GREETINGS TO ALL “THOUGHTS ON THIS ‘n THAT” BLOG FOLLOWERS!
The HOLIDAYS are fast approaching and we’ve decided to do something a little different. Over the next few weeks, we’re going to feature some of our favorite authors and find out what they like best about the HOLIDAYS. We’ll also find out what their latest book project is.
JILLIAN MEDOFF, Author
We all fell in love with Jillian Medoff after reading her novel, I COULDN’T LOVE YOU MORE (5 Spot). It’s about a mother who has to make a decision no parent can’t fathom – having to choose which one of her children she will save.
Jillian’s new novel, THIS COULD HURT (Harper) will be published next year on January 9th. It’s a razor-sharp and achingly funny novel which takes a look at how important work is in our lives. She creates a group of compelling and flawed characters who fall in and out of love, and are always dreaming for something better in their lives. Be sure to pre-order your copy of THIS COULD HURT at your favorite independent bookstore.
We asked Jillian some questions about the upcoming Holidays and these are her answers.
CR: Favorite Holiday?
JM: Definitely Thanksgiving; everyone eats too much, complains about eating too much, watches too much TV and sits around too long. It’s an American Holiday and everyone’s included.
CR: Favorite present you’ve ever given?
JM: A surprise birthday party for my daughter, Olivia when she turned 7.
CR: Favorite gift you’ve ever received?
JM: My kids gave me a deck of cards that they made for Mother’s Day. On each card they wrote one lovely thing about me and our relationships. It was called “52 Reasons Why We love You” and it makes me cry every time I remember it.
CR: Favorite Holiday meal and/or dessert?
JM: Turkey, cranberries, too many sweet potatoes and vanilla ice cream – Thanksgiving, baby!
CR: Message and wishes for 2018?
JM: Wishing everyone a happy, healthy and wildly successful 2018. May this country get it’s ____ together.
Thanks, Jillian. http://www.jillianmedoff.com
