Happy Talk Interview with Bette Lee Crosby
It is such a thrill when you do a guest spot on a show and discover the interviewer has not only read your book but has taken the time to actually get to know you. Such was my experience today when I was interviewed on Joy Radio, a Blog Talk Radio Station.
Chatting with Host Pattie Welek Hall was like having tea with a dear friend. She had delightfully creative questions that led to discussions about things we authors seldom speak of and the time flew so quickly it seemed almost impossible that a half hour had gone by. I can say without hesitation, this was the most fun half hour I have spent in many weeks. Just for starters… Pattie starts her show with the laughter of children and it is all uphill from there.
Please take a moment to stop by, visit the show and enjoy a truly fun conversation about what it means to be an author.

What makes a family? That is one of the questions answered by Bette Lee Crosby in her latest offering.
Ida Sweetwater has had a lot of love and heartache in her long life. And Caroline, Ida's just found granddaughter, has had more than her share of heartache and loss.It is Ida's plan to replace that loss with love.
Caroline comes to live in Ida's home turned boarding house. There she meets quite a different set of boarders.The boarders quickly accept Caroline into their midst. Life is good. But even the best circumstances can go seriously awry without warning.
Oh, and let us not forget Mt Peter Pennigton, mysterious thrift store owner. He always seems to know just what is need just as it is needed.And the price is always right.
Bette Lee's stories are always filled with quirky characters and more than a hint of magic. A gentle life lesson is always involved softened with humor and grace. This one is no exception.

On Tuesday, December 27th, I had the pleasure of being the featured guest on the WAXE 1370AM talk show “Sabrina UnScripted” and a good time was had by all. Both Sabrina and her producer were wonderful to work with and since she is also an author, we had plenty to talk about. We shared helpful hints for writers, spoke about industry trends, and things that inspire writers. We also discussed the benefits of belonging to Goodreads, the website that is truly a book lover's paradise. On Goodreads a reader can find reviews, comments and opinions; share thoughts with other readers, and find wonderful books that might have otherwise gone undiscovered. My most recent release “Spare Change” has received a number of Goodreads Reviews, several five-star ratings, and lots of new readers. What fun it is to see the book popping up on so many new To-Be-Read lists.
In addition to hosting a twice weekly radio show, Sabrina is the mother of two boys and author of children's books, including “The Adventures of Isaiah James: Beach Boy” – she is also a business owner, Zumba lover, philanthropist, motivational speaker and literacy coach. Sabrina's show, as many may know, focuses on philanthropic issues and, like me, she often donates a portion of her book sales to the support of such causes. When I speak at Clubs where they are involved in community issues, I support the cause with 10% of the book sales from that event. It's a win-win situation and I can feel good for having contributed.
