On this page I will be posting videos and podcasts about my books and my writing process, as well as interesting videos from elsewhere that illuminate something from my stories. Enjoy!

Ok, ok. Let's be frank. I basically bribed my oldest grandson, Stuart, to read The Riddle of Penncroft Farm. Part of the deal was that he had to answer questions about the story to show that he had actually read it. Here is part of the "quiz" we did together. (The imp in the background is Stu's younger brother, Drake.)

Below are short videos of me reading the openings of all the Izzy Elf stories.

Here's Jed Doherty, doing his magic thing. The woman in the picture is NOT me, however. : )
