About the Author
Professional coffee drinker, Jaime Wright, resides in the hills of Wisconsin. She loves to write spirited turn-of-the-century romance, stained with suspense. Her day job finds her as a Director of Sales & Development. She’s wife to a rock climbing, bow-hunting Pre-K teacher, mom to a coffee-drinking little girl, and a little boy she fondly refers to as her mischievous “Peter Pan”. Jaime completes her persona by being an admitted social media junkie and coffee snob. She is a member of ACFW and has the best writing sisters EVER!
1. What top 5 books do you currently have sitting on your TBR pile?
Hmmm, fabulous question! Currently, I have: The Accidental Guardian, by Mary Connealy, The Heart Between Us, by Lindsay Harrel, The View From Rainshadow Bay, by Colleen Coble, The Mayflower Bride, by Kimberley Woodhouse, The Melody of the Soul, by Liz Tolsma
2. When you are not writing, what other "hats" do you wear?
I used to say “too many!” But I’ve dwindled them down to my day job and being a wife and a mom. I don’t commit to much more than that, and my favorite of all three (including writing), is being a wife and a mom!
3. What type of research did you do for The Reckoning at Gossamer Pond?
I had a ton of help from my pastor who’s also a history-nerd. (And a far better researcher than I am!) I read old newspaper articles, studied how the Victorians wrote obituaries, played for hours on Ancestry.com (i know, tough right? :)), and other types of research not limited to how to break glass windows on a car.
4. What inspired the idea for The Reckoning at Gossamer Pond?
My overactive imagination. LOL! It started with the idea of what would happen if someone submitted an obituary for someone else before they died. Then it evolved into a story of a town with hidden secrets, two heroines with secrets of their own, ill-timed obituaries, and I figured we’d plop some tent revivalists in for good measure. :)
5. What did you as an author take away from writing The Reckoning at Gossamer Pond?
My Grampa used to sing an old hymn: “grace, grace, God’s grace, grace that will pardon and cleanse within”... TRAGP is all about grace. Because we can dissect our past choices into little bits and find nothing but the need for grace. How freeing is it when we can bring those secrets into the light and be washed clean?
6. What is your current WIP? What can you tell us about this project?
My current project is final edits on The Curse of Misty Wayfair, which is releasing early 2019! I’m super excited about it. I can tell you it is probably the most personal novel I’ve written yet, focusing on identity, anxiety, and the struggle to find our purpose. Oh, and there are many haunting elements like an old asylum, a legend of a ghost, (don’t worry, this isn’t a paranormal story), and a hero who shoots bow and arrow.
