    Orlando Sentinel Interview!

    "Like a bolt out of the blue..."

    Yesterday was a really good day! I received an email "out of the blue" from my publisher that someone from the Orlando Sentinel wanted to do an interview later that day!!! Needless to say, I was giddy with excitement!

    I spent about 20 minutes talking to Scott Powers from the Sentinel about the books, web site, trivia and just Walt Disney World in general!

    If anyone gets the paper and happens to see the article, if possible, please either pick me up a copy (that I will pay you for as well as shipping costs, of course), or just scan it in and email it to me! Not sure what the article was consist of, how long it will be, etc., but I'm still excited nonetheless!

    Thanks!!!!
