Interview with Jen Talty, author of Georgia Moon
25 Nov 2019
What can you tell us about your new release, Georgia Moon?
Georgia Moon is Book 2 in the It’s All in the Whiskey series. It’s about a young woman, named Georgia Moon Whiskey who has been in love with Luke Hannah for as long as she can remember. Only, he has a secret that if Georgia Moon ever finds out, she might not ever be able to forgive him.
What or who inspired you to become an author?
This is always a hard question for me to answer because I didn’t always want to be a writer. I literally went to my small local grocery store back in 2004 and glanced at the bookshelves and realized I had read every book the store had stocked. So, I picked up a pen and a pad of paper and hand wrote my first book. I’ve been writing every day since. That book is titled IN TWO WEEKS and was first published in 2007.
What’s on your top 5 list for the best books you’ve ever read?
My five favorite books are…drum roll please… Hello Darkness by Sandra Brown, Tell No One by Harlon Coban, Lost Girls by Bob Mayer, Isabella Moon by Laura Benedict, and All Roads Lead to You by Jennifer Probst.
Say you’re the host of a literary talk show. Who would be your first guest? What would you want to ask?
Oh boy, that is a loaded question. But I’m going to do this a little differently and invite a character from a book instead of an author. I want to have Hannibal Lecture on my show and I want to know what vegetable he’d serve at a dinner party.
What’s your favorite thing about writing?
Re-writing. It’s where the magic happens.
What is a typical day like for you?
I get up, do some admin work, then I write. I might go for a walk. Then write some more. Have dinner with my husband then maybe write a little more and then watch some TV before going to bed. I lead a pretty boring life.
What scene in Georgia Moon was your favorite to write?
The opening scene. But that’s true for every book I write.
Do you have a motto, quote or philosophy you live by?
Nothing like wine and sunshine.
