Barbara Bretton, Story Siren, Radio Shows and the Magic 99

The last few days have been full of fun, adventure and entertainment.

Today my Saturday "Book and a Chat" guest was Barbara Bretton, is the USA Today bestselling, award-winning author of more than 40 books. She currently has over ten million copies in print around the world. Her works have been translated into twelve languages in over twenty countries. Not counting that she is also a major knitter of socks...

As normal it was a great thirty minutes chatting with Barbara about her family, her writing, and her new book "Laced with Magic" the second book in the Sugar Maple series. As I always try for the show was full of laughter.

Check the show out at

Talking about laughter yesterday I had a wonderful time chatting with Kristi "The Story Siren" and many other YA Bloggers (Check yesterdays blog). I had a wonderful follow up from that show receiving this great email...

I was just listening to your interview with the darling Story
Siren.... I'm thrilled to hear that so many people have mentioned
WILLOW on your show! Thank you for your most positive comments! If
you would be interested in having me on....

Julia Hoban

Of course to get the author of Willow as a guest I jumped at it, so keep a look out for Julia coming as a future guest.

Talking about humor... with all the shows this week I did not have a Weird News day, though beleive me there were some great snippets.

In New Zealand (we have some great one from there) a man went into a record store, ordered a box set of CD's and gave the assistant his address and telephone number so he could be notified when the set arrived. He then robbed the store, but could not work out how the police were there waiting for him at his house when he got home.

Now that Magic 99.

I have had several fresh and very kind reviews at Amazon, each one clicking up the review counter, until today that total is sitting at 99... waiting... waiting to tick over to that wonderful 100

So that is the news for today I'll be back tomorrow with my UK BLOG where you can read about the fastest kettle in the world
