    Approximately three years ago, I had the extraordinary pleasure of connecting with a man who has since become one of my dearest friends. Typically when I interview someone, I do not know the actor personally, but in the case of Sebastian Spence, we have a fairly extensive history. He has consistently been supportive of my writing (even when it was […]

    About a year or so ago, I had the pleasure of interviewing the talented young man, Connor Stanhope.

    I remember the first time I saw Jason Cermak on my TV screen. He played what Hearties often refer to as “Hot Doc,” and unfortunately, we were only treated to his talents in one additional episode in season three of When Calls the Heart. Thankfully, we saw him in mystery films, a Hallmark film here and there, and once in awhile […]

    More often than not, I have fellow Hallmark fans to thank for virtually introducing me to actors and actresses who are new to Hallmark (but very rarely new to the entertainment universe), and in the case of Jen Lilley, that is one hundred percent accurate. Not being a soaps aficionado myself, I rely on my friends who are to “fill […]

    Sometime last year, Cameron Mathison was gracious enough to grant me a brief interview, and while I have been a longtime supporter of his, as a result of that interview, my respect for him as a person and a professional was multiplied considerably. I know how busy he is between work and family, but a few months ago, I reached […]

    Because of my commitment to featuring and interacting with the entire cast of any production, last year I had the honor of interviewing Michael Karl Richards, known to “Chessies” as the much-hated Wes Winters, ex-husband of Abby {Meghan Ory} on the original Hallmark series Chesapeake Shores. While we fans often cringed when his character appeared on screen, that was merely […]

    One common phobia many people deal with is the fear of confined spaces. This fear is known as claustrophobia. One of the reasons why it’s such a common phobia is there are countless confined spaces found in everyday life. Some examples include elevators, airplanes, parking garages and subway cars.

    Being the Hallmark enthusiast that I am, I do tend to notice when changes occur behind-the-scenes on this network’s popular films and shows. Last year, during the first season of Chesapeake Shores, I had the privilege of interviewing John Tinker, season one show runner for this amazing show. I knew a change was occurring this season, and I am ecstatic to […]
