For this very special episode, Andy and I were joined by one of our favorite authors, Jae. It’s been just over two years since Jae chatted with us on episode 21 and there was a lot to catch up on! This was one of those rambling episodes that took us all over the place but we tried to stay primarily focused on Second Nature. I led us astray a lot. But many of you are used to that so it should be ok. Be sure to go over to Jae’s website. She’s got loads of information for readers and writers there.
Jae suggested Amaretto Apple Juice so that’s what she and I had while Andy was still recovering from her shots of whiskey at breakfast. She blamed Barbara Ann Wright’s portrayal of her as a drunkard in the Cocktail Hour Blooper Reel video for her decline into alcohol abuse. Jae has offered up her services when we schedule the intervention, so it’s all good. To make the delish cocktail, pour 1 part amaretto and 3 parts apple juice over ice. I made a double because it was yummy!
For all of you listeners who love to win things, this is truly a special episode. Jae and Ylva Publishing are offering more items for you than any other show we’ve ever had!

Leave your comment here no later than September 6th to be eligible to win. Andy and I will pick the winners during the next show.
I spent some time looking at various videos of cats and olives and I picked this one because I’m partial to pets named “Dusty.”
