Author Interview with Jo Huddleston and #Giveaway!

Today we welcome back to Stitches Thru Time, Jo Huddleston.

Jo is a multi-published author of books, articles, and short stories. Novels in her West Virginia Mountains Series and her Caney Creek Series are sweet Southern historical romances. She is a member of ACFW, the Literary Hall of Fame at Lincoln Memorial University (TN), and holds a M.Ed. degree from Mississippi State University. Learn more at where you can sign up for Jo’s mailing list, connect with her on social media, and read her blogs.

Welcome, Jo! What do you enjoy doing for relaxation?

My favorite relaxation used to be reading. One disadvantage of being a writer is that I don’t have as much time to read. I used to read 60 or more books a year. Last year I read 19. I also enjoy spending time at the beach, and time with my children and grandchildren.

What is your favorite Bible verse?

“Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.” Philippians 4:8, NIV
Jo's Dream Writing Space

Do you have a dedicated place to write, or a nook or corner of a room, or the kitchen table?

Yes, I have a heavy executive-style desk in the corner of a bedroom. On it I have a laptop, printer, lamp and organized stacks of papers. I used this desk while in high school.

Please tell us a little about your novel, Trust Me.

West Virginia, 1960

A mine owner. An elegant lady.

Seductive voices that scoff at trust.

Loreen Fletcher has suffered heartbreak. She resolves never to trust a man again. She has earned a respected position with no help from anyone, especially not from a man. At thirty-six, Loreen knows loving brings inevitable misery, and she won’t pick at that scab again.

Claude Capshaw’s life has taken another detour. Things that drove him no longer motivate him. Nothing fulfills him anymore—except that elegant lady at West Virginia University. Why won’t she trust him when he tells her he’ll never betray her?
