WEDU (PBS) Tampa Bay, One Pelican at a Time and Me

I had quite an interesting day on Friday.  WEDU Tampa the PBS station came to Clearwater Beach to do an interview of me about One Pelican at a Time.  I was questioned about what it's like to write books and, I can still surprisingly say, be a best selling author.

The producer, cameraman, my husband and I walked the few minutes to the beach and began.  We recreated the sand heart containing the single word, Bella, in the center. 

We put it near the surf, as the tide was ready to take it away the day I saw one similar in the sand and was inspired to begin the Bella and Britt Series. 

After the beach filming, I was interviewed at our condo about the life of an author.  What is my work day like?  Do I do much marketing?  How often do I speak with my editor?  How has being an author changed my life?

This feature was provided by a grant administered by Louisiana Public Television.  It will be available to public television stations and will begin to be aired in the Tampa Bay area next week and continuing through the month of June.

Thank you WEDU-Tampa, the Public Broadcasting Stations, Bella, Britt and Mr. Pelican.
