Interviewed on Molly’s KissCast!

When I was nine years old, my mother took me to a modern art show. I don’t remember much about it other than a giant piece in the center of the room with bicycle wheels perched haphazardly all over what looked like a mound of clutter, but somewhere during my bewildered eyeing of the thing, a newscaster came over with a camera and mic and asked if I’d like to be interviewed about my thoughts on the display.

“You want to hear what I have to say?” I whispered.

I’d looked at my mom with huge eyes and a gaping mouth as she encouraged me to turn back and answer the gentleman’s questions, and while that interview was a short-lived, silly little thing, the honor of being asked what I thought about anything struck me as really damn special.

So, cut to many, many years later, when I was on Skype with the lovely Molly Moore of Molly’s Daily Kiss. I’ve been delighted to get to call Molly a friend for a little while now, because she’s as fantastic in her conversational charm as she is thoughtful and talented while writing or photographing for her many websites. Somewhere in our friendly conversation she asked if I might like to be on her new podcast, Molly’s KissCast.

As we were on Skype, I got to see my own face in the corner of the monitor as I dropped my jaw in the very same way 9-year-old me did at that distant art show. Because Molly—sweet darling dear I adore—wanted to hear not only what I thought about certain aspects of the business, but also just about me, my history, and what and why I like to write.

Needless to say, I was completely honored—and I still am. I was quite nervous at first, but in her easy, sweet manner, Molly ended up getting me giggling so hard through most of the conversation I should probably listen one more time to make sure I didn’t snort or something in public. 🙂 Heck, she even got me talking about my recent book, my circus past and how much of my real life makes its way into my fiction (dun dun dun), plus a few other reveals I hope you’ll join us to hear. Molly previously interviewed Jane Gilbert of Behind the Chintz Curtain, and I suspect she will have many more fabulous guests—she is such a charismatic, intelligent, and warm woman, being on the interviewee end of any of her podcasts is a treat no one will want to miss!

For now, I am so grateful to have been a part of Molly’s KissCast. Please click here to give the episode a listen.

XX,
Jade

  1. Jade, you were a joy to listen to. I particularly enjoyed the 19-year project low-down. (I have a few of those, too …) And as per my Twitter comment earlier, you DEFINITELY need to add Circus Performer to your C.V. Coolest occupation ever. Jane xxx PS – thank you for mentioning me in your post! 🙂

    • Jane, thank you so much! I’m glad you enjoyed the interview, and I will definitely consider adding Circus Performer (or at least Aerialist) to my C.V…can’t claim it as a job, but it was fun, for sure! Happy to mention you – your interview was delightful, too. And I hope your own 19-year projects aren’t still plaguing you! XX-Jade

  2. I am so glad you are pleased with how the podcast came out. I loved recording this with you, it was so much fun and who knew we would come up with a new swear….. the now infamous Fuck Button!

    • I am still so tickled you asked me, Molly, and I loved it too! You are such a sweetheart, I’m honored just to have been asked. And damn that Fuck Button swear I muttered! 🙂 XX-Jade
