Joey Pinkney: Where did you get the inspiration to write “Bless the Bees”?
Kenneth Eade: A year ago, my wife, Valentina Eade, and I were celebrating our second wedding anniversary in San Francisco, California.

JP: What sets “Bless the Bees” apart from other books in the same genre?
KE: There are several books on “colony collapse disorder” and how it affects honey bees.

JP: What’s next for Kenneth G. Eade?
