D.G  Kaye I

’m so excited to be here today, and looking forward to having Shey over to my blog. I had also asked Shey to bring one or two of you dudes over too. I’m sorry my home isn’t big enough to have you all over at one time, especially since you guys are always so nice to me. So no, I’m not optimistic about making a choice, I hate making decisions having to choose one. Please know, when I choose one, I love all you guys.

Aw c’mon guys, you aren’t neglected, so many love you. You just have ta learn that ya can’t always have the spotlight.

I began writing about my past when I was much younger. I kept a running journal to document incidents in my life to help me analyze things that happened, which became part of the searching for the whys. I decided to write books later in life when I realized there were many others who’ve encountered their own similar family dysfunctions, and hoped I could offer some insight by sharing my own experiences and lessons.

DG Kaye.

Lol, you guys crack me up! But you’re right. My first book, Conflicted Hearts and its sequel, P.S. I Forgive You are about my life growing up with an absentee, narcissistic mother. But I learned to overcome my painful past and chose to live my life as an optimist, always looking for the humour. I think part of my overcoming unhappiness had a lot to do with using retail therapy, lol. And once that addiction began, no matter how happy I became, I was still hooked on shopping . . .and shoes – I love shoes!

zdickens-cell

Couple that with my love for travel, and what did I get? A whole lotta suitcases and overweight luggage, causing a lotta travel predicaments.

I thought I’d share some of those funny stories for a change of pace. Now, ta answer to the last part of the question, I’ve never had any hamster dudes of my own, so I never thought of a book called, Have Hamsters, Will Travel. But with that being said, I think it’s a great book idea for Shey to write, or, even better, maybe that’s a book you dudes can write since you’ve been having so many writing issues, that could be your big break?

D G Kaye

I do love to travel, erm, I used to love the whole part of traveling, now with all my baggage woes and airline restrictions, I just prefer the part about when I actually get to my destination, hoping luggage is intact with me.

My favourite place in the whole world is Arizona. I just feel ‘home’ there, more so than I do in my own home. I love the beautiful mountains, the desert air, the cacti, and the history and many things there to see and do. It’s my piece of heaven.

Now, that’s a toughie. I have so many wonderful memories. But ever since my first time in Arizona, all those special moments being there are etched in my favourite memories and calling me to come back to make some more.

D G Kaye

Besides my passion for Arizona, and my second passion for cruising the Caribbean, my favourite country is Italy. I just love everything about that country, from the people, to the lifestyle, to the history. I’ve been there a few times and visited several cities and towns, but I never got to Capri or Sardenia, two islands that I’ve always had a desire to visit when I can manage to get back to Italy.

D G KAYE

I began writing little poems and note cards with pictures for loved ones when I was a child. As I grew into my teens, writing became my saviour – a place to put my thoughts and voice my opinions because I wasn’t permitted to express myself vocally.

I knew, in my twenties, I wanted to be a writer, but had no conception about how to go about it. Throughout the ensuing years (and some decades), I began writing seriously in my journals, and wrote a few articles for a Canadian health magazine. By the time I turned forty, I felt compelled to write my memoir, Conflicted Hearts, but felt held back to do so because my mother was still living and I couldn’t bear her reading my work. I finally got the nerve to start working on that book two years before her death and even more nerve to publish it before she died. After publishing that book, I couldn’t stop writing. And now here I am guesting with the dudes!

D G KAYE

No. Conflicted Hearts is done. It’s all wrapped up now in closure with P.S. I Forgive You. That very long chapter of my life is done. I’ve found my peace doing so.

I find my writing now going in the direction of where my life continues. My next book (which has been sadly neglected since autumn), is in rough shape, but is going to be about aging and wisdom, about how life, aging and illness can change relationships in marriage, and how I deal with the changes.

 Thank you so much Shey, for having me over here today. And thank you little dudes! It has been a great pleasure to guest here, and to be able to share some of myself with you all. ❤

 

Short bio:

I’m a nonfiction memoir writer who writes about life, matters of the heart and women’s issues. I write to inspire others by sharing my stories about events I encountered, and the lessons that come along with them.

 

I love to laugh, and self-medicate with a daily dose of humor. When I’m not writing intimate memoirs, you’ll find me writing with humor in some of my other works and blog posts.

Kev…

Er, Caboodle is not exactly a hamster Caboodle, though I’m quite sure that hamsters the world over will like it all the same as it also includes short stories of interviews with all kinds of characters as well as other stories, and poetry about all kinds of things. (Why oh why didn’t I do an interview one with a hamster?!!!) But…..dudes! Let me start by saying, it’s a real honour to be interviewed by such famous outstanding hamster dudes who have graciously provided me with an opportunity to talk about my latest book release, Caboodle & The Whole Kit.

zmed-bbbbbbwil

zlove9994 zdick zmed-dortytytytanto

Kev.  Well… Er, Caboodle is not really about people and things as much; it’s more about experiences in life. I’m quite sure you dudes will be able to relate to some it it… sort of… (Big open smile)

zmedginge

zmed-bbbbbbbubb

Kev. Er, no. (Kev fidgets with his fingers and toes and moves about uncomfortably while waiting for the next question.)

zmed

The wonderful collection of short stories, poetry, and songs has been grouped together to bring a variety of tales that are mostly based upon true events, people can easily relate to.

zmed-bb

Kev. (Oh dear!) Mm… Good question! Yes. You do make an excellent point. I think somebody should, er, definitely write something about you. After all, you are the most excellent hamster dudes I’ve ever met.

zcat10zsilvmaon-6767676767676

Kev. I had several completed works lying around and several others that I was still working on which didn’t seem to relate to one particular genre or topic, so I thought, Why not throw them all into one work, grouped into their respective genres/topics and that way, I will have everything I’ve written to date (apart from my memoir and fantasy sequel which I’m still working on) published and out there for folks to enjoy… That’s pretty much how Caboodle & The Whole Kit came about.

zsilveeioioio

Kev. That was my most difficult challenge. I couldn’t for ages think of a suitable title, then one day while I was musing over it and having a really good talk with myself (as you do) I said to myself, it’s sort of like the whole kit and caboodle… then it hit me (a stroke of genius, I must admit) I’ll call it Caboodle & The Whole Kit! I love my mouse!

zmed-bbub2

zhamfff

Kev. Er, I mean muse. I like hamsters too…

zsilvghghghghghgggghg

Kev. I’m more of a songwriter than an artist. I’ve had four single releases so far, three of which will become part of my album: The Right One when it’s finished. Christmas Time was my first release, last year. I will be promoting it again this year and it will probably become part of a second album I’m working on which I haven’t decided upon a name for yet.

zdickensssss-s

zdickensnsnnnsnsfdnfbdsnfbdnfbdnfbdnfbdnf

Kev. My music is varied, but The Right One will bring together all my love songs and ballads with a couple of folk & country songs in the mix.

My second album will focus more on my less serious topics including The Boogie Song and a few other bouncy, dancy, wobbelly jobbelly type of songs… Pretty much all humour.

Kev. I perform live in my spare room and around the house occasionally if that counts. Aragorn likes to hear me sing and watch me play the guitar. Sometimes, we dance together. Rico looks at us like we’re stark raving bonkers then tends to disappear which is probably what my audience would do if I performed on stage… Don’t know why though, I do all my own moves. We should do a gig together sometime, we could call it Kev and the Hamster Dudes. Play that banjo!

But that’s how I got to know the hamster dude called, Clarence.

zwqwqw9100

I was having a stroll in the woods one day, minding my own as you do when this big, wet blobby grassy, er mossy things jumps out of nowhere and blocks my path.

“Yuuu’man!” It growled

“Who me?”

“Yuuu’man!” It repeated

I looked around. Nobody. “Oh, you must mean me.”

“You, yuuu’man!”

“Oh, you mean, I’m human! It’s actually pronounced with an H, you know. Like this, Hu… man. Go on, give it a try.”

“I eat yuuu’man for halloween treat!”

“Ah, right, well… That changes things a bit doesn’t it?”

Just as the moss monster was about to pounce upon me, some strange music started playing… it sounded like a clarinet. The moss monster turned and ran towards the music. Living with cats for all these years, curiosity got the better of me, so I followed it to see who was playing the clarinet.

ztinchal

 

ztink-t99

Turns out it was a hamster dude called, Clarence who upon seeing me in danger had gotten out his clarinet to distract the moss monster. Then he ran to the edge of a cliff and hid behind a rock while playing his clarinet. The moss monster, confused by the echo the music coming from the cliff’s edge ran over it and fell into the ravine.

If it hadn’t been for the hamster dude, Clarence and his clarinet that he played like the pied piper, I would have become the moss monster’s Halloween treat.

Well, I’m currently working on my final memoir: Miedo 3: Fragments of Fear. I’m doing it as an unedited serialisation on my blog at the moment. Since, my son had a hamster, there will most definitely be a mention of that later on in the book. I still have fantasy sequel to write as well, but I’m also thinking about writing Animal Tales 2 which will definitely have a couple of hamster tales in it along short stories of other famous animals.

Thanks again for having me over on your site hamster dudes. I’ve really enjoyed it.

Caboodle is filled with relaxing episodes of life, family, love & romance, faith, and even the odd, inadvertent run-ins with some quite unsavory characters.
The wonderful collection of short stories, poetry, and songs has been grouped together to bring a variety of tales that are mostly based upon true events, people can easily relate to.
The whole kit is designed to ignite a mixture of emotions to bring smile, laughter, and moisture to the eyes. There is something for everyone in Caboodle.
