In the studio with award winning Alysson Bourque, author of the Alycat Series of children's books. The series has gained loyal followers both in the United States (where her books were included in the Swag Bags at the Oscars AND the Grammy's!) and an equally strong following in the United Kingdom, with the support of Sarah Ferguson, The Duchess of York, who chose Alysson's book series to be a part of the Duchess's 'Storytime with Fergie and Friends' on YouTube. This busy mom (inspired by her children to write) describes a writing journey from elementary school teacher to law school grad, to her work as Assistant Attorney General for the state of Louisiana, combined with hours of hard work and a true passion for writing. Her current book 'Alycat And The CattyWampus Wednesday" (available now on Amazon) delights young audiences with the story of a cat named AlyCat who solves problems '"with a big heart and a creative imagination"'. We also discuss the story behind Alysson's book marketing company 'Forward Publicity'. It's a writing journey you don't want to miss. Join us!

About the Spotlight Conversations podcast:
Join me as I invite friends inside my cozy linoleum free recording studio to talk about all things media - radio, television, music, voiceovers - if they've worked in media, we're talkin'! Unscripted and nearly always entertaining, each guest gets real about their careers in the entertainment biz; from where they started to how it's going. Join us in the studio where drinks are always on ice; music + media are the conversation starters. New episodes every other Tuesday.
