Holly Jahangiri and I have been friends for about ten years, maybe longer. She and I released a collection of our short stories, Hidden Lies and Other Stories, and everyone who reads the book can't look at a freezer the same again.
Holly interviewed me a while back, and I would like to share the interview with everyone who knows me: Interview with Author and Publisher Vivian Zabel. Of course anyone who would post the link would help her in the blog competition finals.
Hidden Lies and Other Stories can be found on the collections page 4RV Bookstore .

Review for Case of the Missing Coach
Author: V. Gilbert Zabel
Genre: Young Adult
Publisher: 4RV Publishing LLC, 2007
Review by: SG Cardin
The Jonesville Chargers are a youth baseball team from
When the Chargers reach the national tournament, the threats come true when their head coach is kidnapped. The team bonds together to try to find the missing coach and continue their winning ways, if possible.
The plot moves fast, and all the characters are likable. The author includes a list of
coaches and players in the beginning which I thought was very helpful, as when I became confused at times, I was able to flip to the list to sort out who the characters
were. The author uses black and white pictures of boys playing baseball to frame the
chapters which was appealing. Her enthusiasm for the sport and for young adult writing
