Ep. 23: Poet & Author Philip Daughtry

Poet & Author Philip Daughtry

In this episode of The Chat with Claire Fordham podcast, Claire interviews American poet and author, Philip Daughtry.

But there’s much more to Philip than great writing. He’s an adventurer, a gardener, a builder, a painter, a cowboy, a true Bohemian, lover of life and people. Before he retired, Philip was a Professor of Creative Writing at several prestigious universities. He’s still writing.

Being a cowboy for a few years is in his blood. Philip is a distant cousin of Frank and Jesse James. While the James brothers did give some of what they stole from banks to the poor, Philip says that, on the whole, they weren’t very nice people.

Philip Daughtry’s books are available at Amazon.

Ep. 21 – Psychologist & Librettist Dr. Terry Marks-Tarlow.

Clinical Psychologist & Librettist Dr. Terry Marks-Tarlow.

In this episode of The Chat with Claire Fordham podcast, Claire interviews Clinical Psychologist & Librettist Dr. Terry Marks-Tarlow.

Terry has a thriving therapy practice in LA, is an acclaimed author, artist, dancer and yogi who accepted the challenge to write the book for a mini opera, Oroborium, comfortably slipping into the shoes of the great Welsh poet Dylan Thomas who drank himself to death on his way to California to work with the great composer Igor Stravinsky before they could properly start the project.

Sixty years on, the prestigious Juilliard School of Music commissioned composer Jonathan Dawe to finish the opera and he invited Terry to write the libretto as they’d successfully worked on another opera together.

Terry talks about that incredible journey that culminated in a performance in New York’s Lincoln Center and gives advice on how to be emotionally and physically fit.
