What a great year! Let’s take a trip down memory lane and revisit the authors we met in person and via e-mail during 2009 …

  • Emily Gravett, who I actually met back in 2008 during her promotion of Little Mouse’s Big Book of Fears, was the first interview that we published in 2009. Actually, it was our first ever podcast!
  • I traded e-mails with Ingrid Law to produce an interview about her debut novel, Savvy, which won a  Newbery Honor Award. She’s a fabulous author with a great personality—we even learned about her own savvy and her favorite stain-remover.
  • Our next visitor was Bonny Becker, author of the acclaimed A Visitor for Bear. We chatted about her book and what we could expect from Bear in the future, as well as a little tip on love, “All the clichés are true—as in, when you least expect it… .”

Doug E. Richards with his two kids, Ryan and Regan

Douglas E. Richards, a biotechnology executive who has degrees in both genetic engineering and business, is the author of the science-fiction mystery series titled The Prometheus Project. We reviewed the first two books in the series earlier this year and had this to say, “The Prometheus Project books are simple, intelligent, fast reads that
even a reluctant reader should have no problems getting into.” You can read the reviews here. We are very happy to share the following interview with you:

This science-fiction mystery series certainly keeps you turning the pages. It had me hooked by page two of the first book. The stars of the books are a brother sister duo who find themselves in some sticky situations that require a lot of team work and serious problem solving . The books kind of remind me of the Magic Tree House series, only a little more grown up. The Prometheus Project books are simple, intelligent, fast reads that even a reluctant reader should have no problems getting into.
