Inspirational Journeys Podcast

Last week, I was priviledged to be on the podcast, Inspirational Journeys, hosted by Ann Harrison-Barnes. Although this wasn’t the first time I have spoken online, it was my first real podcast. I was a bit nervous at first, but Ann was easy to talk to; so easy in fact, that the half-hour felt like two old friends gabbing over a cup of coffee.

Since you are all my friends as well, I would like to share the conversation with you. Here is the link:

Interview With Luna

Luna

 

(Harry walks on the stage with a cocky stride. The audience notices something different about him, something in the coolness of his expression. Usually, his fur is wild, like a lion, but today it is brushed until it is silky. He walks up to the microphone with even more confidence than usual)

Harry: “Hi there, folks! I have one more interview to do, and out of the four, it’s the best one. Let me present the lovely Luna.”

(A beautiful petite tabby Bengal prances onto the stage. She is feminine, but has a mischievous twinkle in her eye)

Luna: (in a soft voice that was barely audible) “Hello, Harry. Nice to see you.”

(Harry impishly grins, tongue-tied. He seems to be far away)

(Luna nudges him under the table, causing him to come out of his dreamlike state)

Harry: (clears his throat) “Yes, I’m glad that you made it. So, tell us, what are your plans, now that The Jamaican Mission is through?”

Luna: “Well, I’ve been thinking about that. I suppose I’ll just laze around until the next mission, assuming you’ll allow me to tag along on your adventure.”

Harry: (winks at Luna) “You know I will.”

(Luna blushes)

Harry: “What was your favorite part of the mission?”

Luna: (without hesitation) “Why, meeting you, of course!”

Harry: (smiles openly) “Thank you, Luna. Because we don’t want to tell too much of the story, I need to cut your interview short. The folks at home will just have to read the book to see what happens.”

Luna: (bows her head gracefully) “Thanks for having me on, Harry. (she winks and lowers her voice to a whisper) I’ll see you later.”

(This time, it is Harry’s turn to blush as Luna turns to stroll off the stage.)

Harry: (regains his composure) “Thanks to all the people at home. Don’t forget, in celebration of Harry’s second book coming out, Amazon is having a sale on The Legend of the Pink Diamond. The Jamaican Mission is on for pre-order, as well. Until next time, be safe and happy reading.”

 

Bonus Post! Interview With Bobby and Sox

Bobby

 

Bobby

 

Sox

“Harry here and for the next couple of weeks, I’m going to introduce you to the four most important characters in The Jamaican Mission. Today, we have Bobby and Sox. These brothers are tuxes who are almost identical except for the goatee that Sox sports. Let’s get to know a little bit about them.”

 

 

Sox

 

 

Harry: “Hi, boys, and welcome to my blog.”

Bobby and Sox: (in unison) “Hello, Harry!” 

(Sox looks around with eyes wide with amazement.)

Harry: “Now that The Jamaican Mission is complete, and you are about to become famous, how do you feel?”

Bobby: (steps in front of Sox and clears his throat) “I don’t know about Sox, but I’m excited. [puffs out his chest] I want the world to see just how much more helpful to the mission I was than Sox.”

(Bobby smirks at Sox, and Sox sticks his tongue out at him. Bobby looks proudly at Harry. Harry’s look told him that perhaps he had gone too far.)

Harry: (clearing his throat ) “Yes, well…” (Harry’s demeanor softened when he looked at Sox) “How about you, Sox? How do you feel?”

Sox: (looking forlorn) “I’m sad that the mission is over.”

Harry: (moved to Sox’s side and laid a comforting paw on his shoulder) “There will be others, I’m sure. After all, a cat’s work is never done.” (Harry dropped his paw and steps back behind the microphone)

“So, tell us, Bobby…what was your favorite part of the mission?”

Bobby: “My favorite part was when you chose me.”

Harry:  (nods his head) “How about you, Sox?”

Sox: (pouting) “He took my answer.”

(Bobby rolls his eyes)

Harry: (chuckles) “That’s okay. You both can have the same answer, Sox.”

(Harry clears his throat again) “So, boys, what’s next?”

Sox: (This time it was Sox who puffs out his chest) “As you know, Luna put me in charge of the Beach Gang. I have big shoes to fill. After all, Luna was a great leader.”

Bobby: “Yeah, and I get to be Sox’s co-leader.”

Harry: “Well, it sounds like you guys have it all mapped out. Good luck, and thank you for joining us today.” 

(Bobby and Sox both raised their paws to Harry as a salute and trotted off the stage)

Harry: (turns back toward the microphone) “And thank you, folks, at home for coming. I hope that you have enjoyed Bobby and Sox. Next time, I’ll have Savanna, the dog.

Until then, I want to remind you that my first book, The Legend of the Pink Diamond, is on sale on Amazon, where you can also pre-order The Jamaican Mission. So long, everybody.”

Meet Sir Aslan

Harry here! I wanted to take this time to introduce you to the most important cat in my life…Sir Aslan, otherwise know as my grandfather. Come on out here grandfather.

Sir Aslan:  How are you, Harry my boy?

Harry:  *bows* Just fine, Sir.

Sir Aslan:  *taps Harry on his head* Get up.  Today I speak to you as your grandfather and not as a knight.

Harry:  *straightens up and clears his throat* Yes Grandfather.  Well, I’m sure that my audience would like to know a little bit about you.

Sir Aslan:  Like?

Harry:  Like how did you receive your knighthood?

Sir Aslan:  *sighs* Well, as you know, I saved the Cat Princess from drowning.  The Cat King was so appreciative that he granted me a knighthood.

Harry:  How long has it been since you became a knight?

Sir Aslan:  *looks to the heavens obviously thinking* Well, it must be about seven…no eight centuries now.

Harry:  Wow! *shakes his heads in amazement*  One final question.  What was your proudest moment?

Sir Aslan:  *beams* That’s easy, Harry.  The moment I that you became a knight, too!

Harry:  *blushes and bows his head in embarrassment* Thank you, Grandfather.

Sir Aslan: *taps Harry’s head* Anytime,  my boy!  Anytime! *turns and marches out of sight*

Harry: *sighs as he watches the Great Sir Aslan retreat in silence*  Well, there you have it, my grandfather, Sir Aslan.  Read about him and the rest of the magnificent cats and their humans in Harry the Wonder Cat: The Legend of the Pink Diamond .  Preorder yours now at Amazon.

Harry:  Next week, please join us for a tour of the Cat Kingdom.

Meet Dewey

Dewey

Hi there! This is Harry coming to you from the top of The Fence.  The final cat character from the first book of the Harry the Wonder Cat series is the fastest cat in town…Dewey!  Come on out here, Dewey.

Dewey:  *skids to a stop in front of Harry*  Hey, Harry!  How’s tricks?

Harry:  *smiles* Just fine, Dewey, and I see your still living in the fast lane.

Dewey:  It’s the only way to live!

Harry:  Speaking of living, thanks again for your help in the last mission.

Dewey:  Sure, anytime Harry, you know that!

Harry:  Just a couple of questions.

Dewey:  Okay…shoot!

Harry:  You being the fastest cat, it was only right that I used you as the runner in the case.  How do you keep in shape?

Dewey:  Well, that’s easy…a lot of calisthenics and walks on the docks.

Harry:  I can see the calisthenics, but what do walks on the docks do for you?

Dewey:  *licks his chops* Why, all the fish I can eat, of course!

Harry:  *lets out a deep laugh*  Of course!       *clears his throats and waits for Dewey to stop laughing at his own joke*       Do you have another mission planned?

Dewey:  *shrugs his shoulders*  Well, right now I have a date with a salmon.  Excuse me.  *dashes towards the docks*

*Harry stares after Dewey*

Well okay then.  There you have it.  My three pals who co-star in Harry the Wonder Cat: The Legend of the Pink Diamond, which you can preorder  on Amazon now.

Next week, it’s an exciting day at home with yours truly.
