The genre for my new story, WHEN THE DAY COMES, has a lot of readers talking. Is it time-travel? Dual timeline? Science-Fiction? Historical fiction, times two? Or, is it a little of each one? The story is about a woman named Libby who is born with a gift. She lives in 1774 colonial Williamsburg and when she goes to sleep there, she wakes up in 1914 Gilded Age New York City. Back and forth she goes, every day, with no time passing while she’s go...

Jennifer Vido: What inspired your new release, THE HOMEWRECKERS? Mary Kay Andrews:  I was watching one of those DIY reality television shows and the title The Homewreckers came to me. Not coincidentally, we’d just purchased a fixer-upper beach cottage on Tybee Island, Ga, where the book was set, so I had the title and the research, and very quickly, the plot started to come together.   Jen: What is causing angst in Hattie Kavanaugh’s pe...

Faye, your female protagonist, is half-faerie. As a writer, what is your fascination with all things fae? (I ask as somebody who is more interested in vampires and werewolves). Honestly, my obsession with the fae started when I was about four or five…with the movie Thumbelina. I know I burnt through at least one of those VHS tapes. But it wasn’t enough. I started searching for books on faerie tales–I was very much a library kid. I got hooke...

When an out-of-town captain and a rookie K-9 handler team up to stop a bomber, the results are explosive…   I adore writing romantic suspense with lovable, courageous K-9s in the mix. My K-9 Alaska series has featured a Combat Tracker dog who had to retire early from the military, a therapy rescue dog, a Victim Specialist K-9 with the FBI, and a dual-purpose police K-9. I enjoyed writing those K-9s so much that I’m working on two more storie...

Jennifer Vido: What inspired you to write SUMMER AT THE CAPE? RaeAnne Thayne: I have been fascinated for a long time by the unique relationship between twins. I was interested in exploring what happens to one twin when their “womb-mate” dies. Factor in another older sister who was not part of that twin relationship and I wondered how the dynamics of a family would change with the death of one of the twins. A big subplot of this book involves ...

Reading for a surgery center
Guests / May 13, 2005

Yup, time to spend the day in the surgery center, waiting for my husband’s treatment to be finished, and nothing much to do except watch a really lame series of programs on the television which I’d normally never be exposed. Now, I can sit in suspension while wondering how people can handle that pap, but I’ve learned over the years that the boob tube does seem to have a mesmerizing hold on millions, something I’l...

Book Signing — Mary Kay Andrews
Guests / May 12, 2005

The thing I like about a book signing when you go with someone else you make it into an “event” by always combining with food. Or drinks. I can do drinks too. But the best part is the anticipation. M and I were the only ones who could make it to the Mary Kay Andrews (MKA) signing last night in Plano, but we had a blast. MKA is delightful in person and we learned all the secrets of a best selling book– I’d be happ...

Curious and what?
Guests / May 11, 2005

Just invited to check out a group of authors on their blog who are helping a readers group become more exciting. Now, color me stupid, but unless those readers are part of an active readers group, know the trials and tribulations of keeping a group dynamic and growing, isn’t it asking for just a general well-meaning opinion? I really don’t get it. I’d rather ask advice from a group similar to the one I’d be tryin...
