Book Reviews; 

Out on a LimbOut on a Limb by Shirley MacLaine
It’s funny, I have read this book so many times that my copy is dogeared, not by folding down the edge ( I was taught never to do that,) but by being read over and over. I still find it fascinating. I had no idea that some of the people were composites, I always wondered what happened to David. He sort of disappeared in the mountains in the end. I just hoped he made it home alright, I found out later that he was actually several people, so I guess he did.

I know the focus of the book was Shirley and Gerry, (I later found out who he was too, and it was two different men. (at different times.) ) but I found the interaction with Bella Abzug and David much more compelling. And because I was very interested in my own spiritual search when I was in my early twenties, it was my go to book about trance channeling, and other pursuit of spiritual understanding. I was actually in college at the time and my adviser found me reading it a bit worrying, but since I was completely devoted to my education, she put it down to youthful pursuits. Hehehehe.

Well it has been years and I found the romance part a bit difficult to get through. I would have to push myself to read it. Not because of any judgmental feelings but I just wasn’t that interested in that part. (I have had my own life experiences now, so I am not as transfixed as I was when I was a much more innocent 23 year old.) I found some the theories still hold up. And others do not. I still find both David and Bella much more important relationships for Shirley and something that I still learn from. I think that my need to read the book was because of what she had in those friendships and how they were guides (David) and supportive (Bella) to her pursuits and needs. And that is why I gave the book 5 stars. It is the most beautiful part and the part that stands the test of time.

Southern Attraction- The College YearsSouthern Attraction- The College Years by Tracy Kauffman
Southern Attraction-The College Years continues the journey with Heather Brandon and her amazing boyfriend Jake as they go off to college. Heather struggles with insecurities of her past while trying to find a peaceful life. She had dealt with enough heartache to last a lifetime, including losing her parents, and surviving a tornado that ripped apart her new home. She wants Jake to settle down so they can enjoy their life together. Now all she wants to do is live a life of happiness and not worry about the man she loves.

I received the book from the author for an honest review.

The story is very good, the relationship between Jake and Heather showed that you can overcome the obstacles when you believe in each other. PTSD is very real, important and the sufferer’s torment about past happenings, very traumatic. It is also an honest portrayal. It is with knowledge about both the people who suffer from it and those who live with the people who suffer from it and what they go through. It is an important issue that needs to be understood by the public.

I do have to admit that this was a hard book for me to read, the characters were so distant. I know that angst is compelling but there should be some relief, some comic moments. Humor is always a good way for people to survive torment. It is why there is always humor in a thriller, the audience can only take so much. It would make so much easier for the reader.

I do recommend the book, it is a well done depiction of people who love each other, finding their way.

Book Review; 

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (Harry Potter, #3)Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by J.K. Rowling
I have to admit this has always been my favorite of the series. I think because of two of the new characters and what they mean to Harry. I also love how Hermione has grown up and she really is becoming her own person. Of course like any preteen she makes major mistakes like taking too many classes, but that just makes you love her more and relate to her more. Poor Harry really goes through the ringer and I appreciate J.K Rowling allows this young man to be competent but make mistakes and be downright confused. I love how he reacts in a certain part when Hermione takes him on a certain trip, (sometimes it is really hard to avoid spoilers.) Ron has always been us to me. He says what the audience would say and reacts the way we do too. It’s hard not to love them. This is the story that you see a glimpse of the adults they will become. I adore Lupin, he is very real to me. Like my best teachers, the ones that always made me think.

Anything else I say would give the game away, but it is my favorite and an exquisite story.

Casting, Chatting and Reviews….

Casting for radio actors for Sherri’s Playhouse, I have three plays coming up and could use some heavy lifting.¬† No pay but a lot of exposure and you get to meet people from all over via our rehearsals.¬† We rehearse on Skype and perform on my Blogtalk platform. It is a lot of fun and we get to act in some truly amazing plays.¬† We do the radio plays live, it’s a high wire act like live TV back in the day, so if you want to do something completely different, get in touch with me.

Mentoring, Hamlet, Patreon, interviews and other scattered subjects this week!

I have taken up with an idea about mentoring a few writers.  Just to get my toes wet. My mentoring is for a targeted period on a retainer for 10-15 hours specific targeted help. Non refundable.
If you like the support you can re-sign up. And as part of that deal you get a free interview on Chatting with Sherri for your new book with all the advertising that goes with that. Afterwards we can discuss how you did and how you can use the knowledge toward your own platform. Sound me a note if your interested at; https://www.facebook.com/RithebardWebsite/
I am giving one more month for the sale for my book’s anniversary, to celebrate; you can buy the e-book of the book for just one dollar;  https://www.amazon.com/dp/B015T985JO/EnteringMySecondHalf/?tag=authorpage03-20

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.

Interview with the wonderful Kerry Greenwood!

I am so excited to present my interview with one of my favorite writers; Kerry Greenwood! I have spent hours both reading and watching her creation; Miss Phryne Fisher in the books and the tv series; Miss Fisher Murder Mysteries. ¬†So it was cool to ask her some questions that have been on my mind about my favorite characters and how they came to be…

 

0 Kerry Greenwood 2

 

1. Thank you for taking part in my Author Q and A, to start could you tell us a bit about yourself and your background?

I was born in the Melbourne suburb of Footscray. I have a degree in English and Law from Melbourne University and was admitted to the legal profession on the 1st of April 1982, a day which I find both soothing and significant.

I have written a number of plays, including The Troubadours with Stephen D’Arcy, and has worked as a folk-singer, a factory hand, a director, a producer, a translator, a costume-maker, a cook, and also qualified as a solicitor to her great amusement. I embroider very well, cannot knit, and has flown planes and leapt out of them (with parachute) in an attempt to cure her fear of heights. I can detect second-hand bookshops through walls.

0 miss fisher book coverMy first book Cocaine Blues, a murder mystery set in the 1920s, was published by McPhee/Gribble in 1989 and, much to the author’s astonishment, was a success. The elegant and irrepressible sleuth, Phryne Fisher, has since returned (almost annually)

2. I love both your books and the TV series that was based on your books, was there one thing that just inspired it? Was there a light bulb moment for you, for Phryne?

I was sitting on a tram on my way home from seeing a publisher who didn’t want what I’d offered and want a crime move instead. I said it must be historical and on my way home Phryne just came to me. It was as if she got on the tram with her beautiful hair cut and fabulous fashion sense and her gun, and sat next me.

3. Phryne is such a great role model for girls for empowerment and self determination, when you created her did you have that in mind or was it just a happy outcome?

It was always my intention. I am a feminist and everything I wrote comes from that intrinsic fact.np-final-web-opener-1

4. DI Jack Robinson is really a lovely man in the novels but he is so different in the series, Nathan Page’s performance as Jack Robinson is very compelling and exciting were you a part of the process for the changes in his character?

Yes always. He had to be handsome for TV and I had no objection. He also had to play a more major role in Phryne’s investigations because that’s how TV series works. I was also happy about.

51845.Essie Davis is amazing as Phryne Fisher, it was the first thing that attracted me to series because she gives such a fun and dynamic performance. When you first saw Essie on film what was your reaction ?

 

I had been trawling through hundreds of   audition on video. And they were all wrong. And then suddenly there was Essie Рand it didn’t a bit that she had long hair and did not look like Phryne but she sounded like her and was immediately perfect.  The exact same thing happened when I saw Nathan and Ashleigh.

6. What was it about 1920’s that inspired you to place your novels during that time?

It was when women started to do all sorts of things they’d not done before Рpartly because the world was changing and partly because they were fewer men after World War I. Women were lawyers, doctors, they could drive cars, ride motorcycles and fly aeroplanes. It was a fascinating time.

7. How do you feel about the fan response to the TV series?
Overjoyed and a bit humbled as I never expected it to happen or to have such a great reaction. And of course it’s brought more people to my books.

8. You were recently at the launch0 nathan, essie and Kerry for the coloring book, was it fun? How do you feel about your characters in a coloring book?

The launch was fun especially as Essie and Nathan were both there. We had a lovely day. And I love colouring books so who would’t
want to colour in Phryne’s clothiers.

9. There is a lot of talk about the next project in view is a movie, are you excited?

Of course, I jump up and down a lot.

 

 

10. Do you have a new novel coming out or any other events that your fans should know about?

Yes. Another Corinna is on the way. And have recently published three volumes of erotica called Herotica and Mytherotica from Ancient to outer space.  These are currently on eBooks but my other publisher Clan Destine Press is about to do paperback as well.    http://www.clandestinepress.com.au/content/herotica-mytherotica-and-adventures-kerry-greenwood
