SO excited to have the fabulously talented Jaime Jo Wright here today to talk about her new suspense novel The Premonition at Withers Farm & to share some little-known facts about herself. When I think back over the books I’ve read in the last several years, her books are all at the top of my list. If I could give them all 10 stars, I would.

The voices of the past cannot stay silent forever.
In 1910 Michigan, Perliett Van Hilton is a self-proclaimed rural healer, leaving the local doctor convinced she practices quackery. It doesn’t help that her mother is a spiritualist who regularly offers her services to connect the living with their dearly departed. But when Perliett is targeted by a superstitious killer, she must rely on both the local doctor and an intriguing newcomer for assistance.
In the present day, Molly Wasziak’s life has not gone the way she dreamed. Facing depression after several miscarriages, Molly is adapting to her husband’s purchase of a peculiar old farm. A search for a family tree pulls Molly deep into a century-old murder case and a web of deception, all made more mysterious by the disturbing shadows and sounds inside the farmhouse.
Perliett fights for her life, and Molly seeks renewed purpose for hers as she uncovers the records of the dead. Will their voices be heard, or will time forever silence their truths?
“A tale of intoxicating menace, eerie elegance, and satisfying suspense.”—BOOKLIST starred review of The Souls of Lost Lake
little-known facts about me
by Jaime Jo Wright, author of The Premonition at Withers Farm
Okay, so I think it’s fun to read little known facts about authors I love, so I figured why not share some of my own about me. If you laugh at me, it’s okay. Really, I laugh at me too. It’s how I function in life. (Or don’t function—but that’s another interview.)
Don’t kill the antelope! When I was a child, my parents could not let me watch nature documentaries. It wasn’t that they had any issues with the documentaries, it was simply because I was an emotional wreck by the end of them. Always, ALWAYS, there was a pack of hyenas or a skinny cheetah chasing after the antelope and always, ALWAYS, it ate the baby or the mother, and after that I was done. Trashed. Wrecked. Sobbing.
Never have I ever watched a horror movie until just this year, 2022. I finally watched the original Nightmare on Elm Street, and I found it to be . . . not scary. I will qualify this statement by saying I did see bits and pieces of Scream about years ago, but does that film even count as a horror movie? I think it’s more of a teen thriller, yes? Anyway, next on my list is Silence of the Lambs.
I went jack-rabbit hunting in New Mexico when I was twelve and successfully bested everyone else in the back of the pickup truck as we bumped and jolted across the desert in the middle of the night. It was only after we drove back to the ranch, and I was alone that I allowed the guilt of playing Elmer Fudd and shooting rabbits to consume me.
No, I have never been to a séance, played with tarot cards, or touched a Ouija board, nor have I had my fortune told, summoned a ghost, visited a medium, etc. Just wanted to clarify that I am a Jesus girl at heart, and regardless of the creepy factors, the little-known fact that I don’t dabble in those things for real probably should be a better-known fact than it is! LOL
I am not afraid to get dirty—like in the full sense of the word. I think being covered in mud after ATVing in a field, or slogging through muck, or falling in a pile of manure (done it) are quite a necessary part of being a full-on country girl. Which I am. Which is why I’m always in hoodies, rarely wear makeup, and have the world’s worst messy bun ever.
