The Thirteen Problems (Miss Marple, #2)The Thirteen Problems by Agatha Christie
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

There is something special about this introduction of Agatha Christie’s second great sleuth; Miss Marple. Introduced through a series of short stories that allows you to truly get to know her. Her intelligence, compassion and humor. Her sweet expression belied by her sharp blue eyes as she sits quietly knitting almost forgotten by the others in the room. Even when she says she really had no idea what the solution was, she really did. Some people don’t enjoy reading short stories but I always have. It helps you to learn all the different sides of characters. And it teaches you just what an art the creating of a short story truly is and Agatha Christie was genius at it.

Five Little Pigs (Hercule Poirot, #25)Five Little Pigs by Agatha Christie
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Five Little Pigs is one of my favorite stories. I first saw the David Suchet version on TV, and just fell in love with it because though it takes place in the 1930’s, the action of the piece takes place in one of my favorite eras the 1920’s. It is a fascinating look at how people see a catastrophic event differently.

There are differences of course between the book and the show. The name of daughter is different and several other little things, especially the way it ends but essentially it is the same story. I find how she has the same story again and again and again, 5 times really, and each is different because each person who tells it is different and see is in their own way.

I also find it fascinating how an open and closed case changes when you listen to the personal versions because you see things that of course the lawyers would never have even have thought to ask of each witness. And several incredibly important facts are not apart of the trial.

I won’t tell any more because I don’t want to give away the plot. But I can see why this was one of Agatha Christie’s favorites. Such a complex and intricate plot. Brilliant.

Partners in Crime (Tommy and Tuppence #2)Partners in Crime by Agatha Christie
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I do not have an accurate count of how many times I have read this wonderful romp. It is my go to book for a troubled heart. I really defy anyone who is down in the mouth, to read one of the short stories in this and not to be touched or smiling at the antics of Tuppence and Tommy. One of my favorites.

Cat’s Pajamas, Hamlet and The Chatty!!!

Well, I am going to try to bring my dreams of having one of my plays on stage come to life! I started a campaign yesterday on Kickstarter to get the financing to make it happen. So you can be a part of theater and put Cat’s Pajamas on the stage! http://kck.st/2meg7vY  I have some great rewards listed and even if you don’t live here in California, you can be a part of the theater, kind of cool, huh? 
I would like to thank everyone who listened to  Hamlet on the New Years Eve, we have had amazing numbers.  I think I can speak for the whole cast,  we were all stunned! To be honest I wasn’t sure about doing it as a recording, I like the live theater aspect of it but since it was a holiday it was nice to just press a button and let it go.  I would like to thank Everett  Robert who edited it all Christmas week, Nick Davidge for all the sound effects that he created for the broadcast, And C. B. Floyd for his help in editing the play.  And Anne Louise Fortune for adapting and directing the play for the radio theater.  For those who missed it please listen to here for our archive of it;  http://tobtr.com/10488099  
And to listen to the cast chat about the whole experience here is the link; http://tobtr.com/10488099

Send me a note if your interested at; https://www.facebook.com/RithebardWebsite/
I have a big announcement for Chatting With Sherri coming soon, shhhh.
Meanwhile I have been rather lax in telling you about my guests shows, so here is a run down of my lovely wonderful and most generous guests!
Chatting With Sherri welcomes Hugo Nominated editor & author Bryan Thomas Schmidt on 8/31/17 11ampt http://tobtr.com/10361887 
 
I had a delightful chat with the talented Anthony and Julie Sharpe, we talked about how they met, Anthony’s latest jobs, Julie’s trip to Cambodia and the Kickstarter campaign for Miss Fisher;  
 
My chat with Emmy Winning Producer,Writer and Author Brooks Wachtel was fun, charming yet highly educational.  Brooks is a very witty and bright man and he is a great communicator, we chatted about such a wide amount of subjects you will see why I say I learn something wonderful every time I chat with him;  
 
My chat with the charming, wonderful and talented Highlander Star, author and film maker; Elizabeth Gracen! We had a fun chat about her producing, the Highlander Con she was going to (which might be the last one) and her book site’s update, we had such a fun chat! http://tobtr.com/10318049
Tops on Elizabeth made the tops in Entertainment on blogtalk last week; 

Best Selling, Award Winning author Peter Wacks was just delightful,  we had a great time chatting about books, creativity and how to find your pace when creating your book.;   http://tobtr.com/10333437  

We had such a great time Peter decided to give me an exclusive BTS Clip only for my Patrons on my Patreon account.  I am so grateful it was so much fun;  So sign up 🙂

 

I also chatted with author Michael Okon about his new book Monsterland.  It was a great concept that they were just hurt individuals not monsters it was the public that came to stare at them that was causing the real damage. fascinating chat;  http://www.blogtalkradio.com/rithebard/2017/10/12/chatting-with-sherri
I chatted with RobRoy McCandless about his novel; HELL BECOMES HER we talked about writing a series, how that felt and how it felt when t came to an end.  fascinating chat;  
And to close on the anniversary of our last interview Nathan Page is once more tops in Entertainment on Blogtalk!

 

We are doing Hamlet, it is a very short version so don’t worry but it is an amazing thing to produce Shakespeare. 
 One thing I really find interesting is how many phrases and words come from this play.  If you think Hamlet is not your cup of tea listen to the words, you will be amazed how many times you hear his words in our modern language and people just don’t realize it. If you would like to take part in our next production please drop us a line;https://www.facebook.com/Sherris-Playhouse-1415103118746094/  
Just to get you in the mood for our radio theater here is;  My radio play Cat’sPajamas https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jjTbxYwWv1A was tops on Twitter in the last week 🙂
So I received my DVD of the show Bamboozled with my book and Spencer Powell’s vision.  It is my first writing assignment and it was very successful.  Really cool!
 Next year I will be taking part in Condor as a speaker, watch this space! http://www.condorcon.org/category/speakers/
