Lindsey Kelk Stuck on a Desert Island

We thought we'd go in a different direction with our Author Interviews instead of the standard queries. So we came up with 10 Desert Island questions to put them to the test and find out a bit more about them. Let's see how Lindsey Kelk would fare.

First a bit about Lindsey: 

Lindsey Kelk has been writing since she was six, when she read all the books in her room and decided to write a new one. The Adventures of Tellina the Superhero Teddy Bear, was tragically never published. When she isn't writing, reading or watching more TV than is healthy, Lindsey likes to wear shoes, shop for shoes and judge the shoes of others. She has ghost written books for Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen (yes, she did get to meet them!) and also writes a successful beauty blog

If you could only have one book with you, what would it be? 
The Secret History by Donna Tartt. I’ve read it a million times already and haven’t got bored yet.

What one luxury item would you want to be stranded with?
Can I have an iPod with a never-ending battery? Please?

What is the one practical item you would want to have with you to use?
Um, are you all going to think I’m mental if I ask for a knife?

Would you enjoy the solitude, even briefly, or would it drive you crazy?
Right now, I would love it. I’m really happy in my own company actually. I miss living alone. I’m sure I’d go the full Tom Hanks in Castaway and start talking to a basketball eventually though. Might take a while. Especially if there isn’t a basketball. 

If you could be stranded with one other person, who would you want it to be?
Bill Murray. Ask me no questions, I’ll tell you no lies.

What modern technology would you miss the most?
I’m a Twitter-Whore so my BlackBerry would probably be the hardest thing to live without. 

What food or beverage would you miss the most?
At present, I’m at least fifty percent Lady Grey Tea. I think I’ve officially moved from ‘I quite like it’ to ‘I really, really have to have it’ so that might be a problem.

How many days do you think you would cope without rescue?
With Bill, the book, iPod and a knife? Longer than is mentally healthy. Like I said, I really, really like being on my own. 

What is the first thing you would do when rescued?
Shower. Then have a bath. Then another shower. 

What would be your first Tweet or Facebook update upon your return?
I’m back! Sorry…

Thanks to Lindsey for being the guinea pig for our desert island experiment that we hope will become a regular feature! Shoot us a comment to let us know what you think. Do you want to know who your favourite author wants to be stranded with or what luxury item they would want to have? Or would you prefer more traditional questions?
