In this, her seventh book, Janice Madden shares with us, her readers, stories which are rich with the vivid and concrete details of her memories of particular places, people, animals and experiences. And there is no denying the stories are told with a touch of laughter and a sense of gentle irony, by someone who delights in words. Yet through the particular focus of each story, it is possible to discern the theme that unites them all. What is "The Red Carpet"?
Janice's stories tease into life for us the threads of her own life experiences and help us to understand the mysterious power of love to link human beings across generations, continents and cultures.

As always you bring the vivid imagery into my mind as I read your book. The Red Carpet is a triumph of visualisation and humanity. Thank you for my signed copy. I didn't realise when buying a copy from the website that this would be signed by the author!Richard (USA),
Your latest Book, arrived a couple of days ago. A good eye catching cover to support the title. I have had a quick skim through it and read the preface and a few of the shorter stories, the others all in due course. In fact I found the preface to be a story in itself and a good one at that. The Red Carpet reminds me in a general sort of way of the Summing Up by Somerset Maugham. I wish you every success with this latest book which readers of your previous works will no doubt be able to relate to quite easily.Sandy (UK),
