WEST HAWAII TODAY | BIG ISLAND ENTERTAINMENT SCENE FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 29, 2017 | 3 EVERYTHING EVERYTHING Words and Wine Tuesday in Keauhou Dave Fouts, Sheila Gallien and Sonia Martinez will be featured during Kona Stories Book Shop’s Words and Wine event at 6 p.m. on Tuesday in Keauhou Shopping Center. Fouts was born and raised in the Midwest and had rarely been more than 50 miles from home until going into the Army at age 18. After college, he went to Alaska where he stayed until 2003, when he moved to Hawaii Island. Fouts’ book, “Was This It?” is a mix of prose, prose poetry, and poems. Fouts calls this genre style “slipstream,” a crossover of science fiction, fantasy and literary fiction. Gallien is a writer, surfer, single mom, newly minted “channel,” and fierce focus expert who lives on the Big Island. In January, in the depth of a sixweek illness, she had the experience of beginning to “channel.” Gallien’s channeled book, “Bridging Ascension,” questions and answers for the surprised ascender, is a playful and loving guidebook for the believer or non-believer about the ascension of the planet from a 3-D consciousness to 5-D and beyond. Martinez was born in Cuba and has lived on Hawaii Island for the last 23 Fouts Gallien Martinez years. Through the years, she has owned kitchen/ gourmet shops and cooking schools, including Akaka Falls Inn, which she and her son opened in 1994 and ran for several years. Her third book, “Sonia Tastes Hawaii,” is a compilation of five years’ worth of columns. The articles and recipes found in “Sonia Tastes Hawaii” are inspired by her adventures and visits to all the farmers markets and community support agriculture farmers on Hawaii Island.
