Sarah Webb is really animated and has a new book to give away
**Giveaway is now closed**
Just looking at this picture of Sarah Webb, I can see her as a character on an animated television series. In the show, she holds a book signing in her home town. In the middle of the signing, she's called upon to solve a town crisis and bring order back, through the powers of a magical dress she bought from her favorite vintage shop, Shoestring.....
Prior to becoming a best selling author, Sarah worked as a children's bookseller and buyer. However, these days, she is busy creating engaging stories for both children and adults while also working as a children's book consult.
Recently, Sarah is busy promoting her new book, "The Shoestring Club" (reviewed here). When she's not writing, promoting her books or consulting, Sarah spends time with her partner and their kids - Ben, Sam and AmyRose.
Though she's not a huge television watcher, we do see the potential for the words of this "Irish Independent" to leap off the pages of her books and into the bright lights of Hollywood!
So let's give a friendly Chick Lit Central welcome to the star of today's show, Sarah Webb!
To learn more about Sarah, visit her at Facebook, Twitter and her website!
Thanks to Pan Macmillan, we have a copy of "The Shoestring Club" to give away to one lucky CLC reader located anywhere in world.
Television show I MUST watch to make my week complete:
I must admit that I'm not a big television watcher at all. I tend to read in the evenings. But I do love Grey's Anatomy when it's on, I hate missing that.
Comedy, drama, reality, etc.: What is your favorite type of television show?
Drama and comedy.
Would you ever consider writing for a TV series? Why or why not?
Yes, I'd consider most things - including musicals, plays, television . . . it's all about story.
If you could create a character for a television series, what would that character be like?
I'd like to write a children's show about an Irish teenager. She'd be funny and sweet and a bit of a dreamer.
If one of your books were made into a television series, which book would it be and why?
I'd love to see Ask Amy Green, my children's series (age 10+) on the small screen because it's very Irish and shows how funny and smart Irish teenagers can be.
Growing up, what role did television play in your life?
I liked music shows and American detective shows like Hart to Hart and Murder She Wrote.
If you could star in any television show ever made, which show would it be? What character would you play and why that character?
I'd love to play myself in The Simpsons - like J. K. Rowling! A girl can dream!
TV star I’d like to meet the most:
