BearManor author Cathy Sherman Freeman has created a website for you to find out more about her life and her book, 'A Disney Childhood: Comic Books to Sailing Ships.'
As promised, here are the confirmed dates and times of the interviews with Jan Pippins and Henry Darrow:
The interview with Henry airs Tuesday April 3 at 3:30 PM and 6:30 PM Pacific Time.
We are thrilled with the response 'Lightning in the Bottle' has received, including the following reviews (taken from the official Henry Darrow Book website: http://henrydarrowbook.com/):
From Barnes & Noble:
“...If you are interested in the history of TV westerns, especially High Chaparral, this is a good read. This book tells the interesting, never dull life of Henry Darrow (Manolito from High Chaparral), growing up Puerto Rican, the obstacles he overcame breaking into acting at a time there were few roles for Hispanics, his personal growth as a husband and father in a time when attitudes regarding race and gender were evolving. You'll love him for his determination, his faults and his charm. You'll like the book because it's well written, well documented and never boring...”
“...What a wonderful book! Couldn't put it down. Unlike some biographies that read like instruction manuals, this one is filled with heart and wonderfully written! What an amazing man he must be! Truly inspirational. I loved all the stories, but was particularly fond of the section on NWZ [New World Zorro]...”
From the High Chaparral discussion group:
“...I couldn’t stop reading. If you haven’t ordered your copy, DO IT!”

We all need a bit of soap in our lives, but in this case I don't mean the kind we use in the shower, but the tremendous TV programme 'Soap' that graced our screens in the 1970s.
