Barnes & Noble in Tennessee Book Tour Entry #8
Posted March 11, 2020

THANK YOU to the Collierville, TN Barnes & Noble for hosting a Britfield and the Lost Crown book signing!

If you are in the area, make sure to drop by and get your own copy!

Super-fun facts about Tennessee that I bet that you didn’t know:

  1. Next time you’re heading to your favorite fishing hole, leave the lasso at home. It’s illegal to catch a fish by this means in the Volunteer State.
  2. A lot of places claim they invented Mountain Dew, but according to the company the neon syrupy goodness was first created in Knoxville in the ’30s as a new drink to mix with whiskey.
  3. Tennessee is bordered by more states than any other state, except for Missouri, with which it ties at eight. The states are Kentucky, Virginia, North Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Arkansas, and Missouri.

Thanks for reading!  C. R.

SHREVEPORT, LA

I really enjoyed this group of highly engaged 4th and 5th graders at St. Mark’s! Thank you for inviting me to introduce you to Britfield and the Lost Crown and share with you all about the importance of creativity and the spark living within each child!

And now for a few little factoids about Shreveport and Louisiana:

  1. This is Southern Maid Donuts’ turf! No other donut compares according to the Shreveport locals! Anyone who chooses the Krispy Kreme route more than likely doesn’t have a “318” at the beginning of their cell phone number!
  2. Shreveport Is home to the Mudbugs Hockey Team – Q: What exactly is a mudbug, though? A: Crayfish are freshwater crustaceans resembling small lobsters. They are also known as crawfish, crawdads, freshwater lobsters, mountain lobsters, mudbugs, or yabbies.
  3. In the beginning, masks worn during Mardi Gras allowed float riders to escape society and class restraints, allowing them to be whomever they’d like to be. Today, float riders are required by law to wear masks or paint their face to keep the festive traditions and mystery alive.

Thanks for traveling along with me!  C. R.

San Antonio, Texas is STUNNING and I had a BLAST with the students & staff at NWHCS! Thank you for inviting me to share my passion – Creativity & Storytelling!

Awesome factoids about San Antonio Texas:

  1. San Antonio was the first city in the U.S. to have an air-conditioned office building – the Milam Building – back in 1928. Imagine surviving summer in TX without one!
  2. The first-ever Church’s Chicken was in San Antonio – actually right across from the street from the Alamo back in 1952.
  3. Shaquille O’Neal went to Robert G. Cole High School in San Antonio. There, the skinny, nearly 7-foot-tall teenager led his team to a 36-0 state championship record in 1989 (they had a 68-1 record over two years). He also still holds the state record for number of rebounds in a season, with 791!

Until my next state,

C. R.

Lake Charles, Louisiana – Book Tour entry #5
Posted February 20, 2020

So thankful for the warm welcome I have received in Beautiful Louisiana!

Here is a picture of an awesome Britfield hot air balloon made by an amazing group of creative students at a school in Lake Charles! Love it!

Now, there are your little known factoids about Lake Charles & Louisiana:

  1. Lake Charles started as a sawmill town. Several homes within the Charpentier Historic District and the entire downtown was built with this lumber. A fire destroyed nearly everything in the early 1900s. About 30 blocks of the downtown area including the courthouse, city hall and the Catholic Church were all destroyed. It’s known as The Great Fire of 1910.
  2. The city of Lake Charles gets its name from a tragically romantic story involving some of the first settlers, Charles Sallier and his wife Catherine LeBleu, as well as the notorious pirate Jean Lafitte!
  3. Louisiana is the only state that does not have counties. Its political subdivisions are called parishes.

Until next time…..  C.R.

Dallas, TX Book Tour Entry #4
Posted January 29, 2020

Thank you OCS Eagles for inviting me and making me feel so welcome!

“I loved watching how the kids responded to you! They are so excited about having the books in their hands. Your presentation is off the charts excellent and we were all wanting more! Wish time allotted for us to have you for at least another hour.”– Ovilla Christian School, Red Oak, TX

And now for some little known factoids about Dallas, TX:

  1. Before Red Oak, a suburb of Dallas, was given its name in 1849, it was known as Possum Trot due to the possum population that lived there.
  2. At 17,207 acres (27 square miles), the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport is larger than all of Manhattan (22.82 square miles).
  3. Before becoming a gambler and gunslinger, Wyatt Earp’s sidekick John Henry Holliday was a dentist in Dallas. That’s why they call him Doc, get it?

WOW! Is all that I can say for the warm and CREATIVE welcome that I received from the staff and students at Central MS in OK City, OK! And, yes, that is a “Britfield” cake in the pictures! I had a blast sharing about how important CREATIVITY is and am thrilled to see it being encouraged at this excellent school! WAY TO GO CMS!!

And now for a few little known Oklahoma City FACTOIDS:

  1. Oklahoma City averages more than 300 days of sunshine per year.
  2. At around 200, Oklahoma has more man-made lakes than any other state… BUT, whaling is illegal in the state of Oklahoma, so please do not try to catch a whale in any of those manmade lakes!
  3. The first shopping cart was invented and used in Oklahoma City at Standard Food Markets in 1937.
