Check Out Hook of a Book’s Interview for Freaks: Perfect for Summer Reading!

Hey friends!

Need some ideas for summer reading? Thanks to the wonderful literary whiz, Erin Sweet Al-Mahari of  “Oh, the Hook of a Book,”  an interview she conducted with me about my third book, “A Year in the Company of Freaks” has just been posted on her blog.  Read it here.

Whether you’ve read “Freaks” yet or not, for those of you who  love to know the person and the story behind the stories you read, you should check it out. And if you have read the book already, and like it, please do me a favor and let others know, by either sharing with friends, suggesting it to your book club, or simply by writing a review on Amazon.

Here’s hoping you have a wonderful summer ahead of you, full of great food (barbecues!) friends, family, fellowship and lots of outdoor fun and recreation. I plan on doing all of the above with the extra added benefit of RELAXATION. I currently have about six books on my nightstand to aid me toward that goal!

With that, I’ll leave you with a short excerpt from Erin’s interview, just to give you a taste of what you’ll get reading “Freaks”:

Today, I’m hosting the lovely Teresa Neumann straight from Oregon for an interview! When I think of her, I think of this – fun times with friends and family enjoying food and wine. She’s a great person and talented writer. She’s also not new to this blog, as I’d reviewed her Italian historical fiction books year ago, but it’s been a little while and she has since written a new book, “A Year in the Company of Freaks.” This novel was a bit of a departure from her other books, which we discuss in the interview below so you’ll want to keep reading.

“Freaks” is a novel that showcases life of those growing up in the 60s and 70s in California. I can’t say I’ve ever read a book like this, and it certainly was an eye-opening adventure for me as I don’t delve into this time period too much. What drew me in so much when I started reading the book early last year was the way their dialogue made me laugh. Her easy writing style will have you turning pages when you don’t even mean to keep reading and the characters will become so real that you swear they exist.
