A Christmas Story House with Triple Dog Dare

Cleveland Christmas celebrity photo bomb! See the person entering the gate to A Christmas Story House behind me?

What an adventure I had yesterday! Cleveland, Ohio TV news anchors from Fox 8 News slept overnight at A Christmas Story House on Monday, Nov. 13th. Early Tuesday morning, they broadcast their morning show live from the living room of the House. Luckily, they invited me to join them to talk about my latest book Triple Dog Dare. Since this was the morning show, I decided to join them in my Christmas pajamas. It was so much fun!

After my live interview as I was leaving the House, I bumped into actor Patty Johnson. She played the hysterically funny mean elf that drags Ralphie up the stairs to visit with Santa Claus. Johnson was on her way into the House to join the Fox 8 anchors just after me. We exchanged pleasantries and I directed her to the back door entrance. I knew they were waiting for her, so I didn't want to hold her up by asking for a photo. I was also a little star struck! How awesome is it to bump into one of the movie's cast?

If you're interested in checking out my interview, watch the brief video clip above. If you don't have your own copy of Triple Dog Dare yet, or are looking to get one as a gift, author-signed copies are available for purchase from the publisher's website here: http://www.1701press.com/the-triple-dog-dare

I was very pleased to sign copies for each of the anchors.
