[LAUGHTER] WE'RE DOIN' FINE. WE'LL JUST ... DON'T CUT IT OFF. WE'LL JUST EDIT IT. AUTHOR BILL SHEROD INTERVIEW "SEARCH FOR THE HIDDEN VALLEY" [EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW 8-13-2013 BY ANNA] BILL: WHAT'S UP, ANNA? ANNA: JUST HERE TO TALK ABOUT YOUR BOOK, GRANDPA. B: I'M GLAD YOU ENJOYED IT. A: YEAH! B: THAT'S THE REASON I WROTE IT, FOR OTHER PEOPLE'S ENJOYMENT. [DID YOUR MANY YEARS OF LAW ENFORCEMENT AFFECT HOW YOU PORTRAYED VILLAINS IN THE BOOK?] A: SOME OF THE VILLAINS IN THE BOOK ARE REALLY COMPELLING. HOW DID YOU COME UP WITH THESE CHARACTERS? YOU KNOW EVERYBODY KNOWS A VILLAIN OR TWO IN THEIR LIFETIME. AND SINCE I WAS WITH THE SHERIFF'S DEPARTMENT FOR 20 YEARS, I KNEW A WHOLE BUNCH OF 'EM. [LAUGHTER] AND I'M NOT SAYING THAT ANYONE I KNEW IS IN THIS BOOK, BUT IT'S A COMPOSITE OF A LOT OF DIFFERENT PEOPLE I KNEW, PROBABLY. EVERYONE THINKS THAT CRIMINALS ARE STUPID AND A LARGE MAJORITY OF THEM ARE, BUT THERE ARE SOME REALLY INTELLIGENT CRIMINALS OUT THERE, TOO. AND I THOUGHT ABOUT THE SMART ONES WHILE I WAS WRITING THIS BOOK. [EVERYONE KNOWS A VILLAIN ... AND EVERYONE KNOWS A FAT CHARLIE, FROM THE ALREADY- CLASSIC SCENE IN CHAPTER 23.] EH, I DON'T KNOW ... THAT THAT WHOLE SCENE, THAT CHAPTER OF THE BOOK, JUST FLOWED OUTTA MY HEAD WITHOUT ME EVEN TRYING TO GET IT DOWN ON PAPER. EVERYBODY KNOWS A FAT CHARLIE IN THEIR LIFETIME, SOMETIME. A FAT CHARLIE IS THE CHARACTER THAT GETS THE HOT RIVET STUCK IN HIS PANTS. THEN WHEN HE STARTS HIS GYRATIONS, OUT THERE TRYING TO GET AWAY FROM THIS HOT RIVET THAT'S DOWN IN HIS UNDERWEAR ... READ CHAPTER 23 TO FIND OUT WHAT HAPPENS TO FAT CHARLIE. HOW MUCH OF YOUR REAL-LIFE LOVE STORY MADE IT IN THE BOOK? A: LIZZY, THE MAIN CHARACTER, FEMALE CHARACTER IN THE BOOK, HAS GRANDMA'S EYES? B: YEAH, SHE DOES. [LAUGHTER] AND I QUOTE HERE ON PAGE 35: "SOME MAN'S GOING TO HAVE HIS HANDS FULL TRYING TO TAME THIS LITTLE FILLY. LITTLE DID HE KNOW HOW PROPHETIC THAT THOUGHT WAS." A: HOW MUCH OF YOURSELF DID YOU PUT IN THIS BOOK? THE MAIN CHARACTER'S NAME IS BILL. I MEAN ... ? B: YOU KNOW, I'M GOING TO BE TRUTHFUL ABOUT THIS. I WASN'T REALLY TRYING TO GET BILL, THIS BILL, IN THAT BOOK. IF IT HAPPENED, IT JUST HAPPENED. BUT I WASN'T CONSCIOUSLY MAKING AN EFFORT TO DO THAT. A: OH, ACTUALLY I WANTED TO ASK YOU ONE LAST QUESTION. SO IF FOLKS WANT TO BUY THIS BOOK, IF THEY WANT TO FIND IT, HOW CAN THEY DO THAT? B: IF YOU GO ONLINE, ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS PUT MY NAME BILL SHEROD OR SEARCH FOR THE HIDDEN VALLEY. EITHER ONE WILL BRING YOU TO THE PLACE WHERE YOU CAN GET THE BOOK. A: GREAT! SHOULDN'T BE TOO HARD. B: MISPROUNCED AS SHE-ROD. A: FIND MY GRANDPA'S BOOK! THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR TALKING WITH ME. B: THANK YOU! THANK YOU FOR COMING TODAY. A: NO PROBLEM. THANK YOU FOR YOUR SPAGHETTI. B: OH, YOU'RE WELCOME! [LAUGHTER AS GRANDMA MARILYN SAYS: IT'S BEEN VERY INTERESTING!]
