Merry Christmas with Rachelle Rea Cobb! (Author Q&A)
To me, the Christmas season is all about being with friends and family. So I’ve loved having author friends stop by the blog to chat about holiday-ish things! We’ll have a couple more as the month goes by. Today, my friend Rachelle Rea Cobb is sharing with us what she loves about this time of year. Grab a coffee and a Christmas cookie and let’s talk!
Q: What’s one of your favorite aspects of the holiday season?
A: I love so many aspects! I adore Christmas music, decorating the Christmas tree, classic Christmas movies and the Hallmark ones, Christmas lights, and Christmas parties with friends and family. And all the desserts! I have an insatiable sweet tooth. 🙂
Q: Me too. I LOVE all the desserts at Christmas. What’s your favorite holiday movie?
A: I love Going My Way with Bing Crosby, Christmas in Connecticut, White Christmas, and all of the traditional kids movies like Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer. Yet again I’m failing to pick just one, sorry! 🙂
Q: No worries. I have too many faves to pick one too! And Christmas in Connecticut is absolutely on my list! Cider or cocoa?
A: Neither! I dislike warm drinks. Strange, I know. Except I recently discovered I do like chai tea!
Q: I like chai as well. But also . . . coffee. And cider. And cocoa. So, tell me, partial to Thanksgiving or Christmas and why?
A: Christmas. I wish it weren’t so commercialized, but I just love everything about Christmas (see above!). I look forward to it every year, and Thanksgiving feels like the kick-off this special holiday season. 🙂
Q: I love Christmastime so much. It’s just such a special time of year. Tell us about your novels!
A: Dirk and Gwyn are the main characters in the Steadfast Love series, set in 1566 in England and Holland. While the Dutch Revolution and Reformation rage, can a Protestant man save a Catholic woman who believes him to be the chiefest of all sinners–and a murderer?
I’m also the author of the writing guide, Write Well, which I released earlier this year for those authors intent on learning the structure of writing so that they can get back to the heart and art of it. 🙂
Sounds wonderful. Thank you, Rachelle, and Merry Christmas, readers!
