WOULD-BE WITCH Reader Guide
1.) Tammy Jo’s closest family members are gone, leaving her with only the acerbic Edie for occasional familial support. How do you think this separation affects 23-year-old Tammy Jo? Have you ever been away from your home and those you know? Did it affect your behavior?
2.) Despite their often tumultuous relationship, Tammy Jo continues to be involved with her ex-husband, Zach Sutton. Is this understandable?
3.) The fictional town of Duvall, Texas plays a large role in the story. Is this a place you would want to live? Discuss the pros and cons of growing up/living in a small town.
4.) Was Tammy Jo’s voice authentically Southern? What do you think it is about the South that makes it a frequent and favorite choice for paranormal authors. (Anne Rice’s New Orleans, LA, Charlaine Harris’s Bon Temps, LA, Kimberly Frost’s Duvall, TX etc.) What Southern settings are your favorites for paranormal novels? Would Birmingham, AL make a good setting for one—why or why not?
5.) Discuss the interactions between Lennox and Bryn Lyons. Given Lennox’s actions and attitudes, do you feel that Tammy should continue to develop a relationship with the Lyons family?
6.) What question would you like to ask the author about the creation of this novel/series?
I will be visiting with the book club tomorrow night (via speaker phone) and can't wait to hear the discussion!
Thanks again to these ladies for choosing to read WOULD-BE WITCH and for inviting me to their club.
