Xena; Their Courage Changed Our World and interviews…

Sherri’s Playhouse presented the radio play; Dimness  :  ! This was a combned show with the interview, it went very well to some excellent reviews. I am reprising it with just the play, it is very short but people might like that fact; on 9/10/20 at 7pm pt;

I am sorry about all the delays on Sherri’s Playhouse, they are due to the pandemic and sickness, (not covid but something debilitating.)  We will be back we have a bunch of great stuff in store for you, so hold on to your hats!


Yesterday was the 25th anniversary of one my favorite shows.  Thank you to the creators, writers, directors, actors, cinematographers, make up and hair, stunt people and every single person that created this gem. Know that your appreciate and loved. Speaking of that;


On Sept 8th at 1pm pacific time I’m delighted to present this amazingly fun chat with Mary D Brooks about Xena; Their Courage Changed Our World ;  !  Mary and I met at Xena Convention many years ago, we both had a book signing, It was my very first one and I was nervous, I sat next to Mary who put me right at ease joking and chatting with me and the authors and the people asking to have us sign our books. It was one of those special moments that forged a lifetime freindship. That is what this book is all about, how the show touched the fans. There are people in it who took part in the show like Steven L Sears who wrote in the book but he is writing about us fans too. This show changed many lives for the better, through friendship, charity and inspiration. And really isn’t that what art is all about?

Chatting With Sherri welcomed back Screenwriter/Producer/Author Brooks Wachtel!  I always have a great time chatting with Brooks, he is so smart and he knows about almost every film I love. Including the classic The Time Machine with the great Rod Taylor.  I love his stories, that is why I can’t wait for the next part of Lady Sherlock;




Chatting With Sherri welcomed actor, scenic designer & production electrician and Foreman; of the Disney electrical Dept; Pat Osos  he was delightful with all kinds of behind the scenes stores we actully have a hero in common you have to listen to find out who it is;

The Woman on the Orient ExpressThe Woman on the Orient Express by Lindsay Jayne Ashford
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I didn’t read the previews, I had no idea what it was about except it was Agatha Christie on the Orient Express. So as a lover of Agatha Christie I had to read it. I really enjoyed it, I loved how she wove her real life with this fictional account. The results of reading it, I picked up one of the books inspired in real life to her trip to the dig site. My only critique is that the dates are wildly off on one of the real life people, I won’t tell who because it will spoil the plot, but he is revealed at the end of the book.

Five Complete Miss Marple Novels: The Mirror Crack’d, A Caribbean Mystery, Nemesis, What Mrs. McGillicuddy Saw!, The Body in the Library by Agatha Christie

Well, I had read all the Miss Marple books in this volume before, but the first thing that struck me was that the order of the books made no sense. The Mirror Crack’d first, makes no sense at all, since the volume includes The Body in the Library which came first. What Mrs. McGillicudy Saw was also set and written before the first book. I am not sure what the publishers were thinking.

The stories are all brilliant and I enjoyed re-reading the books. I always enjoy Miss Marple and reading these books I found I forgotten parts or replaced them in my mind with adaptions in TV or movies.

The one I enjoyed a lot and forgotten the most was Nemesis. I think I had read the book once or twice but I had completely replaced it in my mind with the adaptions which all have a nephew accompanying her but in the book she went alone. And the Professor was far more involved in the story then in the adaptions.

I know that one stop shops are not really that popular because of the order the books are placed but it is also a way to have several of one of your favorite authors at your fingertips. So I do recommend it.
