jovi. I love Jon … we’re on a first name basis. I call him Jon and he tells me he wants to lay me down in a bed of roses. I make my husband call me Mrs. Bon Jovi for weeks after a Bon Jovi concert. Don’t worry about him. I call him Jon. It’s win-win, really.

HIgh Five for Misti Pryor

April 15, 2014

Meet Misti Pryor, director and producer of the Listen To Your Mother Show in Oklahoma City! The one word Misti would use to describe her piece would be ENCOURAGEMENT. Let’s get to know Misti a little bit better with her high five. Q: How would you describe yourself as a writer?  My voice is decidedly present, sometimes raw sometimes polished, hardly ever academic. Equal parts Sporadic, and stream of conscious. Q: What’s the craziest piece of advice your mother/parents gave you? Don’t breathe in the Pam when you spray the brownie pan. To this day, I hold my breath.   Q: What’s your superpower? Connecting with people, connecting people, with a side of Pop Culture Quoting. Because if that’s not a superpower, it should be.   Q: What concert would you see again and again? This is a hard one, because I see a lot of live music. A lot of really great […]

High Five for Holly Johns

April 14, 2014

  Meet Holly Johns! Holly  is a member of the 2014 #LTYM #OKC cast. Her piece can best be summed up with the word: STRUGGLE. Let’s get to know Holly  a little bit better with her high five. Q: What inspired you to audition for LTYM? For years I’ve joked with my family about writing a book. Our common mantra throughout life’s twists and turns being, “you can’t write fiction better than this.” So I’ve always felt like my story had a purpose; there was a reason for life’s crazy, messy, painful, hilarious moments. This year I also made a commitment to be more creative, to try new things and spend more time doing what I enjoy (like writing). Though this isn’t the bestselling novel I imagined I would be writing by now, it is a step in the right direction. Hopefully this story will be as cathartic and helpful for others as […]
