Frank's literary quote for fellow WBZ Radio 1030 AM's "Movie/TV Night" panelist Marilyn Armstrong's book "The 12-Foot Teepee":
"Nevertheless, Armstrong's distinctive pathos in the way her narrative flowingly handles an unredeemable childhood with an adulthood filled with love and longing but continued financial and health-related chaos is indeed a winning account of elusive self-discovery...
the results are refreshingly therapeutic."– Frank Ochieng, World Voice News

Frank's featured literary quote/recommendation for author Marilyn Armstrong's "The 12-Foot Teepee" can be found at

"The impressive vision of writer-director-star Mike Reilly's filmmaking finesse emphatically sustains itself with engaging creativity in his independent film Road to Victory. Skillfully conceived, resourcefully intriguing, sentimental and cunningly relevant, it juggles its revolving subject matters with effortless candor and consideration. This is a thought-provoking, intimate film that is timely based on today's headlines where ill-advised usage of steroids are the unpredictable detriment to promising athletes.
Basically, Road to Victory is a quaint indie gem for the thinking person's moviegoer that appreciates a solid balance in moving, inspired storytelling, with performances that are thoroughly showcased in poignancy and potency. Road to Victory strikes a winning chord." - Frank Ochieng
