Bloom with Tall Poppy Writers is happening now, with this week’s Tall Poppy host Susan Bishop Crispell. In celebration of Thanksgiving, the week’s theme will be all about being thankful and celebrating the things and people we love. There will be recipes, Thanksgiving traditions, giveaways (if you like books and pie, you don’t want to miss it!) as well as chats with New York Times best-selling author Sarah Addison Allen on Monday from 12-1 Eastern and with USA Today best-selling author Nancy Naigle on Friday evening from 6-7 Eastern.

Here’s a little bit about this week’s host, Susan:

Susan Bishop Crispell earned a BFA in creative writing from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington. Born and raised in the mountains of Tennessee, she now lives twenty minutes from the beach in North Carolina with her husband and their literary-named cat. She is very fond of pie and is always on the lookout for hints of magic in the real world. She is the author of The Secret Ingredient of Wishes (September 2016) and Dreaming in Chocolate (February 2018).
