My Interview with Writer Dandi Daley Mackall, of the Hallmark Channel Original Movie... MY BOYFRIENDS' DOGS!


I am delighted to share with you all today...

My Exclusive Interview with Writer,
Dandi Daley Mackall,
who has written over 400 books...
including a novel titled:
My Boyfriends’ Dogs, that has become
a Hallmark Channel Original Movie!




Writer Dandi Daley Mackall is from the Midwest, residing with her family and beloved pets, in rural Ohio.

From a young age, growing up amidst a family of storytellers, Dandi knew she always wanted to be a writer. And now, those horizons have broadened even further, to movie making!

Please see all the exciting details (below) of Dandi’s new TV movie, in her interview, with me!

with the stars of the movie:
Adam, Shirley, and Eve

The Interview....



1. First of all, since the Hallmark Movie My Boyfriends’ Dogs is based on your book, by the same name, can you share with us some of your other popular book titles? Do you, perhaps, have a favorite?

Thanks for asking that (though it’s a bit like asking me to name my favorite child….). THE SILENCE OF MURDER, Knopf/Random House, won an Edgar Award. LOVE RULES is a novel I’d love to see as a movie. THE SECRETS OF TREE TAYLOR, Knopf/Random just released, and I hope it will be popular because it’s the most autobiographical thing I’ve written, which is a bit scary. But the one that’s sold over half a million copies is WINNIE THE HORSE GENTLER.

2. What was your reaction when you first learned the Hallmark Channel wanted to turn your book My Boyfriend’s Dogs into a movie?

Honestly, I hung up the phone and screamed, “I’m going to be a movie!” Then I spent the next hour trying to convince family and friends that I wasn’t kidding. I was naΓ―ve enough to believe that when a book is optioned, it will certainly be a movie. Not true. Since then, I’ve discovered how rare, even miraculous, it is for that option to lead all the way through to the screen. I’ve also been grateful to join the ranks of Hallmark. I knew the story would remain family-friendly. And as it turned out, Hallmark made sure the movie stayed very close to the book.


3. Do you, personally, have any dogs? Or, other animals?

I grew up riding bareback, with a couple of dogs tagging along behind me. A writer’s adage is: Write what you know about. I know horses and dogs, and besides the WINNIE books, I’ve written HORSEFEATHERS! series, BACKYARD HORSES series, and STARLIGHT ANIMAL RESCUE, plus easy reader children’s books, BOB THE HORSE. Now we’re down to one horse, a paint, Cheyenne. And we have two wanna-be Shih-Tzu pups, Moxie and Munch, plus a host of outside cats and wildlife visitors.

4. Where do you find inspiration for your stories/characters? Does your faith play a role?

What a lovely question, in an age that doesn’t always want to talk about faith—yes, my faith plays a major role in my writing. I came to a faith in Christ a bit later than many and after quite a struggle.
I don’t think I’ve ever been didactic or faith-in-your-face in any of my books, but I think if we’re writing from our heart and our characters are authentic, what we believe becomes a natural part of everything we do, including writing. Inspiration is everywhere—the morning call of a mourning dove, a broken chair in the middle of a corn field, the guy on the bus, the woman in the check-out line, the smell of an attic in summer, not to mention my quirky family and friends.

5. Did you visit the set of My Boyfriends’ Dogs during filming and meet the cast?
Actress Erika Christensen
on the set of My Boyfriends Dogs
with Dandi Daley Mackall

Yes! What a wonderful experience that was—surreal to see characters who started in my head, now walking around and saying my words! My sister from Oklahoma and I (from Ohio) flew to Vancouver to see the final days of filming. I was afraid we’d be fifth-and-sixth wheels, but the phenomenal cast and crew treated us like royalty. Marcy Gross and Ann Weston, producers, drove us from set to set. Erika Christensen and the rest of the cast couldn’t have been more gracious. And I loved those dogs! I’d always imagined movies being filmed from beginning to end. Instead, we got to see the climax, the wedding scene, then skip to one of Bailey Daley’s boyfriends, then skip to the yoga scene (where you can see me sitting on a park bench . . . if you don’t blink).

6. What do you hope viewers will take away from watching your Hallmark Channel movie My Boyfriends’ Dogs?

First of all, I’d love for an entire family to have a great time watching the movie together. It still feels unbelievable to think of families all over watching my little story in their living rooms. Blows my mind. Beyond that, there is a theme about unconditional love, about waiting for someone who will accept you the way you are and love you just like that. If only we could all be more like dogs—they’re always happy to see you; they forgive you; and they love you unconditionally.


My Boyfriends' Dogs, a Hallmark Channel Original Movie


Thank you so much, Dandi, for sharing your passion for Writing Stories and exciting Movie Experience with all of us!

I absolutely loved your response... to the question, “Where do you find inspiration?”. It is a joy to “meet” another believer in Christ and with the very mention of the “broken chair in the middle of a corn field”, you spoke directly to my “country girl” heart. Then, as any good writer does, you took me back to my childhood, playing in my Grandmother’s home, with the simple mention of “the smell of an attic in summer…” It’s amazing how words, smells, and even peaceful silence… can carry our hearts and imaginations to somewhere else. Thank you for blessing all of us with your lovely words!

Thank you to everyone... who just read my interview with writer Dandi Daley Mackall. I hope you enjoyed it and will take away something just as beautiful and meaningful, as I did!

Also, I truly hope you will all enjoy her new Hallmark Channel Original MovieMy Boyfriends’ Dogs. As Dandi wrote above... "If only we could all be more like dogs—they’re always happy to see you; they forgive you; and they love you unconditionally."


Gather your family & dogs, too, and enjoy a family movie night of watching My Boyfriends’ Dogs - premiering October 18th on the Hallmark Channel!

Until next time... God bless, Net

Hallmark Movies & Mysteries - New Look! New Name!


Today "Hallmark Movie Channel"
 
official changes it's name and becomes
 
"Hallmark Movies & Mysteries"!

 
image via: Hallmark Movies & Mysteries



via Hallmark: "Get ready for Hallmark Movies & Mysteries! On September 29th (2014) Hallmark Movie Channel becomes Hallmark Movies and Mysteries, with more original movie premieres and mysteries that will keep you guessing!"


Watch this Video Clip...
which highlights what is to come for
Hallmark Movies & Mysteries -
with stars Candace Cameron Bure, Lori Loughlin, Dylan Neal, and more...




I am hoping this change of name will make this station more widely available to all cable and satellite providers!

If you do not have Hallmark Movies & Mysteries, please join me in calling our cable/satellite providers and asking them for the newly named Hallmark Movies & Mysteries channel!

  • Call DirecTV at 1-800-531-5000. Please ask them to make Hallmark Movies & Mysteries available in SD, standard definition, like the DISH network does.

  • Call AT&T u-verse at 1-800.288.2020. Please ask them to give you the Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movies & Mysteries.

Perhaps, with this change of name, more cable providers will "get a clue" and give its customers the channels they are seeking!




My take...
In any given Mystery, when a character disguises or changes his or her name, he may have something to hide... however,  Hallmark is just the opposite... I believe this new development - the recent changing of name, will make the newly branded Hallmark Movies & Mysteries shine even brighter, from out of the shadows, and eventually gain it's way into more of our homes!

Congratulations to...
Everyone at Hallmark, for this newly branded name and direction for your channel. It looks like many exciting adventures lie ahead for Hallmark Movies & Mysteries!

MIDNIGHT MASQUERADE starring Autumn Reeser premieres this weekend on the Hallmark Channel!


It's a Cinderella story...
when a Young Woman meets her Prince Charming...

Hallmark Channel
 
 
Premieres Saturday September 27, 2014 at 9PM/8c.
See the Family TV Schedule for encore airings. 

 
Storyline: A beautiful, young businesswoman’s life takes a turn when she inherits a billion-dollar candy company. On Halloween night, she shares a dance with a handsome and mysterious “prince” at a masked costume ball and yearns....
 
 
 I hope you all enjoy this Fairy Tale Movie!

Let's hope...
"they live happily ever after…"

*Visit the Midnight Masquerade page for more details
on this movie!

 

Cedar Cove - Only 2 episodes remain...

Season 2 - Episode 11
 
 Airs Saturday September 27, 2014 at 8PM/7c.
Repeats immediately following Midnight Masquerade at 11PM/10c.
 
Storyline: Season 2, Episode 11- STAND AND DELIVER --
As Jack relapses and spends even more time in Seattle, an oblivious Olivia worries his writing is taking too much of a toll. While she thinks of a way to take the pressure of Jack's job off their relationship, the return to Cedar Cove of both Warren's corrupt business partner and Peggy's menacing harasser causes tension and danger to mount.
 
*Be sure to watch for...
Author Debbie Macomber, who will have a cameo role in this week's episode.
 
*Please Note: Cedar Cove does, at times, contain Adult Content and Situations. I have seen many comments of concern over this on Hallmark Channel's Facebook page. I share a lot of those concerns myself. I like the actors, the setting, and characters of Cedar Cove; however, as Hallmark fans, I know many of us turn to this station, in order to turn away from the usual dramas on network TV and cable that are filled with sex, drugs, and violence. We want wholesome adult entertainment that uplifts and inspires... which is what we are used to expecting from the Hallmark Channel... with When Calls the Heart, Signed Sealed Delivered, and all the many wonderful original movies!
 
Please share in the comments below your thoughts on Cedar Cove's Season 2.

In Paper Angels, abused wife Lynn (Josie Bissett), leaves her alcoholic husband Darryl (Russell Porter), with her two kids, Thomas (Rustin Gresiuk) and Sara (Farryn Van Humbeck) and move to another town where she works as a waitress to make ends meet. In that same town, we meet Kevin (Matthew Settle), whose Marketing & Design company is on the brink of shutting down due to the economy. Plus, Kevin’s wife Jenny (Kendra Anderson) is in a difficult pregnancy with twins. Thomas starts a new school and becomes the target of a bully who is threatened by how well he plays basketball. Unable to join the high school team, Thomas goes to the community center where he meets Kevin and the two of them become unlikely friends through pickup basketball games. Little do they know the tremendous impact they will have on each other’s families this Christmas through The Salvation Army’s Angel Tree Program. Inspired by the hit holiday song by country star Jimmy Wayne and book by Wayne with Travis Thrasher.

When their dad loses his job just before the holidays, the family ignores the severity of the situation and continues to live above their means. When the consequences catch up with them, they are left with nothing and nowhere to turn. Taken in by an eccentric Christmas tree farmer, the family learns that miracles can come true…if you believe!
