Interview with Debbie Glade, Author of The Travel Adventures of Lilly P Badilly

Debbie Glade has a Bachelor’s Degree in Creative Writing from Florida State University. She has worked as a freelance writer, specifically as a travel writer for upscale cruise lines. She refers to herself as an “armchair traveler,” which means reading, researching and writing without always traveling. Today, she is going to travel with us to Costa Rica through her characters’ experiences.

Tyler: Welcome, Debbie. Matthew and I are very curious to learn more about your book. Matthew has a question for you to start us off.

Matthew: How did you get the idea for this story?

Debbie: The story developed as I created the characters. I knew I wanted Lilly to be smart and play the piano. I also wanted her to use her brainpower to solve a big problem. To add to that it was important to teach the readers about geography and culture. Before I wrote one word of the story I made a list of goals for my story. It had to be unique, adventurous, funny, scary and educational. Plus it had to make use out of my voice talents. I hope I achieved all that!

Tyler: Debbie, will you tell us a little bit about the main character, Lilly P Badilly?

Debbie: Lilly is a heroine not just because she saves her family and new friends, but also because she learns to control her fears and emotions by using her intelligence. Like other children (and adults), Lilly has several fears that make new experiences scary for her. But, by talking through these phobias and concentrating on solutions, she bravely makes it through a very frightening situation.

Lilly is always kind and thoughtful. She uses her brain power and book knowledge to solve problems peacefully and rationally. She is curious about everything in the world, and knows that she can learn a great deal through books.

Lilly is also very musically talented. Music both motivates her and calms her down.

Matthew: Why did you choose to have Lilly be a millipede instead of anything else?

Debbie: I love insects! Living in South Florida most of my life, I have been exposed to many crawling critters. When I lived in Denver, Colorado after college, I received comments often about how awful it must be to live in Miami, a place with so many cockroaches, other insects and lizards. I would laugh at the thought that people were afraid of South Florida because of our bugs and reptiles. I am an avid gardener and have seen some of the most unusual insects, spiders and snakes in my yard. I tend to look down when I am walking, so I see a lot of bugs on the ground.

I particularly chose a millipede because I find them to be fascinating creatures. They can fit through very small places, and they thrive in the humid climate of South Florida as well as Costa Rica. (I am sure there are many hiding in and around the Miami International Airport.) I love the fact that they have so many legs! And they live by eating decayed plant matter. What better character for a children’s book than one who eats rotting plants only? Also in the real world, millipedes never harm humans or destroy homes like termites.

Tyler: What made you decide that Lilly would be a voracious reader and play the piano?

Debbie: My 15-year-old daughter, Rachel, inspired me to develop Lilly’s character. Rachel always loved books, and was read to by many family members from the day she was born. She taught herself to read at a very young age and would beg us to buy her books and go to the library. She is in high school now and is a very voracious reader and a disciplined student. Rachel is an incredible problem solver! I am more of the somewhat excitable type. Her rational, practical way of thinking is very calming to me. She is the first person I go to for advice, and I can honestly say she has always steered me in the right direction. My daughter is also an accomplished pianist, who practices many hours each day. Her advanced sight-reading abilities allow her to experiment with all genres of music. My husband plays guitar and sings, and our house is always filled with music. The only downside is that I often trip on piles of sheet music.

Tyler: And what about Lilly’s wonderful lyrical name? Is there a story behind its creation?

Debbie: Yes. My brother, Eric, always called my daughter “Silly Badilly” when she was young. He would tickle her and tease her relentlessly and repeatedly say, “You are such a Silly Badilly!” She would beg him to stop, but he wouldn’t listen. Needless to say this was somewhat annoying, but it stuck with me. (Now my brother has 2 kids of his own, and I was planning to get back at him by teasing them, but his kids are too cute. I do talk to them a lot in my cartoon voice though, and they love it!) I liked the rhyming of Lilly Badilly and really get a kick out of it when Grandpa Willie calls his granddaughter “Silly Badilly.” Of course, my brother wants full credit for the name.

Matthew: Why did the millipedes have to go to Costa Rica instead of somewhere else?

Debbie: They did not have to go anywhere in particular. But it was important that they travel someplace interesting and unique with a lot of nature. With all my travel writing experience, Costa Rica was the perfect place. Besides, there are a lot of flights from Miami to Costa Rica as well as other Central American cities.

Costa Rica is home to some of the earth’s greatest natural treasures. About one quarter of this small nation is protected wildlife. The diversity of plants, animals and volcanoes of Costa Rica are like that of no other place on earth. There are more than 1,500 different species of orchids alone. And brilliant blue morphos are among the countless species of butterflies in the cloud forests and rainforests. One of the most intriguing animals I’ve ever read about is the leaf cutter ant. There are scientists who devote their careers to studying them.

I really thought that since Lilly is such an avid reader and environmentalist, Costa Rica would be a fine place to travel. I hope that the book sends a message to children everyone that we must preserve our precious environment.

Matthew: Have you ever been to Costa Rica?

Debbie: Not yet, but I am hoping to go very soon!

Tyler: Debbie, how on earth does a millipede travel to Costa Rica?

Debbie: Well, Lilly and her grandparents live in a hole in the wall in Concourse A of the Miami International Airport. They never really seem to go anywhere. It is Grandma Nellie’s idea one day that the family members sneak into a briefcase to board a flight to Costa Rica. Of course, most millipedes pack lightly, but the Badillys travel with backpacks.

Matthew: Where were Lilly’s parents and why didn’t they go on the trip too?

Debbie: That is a great mystery that will be revealed some time in the future.

Tyler: Will you tell us a little bit about Lilly’s travel companions?

Debbie: Lilly lives with and travels with her grandparents, Nellie O. Badilly and Willie Z. Badilly. Nellie is very bossy and adventurous. She wears a gray wig! Grandpa Willie is very cautious and gentle, so his wife generally gets to make the decisions! These two characters were inspired by my real life grandparents, who were wonderful and fascinating in every way. Grandpa Willie has some of my husband’s traits as well.

Lilly’s grandparents are protective of her. But they also look to her for expertise about a lot of things, because they know how smart their granddaughter is and how much she reads.

Tyler: I can’t imagine it’s easy being a millipede. What kinds of dangers do Lilly and her family encounter in Costa Rica?

Debbie: Being small has its challenges. (And I know this first hand, because I am just under 5 feet tall myself.) The members of the Badilly family have to make sure they are not squished by anyone or anything while traveling. They have to hide in a briefcase or suitcase on the plane, so no one sees them. People tend to scream when they see bugs and cause a big commotion. And it is scary in that darkness! Luckily Grandpa Willie has a flashlight.

Another challenge for them is transportation when they get to Costa Rica. But with proper planning and investigating they figure it all out. It can be convenient to fit in small spaces and squeeze through cracks.

Once they enter the rainforest, the Badillys are faced with unfamiliar territory. Not only do they have to protect themselves from terrible weather without the comforts of home, but they also have to protect themselves and others they meet along the way. All I will say is they encounter a creepy enemy named Ruth Less. It seems as though there is no solution to the sticky situation, but Lilly knows better.

Tyler: Why did you decide to create a companion CD for the book?

Debbie: I have a special cartoon voice I have always used, and it really makes people laugh. I created a few other voice characterizations as well. I wanted to give Lilly a memorable voice and make the story come to life. Also, even though “The Travel Adventures of Lilly P Badilly” is a picture book, it is quite advanced for young readers. With the CD, children who are very young or not quite ready to read at this level can enjoy the story. Even those who read well like the multidimensional aspect of the voices, music and sound effects. All the sound effects of the rain forest are authentic Costa Rican recordings from an amazing website at http://www.naturesongs.com. We are finding that parents are just as into the CD as the kids are, because it is very entertaining.

Matthew: How did you make all of those voices on the CDs all by yourself?

Debbie: I have had my Lilly voice since I was 9 years old. And I am always goofing around with voices. I tried to think about what each of the characters in the book would sound like. Then I experimented with a lot of different ideas before coming up with the voices on the CD. I sure had to practice a lot not to get confused with the different voices while recording it all! It’s not as easy as it sounds.

Tyler: Will you tell us about the CD? Who wrote the music and the song lyrics and how it was recorded?

Debbie: As I mentioned, I use different voices for each character. I also narrate the story. The CD is very lively and really brings emotion and depth to the plot. I wrote the lyrics to all the songs. Rachel wrote the entire musical score and then worked with me on the songs to fit in with the themes of each scene. It was a time consuming process, because we wanted everything to be original, funny or scary and lively. Rachel is always swamped with homework from school, so it was challenging to fit time in for writing sessions. Somehow we did it. And I have to say we laughed a lot during the process.

Open Your Mind and Opportunity With a Travel Adventure

Do you find yourself at work feeling as though you are trapped in your job or in your lifestyle. Maybe you have a burning desire to get out of the rat race and go and explore what the world or your country has to offer. Do you sit at work looking out the window thinking about your next Travel Adventure. Well chances are you are suffering from severe case of Travelitis.

Travelling is an Education.

Travelling can not only be a great adventure where you experience new places & people, but an education on life itself, especially if you travel at a young age. As a young person you have all these pre-conceived ideas about what certain places in the World look like. Things like what the cities and landscape looks like and what the people are like. It is not till you make the effort to go to check out these landscapes, that they are a lot different to what you think and usually far exceed your imagination.

Generally speaking, the people are always welcoming to their part of the world, and they cannot do enough for you. They are happy to help you find your way and point out places you may not have heard about. It is also interesting to see the lifestyles that the different people lead when comparing the people who live in city to the people by the beach, in country or even in the outback. It can give you a whole new appreciation to what you have, or would like to have, in your own life.

Travelling has taught me many things, including having an open mind about the world. Because if your mind is closed you will miss out on all the good things in life.

Travelling opens Opportunity.

If you are someone who feels that things are a bit flat in your life, or is kind of stagnant or stationary. Then a Travel Adventure maybe just what you need, to recharge your batteries, to boost your enthusiasm, to sharpen your focus on what you want in life and what direction you will take to get there, or even lead you to the opportunity you would not otherwise had. Travelling taught me that there are opportunities everywhere, if it is a new opportunity or change of lifestyle you are looking for, you just have to be prepare to have a look and ask, they rarely come to you and knock on your door. It is a great way to meet people and build friendships with people in different parts of your country or even the world. You never know, you just maybe lucky enough to be in the right place at the right time for the opportunity of your lifetime.

So if you have a dream to explore your country or the world, want to grow as a person though travelling, or would like a change of lifestyle, there is no reason you should not start planning your next Travel Adventure now.

Unique Gifts For 2010 a Travel Adventure to London

Are you searching for unique gifts in 2010? I have the most unique gift idea for you: Give the gift of Travel. Why the gift of travel?

There are so many places you can visit both close to home and across the globe. You will have to think about your family and what will be appropriate for you. You can choose from a family adventure camping and shooting rapids in Colorado to New York City Theaters and beyond.

A week in London will be unforgettable and remembered in your family for years to come.

See Historical Places

There are so many wonderful historical placed to visit in London. Again you can easily find something that will work for your family. My personal favorites include the Tower of London (grim past and shiny jewels), The Globe Theater (smaller than you might think), and the Royal Estates of Hampton Court Palace (fantastic kitchens) and Windsor Castle (beautiful gardens).

Visit First Class Museums

There a so many museums in London it will be hard for you to choose which ones to start with. They range from the British Museum (objects from around the globe) to the London Transport Museum (fascinating history of the London Underground), to the Imperial War Museum ( The London experience during WW1 and WW2).

Gain Cultural Understanding

London is a fantastic place to get a new understanding of how people around the world live, while still speaking English. You will enjoy shopping in the grocery stores in London to see what folks there purchase (try some custard tarts). You can ride the London Underground to get all over this city and see different neighborhoods. Or try my favorite way- enjoy a traditional English Tea in the afternoons (I recommend the restaurant on the top of the Portrait Gallery). This event will make you purchase a box of strong English tea at Harrods before you head home.

Must See London Attractions

Beyond all the sights and museums we have mentioned above, don’t forget about the London Eye (a huge Ferris wheel- type structure that gives a great view of the city. Check it out on a clear day.), and Kew Gardens (Victorian Era gardens in Richmond- just outside of London).

So when you are scratching your head this year to find truly Unique Gifts for 2010, Why not see if a travel adventure (to London) is right for you? Your family will thank you for years to come.
