Peacefood with Virgil the Elephant by Marian Hailey-Moss

5 autographed copies will be given away on Friday, July 3, 2015

Virgil the Elephant crowned himself the invisible king of elephantine eating. That means a vegan diet. Everyday and everywhere, Virgil wore his V-shirt and kept a lookout for those who would share his way of life. He visited Anna and her family and friends, Eric and Peter and soon a wonderful thing happened.

Exclusive interview with the author:

1) What’s the first thing you do when starting a new book?

I email Marc Chalvin in Paris and ask if he’s free to illustrate another “terrific story”

2) PEACEFOOD with Virgil the Elephant is a great title. Was it the original or did it change along the way?

I was into elephants and so the title just came with the story.

3) What’s your strangest writing quirk or habit?

I send the drafts to as many friends that I think will read it and give me their feedback.

4) Thinking back to the way beginning, what’s the most important thing you’ve learned as a writer from then to now?

That writing a book is a team effort. The author is just one member of the team. For PEACEFOOD my friend Gretchen gave me feedback, Marc Chalvin enhanced and sometimes shaped the story with his drawings, Elizabeth Wildman sweetened the story and helped it flow with her editing, Jack Pettey saw to the spelling and punctuation with his editing, and Eric and Peter were the muse without which there would have been no story.

5) What genre have you not yet written but really want to try?

I’d love to do a one-act play.
