Author Heddrick McBride known for McBride Collection of stories will be the show's first guest when it debuts on July 27th, 2013. As a parent, McBride's dissatisfaction with available printed matter for families like his, propelled him to begin to write and publish books. In an interview McBride said "The stories were outdated and the characters didn't represent how people look today. Instead of complaining, I decided to start writing. We teach a lesson in every story, while keeping readers engaged and entertained". His series can be found on and (Barnes and Noble)
