SPAL: Sh! You don’t want to say that too loud. Today, Tom Conrad is coming by and I expect you to behave. Got it.
HB: ***Rolls his eyes***
SPAL: In fact, I hear him now. Everyone give him a hand.
SPAL & HB: ***both clap their paws together***
SPAL: ***Extends his paw toward Mr. Conrad.*** We’re very glad that you came today to share with us. Do tell us what you like to nosh on when you're writing?
TC: Bourbons. I eat four... six... okay, eight a day. I drink, on average... 3 cups of tea. Since taking my writing seriously, my bottom has changed from a pert and hard natural wonder of the West to a - 'I wonder if that chap is eating too many bourbon biscuits' comment at bus stops.
HB: Bottom? I find them interesting. ***he sniffs the air***
SPAL: ***he elbows Hair Ball*** Bourbons sound interesting. Are they crunchy or soft?
TC: The biscuit is crunchy. My butt is soft.
HB: I wonder what a soft butt would mean? I know what a bad butt odor means.
SPAL: Please ignore my little brother. Is your nosh salty or sweet?
TC: It's a chocolate biscuit. No comment on the other. I apologize and regret mentioning my bottom now.
HB: Why does everyone get chocolate except us? And as for your bottom, in our world they’re a big deal in learning who your enemy is. My brother says it’s the answer to solving world peace. Isn’t that right? ***he looks up at SPAL**
SPAL: ***he returns HB look***Yes. But we’re here to talk nosh and books today. ***he glances back @ Tom***Chocolate biscuits sound good.Does it get your creative juices flowing?
TC: Drinking tea, dunking aforementioned biscuits has become part of my late night ritual. If I'm writing into the night and breaking through to dawn, I need the boost of caffeine to keep me going... but more it's the break of making the tea. The caffeine probably just makes me a bit jittery.
SPAL: Mummsy drinks tea when she writes,too. Sometimes she’ll have a dark chocolate square but she doesn’t dunk them. I think they melt in hot liquid.
HB: Its not fair that all the furless peeps get to eat chocolate.
SPAL: But we’re here to get the scoop on good reads. Mr. Conrad, do you have any books published yet?
TC: I have two, they're published on Amazon. Risk Of Infection is my latest release - only short. Rich Pickings For Ravens is full length. My page is here: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Tom-Conrad/e/B007U468Y6/ref=ntt_athr_dp_pel_pop_1
Risk of Infection is also out in paperback. Unfortunately, it's a bit pricey so I'm not promoting it atm, just for family and those who really want a copy: http://www.lulu.com/spotlight/TomConrad

SPAL: Mummsy doesn’t have your books yet. But I know she likes zombies. She dreams about them.
HB: Yeah. She’s silly. Anyway, do you think you could slip us some of those chocolate biscuits before you go?
SPAL: Miss Evie says chocolate is bad for us. And Mr. Tom needs to go. I’m sure he’s got lots of writing to do like Mummsy. ***SPAL extends his paw toward Tom*** Thank you for coming by and sharing with us today.
HB: Yeah. But I bet if he shared those chocolate biscuits it would solve world hunger like butt greetings would bring world peace.
