Today I had my first ever interview as an author. It was an awesome experience. The massively talented author, Tamara Heiner, who is about to publish her first novel, Perilous, scheduled for release from WiDo Publishing in the Fall 2010, was kind enough to interview me and host the event on her web site, Chasing Dreams. Please visit her great blog and leave a comment. It will be much appreciated. Thank you so much, Tamara, you're an absolute star :-) Your interview was brilliant, it made me look well good ...lol...

Well, I've posted a few sblogs (true story blogs) on SMBlooding and Crew, so I guess it's time to post one on my own blog.
Did I ever mention that my whole family are mental ...lol... Well, my mum tops them all, Mad Nan, as my kids call her :D And she thinks it's funny! Go figure! One day I was at home when I get an irate phone call ... It's my mum. She's practically screaming at me down the phone. I try and calm her down so I can understand what the hell she's going on about. I eventually get her to take some deep breaths and talk slower.
She says, "Kurt! There's a comet heading for earth! They've only just spotted it. It's coming and there's nothing they can do to stop it!"
I went cold. "What! No way, you must be mistaken! We would know about it!"
She starts going into one again, "It's on the news right now! I'm watching it! It's a live news report on Channel 4!"
By now I'm starting to feel sick. All I can think is, AHHHHH! This can't be happening! I put the phone down and ran upstairs to put the telly on in my bedroom. I can't let the kids see this. I switch it onto Channel 4. I see a live news report from American TV. The presenters are CRYING! They're saying there's a comet heading for earth and there's nothing anyone can do to stop it. I immediately know that we are going to die. No if's or but's, we're going to DIE!
I can't even begin to explain how I feel. My three kids are playing happily downstairs. I can hear them. I'm clutching my head and breathing deeply as my wife comes rushing into the bedroom to see what all the fuss is about. I tell her, and point to the telly. We both stand there staring at it open-mouthed. I can't even speak. I've never been so gobsmacked in my whole life.
She says, "Check the other channels! It must be on the other channels!" I flick through, but find nothing. Les rushes out of the room and runs downstairs. All I can do is sit and watch this unbelievable spectacle on the telly. A million scenarios are running through my mind. I still can't believe this is happening, but it's staring me right in the face.
My wife runs back in the room and throws the TV guide at me. "Your ****** mother!" she yells at me. "It's not the news, it's a movie!"...lol...
I phoned my mum back straight away. I was tempted not to bother and let her continue thinking the world was about to end ...lol... And I have to confess, it was totally out of character, but I swore at her quite a lot :D
If it's not one thing, it's your mother...lol...
Truth Teller by Kurt Chambers
How can ten-year-old Charlotte ever envisage that magic really exists? The place for other realms belongs in a child’s fairy tale. Or so she thinks, until she discovers the strange shopkeeper and begins an adventure that changes her life forever.
Discovered alone in a far away forest, Charlotte embarks on a journey encountering heart-stopping dangers and real life monsters, but a far greater threat shadows her every move. Even the strength and skill of her new companions cannot protect her against a ruthless druid assassin.
But in this realm, Charlotte is not the vulnerable little girl she thought she was.
