    If you’re a fairly devoted Hallmark fan like me, you probably noticed a new face last year during Hallmark’s summer movies series in the film called Stop the Wedding, but no doubt many Hallmark fans knew about Niall Matter long before that. Hearties will remember him as the single father, Shane, who kissed Faith on their first date. And fans of Finding […]

    I had the supreme joy and honor of interviewing author Robin Jones Gunn before the premiere of her book turned movie last year entitled Finding Father Christmas, and I was immensely excited when I learned there was going to be a sequel this year. In spite of Robin’s incredibly busy personal and professional life, she took a few moments recently to […]

    Unleashing Mr. Darcy is a movie that always has held a special place in my heart because I have connected with practically the entire cast through interviews and more. I have also connected with some of the people behind the scenes, most notably, David Winning. During my nearly two years of interviews, anyone who has ever worked with David lavishes […]

    A few months ago, thanks to the vivacious Tammy Gillis, the accomplished actor Jim Thorburn was brought to my attention (they are married, in case you were unaware). While his name was somewhat unknown to me, his talent and works included some of my classic and current favorites. As I have been faithfully following his career all this time now, I […]

    Learning to knit is quite straightforward; you simply need to understand how to cast on, create kit stitches and then cast off. With a little practice, you can be doing this in your sleep! However, this is only the very basics of knitting; there are hundreds of different patterns and techniques which can help improve the look and feel of […]

    I happened to be watching one of last year’s new favorite Christmas movies–Finding Father Christmas–and for whatever reason, the music suddenly captivated me. I don’t know why I hadn’t noticed it before. In my opinion, music which accompanies made-for-TV movies all too often leaves much to be desired. But with this film, the music is an impeccable complement to the […]

    Well, who would expect to “discover” a Hallmark starlet at an independent film festival? To be honest, I had seen the work and the name of Aliyah O’Brien before on various Hallmark works. Moreover, I’d even reviewed her work in a Garage Sale Mystery film a while back. But until I saw her in a short film at the Artemis […]

    The use of technology and social media has made it easier than ever to connect with family and friends and to know what’s going on in the world with just a single swipe on a phone screen. However, the use of certain gadgets—and even social media fads—have been proven to cause harm to a person’s health and even to one’s […]

    Because of my friend Rick Ravanello (who guest-starred on the show once last season, but apparently met an untimely death), I first was made aware of the show Lethal Weapon. Initially, I was enticed to view this show on his recommendation, but from the moment I witnessed the opening scene of the pilot episode, I was hooked. And the actress who […]

    Because David Haydn-Jones was a long-term guest star on season twelve of Supernatural where he portrayed the incomparable Mr. Ketch, I found myself thrust into a new community of fans as well as a steady stream of splendid actors with whom I was previously unfamiliar. Due to David’s unwavering support for his fellow actors, I “discovered” Chelsea Gill, an actress of […]
