Speakeasy with Eric Jerome Dickey (1)

New York Times best-selling author Eric Jerome Dickey doesn’t just write novels based on the drama of loves lost and found.

Calling all jet-setters on a budget! AirTran U is an awesome program for anyone between the ages of 18 and 22, even if you're not a student.

College brochures should come with a surgeon general warning that reads, "College causes a beer gut, an addiction to pizza, skeletons in your closet and absurd debt." The majority of that list can be easily overcome with exercise and a change of address or two. Debt, however, follows you like Screech followed Lisa Turtle in "Saved by the Bell."
