Although it’s directed towards those individuals currently pursuing a career in front of the camera, YFT is a wonderful place to go for all things fitness – and fitness that is realistically doable. Talia is one talented fitness coach and an all around all star health guru, but she is also one of the most inspiring people you’ll ever meet.

Fiona recently made headlines when she did a signing in Granbury, Texas. A big thank you to the Hood County News for featuring her in an article, and to Cynthia James of Ártefactz on the Square for arranging a wonderful signing.  It was a fabulous night celebrating the recent expansion of the Ártefactz store, and Fiona couldn’t have been happier to be a part of it!

Fiona Von Finnigan was given a very sweet moment in the spotlight during a recent trip to Dallas, Texas. During the second day of her Pre-K through 1st grade Summer Camp, Dr. Jean Feldman was kind enough to share her positive review of Fiona and bring Lindsay Parker up on stage to speak more about the book. Dr. Jean followed the in-person review with an equally sweet Fiona post on her Dr. Jean and Friends blog. The post can be seen here:

Thank you so much Dr. Jean!

Thank you so much to Fountain Valley Montessori for inviting Lindsay Parker to discuss the writing/illustration process behind “Fiona Von Finnigan – Fairy Tale Fixer”. Lindsay spent the morning reading excerpts from the book, discussing the inspiration for her story, sharing her original illustration drawings, and showing students how everything was eventually put together into the final versions.

After sharing her own story process, Lindsay helped the students brainstorm ideas for their own books and get started on creating their own books.

It was a wonderful day, and Lindsay, Fiona, and Paws can’t wait to visit again after the second installment is released.

Saturday, June 28th, marked the official book release party for
“Fiona Von Finnigan – Fairy Tale Fixer”.

It was a great evening filled with much laughter, photo ops with Fiona and Paws, and a chance to give a little something back to charity. 10% of all sales that evening went to the local charity Reading to Kids. This Los Angeles charity is a grassroots organization dedicated to inspiring underserved children with a love of reading, thereby enriching their lives and opportunities for future success. For more information on their work as part of the Children’s Literacy Coalition of Los Angeles visit: www.readingtokids.org

All in all it was a fabulous night, and just the perfect kind of way to mark Fiona’s arrival on the literary scene!
