By: Jamie Gaddy
Hi there! And welcome back to Episode 4 of the Homeschooling and Loving It Podcast
Today we are interviewing the author of a new fast-paced young adult fiction book that just released… entitled Britfield & The Lost Crown.
Already receiving amazing reviews this book is a must-read for your summer list…
the author states that “Britfieldis more than a book; it’s a Movement in creativity, leadership and education.” I don’t know about you – but I’m curious to find out more – -so everyone let’s welcome the author Chad Stewart!
The questions we asked today were…
Tell us more about Britfield & the Lost Crown… what is the central theme of this book?
Awesome – I love those themes – they are definitely parent approved…
You mention that “Britfield is more than a book; it’s a movement in creativity, leadership, and education. “ Can you explain what you mean by this? And tell us how this book could be a movement!
Your target age range for this book is middle grade/young adult – why choose this age range?
I’ve seen so many new works published for this age range that are fantasy – why did you choose to write realistic fiction?
Tell us why it was so important to you to include detailed accurate descriptions of, geography, history, art, and architecture. This surely isn’t typical of your Middle grade/ young adult book.
You lived in England for a time isn’t that right? Tell us about that and how that inspired the Britfield series?
The book deals with a fictional family dynasty that has a possible claim to the British
throne, specifically the Britfield dynasty. Is this family dynasty based on any historical
family? What inspired the idea of a modern-day threat to the British throne?
As a parent, I love that the book teaches life principles. So, what can you tell us about the next book – any sneak peeks you can give us? And when do you think it will be available?
I’ve heard that Britfield & the Lost Crown may be developed into a movie in the next few years, is this true?
