Season 3 Episode 25: Roberta Eaton Cheadle Reading “A Ghost And His Gold”

I am over at Tea, Toast and Trivia hosted by Rebecca Budd with a podcast about my writing process and research for A Ghost and His Gold and a reading from this book. Thank you, Rebecca.

Welcome to Tea, Toast and Trivia.

Thank you for listening in.

Roberta Eaton Cheadle

Bookstores, libraries, and coffee shops are great places for book readings. There is something extraordinary about hearing the voice of an author reading their stories. Their voice and intonation are nuanced by the many hours of effort putting pen to paper.  They created the characters, structured the plot, and lived every twist and turn that creates bumps in the storyline. 

A Ghost and His Gold

Living in the reality of Covid-19, book readings at public libraries and bookstores have been curtailed.  We are learning to embrace technology in new ways.  Welcome the podcast series, “Authors Reading their Books”, which will recreate the reading spaces in a virtual venue.  I invite you to put the kettle on and join the conversation on Tea Toast & Trivia. I am your host Rebecca Budd, and I am looking forward to sharing this moment with you.

I am thrilled to introduce Roberta Eaton Cheadle who has graciously agreed to be our guest author reading from her novel, “A Ghost and his Gold.”  Roberta is a South African writer specializing in historical, paranormal and horror novels and short stories. Keep your lights on because we are about to meet up with a sinister poltergeist.

  1. Robbie, great reading of your compelling work! Quite a scene you take us through! I also enjoyed hearing your thoughts on how you do your research (hooray for diaries!), the importance of getting different perspectives in historical fiction, and how a war can really alter the path of a country’s future. Thank you!

    The wonderful Rebecca Budd definitely provides a fantastic service in having authors read from their works on her podcast during this pandemic time.

    1. Well said, Dave on the importance of getting different perspectives in historical fiction, and how a war can really alter the path of a country’s future. Robbie brought that out beautifully in The Ghost and His Gold.

    2. Hi Dave, I am delighted you enjoyed the reading and the overview of my writing process. I have been reading a number of war based novels lately and the impact on the civilian population is always devastating. Not only are all the young and able men frequently killed, but the infrastructure and houses are damaged and often destroyed. Diaries are definitely a cornerstone of historical research and I have come across a few kept by USA soldiers who fought in WW1.

    1. Hi Rebecca, thank you for having me as a guest. I enjoy your questions, they make me think about my motives and thoughts during the writing process. I often go back to my books and it feels as if someone else must have written them. The different world you go into when you write almost seems to make you a different person to your everyday persona.

    1. Hi Liz, thank you for listening and I’m glad you enjoyed the podcast. I met Rebecca through you and I am very grateful. She is such an energetic and innovative person and a bit of her fairy dust rubs off on me when I chat to her.
