  1. Congrats on a great interview, Matthew and Marcie! Just finished listening and had to comment on this one. I’m a behind-the-scenes junkie and loved hearing how SHPBs and Love, Triangle came to be. Fascinating! Thanks for sharing.

  2. OK, after hearing this podcast and Matthew reading from that book, I am SO looking forward to feeling that (as mentioned) sense of accomplishment of reading this WHOLE series! I’ve had the pleasure of meeting your sweet self at the NJ conference, Marcie, and that made hearing all this that much more special πŸ™‚

    P.S. Marcie, you’re not weird watching kids cartoons, trust me πŸ˜‰ I don’t do it as much as I used to, but certainly as far as literature, I almost never read adult stuff! lol And I can’t say how great your anecdote about your “revelation” of knowing you wanted to write PBs in relation to your boyfriend/husband—how wonderful! πŸ˜€

    P.P.S. You guys, the whole “pull the idea from the universe” concept was a big part of the book by Sarah Ban Breathmach: SIMPLE ABUNDANCE: A DAYBOOK OF COMFORT AND JOY. It was given to me back in Aug. 1986 and only read misc. excerpts, that being something I remember. I have no idea if she came up with that concept though!
