I loved this booked and I love the cover. Most of Megg Jensen’s covers are pretty fantastic, and she has some many interesting looking books!
A Bit About Megg Jensen from her webpage
When people ask me to tell them something about myself, I kind of stare at them with a dropped jaw and vacant eyes. I've known me since 1975 and there really isn't much to tell that's interesting.
My mom went into labor during my sister's birthday party. Yeah, I kinda wrecked it for her. Poor girl, all she wanted for her 8th birthday was a baby sister and, boy, did she get exactly what she asked for. My mom had to leave the party to go to the hospital. I guess I was a party pooper from the moment I was born.
Want to know where I got my love of writing? From my great-grandma, Ma. She immigrated from Ireland, alone, when she was a young teen. That woman is probably the strongest woman to ever grace this planet. She lived into her 90s and even wrote a book about her life. She self-published it. Yeah, it's soooo in my blood. She left behind a love for writing and, well, quite a few Gaelic curse words.
I grew up on a farm surrounded by corn and soybeans. You're jealous, I know. Try to hold it in. My closest neighbor was a 1/4 mile away and there wasn't much beyond that. I kind of had to live in my own imagination since, well, there weren't any other kids to play with (other than my older brother & sister who spent their childhoods torturing me by tying me to trees and leaving me alone or pretending they were going to flush me down the toilet). I was totally into marching band. I was hot stuff.
I grew up. Went to college. Got married. Got divorced. Got a life. Got married. Had one kid. Adopted a second. And here I am. I love swing dancing, shoes, and my family.
:) Her books are just as good as her writing there!
