Laura Renauld & Daniel Warloch


Hello listeners, Welcome to iTunes #1 kids & Family podcast!

We have two great guests for you today! Please welcome back Daniel Warloch, an award-winning children’s author of The Holly KissKiss series. We are also ELATED to have children’s author Laura Renauld to talk about her brand NEW picture book Porcupine’s Pie!

Laura’s book is the perfect story for fall, friendship, and feasts and promotes kindness, sharing, and unquestioned generosity.

Take a listen to know all about both the wonderful books that should be added to your family library. We hope you enjoy his interview as much as we did recording it. Be Sure to Tune In!

Here’s some more information about Laura Renauld

Laura RenauldPrior to becoming a children’s writer, Laura shared her love of books with her third-grade students. After experiencing first-hand the power of story to captivate, amuse, and encourage, Laura knew that she wanted to create books for kids.

Laura is a member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators. When she is not writing picture books about porcupines, pirates, and pickles, Laura can be found on a trail, at the library, or in the kitchen. She lives in Northern Virginia with her husband and their two sons.


More about “Porcupine’s Pie”


Porcupine can’t wait to share Fall Feast with her woodland friends, so when everyone she greets is unable to bake their specialty due to a missing ingredient, Porcupine generously offers staples from her pantry. When Porcupine discovers that she, too, is missing a key ingredient, the friends all work together to create a new Fall Feast tradition. Porcupine’s Pie will inspire children ages 4-8 to act generously. A recipe for “friendship pie” can be found at the end of the book.

A note from Daniel M Warloch

Daniel M Warloch - Award Winning children's authorHi, my real name is Michael Rowland and I love writing children’s short stories and novels.

I worked in the printing industry for 50 years working with ‘Blue Chip’ clients such as British Telecom, Avon Cosmetics, and British Gas, to name just a few.

I live in the Wirral close to Liverpool with my wife of over 40 years, June. I have two grown-up sons and two grandsons.

I write my children’s work under the pen name of Daniel M Warloch because as you will see from the list of books, I wrote -9/11: Official Complicity and I didn’t want to associate a serious novel with children’s, and that is the reason I use a pen name.

Apart from writing children’s novels and short stories, I am a Service Provider for Autism Together, working part-time with people, young and old on the Spectrum.
