Have you always wanted to be an author?
J: I have since I was thirteen. When I discovered the fun of telling stories, I never wanted to stop!
Where do you stand on Hallmark Christmas movies?
J: Mmmmm, this one’s tough. Typically, not a fan. This year? I was actually advised by my doctor to watch “lighthearted” material to help ease some of my autoimmune anxiety struggles. LOL So, I actually enjoyed a few although desperately missing my dark, Gothic comics and unsolved mystery podcasts.
Tea or coffee? Iced or hot?
J: COFFEE! Hot.
If you could write in another genre, which would it be?
J: Probably speculative. I think it’d be fun to write a whole other world.
I would love to see a speculative story from you! *swoon*
What are your favorite scenes to write?
J: The creepy ones!!! I usually write them and then have to edit so they’re not so dark as to alienate 80% of my readers LOL!
Those happen to be my favorite to read!
Which one of your characters is MOST like you? Least like you?
J: Hmmmm, most like me . . . probably Heidi from The Curse of Misty Wayfair. Least like me? Ivy from The House on Foster Hill.
Could you see your books turning into movies? If so which would you want produced first?
J: I think it’d be fun to see them turned into movies! I think my preference would be The House on Foster Hill because--I mean--creepy house….
I would love to see them try and pull that one off.
What is your favorite holiday?
J: Thanksgiving. I love cozy home, candles, pie, and naps. LOL!
MMMM. Yes, love all those things!
What’s your favorite season?
J: Autumn, for sure, with Winter a close second.
AGREED! It's not even spring yet and I'm anxiously awaiting fall.
Where did the inspiration for this story come from?
J: There were quite a few elements that contributed to it. I’ve always wanted to write a creepy story around an asylum. Some of it was personal experience, to be honest. And then, I wanted the challenge of writing a ghost story without actually writing a ghost story. LOL I can’t explain further without giving away spoilers.
You did an AMAZING job blending both of these thoughts into a beautifully creepy story. (That's all I'm going to say because you all need to read it yourselves)
Proficient gift wrapper or gift bag and done?
J: How about neither? I usually forget both and end up Walmart bagging it with a pathetic excuse that I’m a writer not a crafter.
Ha, well I'm sure all of your friends are fine with it if you keep pumping out your books.
Thank you so much Jaime for being here today!
If you haven't read a Jaime Jo Wright book I HIGHLY recommend you run to your nearest library or bookstore and get your hands on one.
ABOUT THE BOOK
"Left at an orphanage as a child, Thea Reed vowed to find her mother someday. Now grown, her search takes her to Pleasant Valley, Wisconsin, in 1908. When clues lead her to a mental asylum, Thea uses her experience as a post-mortem photographer to gain access and assist groundskeeper Simeon Coyle in photographing the patients and uncovering the secrets within. However, she never expected her personal quest would reawaken the legend of Misty Wayfair, a murdered woman who allegedly haunts the area and whose appearance portends death.
A century later, Heidi Lane receives a troubling letter from her mother—who is battling dementia—compelling her to travel to Pleasant Valley for answers to her own questions of identity. When she catches sight of a ghostly woman who haunts the asylum ruins in the woods, the long-standing story of Misty Wayfair returns—and with it, Heidi's fear for her own life.
As two women across time seek answers about their identities and heritage, can they overcome the threat of the mysterious curse that has them inextricably intertwined?"
