Episode 509 | Jacquelyn Middleton Interview

Today’s author interview guest is Jacquelyn Middleton, author of Until The Last Star Fades.


Touching, heartfelt, and passionate, ‘Until the Last Star Fades’ is a must-read for hopeful romantics, devoted daughters, and the moms they cherish.


In her senior year at NYU, Riley Hope appears to be on top of the world. With a loving mother who makes Lorelai Gilmore look like a parenting slacker, ride-or-die friends, and a long-time boyfriend destined for the National Hockey League, she puts on a smile for the world. But behind it, Riley’s drowning. Racked with fears for the future, she battles to stay afloat amid life in the shadows of a heartbreaking illness.

And then, Ben Fagan comes crashing into her life. Twenty-three-years-old, British, and alone in the Big Apple after a disastrous pilot season in LA, the struggling actor is looking for an escape: booze, mischief, sex—minimum commitment, maximum fun—anything to avoid returning across the pond.

As they form an unlikely bond, Riley keeps her reality from Ben so that he remains a happy refuge. But how long can she hold back the truth…and is Ben keeping his own secrets, too?

From the award-winning author of ‘London Belongs to Me’ and ‘London, Can You Wait?’, comes a bittersweet story about love, loss, sacrifice, and the life-changing decisions we make.

Jacquelyn Middleton is the award-winning author of LONDON BELONGS TO ME, LONDON, CAN YOU WAIT? and the forthcoming UNTIL THE LAST STAR FADES.

LONDON BELONGS TO ME (a contemporary coming-of-age story) won an honourable mention in the mainstream/literary fiction category of the 25th Annual Writer’s Digest Self-Published Book Awards, and LONDON, CAN YOU WAIT? (a contemporary romance) captured the GOLD prize in the ROMANCE category of the 2018 Independent Publisher Book Awards.

Jacquelyn is also a national award-winning freelance writer with articles published by several of the most popular magazines, newspapers, and websites in North America including USA Today, Canadian Living, Best Health, National Geographic Travel, Psychology Today, The Toronto Star, Reader’s Digest, Chatelaine, Today’s Parent, and Flare.

She previously worked in television broadcasting and lives in Toronto with her British husband, however, she loves London a little too much having visited over thirty times. She spends much of her time there, walking in the footsteps of her characters, hanging out with friends and family, going to plays every single evening (and sometimes twice a day when there’s a matinee), and soaking up the atmosphere in her favourite neighbourhoods, which feature in LONDON BELONGS TO ME and LONDON, CAN YOU WAIT?.
