Here are four things I discovered about author Juliette Fay while trolling the Internet:
She once co-founded a childcare center for children of homeless families.
2. She isn’t a clothes horse except when it comes to pajamas. She likes soft and pretty sleepwear.
3. She once wrote a trunk novel about a couple stuck in an elevator and it was called the “Hyperventilating Pants-Wetter Society.”
4. She is afraid of live chickens.
She also has a brand-new novel coming out this week called “The Shortest Way Home,” and if you leave your email address in the comments, I will be delighted to pick an address at random and send you the advance copy. Must enter before Monday at noon.
You likely know Juliette from her novel “Shelter Me” which was a huge Target success, and she also has another novel, “Deep Down True.” Juliette has been blessed by the cover Gods; and her novel “The Shortest Way” is no exception. A German shepherd is looking longingly inside a lovely house, and I can’t stop admiring it.
The novel is about Sean Doran, who is coming home to Massachusetts, after having spend twenty years in third-world war zones and disaster areas. There he deals with a steely aunt, a dramatic sister and a quirky nephew.
The Library Journal gave “The Shortest Way Home” a starred review saying, ““Fay is one of the best authors of women’s fiction, and her novels are not to be missed.”
Sounds like a good one.
