I'm the author of THE MERYL STREEP MOVIE CLUB (2012, Simon & Schuster) and FINDING COLIN FIRTH, Simon & Schuster, 2013 (a spin-off of TMSMC). I live on the coast of Maine, the setting of the novels, with my teenaged son and our sweet shepherd mix (Flash) and our very comical lap cat, Cleo.

Of course, I'm a huge Meryl Streep fan, and I've been swooning over Colin Firth since I first saw him in the BBC version of Pride & Prejudice back in the mid 90s. (I'm also crazy about Then She Found Me.)

I'm not only a movie fan--I'm a huge reader. My favorite books range from childhood favorites such as Anne of Green Gables and Little Women (I always liked to think those March sisters were my own :) and current favorite authors include Elin H

Not an editor mistake--MY mistake. You wouldn't think I, one of the biggest Colin Firth fans and fans of the miniseries version of P&P would make such a mistake, but I did. When I was writing the novel, I watched Colin's P&P, which I've seen at least ten times over the past many years. Then I wanted to watch the Kiera Knightly version, which I'd never seen, so I did. And when I wrote the scene you note in my book, I Googled to get the wording right and copied it down--from the wrong film. Because I'd just seen the Kiera Knightly version, that wording was in my head and it sounded right to me, HOW I DON'T KNOW. It was the mistake of all mistakes and very embarrassing. I hope you were still able to enjoy the book. I feel terrible about it! Thanks so much for asking. -MM(less)

“People will come and go from your life for all kinds of acceptable and crappy reasons…So you’ve got to be your own best friend, know who you are, and never let anyone tell you you’re something you know you’re not.”
