7 responses to “Author Interview | Talking about silk postcards with Susan Hughes, author of “A Kiss from France” a war drama centered around the munitionettes!

  1. Thank you Jorie for this opportunity and for asking such insightful questions. I wrote the first draft quite some time ago and it seemed as if I was almost back there, immersed in that world afresh again. I think I miss it!

    • You’re quite welcome, Ms Hughes!

      I loved having the chance to learn more about your research and how the story of A Kiss from France percolated inside your mind’s eye! I can understand how writing a story your heart’s attached too can be equally enjoyable to remember as much as it was for me to gain insight into it’s heart prior to reading it. It was a wonderful conversation!

    Thank you – I really enjoyed this interview. I have an embroidered WW1 postcard on my wall too – but I bought mine, it wasn’t among family possessions. I’ll keep an eye open for your book, Susan.

    • Thank you for dropping by and giving us this lovely feedback! I personally have never seen a silk postcard up close and in person – I do like to visit antique stories and emporiums as you can find boxes of vintage postcards, but never the silk varieties over here! I wonder if they can only be found in the UK and in Europe? Hmmm. How keen you have one of your wall! I don’t think it matters if it was purchased; it gives you a lot of joy having it and thus, it’s continuing to make people smile who admire it. Champion!

        • I am definitely going to keep a note with me to ask about these the next time I go antiquing! I love learning about these kinds of historical artifacts where people found a way to stay connected and to keep a semblance of normalcy even during times of war. It was a beautiful introduction to a chapter in the past I was not yet aware of Ms Hughes, and I am thankful our paths crossed so that I can add this chapter back into my own memories I’m creating for the war eras. Blessed.
