Interview with Jaime Jo Wright
Welcome to the blog today!! Let’s get right to the questions.
When I first see something about Jaime Jo Wright, I automatically think of your love for coffee. I, too, share a love of coffee. What’s your favorite coffee beverage right now?
I still am pretty traditional. I love a cup of black coffee and often like to add in some whipping cream for creamy goodness!
I have gotten away from adding sugar in my coffee, but I still need some flavored creamer. Maybe one day I’ll be daring and try black. Do you even dabble in the tea world?
If I must. 😉
I only drink tea when I’m sick. Think you would consider a career as a barista if you weren’t a writer?
Hands down, yes!
I love how you call your husband Cap’n Hook! What was it like traveling with him during the first several years of your marriage?
Heavenly. My happy place is in a pick-up truck going cross-country with him to Montana. Usually with a grocery bag full of books tucked in between camping gear, fly rods, and bear spray. 🙂
MY TBR pile is about a mile long. What’s in your current TBR pile?
Hmmm, currently I have The Captured Bride, by Michelle Griep and A Daring Venture, by Elizabeth Camden.
I just read The Captured Bride! It was great.
Favorite sweet indulgence?
I love a warm chocolate chip cookie 🙂
Yes! Nothing better than that!!
If you could jump inside any book right now, and experience life with the characters, what book would you choose?
Oooo what a great question! Probably, Jane Eyre. I’d love to walk the moors with her!
Can I come with you??
You’ve written both novellas and novels. How different is the writing process for these?
For me, not horribly different, although novellas are much shorter. LOL! Novellas cut out a lot of the ‘extras’ in a story. The other scenes and digging deep into the characters. I call novellas “bullet-point” stories. Each scene is a bullet point to completion.
Do you prefer one over the other?
Not really. I love writing them both. Novellas are fun cause they’re a trip away from the darker elements of mystery. LOL So sometimes I need the lighthearted.
Can you give us a sneak peek at your new book, The Reckoning at Gossamer Pond?
LOL, You’re fishing! LOL Sneak peek. Well, I can say that the present day character, Annalise has a pretty big secret. One, that I’m sort of surprised she hasn’t already self-combusted by holding it in so long. And her love interest, Garrett? Yeah, he’s pretty ripped. He’s a professional rock climber and his casual attitude toward everything definitely fuels Annalise’s Type-A personality.
I can feel the swoon meter coming out in a later post! Thank you so much for stopping by today 🙂
About the Book
For over a century, the town of Gossamer Grove has thrived on its charm and Midwestern values, but Annalise Forsythe knows painful secrets, including her own, hover just beneath the pleasant facade. When a man is found dead in his run-down trailer home, Annalise inherits the trailer, along with the pictures, vintage obituaries, and old revival posters covering its walls. As she sorts through the collection, she’s wholly unprepared for the ramifications of the dark and deadly secrets she’ll uncover.
A century earlier, Gossamer Grove has been stirred into chaos by the arrival of controversial and charismatic twin revivalists. The chaos takes a murderous turn when Libby Sheffield, working at her father’s newspaper, receives an obituary for a reputable church deacon hours before his death. As she works with the deacon’s son to unravel the mystery behind the crime, it becomes undeniably clear that a reckoning has come to town—but it isn’t until another obituary arrives that they realize the true depths of the danger they’ve waded into.
Two women, separated by a hundred years, must uncover the secrets within the borders of their own town before it’s too late and they lose their future—or their very souls.
