This year I've invited several authors and book bloggers for a fun Christmas Interview. My next guest is author Jennifer Joyce:
If you could go anywhere in the world to celebrate Christmas, where would you go?
After watching Home Alone 2: Lost In New York as a kid, I always wanted to spend Christmas in New York, which we did in 2011. It was amazing to see the huge tree at Rockefeller Center and my kids loved seeing Santa at Macy’s. We also got to spend Christmas Day at Central Park Zoo and have a ride around the park snuggled under a blanket in a horse and carriage. I’d love to go back again!
And what would be the last place you'd want to be stuck during Christmas?
I think being stuck in an airport. Being delayed is always a pain, but imagine being stranded over Christmas – no thank you!
If you had to choose between Disney World and The Wizarding World of HP for a visit during Christmas, which one would you choose?
Disney World, every time (sorry HP fans).
If you had to choose a book for a teenager who's not a big reader as a Christmas present, which book would you choose?
My teenager (who is a big reader anyway) recently devoured Nerve by Jeanne Ryan. She went into it hesitantly, but was soon hooked and wanted everyone to read it afterwards!
Favourite Christmas gif?
There are so many fantastic Christmas gifs, but it’s got to be an Elf one. After a thorough search, I’ve decided on the ‘smiling is my favourite’ one.
Jennifer Joyce is a writer of romantic comedies who lives in Manchester with her husband and their two daughters. Her latest novel, The Wedding Date is out now. You can find out more about Jennifer and her books on:
About The Wedding Date
Delilah James, singleton and smoothie-addict, has six months to find a date for her oldest friend’s wedding. Oh, and to prove to her ex, best man Ben, that she has totally moved on since he dumped her out-of-the-blue nine months, eight days and seventeen hours ago…
So, with her two BFFs playing Cupid, Delilah launches herself into the high-tech, fast-paced and frankly terrifying world of dating. Luckily there’s the hot new guy at work, Adam Sinclair, to practice her flirting on – even if, as a colleague, he’s strictly off-limits!
Yet time’s running out and date after disastrous date forces Delilah to tell a little white lie – and invent a fake boyfriend! But will her secret crush on Adam ruin everything? Does she even care about Ben anymore? And is it too late to untangle her web of lies and take a real date to the wedding…?
