Stage and Studio on 06/14/11
On Stage & Studio Tuesday, June 14th at 11 am on KBOO 90.7 FM, Dmae Roberts talks with author Dale Basye about his children's book series, Heck. The fourth book in the series, Fibble, was released last month. Basye will also sing songs that he wrote for the series, and read passages from the books.
Heck follows Milton and Marlo Fauster, a brother and sister who get sent to Heck after a fatal marshmallow bear explosion. The books follow them as they make their way through the otherwordly reform school that is Heck. In Fibble: The Fourth Circle of Hell, Milton and Marlo find that they've switched places.
Dale Basye got the idea for writing the Heck series when a friend of his was working on a mockumentary about the devil, and Basye decided he wanted to write about hell for children. As a kid, Basye hated school. But he found a deep love for writing, and was encouraged by teachers who helped him foster his imagination.
