E Train's Book Review's Segment
In episode 1 of my "Good Day Sacramento" book review segment, I review stories dealing with the important topic of our environment! Watch as I talk about the witty & important "Consider the Octopus!" by award winning authors, Gae Polisner & Nora Raleigh Baskin. I also share my thoughts on the popular & entertaining "Max Einstein" series, by the world's best selling author, James Patterson.
I was thrilled & grateful to be featured on GoodDay on 8/1/22! Watch me talk about my book journey in this video!
I was honored to be asked to share my book Journey with the Canadian writing community of BookFlap, and I invite you to watch my Mini Masterclass on inspiring kids to read. I had so much fun making this video!

It was great fun being interviewed by the Reluctant Readers books. Reluctant Reader Books produce and promote books that appeal to children who – for whatever reason – don’t enjoy reading.

It was an absolutely INCREDIBLE EXPERIENCE interviewing the amazing Lisa McMann in-person at Capitol Bookstore in Sacramento, California! Lisa's not only a wonderful person, but she's also the New York Times Bestselling Author of “The Unwanteds,” “The Unwanteds Quests,” and her newest series “The Forgotten Five!” When I say she's a middle-grade author extraordinaire, I truly mean it! If you're a fan of dragons, friendship, and pigs, you'll enjoy not just this interview, but Lisa's books too!
It was an absolute honor to interview the one and only James Ponti! James is both a New York Times & International Bestselling author of NOT ONE, but three Middle-Grade book series, Wow! And, you might also be surprised to hear that James is also an Emmy–nominated television writer and producer who’s worked for television networks, such as Nickelodeon, Disney Channel, and PBS, to name a few! He’s also the recipient of the prestigious EDGAR ALLAN POE AWARD. We discuss all that and more in our entertaining chat! Be on the lookout for "Motherisms" along the way!
In this video, I discuss the wonderful "Coming of Age, 13 B'nai Mitzvah Stories" anthology with six of the thirteen authors. In our conversations, we talk about combating anti-Semitism with numbers higher than ever, Jewish traditions, and so much more! I adore all these incredible writers, and after watching this panel interview, so will you! It's important now more than ever to have these kinds of conversations, and we hope you'll join us in the fight for diversity, and acceptance!
So Excited and honored to be included in the book trailer of the THE CURIOUS LEAGUE OF DETECTIVES AND THIEVES! I'm the guest voice of the MC John Boarhog! Enjoy!
