Wendy Lou Jones Stranded on a Desert Island

Please welcome Wendy Lou Jones, author of By My Side, as she tackles our Desert Island Interview!

About Wendy:

My name is Wendy Lou Jones. I was born and raised in West Sussex, England and moved to Birmingham to study Medicine at University, where I was lucky enough to meet my husband. We now live in a little village in Herefordshire with our two grubby boys. I discovered a love of writing not long after my youngest son started school. And if you were to ask me what it was that made me make the switch, I’d tell you quite simply, that it started with a dream.

Wendy Lou Jones Stranded on a Desert Island

If you could only have one book with you, what would it be? 

I would take The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, as I know I can read that over and over again and it always makes me smile.

What one luxury item would you want to be stranded with?

A good pillow. I’m guessing a king size pocket sprung mattress and heat pad are out of the question here?

What is the one practical item you would want to have with you to use?

A machete: chopping wood; making shelter; foraging for food; protection.

Would you enjoy the solitude, even briefly, or would it drive you crazy?

I’m not saying I wouldn’t go a bit Shirley Valentine, talking to the trees and such, but I would love a bit of peace and quiet. Thanks.

If you could be stranded with one other person, who would you want it to be?

Ooooh, tricky. Bear Grylls or eye candy??? Okay, I’m going to go for… Hugh Jackman. Now I would normally pick Richard Armitage here, but I’ve never seen him in a particularly physical role and I think that would be an advantage, and who knows what Bear would get me eating?  *shivers*

What modern technology would you miss the most?

Probably my laptop. No writing!!!!!!!!!!!

What food or beverage would you miss the most?

Cheese. Imagine all these days/ weeks living off the land and sea, making love in the moon light and foraging for food. I’ll be skinny as a rake, but I’d be missing some good old fashioned cheddar cheese. Cheese and bread. A cheese sandwich. Is it lunchtime yet?

How many days do you think you would cope without rescue? 

Depends. If there was plentiful fruit and vege on this island and a decent man to share it with… I’ll send you a postcard!  Oh, seriously? Tops of a week. I’m no good at this fresh fruit and vege and roughing it malarky. I don’t even like camping much!

What is the first thing you would do when rescued?

Slip my wedding ring back on!

What would be your first Tweet or Facebook update upon your return?

Hey guys, I’ve got a waist!

By My Side

Betrayed by her boyfriend and best friend, Lena is left empty; trapped under a weight of guilt and loneliness. Then, at her lowest point and when she needs it most, a mysterious stranger comes into her life with a tale of friendship, family, and finding love in the most unexpected of places…

Katy Heath is definitely not thinking of love when she comes across consultant, Adam Elliott, berating some poor patient on the ward one day. In fact it is Dr Peter Florin who quickly has everyone’s hearts aflutter with his easy smiles and practised charm.

Yet Katy comes to realise that there’s more to Adam than his determination to push everyone away and it’s not long before she finds herself longing to reach out to touch the man within, healing the pain of his past.
As Lena is drawn into Katy’s story, she begins to learn – just as Katy does- that the course of true love never did run smooth.
