Author Strikes Gold With ‘Golden Girls’ Trivia Book

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – A self-published trivia book about The Golden Girls has turned out to be pure gold for the author.

According to Michael Craig, author of Thank You for Being a Friend (Lulu), the book continues to be a hot seller. It also helped him score a TV appearance on a show honoring the 20th anniversary of the sitcom.

Not bad for a guy who had to write the book without owning The Golden Girls episodes on DVD.

He says he had to watch the shows each day on the Lifetime TV network to come up with questions like: True or False? Sophia was accused of burning down the retirement home by leaving a fondue-chafing dish on in her room overnight. The answer is false. She left a hotplate on while making S’mores.

Although this is not a trivia question in the book, Craig estimates the total cheesecakes consumed by the Golden Girls was 220 – about one cake per episode.

Sadly though, Craig says he still has yet to meet any of the cast members.
