About the book:
Abigail Argent stands out. Some people notice that she always wears gloves and shudder when they know why. The ones who know her best notice her ability with metal. Abigail's particular talent lies in the colouring of alloys, for seeing the beauty in a plain piece of metal and being able to draw it out. Her study leads her to discover a connection between her own craft and that of her favourite childhood myth: changing lead into gold. Moving to Venice, Abigail continues to uncover more about the history of her trade while making friends, and a lover, whose lives become inextricably linked with her own. But her abilities soon peak the interests of a powerful group, determined to guard the secret that she may unwittingly expose. Delving into the deepest secrets of ancient Italy, Abigail's story will take everything you think you know about alchemy and turn it on its head.

Wednesday, March 4, 3 pm ET the man with the world’s second-highest IQ and the highest IQ in America, television writer Rick Rosner joins Halli at her table when he visits The Halli Casser-Jayne Show.
In 2012, The Huffington Post ranked Rosner, along with brainiacs like theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking and chess Grandmaster Garry Kasparov, as one of the ten smartest people on the planet. According to the Giga Society, he has an 198 IQ which makes it all the more remarkable that, after graduating high school, Rosner forged documents, fabricated records, created disguises, and lied to officials so he could to return to high school over and again. From his teens through most of his 20s, Rosner spent time in five different high schools from Hollywood to Harlem.
All of that education and work as a stripper, a bouncer, a roller-skating waiter and a nude model somehow prepared him for his adult career as a TV writer. Rick’s credits include shows such as Remote Control, Crank Yankers, The Man Show, The Emmy Awards, The Grammy Awards and Jimmy Kimmel Live! All in all, Rosner has contributed more than 2,500 hours of broadcast television, earning himself 7 Writer’s Guild Awards and Emmy nominations.
TV Writer, brainiac, former stripper, nude model and more on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show, Wednesday March 4th 3 pm ET. For more information and to listen to the show visit Halli Casser-Jayne dot com.

By turns sad, joyful, frightening, funny, and inspirational, Elliott’s second novel is a marvel of tone and setting." Support childhood literacy by taking the Birthday Party Pledge!
