Winner of a gold seal of excellence from
Mom’s Choice Awards!



alexandra green kittyInterview:

Tell us about your book?

Green Kitty-Stories My Grandma Still Remembers is full of true, heart warming and funny animal stories. The book was written to help children understand dementia in an entertaining manner. But it has been called a book for all ages and for anyone who loves animals. It just won a gold seal of excellence from the prestigious Mom’s Choice Awards as well as placing as a finalist for both Book of the Year and International Book of the Year in children’s fiction.


What inspired you to write it?

Having grown up on a farm and being surrounded by animals all my life, I have collected many varied anecdotes about pets and other animals. But the inspiration to write the book came from working as a nurse in an assisted living facility and seeing so many children who didn’t know what was happening to their grandparents or how to respond to the their illness.


Have you always enjoyed writing?

Actually, I hate to write. English was my worst subject in school. But writing this work was a labor of love because of all the people that I know that are affected by dementia.


What type of work do you do?

I have been a registered nurse since 1978 and love being able to help people with their problems. There is a huge amount of joy in seeing that something that I did made someone’s life better.


Is this book related to your work in some way?

My book sneaks information about dementia into a book that children will want to read because of the amusing stories and to solve the mystery mentioned in the opening chapter.


What do you hope readers will “take away” from reading your book?

The “take away” from Green Kitty should be the feeling of family love and caring that the book expresses and tries to share.


Who do you think will benefit most from this book?

Families who are experiencing the trauma of life with someone with dementia or related memories issues are the ones that will receive the most from Green Kitty.


Who are you speaking to?

The intended audience for Green Kitty is both people who love animal stories and families dealing with elderly victims of memory problems.



About the author: Alexandra Faer Bryan

A mother, nurse and author who loves to read, Alexandra began writing in 1985. She has written three very different books since then: an instructional manual for a massage class, a nonfiction account of her nursing experiences, and this children’s book. Her fondest memories of being a young mother are of reading books out loud to her son. Dementia is a cause close to her heart because her mother and others in her family have suffered with the disease.



Meet Bobbie Asad – The Mad Hatter & Author

bobbieAsad-Mad HatterInterview with:

Bobbie Asad

Owner of the MAD HATTER

and Author of:

Tucker’s Story



Bobbie you have such an amazing personal story, in addition to your two new books, that I know will inspire our audience. Can you share with us why the “Mad Hatter” Shop came to life?

After working for 30+ years in consulting engineering firms, as an Electrical Designer, I was laid off and there weren’t any jobs in my area. I thought about the things I enjoy, which are hats and tea, and decided to open Mad Hatter with those two things, and have expanded it with gifts and specialty food items.


After such a long career in an entirely different field, did you feel as if you discovered a new passion or unleashed an ever-present one?

It was definitely a new passion! While I loved hats and teas for many years, it never occurred to me that I may one day be selling them. The writing for Mad Hatter Tea Society (a short story) was fun, then I decided I wanted to tell Tucker’s story.


Your Mad Hatter Shop is in downtown Fuquay-Varina, North Carolina. What can visitors to your shop expect to discover?


Mad Hatter is a small quaint shop (only 225 square feet), it is whimsical and fun. Visitors will discover teapots, teacups, teas, tea accessories, specialty food products made in North Carolina, hand lotions, sprays, and soaps made locally. Hats are just the beginning at Mad Hatter.


You are a member of the Red Hat Society. Whenever I see a Red Hat Society group of women, I always think “one of these days I am joining for sure!” For those who aren’t familiar with the RHS can you tell us a bit about RHS?


The Red Hat Society is a group of ladies 50+ who get together to have fun. Each group decides what they enjoy doing…..our group goes to cooking classes, plays, to afternoon teas, and lunch, and so much more. Ladies wear purple clothes and red hats, so we are easily recognized anywhere we go.


bobbie asad-mad hatterIt seems as if once you were settled in to this “new calling” another passion was unleashed. You are now the author of 2 books: Mad Hatter Tea Society and Tucker’s Story. Before we talk about these 2 sweet books, can you share with us how writing, plays a role in what you do now?


Actually writing is just something fun to do, all of us have ideas that we think would make an interesting book, so I decided to start working on those ideas now that I have a little more time than I use to. Hopefully people will enjoy the books.


Tell us what inspired you to write Mad Hatter Tea Society and can you share with us what to expect in this book?


I love going to afternoon teas and wearing hats, so this one is about ladies that wonder into a hat shop, purchase some hats and decide on a whim to go to Afternoon Tea. Both of these things are new experiences for them, and who better to experience new things with than a friend? It is a short story, so it doesn’t take very long to read.


BobbieAsad-Tuckers StoryI am very interested in the story behind your newest book, Tucker’s Story. Who is Tucker and what motivated you to create this “fiction story based on truth?”


Tucker is a dog I adopted a couple of years ago. He was dropped off in a rural area by his previous owners. I will never know why they did this, but they must have cared a lot about him up to this point, as he was very well trained. He is an amazing dog, and a lot of good things have happened to him since then, as told in the story.


So what’s next for you? Is there another book in the works?


Yes, there is another book…..about a previous dog before Tucker. This one is about Truman, a Belgian Malinois that I adopted from the shelter when she was five weeks old. That’s right, Truman was a girl. Someone is working on the illustrations for this book, and once they are complete, it will be published.

In 1946 Judy arrived in Great Britain and was awarded the Dicken Medal which is the highest bravery award for animals and went on to live another 4 years with fellow POW survivor and “best friend” Frank Williams in Britain and Africa.

In this incredible true story “Judy” the heroine of the book narrates her own version of her life.

Her amazing life started precariously as a young pup living rough on the streets of Shanghai where any food and comfort was in short supply. She had the great good fortune to be rescued from the streets by a young Chinese girl called Lee Ming and a few days later a chance meeting with some British sailors visiting her dog pound changed her life for ever.

Judy tells us of her early idyllic, carefree years as a dog mascot aboard the British Gun Boat HMS Gnat, life was good for Judy until Japanese aggression in China spilled out to full blown war in Asia and the Pacific. Judy’s many adventures include:

  • Nearly drowning after falling into the river from the deck the HMS Gnat
  • Being bombed and sunk while on board HMS Grasshopper
  • Surviving a 200 forced march through jungle trying to reach the last of the rescue boats in Padang, Indonesia
  • Surviving another sinking in boat that was torpedoed in the Malacca Strait
  • On top of all that she went on to survive 3 brutal years in various Japanese POW camps

Book Description:

Written by a family for your family, Towering Tiger by Michael Wills (with a helping hand from his two young daughters) gives a fantastic insight into the minds, lives and imaginations of these fascinating creatures: from hunting to swimming. Available exclusively as a downloadable e-book, Towering Tiger is aimed at children of all ages – and their adults!

A great balance of fact and fiction, this e-book is packed with humor (which will appeal as much to grown-ups as kids) and interspersed with true, educational snippets about tigers. It’s also superbly illustrated with a selection of gorgeous, fun, colorful photos that children will love to look at. The text is simple enough for a preschooler to understand, easy enough for a second-grader to try to read alone, yet interesting enough to keep older children amused too.
