Every Wednesday, I ask a writer the same five easy questions. In an effort to support and promote fellow wordsmiths, I feature authors who write a variety of genres, from sweet inspirational to mainstream thrillers. The writers themselves may be aspiring, published, or best-selling--all have made an impact on my life.
Thank you for joining me in welcoming… Tracy Madison!!
Tracy and I met when I moved back to Michigan four years ago. At the time she was president of MVRWA, and she soon signed with Dorchester for her first book, A Taste of Magic. Since then, she's published three more books in the Magic series, and this month marks her first book release through Harlequin Special Edition! Miracle Under the Mistletoe is available now. Tracy has such a warm, fun voice--you're in for a treat with any of her books.
Let's get to it!
1. Beverage of choice?
Coffee. Always coffee. If for some reason, coffee isn’t available, then I’ll make do with tea.
2. Any pets?
Yes, we have two cats (Briar & Ellie), and two dogs (Sadie & Holly). Briar owns the house, even over the dogs, which cracks me up.
3. Dream vacation?
I’ve always dreamed about going to Ireland. Someday!
4. What are you listening to right now?
My dog (Holly) snoring in her sleep, and a fan I always turn on when I’m going to write. It works as white noise for me.
5. What's for dinner?
We all have colds, so the traditional homemade chicken noodle soup is on the menu.
Tracy, I love coffee in the morning and tea in the afternoons, and I really want to borrow your cats. Then Briar could rule the house in peace for a few days, right? :) Ireland sounds fabulous with all that lush, green scenery, plus, I enjoy the Irish accent.
You're the first writer here who admits to using white noise, and what a great idea to use a fan. I rarely write with music or television on, but the noise of construction sometimes bothers me. Next time it does, I'll drag a fan in here. And so sorry your household is under the weather. It's been a rough fall for illness. Hope you feel better. Thanks so much for being my guest today, and congratulations on your release!
Miracle Under the Mistletoe
Grady and Olivia Foster shared everything—passion, friendship and a soul-deep connection that made their marriage blissful. Then tragedy struck when a drunk driver stole the life of their young son Cody just days before Christmas. Olivia begged for space to heal. But space became estrangement, and now, as Christmas approaches again, Olivia fears it's time to call it quits.
But Grady's not giving up without a fight. He'd given her space. Now he's determined to give her what she really needs—all the desire, devotion and tireless love it takes to heal their loss and rekindle the spark that once made them the perfect couple…whether Olivia likes it or not! To save their love, he'll pull out all the stops…and pray for a Christmas miracle.
Tracy Madison is an award-winning author who lives with her husband, four kids, and too many pets. A night-owl by nature, Tracy tends to write when the rest of her household is asleep. She happily admits her addiction to coffee, reading, online shopping, and reality television (of the cooking variety). When she isn't writing, Tracy is likely to have her nose buried in a book. To learn more about Tracy, head to her website and be friends with her on Facebook.
I started writing a new book, and it's been challenging and exciting. What are you working on this week?
Have a wonderful Wednesday!
