K.J. Farnham is a superstar...plus a book giveaway

We're pleased to have K.J. Farnham visiting with us today. When Melissa A received her interview answers, she wrote to her immediately to tell her all the things they have in common. K.J. has a lot to laugh about during humor month, as well as her latest novel, A Case of Serendipity (which published today), to share with a lucky reader!

K. J. Farnham writes contemporary fiction for women and young adults. Her works include the Click Date Repeat series and Don’t Call Me Kit Kat. A former educator who grew up in the Milwaukee area, she now resides in western Wisconsin with her husband and three children. Visit K.J. at her website, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

Ruth Bateman is at her wit’s end. If Bucky’s Beans doesn’t stop spamming her phone with discount codes for frou-frou java concoctions, she’s going to flip. After multiple failed attempts to unsubscribe, Ruth takes to the company’s Facebook page to vent her frustration over the never-ending texts.

When attorney, Henry Mancuso, stumbles upon Ruth’s complaint, he has no idea that a simple Facebook scroll is going to change his life. Now, he has to get Ruth to agree to a class action lawsuit when she’s just looking for some peace on her mobile device—not a drawn-out case against a coffeehouse giant.

As Ruth and Henry battle the legal waters, a friendship full of fun and spontaneity blooms. But could something more be brewing between these two and this coffeehouse case?

Most recent thing you laughed about:
​I have three children: ages 13, 10 & 5. At least one of them makes me laugh every single day. They recently watched a popular movie together and have been quoting lines from it ever since. Today I was rolling with laughter when the youngest was practicing the "Bend and Snap" maneuver. Can you name the movie?​

Favorite funny meme:

Favorite sitcom:
​Pre-kids: Sex and the City
Post-kids: The Goldbergs

Favorite comedian:
​Jimmy Fallon and Ellen DeGeneres always make me laugh, and I miss Robin Williams. I'm also a bit embarrassed to admit that I have a hard time looking away when my kids watch Miranda Sings on YouTube.

Funniest song you've heard:
This is a tough one for me because I usually listen to broody coffeehouse music. But one song that recently made me laugh is the Miranda Sings rendition of "Call Me Maybe."

Which classic Saturday Night Live skit/character is your favorite?
​Sorry, but it's impossible for me to name just one.​ I grew up watching SNL!

Top Five off the top of my head:
​Toonces ​the Driving Cat
Mary Katherine Gallagher
Debbie Downer
Tom Hanks as Mr. Short-term Memory
The Spartan Cheerleaders (Will Ferrell!)

I also LOVED Deep Thoughts by Jack Handey.

Thanks to K.J. for visiting with us and sharing her book with our readers.

Gosh, I haven't watched Saturday Night Live since I was in high school. A do remember the clay guy Mr Bill was a funny part. At least I hope that was part of SNL and not another show before or after it.

I watched SNL years ago when it first started with John Belushi and those guys. I don't watch it anymore, but I do love seeing Alec Baldwin do Trump.

diannekc said...

I loved Toonces the Cat and Gilda Radner on SNL. I only watch it once in awhile, Alec Baldwin is funny as Trump.

Cresta McGowan said...
