with Carol Mason

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

Rodale’s Synonym Finder. Without it, I probably couldn’t write. And if I couldn’t write, I’d probably happily lie down at the shoreline and pray to be eaten by a shark.

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

My wonderful fiery red Mulberry handbag. You’d be shocked how much pleasure I get from staring at it, touching it, smelling it, rubbing the leather against my cheek. And then… repeat. This could keep me entertained for days! 

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

A pair of tweezers. I might be cast away, but I don’t want to end up looking like Tom Hanks.

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

I would love the solitude. I’m a loner more than a people person, though a friendly sociable loner at that! But then when meal time rolls around it’s always nice to have company for dinner. Or, in this case, to catch dinner.

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

My husband. He’s the person I most enjoy talking to, and he’s always said he would take the bullet for me, so I figure this could come in handy. If he wasn’t available then Kyle Chandler. In fact, let’s think about that for a moment…

6. What modern technology would you miss the most?

My electric toothbrush.

7. What food or beverage would you miss the most?

A cup of tea. A really good homemade steak pie with hot water pastry. 

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

Thirty days. Not a day more. Not a day less.

9. What is the first thing you would do when rescued?

Hit the bar. 

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

A photo of my cat wearing a pirate patch. 

After You Left

You want to know what the worst thing is? It’s not the embarrassment, or the looks on people’s faces when I tell them what happened. It isn’t the pain of him not being there—loneliness is manageable. The worst thing is not knowing why.

When Justin walks out on Alice on their honeymoon, with no explanation apart from a cryptic note, Alice is left alone and bewildered, her life in pieces.

Then she meets Evelyn, a visitor to the gallery where she works. It’s a seemingly chance encounter, but Alice gradually learns that Evelyn has motives, and a heartbreaking story, of her own. And that story has haunting parallels with Alice’s life.

As Alice delves into the mystery of why Justin left her, the questions are obvious. But the answers may lie in the most unlikely of places…
