Fall colors are great and they are plentiful in Vermont. One of the smallest states in the union has produced some of the most amazing things. From syrup, great works of art and our favorite fiction. Some facts about Vermont from WIKI: Population 626,000; 9620 sq mi; 80 miles wide by 160 miles long; and only 14 counties. Dairy Farming is falling but still fairly big. Captive Insurance is playing a large role in Vermont’s economy. Tourism is a major source of income. A major exporter of maple syrup. Major employers are IBM, Fletcher Allen Health Care and various Vermont Government agencies.
Ms. Barbara Comfort wrote quite a few stories set in her home state that entertained us for years. Her books are slowly disappearing from bookstores and online so you may have trouble getting copies of her stories to read. Of course, you cannot get even one of her books on Amazon Kindle or Barnes and Noble eBooks. This is a terrible thing. All of her fans would like to be able to buy her entire collection of books online just like any other. If her fans want to sign a petition to her former publishers to get all of her books in eBook format we can do it. We are still looking for Fan Fiction, Fan Art, Tish McWhinny Crosswords, Liz Bell Crosswords, search-a-words, etc. Just go to our CONTACT US page and drop us a line.

Liz Bell versus Tish McWhinney would that be a great storyline? I haven’t been able to find the Liz Bell books to read so I am asking all the Barbara Comfort fans out there would these two characters come together in a story as adversaries or would they be able to work together to solve a mystery? Wouldn’t you like to see a story with both of these characters in it. This author and these characters deserved to be remember and we are sure that there are a couple of fans would go put together a story line that us fellow fans would appreciate and even could contribute to. Just because the author is no longer with us doesn’t mean that her fans cannot create some great fan fiction and share them with the rest of us. Continue reading “Liz Bell versus Tish McWhinney”

We are so sad to hear that Barbara Comfort has passed away last month at the age of 95. We will miss her writing. We encourage all of her fans to go to the Legacy.com obituary page and sign the Guestbook. Here is the link: http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/nytimes/obituary.aspx?n=barbara-comfort&pid=157339145. We have added the article from the Times on the ABOUT page.
We will keep this website going in honor of our favorite author. Keep coming back. Over the next couple of months we hope you will send us your suggestions on some articles we could write, story suggestions for our favorite Tish McWhinney characters or anything that comes to mind in keeping with the theme of this Fan Page.
Good day to all of my fellow Barbara Comfort Fans. We hope you have all had a safe and happy holiday season. And we apologize for not posting any new updates in the News and Updates page however, there wasn’t really anything new to report. We all hope that Mrs Comfort is doing well this new year. As a fan I have been re-reading her books this past year and have enjoyed them tremendously. I have been “voting” for them to be put in Kindle Format so that I can take them with me on my trips this coming year! You can do that too by just clicking on the banner below and go to each of the books pages, where you see the Kindle Picture there is a line next to it: “I would like to read this on Kindle” and it will go to the publisher. If they get enough votes then, maybe, they will release all of her great books in a Kindle version. You don’t have to have a Kindle to read them because Amazon has a Kindle App that you can install on your computer. It is great and you can even get other books as well, some of them are offered for FREE! I have downloaded lots of great books that way. I have even gotten FREE previews of upcoming books.

Below is a message I received from David Kanell, a bookstore owner in Vermont that has some great news for fans of Barbara Comfort. Contact him directly if you would be interested in a Spiral-bound Scrap Book written by and about Barbara herself. Maybe with enough interested fans we may be able to get a reprint offered!

Sorry this posting is a little late being sent out but I hope everyone gets it okay. We are collecting our favorite quotes from the Tish McWhinny books and for those who actually know Barbara Comfort we would like your input as well. Every story that you read and character that you enjoy reading over and over again says some pretty remarkable things. Some of the sayings maybe something that you would really like to remember and use in your own day-to-day life.
It doesn’t matter what the quote is about only that it sticks in your mind and you think it is memorable enough to share. Once we have gathered about 20 or 30 of them I will put them in a database and they will begin running on the sidebar. You can post your own quotes in the comments section, in a guestbook entry or even emailing it to me. Remember to tell us which book it was in and which character said it. It doesn’t necessarily have to be from the main character to be memorable. It is always fun to read quotes from different people and we look forward to hearing from you real soon!
