Leanne Shirtliffe: Don’t Lick The Minivan (and other things I never thought I’d say to my kids)

moving the podcast – interview from May 22, 2013


Leanne Shirtliffe is a busy woman! And still she took a big chunk of time out of her evening to sit down and talk to me about her new book Don’t Lick The Minivan!

After we figured out how to work the Google Hangout thing, we talked about her writing process, depression and raising twins. And she gives us a special sneak peek at her upcoming projects!

Random Thoughts – on ebooks

Have you ever bought a book on Kindle,

that you already owned in paper form,

because you were too lazy to get up and get it…

or turn the pages…

or deal with a book light?


Don’t judge me.
