My guest blogger today is the uber-talented author, Peggy Jaeger. We’ve agreed there aren’t enough Peggy’s in literature and it was a good way for us to begin talking. Both of us writing for The Wild Rose Press, we sometimes get in each other’s way on the Tuesday night chat room when called on. Which Peggy?
So, please welcome – Peggy Jaeger, she helps people find their HEA (Happily Ever After).
Her latest book: A KISS UNDER THE CHRISTMAS LIGHTS
Summary of A Kiss Under the Christmas Lights: Christmas is a few weeks away and Gia San Valentino meets the perfect guy, but a misunderstanding has her thinking he’s something he’s not. Perfect guy? Or Forbidden Fruit?
We know each other through The Wild Rose Press who publishes some of our work. Do you publish with other publishers and who? Yes, Kensington/Lyrical Shine
What are you working on now? A brand new small town contemporary humorous romance series about three sisters who collectively run a “one stop shopping” Bridal business in their small New Hampshire town.
Favorite quote (from any source): If you can be anything, be kind.
Who is the author/artist that inspires you the most, and why? Nora Roberts/J.D.Robb. She writes characters who are real people in the way they talk, think, and act. I can see myself being friends with them.
If stranded on an island, what one book would you keep with you? New York to Dallas by J.D.Robb. I cry like a baby every time I read it.
What are you reading right now? (besides these questions…) Dreaming of Manderlay by Leah Marie Brown (a modern retelling of REBECCA)
Tell us 3 fascinating things about you:
(I don’t know if they are fascinating but here goes):
My left eye is significantly smaller than my right
I love scary movies – the scarier the better (and remember, scary doesn’t have to mean gory)
I’m a great mimic.
Describe your ideal work space…and then tell us about your actual one: My actual one is my ideal one. I write in an office in my attic that my husband designed for me. It overlooks our forest/woodland property and I can watch the seasons change outside my window while I type. It’s quiet, beautiful, and perfect for me.
What advice do you have for other writers/artists? Never give up on a dream. I wanted to write and publish my entire life. Life got in the way and I couldn’t devote myself to it the way I wanted, but I always dreamed I would someday be a published romance author. My first book was published when I was 55, so dreams don’t die – people let them. Never give up on a dream and don’t let anyone else convince you to.
Where can readers find you online? Good Lord, where can’t they is the better question!! I’m obnoxiously social on line;
