HB: Yeah. We do this for nosh. And I’m not stupid, pansy boy. Anyway to show that, I’ve been thinking.
SPAL: You? Think? That’s hardly possible.
HB: Well, I thought if I offered my most prized possession we could get some really good eats. If you noticed, the cups worked well last week. Mr. Barry was generous. This time I’m going to offer my ball. Oh how I love this toy.
SPAL: You part with your ball? You share? We’ll see about that. Today, we’ve got Jill Twigg coming over. I think I see her now. Anyway, Mummsy knew her thirty years ago and lost contact over the years. They found each other via FaceBook.
HB: That’s so cool and she writes, too.
SPAL: And is published. Please give Jill Twigg a warm welcome everyone. ***SPAL and HB clap their paws.***
HB: I’ll be glad to give you my beautiful ball, nice lady, if you give me your nosh…I mean what do you like to nosh on while you write?
JT: I don't particularly like to nosh on anything unless I'm having a little writer's block.
HB: ***gasps and hovers over his ball***
SPAL: So when you get this writer’s block what do you do then?
JT: If I'm in a writer's block moment, I like to nosh on something crunchy. To me and it may be only me, it does seem to get the creative juices flowing. Maybe it's just that movement of my jaw, LOL...... so I'm thinking maybe a piece of gum would have done the trick rather than potato chips or chex mix.
SPAL: So chewing is linked to creative juices flowing? I knew it. I like peppermint gum. It’s good except when it gets stuck in my tail. That’s always a problem.
HB: Me, too. But what about potato chips and Chex Mix? I’ll be glad to give you my beloved ball for them.
JT: Any kind of movement usually does the trick for me as well. I will get up and maybe wash the dishes or just walk around my apartment (actually I'm pacing); but it works for me if I'm having trouble writing a certain scene.
HB: You could always chase my beloved ball around your apartment. But you have to give up your potato chips and Chex Mix first.
SPAL: ***he shoos his paws at HB*** You’re doing it again. Stop!
HB: What? I’m being nice. And I’m willing to give up something I absolutely adore.
SPAL: I apologize for my stupid brother, nice lady. Please tell us, do you have any books published.
JT: Yes. My book The Dublin Destiny was published in January of this year. You can find it at La Cajun Stuff in the Southland Mall in Houma, LA. Also they are available at tatepublishing.com andamazon.com. Goodreads.com also has it listed on their site.

SPAL: Thank you for sharing with us, nice lady.
JT: Thank you so much for letting me participate on your blog. I appreciate the chance to get some more exposure.
HB: Hey! What happened to the fair exchange deal?
