Christmas Special with Debbie Macomber & Viola Shipman

Tune in for a festive show as we welcome two of the F&F community’s most beloved authors — Debbie Macomber & Viola Shipman — for our season finale and our holiday special.

We are always happy to spend time with our dear friend, the #1 New York Times bestselling author Debbie Macomber who is one of today’s most popular writers with more than 200 million copies of her books in print worldwide and who has spent over 1,000 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list. The crew talks with Debbie all about her latest Christmas novel (her 25th!), THE CHRISTMAS SPIRIT, as well as DEBBIE MACOMBER’S HOLLY JOLLY CHRISTMAS COLORING BOOK, her recent travels, and how she called off her retirement from writing.

We are also joined by our good pal, USA Today and internationally bestselling author Wade Rouse, who is a real fan favorite among our F&F members. Wade chose his grandmother’s name, Viola Shipman, as a pen name to honor the woman whose heirlooms and family stories inspire his fiction. We speak with him about his latest novel, A WISH FOR WINTER, how his homes near Lake Michigan and in Palm Springs affect his writing life, his inspirations for his work, and what’s on tap for next year.

The crew also engages in a fun holiday-themed lightning round where they talk about favorite Christmas movies, songs, decorations, and traditions.Take a break from the hustle bustle, pour yourself a festive holiday cocktail, and join us for warm, bookish chat and lots of laughs on our last show of the season!
