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 featuring some of our favorite authors and finding out what they like best about the HOLIDAYS. We’ll also find out what their latest book project is.
Bestselling author, Martha Reynolds is the author of six books … and three of them are about chocolate. We became fast friends when we met up on line. I love all her books, but especially CHOCOLATE FOR BREAKFAST, CHOCOLATE FONDUE and BITTERSWEET CHOCOLATE. I gained three pounds just reading her books, because I have to compliment the reading with some …. chocolate, of course!
Martha’s new novel, VILLA del SOL will be published December 1st. This time she’s heading back to a more dramatic feel. It’s the story about a woman trying to find peace in her life, after tragedy has struck.
We chatted with Martha about the upcoming Holidays and she’s excited!
CR: Favorite Holiday?
MR: Thanksgiving, because of the food, of course. It’s November, it’s chilly in New England and it’s usually the first gathering after summer ends.
CR: Favorite gift you’ve given?
MR: My husband and I planned a trip a few years ago – to Switzerland. I’d been numerous times, studied there, set my first novel (and subsequent ones) there, but he’d never been. This was more like a gift to each other, but we had a lot of fun planning our travels.
CR: Favorite present you’ve received?
MR: A trip to Ireland.
CR: Favorite holiday music?
MR: Christmas – O HOLY Night for a hymn and HARD CANDY for a secular song.
CR: Favorite Holiday meal and/or dessert?
MR: Turkey with all the trimmings.
CR: Your message/wishes for 2018.
MR: Words matter. Be kind.
Thank you, Martha. Happy New Year, to you, too!
FYI: We’ll be reviewing and giving away a copy of Martha’s new novel, Villa del Sol – check back!
We’re also giving away new journals to several of our blog followers for the new year. Just tell us what your message/wishes are for 2018. We’ll announce winners in the few weeks.
