About the Author
Meghan M. Gorecki is an author of inspirational fiction about what God can make beautiful from the ashes of history, and hearts. A lover and avid studier of people, times gone by, and fiction, she has been writing since childhood and now houses her books under Northern Belle Publishing. Coffee and red lipstick color her days as a redhead from a box, alongside her treasured tribe of family and friends in her beloved hometown of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
1. What is your favorite Christmas tradition?
The day after Thanksgiving, my family decks the house out for Christmas, then we have chicken wings and bacon/cheddar fries and eat in the living room watching White Christmas. It’s the start of the Gorecki holiday season.
2. What inspired the idea for Wrapped in Red?
Short answer? Kelly Clarkson’s Christmas album (incidentally by the same name.) Long answer: In 2015 I began doodling around with a fluffy Christmas romance idea, and I ended up setting it aside that following Valentines Day. Fast forward November, 2016, and I decided to dust it off again and it all snowballed. Thanks to how well my city of Pittsburgh does Christmas, my own family traditions, and last year being quite a hard one—this little Christmas story of my heart was born. I wrote it for fun—but the Lord had me write it to soothe the ache of 2016’s losses and the heartache of deferred hopes.
3. What character was the easiest to write? The most difficult?
The easiest to write was Merry, more or less. I just had to watch as I personally got through some struggles that I didn’t make her too salty. ;) The difficult one to write was Sam—it took him a while to open up to both Merry and me, the author!
4. Are there any scenes/characters in your story based on real-life events or people?
I love this question so much. Merry’s family is mine. With the exception of my closest-in-age sister not actually being married with a baby on the way. The opening scene, where Merry is heart-sore and frustrated that a guy cut their first/only date short claiming he had to do laundry? Totally happened to me last year. After I’d thought it’d been going somewhat well.
5. What is something readers would find surprising about you?
I get incredibly competitive and snarky in card games. Like Uno—you give me a “draw 4” card and I will carry a grudge for a week.
