    Christmas Lights and Halloween Scares with Author Roan Parrish

    Christmas Lights and Halloween Scares with Author Roan Parrish

    To kick off the holiday season, Jeff & Will welcome Roan Parrish. The conversation starts with Christmas and Roan's holiday romance "The Lights on Knockbridge Lane." The book, the third in the "Garnet Run" series, is historic in that it's the first time an m/m romance has been a part of a Harlequin series line. Roan talks about the romance between Adam and Wes, writing about pets that aren't cats and dogs, as well as writing her first ever child character.
    Shifting gears to Halloween, we discuss Roan's Audible Original "Strange Company." This collection of creepy short stories includes a mix of old and new stories perfect for the season. Roan shares her love of Halloween and scary things, as well as the experience of working with her girlfriend, Timmi Meskers, who composed the music for the production.

Excellent show

This is a good blend of recommendations and discussions with authors or others in the romance genre or podcast world. I look forward to listening to the episode each week.

Love to listen

Jeff and Will are so charming and I love their interviews. They ask interesting questions and their voices are so friendly that I could listen forever.

Happy Listening Walker ,

Wonderful, charming, funny podcast

Jeff and Will are enthusiastic and intelligent readers and writers of romance, so their interviews are clever, interesting, and always charming and fun to listen to. I learn about books I wouldn't have encountered otherwise, and I always come away from an episode having learned about a new book or author, or a new way of looking at the mm romance genre. They're witty and ebullient, and their love of the genre and each other and their community make this podcast a joy to listen to. Cannot more highly recommend.
