TGIF September 11, 2009! Author Patrick Shannon

TGIFriday! I have uploaded a new show to my podcast this week!

Today Patrick Shannon joins the podcast to share his work of fiction, Viva Cisco, with the Writers in the Sky audience. This book, aimed primarily at younger readers, details a world of fantasy in which a parrot named Cisco is willing to try anything to become famous. After several unsuccessful attempts to develop new talents, Cisco leads his friends on an adventure that may finally be the path to his desired fame. Patrick Shannon will discuss how he created the unique story idea, how adults and children alike can enjoy the stories, and the message that he hopes to share with readers through Cisco the parrot.
