Special Christmas Interview with Author Meg Farrell

1. What is your favorite Christmas movie? Is there a reason/tradition behind your pick?

National Lampoons Christmas Vacation. Cousin Eddie is why I love this movie. He is just like the "Bubbas" we have in Mississippi. I think my favorite scene is when he is dumping the RV tank into the storm sewer in his all-too-short robe, and drinking a beer. Carry on, sir. Carry on.

2. If you could kiss anyone under the mistletoe, who would it be??? (Significant others not allowed!)

Forgive me, Husband. My answer is between two guys, Henry Cavill or Sam Heughan. Excuse me while I swoon.

3. What was the best, and worst, Christmas you ever had?

The best Christmas I ever had was the year my Mom got us "Pumpkin Patch Kids". Notice I didn't say Cabbage Patch Kids. We were dirt poor. My Dad was a truck driver and work was slow. Cabbage Patch Kids were the rage! Mom tried her best, but they were sold out everywhere. She found a suitable alternative and the three of us thought was has stumbled onto the next big thing!

I don't think I've ever had a bad Christmas. Even when we didn't get much, I loved being with my family.

4. What is your favorite thing about Christmas?

I can answer that in 3 words: Lights, Lights, Lights. Go Griswold on it! Light up the neighborhood. I wish my husband was brave enough to hang lights on our house.

5. Which character that you've written loves Christmas the most? Worst? Why?

Cade Miles. Cade has had a rough upbrining from an absentee Mother, to a father that worked around the clock to provide. His gandparents ended up raising him. Irma, his grandmother, always made it a special time. Not about gifts, much like my own mother, but about family. Spending that time loving each other, and enjoying tons of great food. I can almost smell the macaroni in the oven.

Thanks, Meg!

Where to find Meg:

I'm from North Mississippi, US. I'm a busy wife and mother, but decided to follow my dream of writing a novel. I completed the first draft of A Place to Stand during NaNoWriMo 2013 fulfilling a lifelong dream of becoming a writer.

My motivation to finish the dream, by publishing my book, was found among the most amazing group of people at a small conference in Nashville, TN called UtopYA. It is a glorious place, aptly named. 

My husband, Jason, and I have 3 children, 2 old dogs, and 2 surly cats.

I am a huge fan of all things Supernatural (show and otherwise). I love fiction, young adult, dystopian, and erotic romance. I don't judge adults that read young adult. We just didn't have stories this good when we were growing up. I just enjoy a great story whether it is intended for my age or not. I look forward to writing YA to share with my daughter.
