Hi there, I’m Savannah Webb, owner of Webb’s Glass Shop on Central Avenue in St. Petersburg, Florida. One of my artist friends has been featured in the local neighborhood newspaper with the famous questions from the Actor’s Studio television program. The interview was great fun and they thought it would be interesting for me to answer the questions as well.
What is your favorite word? Joy.
What is your least favorite word? Hate.
What turns you on? World class art of any kind. The written word, live performances, sculpture and most of all, exquisite blown glass.
What turns you off? Arrogance, impatience, intolerance and/or inattention. We’re all here for such a short time.
What sound or noise do you love? An a cappella choir in perfect harmony.
What sound or noise do you hate? No surprise here, broken glass.
What is your favorite curse word? On rare occasions, mainly after a failed glass-blowing session, I’ve been known to curse like a sailor — that’s all I’ll say.
What profession other than your own would you like to attempt? A portrait artist.
What profession would you not like to do? I would be the world’s worst accountant.
If heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the pearly gates? Hello, Savannah! Come on in. Your studio is waiting for you.
A fatal hit-and-run in front of Savannah Webb’s glass shop proves to be no accident…
A highlight of Savannah’s new glass bead workshop is a technique called flame-working, which requires the careful wielding of acetylene torches. Understandably, safety is a top priority. But as Savannah is ensuring her students’ safety inside, a hit-and-run driver strikes down a pedestrian outside her shop.
The victim is Nicole Borawski, the bartender/manager at the Queen’s Head Pub, owned by Savannah’s boyfriend Edward. It quickly becomes clear that this was no random act of vehicular manslaughter. Now the glass shop owner is all fired up to get a bead on the driver – before someone else meets a dead end.
Cheryl Hollon now writes full-time after she left an engineering career of designing and building military flight simulators in amazing countries such as England, Wales, Australia, Singapore, Taiwan, and India. Fulfilling the dream of a lifetime, she combines her love of writing with a passion for creating glass art. In the small glass studio behind her house in St. Petersburg, Florida, Cheryl and her husband design, create, and produce fused glass, stained glass, and painted glass artworks.
