CROCODILE IN THE CLOSET - Jamie Bryant - One Free Book

Welcome back, Jamie. Are there any new surprises in this fourth book in the series?
Yes, we introduce someone outside Denny’s immediate family; his friend, Kenny.

You have a hidden heart in all of your books. What inspired you to do this?
Many children love to look for objects and hidden things in books so I thought this would be a lot of fun. If they find it, they can e-mail me and be included in the monthly drawing for a free book of their choice.

Do you sit down and write your books all in one setting?
The actual writing of the story is usually done in a day or even an evening. Of course that’s the first of many drafts. Also depending on the story I do a lot of research on the internet; especially if it’s about a specific animal.

While growing up, what did you do for fun?
Okay, so I’ll just go ahead and date myself. My grandmother used to cut out paper dolls for me. I played outside a lot and we played tag, hide and go seek, king of the mountain, and on summer nights caught as many lightning bugs (fireflies) as we could.

On yes, I have fond memories of things like that. Any funny food stories?
Yes. My husband and I both grew up in Virginia. A few years after we were married he joined the United States Air Force and our first official base was in California. One day after church, a couple invited us to go out to a Burrito Restaurant. We both looked at her and asked, “What was a burrito?” Of course, we love Mexican food now, but had in our short life only had a taco once or twice and that was a crunchy taco shell from a box.

When James and I visited my aunt in California, we discovered there are different kinds of Mexican food in the US. We’re used to TexMex here. MexiCali food is different in a lot of ways. What’s something you do every single day?
Wake up, get a cup of coffee, and sit down to read my Bible.

What would you like to tell us about the featured book?
Crocodile in the Closet follows along with the other books in the series in that there will be a crocodile and four other animals in the closet and all animals will start with the letter “C.” Denny just wants to get his jacket out of the coat closet by the front door and keeps finding one surprise after another. You’ll have to get the book to get the full story. 

I love the fact that your books are available on Kindle, too. Parents can help their children read them on tablets. That’s very handy. A way to keep them entertained without having to carry lots of things with them. How can readers find you on the internet?

Thanks, Lena
