A Stellar Review and an Interview
Posted August 25, 2012on:
Some days are just worth waking up to and today has been astounding!
Amanda in Arabia-The Perfume Flask was given a stellar review by a wonderful mother and daughter team I had the pleasure of meeting at one of my book signings. This dynamic duo, Renee and Danielle, have a blog where they review books they have read together. Parents who encourage their children to read and then discuss the reading with them are providing a great education to the future generation. This is what they had to say about Amanda’s adventure:

If that wasn’t enough to make my day, I was also interviewed by my amazing publisher, Michelle at Central Avenue Publishing
On Being a Small Press Author – Darlene Foster
Today, I’m proud to present Darlene Foster, a Canadian author who has written three young reader books all belonging to the Amanda series. Darlene’s books have been very well received both locally and internationally. Her newest book, Amanda in England: The Missing Novel has just been released. She is actually one of the few Canadian authors we have and she just happens to live about a 15 minute drive away from me. I met her in person, at a local writer’s group and I’m very glad I did.
1. The first book I can remember reading is:
Goldilocks and The Three Bears
2. The first book I ever wrote was: Amanda in Arabia-The Perfume Flask
