I’m guest posting over at Shelley Workinger’s blog, But What Are They Eating?

Confession time: The original candy in The Jelly Bean Crisis wasn’t jellybeans. I changed the candy to jellybeans to tailor the book to my American agent / audience. It was originally The Winegum Theory (winegums are NZ lollies 🙂 Like jet-plane-lolly-flavoured thick-coin-shaped gum candy lined up in a tube-shaped-wrapper). What I love is that the Jelly Bean / Wine Gum Theory works for everything – it’s all about delayed gratification, choices, and happiness. (And candy!)
