Q&A with Tess Thompson

What was the spark or initial idea that started your book?

I've always been fascinated by the idea of searching for your long lost love, having known several people who reconnected with their first loves later in life. What happens when you find them? Are the feelings the same as when you saw them last? Is there a second chance for happiness?

What was your favorite part of writing this book?


I loved writing every part of this book! It's the first time I've written the narrative in first person and I enjoyed it immensely because I could really get inside Blythe's head and convey her most intimate thoughts along with the action of the story.

What is your favorite line from your book?


My favorite line is Blythe's description of her white minivan, nicknamed the "White Whale". In real life I have a white minivan, which I also affectionately refer to as the "White Whale".

"The White Whale was like me—over one hundred thousand miles on it and still going strong, despite a messy interior and a dent or two."

What movie or television show would you say is most like your book in tone, topic, and/or characters?

This is a hard question! I would have to say it's tone is like "Love Actually", in that it's about several different kinds of love.

If your book was made into a movie and you got to design the movie poster, what would the tagline say?

"Blue Midnight" How far would you go to find you long lost love?



Blurb

“If you change your mind, here’s this.” Finn Lanigan kissed a young Blythe Heywood one last time under an Idaho star-scattered sky. Then she left, returning to her fiancĂ© and the wedding she’d committed to. It was the last kiss that ever weakened her knees, the last sky she noticed for over a dozen years.

Thirteen years later, newly divorced, she finds the forgotten slip of paper in the back of drawer.

Finn Lanigan - 208-555-2004

She’d tossed it years before, hadn’t she? Surely she had, in one of the moments that first year of marriage when her loyalty was resolute. Apparently not. Here it lived. Her temptation. Her road not taken.
Facing three weeks without her young daughters, she sets out to find the man she left behind so long ago. With only the name of the small town where he once lived, Peregrine, Idaho, and the memory of their last kiss under a starry sky, she heads across the Pacific Northwest in search of him.

What she finds in the foothills of Blue Mountain and the tiny town of Peregrine changes her life forever. But it is her destiny and destinies cannot be denied.

The first book of the Lanigan Clan Collection, laced with Thompson’s complex and diverse characters, “Blue Midnight” is a mature love story about second chances, family and the complexities of trust and vulnerability after betrayal.
