What other books of yours are coming out soon? I’m revising a short story that was published in a collection of historical Christmas stories. It’s now a novella and will release late this year. I’ve added another point of view, which was trickier than I anticipated.
If you could spend an evening with one contemporary person (not a family member of yours), who would it be and why? With a bit of trepidation, I would say Tammy Jernigan.
