THE MAGIC OF CHILDHOOD

APRIL IS ALL ABOUT AUTHORS…AND A LOVE OF READING STARTS EARLY Jodie Brownlee wanted to be a genie when she grew up. Then she discovered a genie could spend centuries locked in a bottle, so Jodie decided to write about them instead. Although she writes about Ruby’s adventures, Jodie has quite a few of her own. She’s crossed the Rajasthan desert on a camel, plied Asian rivers on an elephant, driven a tuk tuk in Sri Lanka, dive.....

CHOCK FULL OF FUN!

I find very few things that are more fun than getting together with other book-lovers and talking about…what else…books! This past week was just chock full of such fun and here’s why… On Tuesday, the local book club I belong to had their meeting and we discussed last month’s read – Little Princes, One Man’s Promise to bring home the lost children of Napal – by Connor Grennan.  Although the story is non-fiction, we had the liveliest disc.....

FABULOUS FUN

By Bette Lee Crosby / February 25, 2012

For the past week, the Goodreads Ladies & Literature Group had been running a “Caption the Photo” contest to introduce my latest novel Spare Change to the ladies of the group. Oh what fun we had! The photo to be captioned was the one shown here and the captions were off the wall – actually they were too good to keep for myself, so I’ve decided to share them with my friends and fans. This is the picture – .....

FUN WITH THE “NEEDS-A-NAME” BOOK CLUB

The absolute most fun an author can have is to visit with a book club comprised of more than a  dozen fun-loving gals who are brimming over with comments and conversation. The book club I visited with on Wednesday, February 8th was at Evergreen Country Club and hosted by Joyce Humboldt. I can hardly find words enough to tell of the wonderful time I had. I have to start off with a big shout out to Ann Rogak who introduced the ladies to my books, and then add another shout out for Hol.....

Readers Speak

Thanks to all the Goodreads members who have made Spare Change the #1 choice on the Listopedia list of “Best Unknown Books” – I am both honored and awed. I can only hope that everyone who read the book and enjoyed it will pass the word along to their friends and their friends will in turn pass it along again and again. It’s the same old story as when a tree falls in the forest and no one is there to hear the sound, did it really fall? The same is even more true of a bo.....

Cracks in the Sidewalk

CRACKS IN THE SIDEWALK,,,THE FIRST CHAPTER April, 2006 The dream came back the day I received the letter, I hadn’t thought about it in decades but I suppose it was always there. A thing you’ve carried inside your heart for the better part of a lifetime doesn’t disappear so easily, it slides behind the everyday worries calling for your attention and waits—waits until your heart opens up to let it fly loose again. You never expect that something y.....
