My Holiday guest is Lea Shivaz

Thanks so much for coming by for a visit, Lea,                               

I’m glad to be here, thanks for having me.

You are one of the busiest women I know. Lea is the founder of the MuseOnline Writers Conference and maintains the Museonline writers group, as well as numerous blogs and websites. And, she still has time to write and occassionally dog sit. Tell us about your bookBubba & Giganto: Odds Against Them.

Bubba  hates it when his dad gets a contract for a new project. That means uprooting the family from one city and moving to another. Attending a new school is a major pet peeve of his. His smart alecky nature attracts the bullies in every school he’s attended.

 On the first day of school, Bubba bumps into this rather large student. Fearing a confrontation, he wears his tough guy attitude and waits for the punches to begin. Remarkably, the new student apologizes, and Bubba and David (aka Giganto as Bubba eventually nicknames him) become best friends.

 Bubba and Giganto try out for the high school soccer team, and that’s when trouble begins. Bubba knew eventually he’d meet the bullies of the school, and he was right.

 In the first initial weeks, Bubba learns about a death that occurred the previous year; faces the bullies on several occasions; helps Giganto practice soccer before tryouts; and challenges the bullies to a scrimmage.

 Little does Bubba know Giganto holds a secret – one that will place Giganto in a deadly situation.

Lea, this sounds like a great children’s book. Where can people get for a Christmas gift?
