Interview with Darlene Fredette, Author of One Sweet Christmas

Please welcome Darlene Fredette to the virtual offices this morning!

[Manga Maniac Cafe] Describe yourself in 140 characters or less.

[Darlene Fredette] Wife, mother, author, and dreamer.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] Can you tell us a little about One Sweet Christmas?

[Darlene Fredette]  Candice Cane is not proud of the way she acted after her last encounter with Jackson Frost. Sure revenge was fun, but it’s left Jackson standing, angry and looking for answers, on the welcome mat in her chocolate shop. Now he’s after some revenge of his own.

Jackson returned to his small hometown for one reason and one reason only…so he’s not sure how he’s ended up in a Santa suit in the middle of a chocolate shop, at the behest of its beautiful owner, instead of high-tailing it back to the city as fast as he can.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] How did you come up with the concept and the characters for the story?

[Darlene Fredette] I love the beauty and magic of the Christmas season and wanted to use that setting for the first book in the Redford Falls series. The theme is sweet and delicious so many of the characters in this story have names reflecting the Wintery/Christmas season.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] If you had a theme song, what would it be?

[Darlene Fredette] No one does Christmas songs like Elvis, and his ‘Santa Claus is Back in Town’ is definitely the theme song for this story.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] Name one thing you won’t leave home without.

[Darlene Fredette] My keys. You only lock yourself out of the house once, and then never do it again.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] What three things do you need in order to write?

[Darlene Fredette] My laptop, pen, and paper…and a story in my head always helps. Ooops, that’s four, lol.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] What is the last book that you read that knocked your socks off?

[Darlene Fredette] The Good Daughter by Jane Porter.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] If you had to pick one book that turned you on to reading, which would it be?

[Darlene Fredette] Penny Jordan’s series The Crightons.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] What do you like to do when you aren’t writing?

[Darlene Fredette] Spending time with my husband, daughter, and Yellow Lab. Reading, lounging in the yard, BBQs, and visits to the Valley.

[Manga Maniac Cafe] How can readers connect with you?

About the book:

It’s going to take more than a few pieces of chocolate to fill this Scrooge’s heart with Christmas cheer. Luckily Candice Cane has a whole shop full…

Candice Cane is not proud of the way she acted after her last encounter with Jackson Frost. Sure revenge was fun, but it’s left Jackson standing, angry and looking for answers, on the welcome mat in her chocolate shop. Now he’s after some revenge of his own.

Jackson returned to his small hometown for one reason and one reason only…so he’s not sure how he’s ended up in a Santa suit in the middle of a chocolate shop, at the behest of its beautiful owner, instead of high-tailing it back to the city as fast as he can.

Jackson wants nothing to do with his small town past, but Candice shows him what he didn’t even know he’d been missing. Can a bit of Christmas magic heal old wounds and offer up a future neither saw coming?
