31 Wicked Days of Xmas With Megan Frampton

  • What is next for you book wise in 2013?

My romantic women’s fiction title, Vanity Fare (w/a Megan Caldwell), is out at the very, very end of this year. Then there are at least three Megan Frampton historical releases: Hero of My Heart, which comes out April 8, then a short story titled Her Betrothed’s Dilemma, and then another full-length, title TBD, coming in October.

  • Do you have a favorite book of 2012?

Huh. I really loved Molly O’Keefe’s contemporary, Can’t Buy Me Love. I also thought A Gentleman Undone by Cecilia Grant was stupendous.

  • What is your favorite holiday food?

The pomegranate and prosecco cocktails we have on Christmas Eve. Makes dealing with the family a wee bit easier.

  • Least favorite holiday song?

Little Drummer Boy.

  • Do you have any holiday family traditions?

Every year, my husband Scott makes a Christmas mix CD that we send out to family and friends. He has an enormous Christmas music collection, and his discs are amazing. Plus he’s on a mission to find versions of “Little Drummer Boy” (see above) that I can tolerate.

My mother-in-law makes homemade donuts and cinnamon buns on Christmas Eve, which we eat Christmas morning.

  • Worst gift you ever received?

A contact lens case from one of my closest friends. I haven’t worn contact lenses since I was thirty years old.

  • Worst gift you ever gave?

I like to think I am an awesome gift-giver, but I know I’ve given my husband some shirts he thinks would look better on my gay black husband.

  • Favorite holiday memory?

This is an odd one, but one holiday I had a tremendously bad asthma attack, and I spent Christmas Eve on the couch looking at our tree without my glasses. Because of my astigmatism, the lights kept oscillating, and it was so pretty. I felt very at peace at that moment.

  • If you could share one lesser known fact about yourself to our readers, what will it be?

Instead of leaving cookies and milk for Santa, I left a can of Pabst Blue RIbbon and a pack of Camels because my dad said Santa would like those better.

  • Weirdest thing you collect?

I don’t really collect anything—I have too much stuff already.

    Hi Megan and Nat, et al!

    Loved the interview questions and your answers. The Christmas tree lights sounds (well horrid because of the reason), but wonderful and beautiful. I can totally see that. There’s something always mesmerizing about a twinkling Christmas tree at night. Of course I’m also on “sick brain” right now, so you know.

    As for a weird thing I collect… nothing comes to mind now, but when I was little I collected unique pencils and erasers. One that comes to mind is an eraser shaped like a purple crayon. Looked just like one of the larger ones.

    Don’t enter me in the giveaway please, I’m just here to show Megan some love. 😀

      Oh! Duh! And I wanted to add – the holiday mix CD sounds awesome!! What a great gift. Jealous – I need someone like that in my life!

    The weirdest thing I collect is ink pens. I work in the medical field and drug reps would bring in these neat ink pens and give us tons so I started collecting them. Some of them are really unique 🙂

    Miniature bottles of alcohol I buy from everywhere I travel.

  • Molly O'Keefe December 3, 2012 at 10:51 am

    Cooking magazines – it’s outrageous how many I have. Great interview – can’t wait for Megan’s books and her difficult characters!!!

    I collected rooster statues at one point until my husband left my favorite one in someone’s freezer in South Africa. Long story but the collecting bug stopped after that. And prosecco and pomegranate cocktails sound divine!

    Caribou coffee mugs :). I even have one that’s a Christmas tree ornament.

    not weird…. but I honestly collect/hoard books… that’s it really

    Fridge magnets of places I’ve traveled or seen.

    The only thing I collect is cobalt blue glass. I don’t think it is weird though…although I do have some strange shaped cobalt blue objects. Like a couple chickens, a frog, fish and a couple of balls that hang. Most of it is bottles, vases, etc. though.

    Great interview!

    I don’t think I collect anything to weird…I collect giraffes (but giraffes are so cool), I also hoard yarn and books 😀

  • Lily B December 8, 2012 at 12:08 pm

    beads I guess and if you ask my husband 🙂 books

  • bn100 December 20, 2012 at 8:52 pm
