About The Author Stories Podcast

I started the Author Stories Podcast in the fall of 2014 because I wanted to listen to authors tell their stories. I wanted to know what made creative people tick, and I am fascinated by the journey that people take to get to where they are. I looked for a podcast that fit the bill and couldn’t find one, so I started the show that I wanted to listen to. I reached out to a few authors, and they were generous with their time and wisdom. Over three years later, and now multiple shows a week, and ASP is still going strong.

In late summer 2017, the show had grown to the point that I had to have help if the show was going to keep on the growth trajectory it was on. My wife Dawn graciously agreed to come on board as full time Co-Producer of the show. Dawn brings an excitement to the show and has done a tremendous job forming and strengthening relationships with the author and publishing communities. With her help, we have increased to multiple episodes per week and the quality of our guests is stellar.

We focus on authors from all backgrounds, genres, indie or trad-pub. None of those distinctions really matter to us, we just love books and the people that make them. We hope that by showcasing authors to our audience, we help the author community, foster a love of reading, and hopefully bring some magic to the world.

Bette Lee Crosby with Cyrus Webb on “Breakfast with Books”

Host Cyrus Webb welcomes author Bette Lee Crosby to Conversations LIVE’S “Breakfast with Books” to discuss the book SPARE CHANGE.

Spare Change

A woman grieving her loss. A boy running for his life. A town defending them both…

A USA Today Bestseller and the first book in a collection of gritty, small-town family sagas. Reviewers say, “Spare Change is written in the tradition of the finest Southern fiction.”

Small-town gossip never really bothered Olivia Westerly. As a single career woman, she’s endured her share. It’s easy to ignore the raised eyebrows over her late-in-life marriage to Charlie Doyle. But after he drops dead on their honeymoon, the whispers pour salt on her raw grief. Especially when an orphaned, eleven-year-old-boy shows up on her doorstep, looking for the grandfather he never met.

Behind Ethan Allen Doyle’s wary blue eyes lie heavily guarded emotions that unexpectedly tug on Olivia’s heart, and she finds herself wanting to win his trust. But when his murderous secret comes looking for him, the entire town embraces this lonely widow and desperate child to show its true heart before danger can threaten one of its own.

A heartwarming tale of love, loss and unexpected gifts, featuring a woman you’d like to call friend, a boy you will ache to hug, and a town you wish you could call home.

Tim Knox: Bette Lee Crosby is my guest today. Bette Lee is a USA Today bestselling author, winner of 15 literary awards, specializing in women’s fiction. She has seven published novels to her credit plus two releases coming later in the year.

Bette Lee is best known for her strong character portrayals and that’s one thing we talk about is how she develops these characters that are so real and so well-rounded they practically jump off the page. They just become real people to you. She also writes in a very heartwarming Southern voice and she speaks in a heartwarming Southern voice, so a really good interview from a lady with a very interesting backstory, which I’ll let Bette Lee tell you about.
