Stranded...with Christine Nolfi

Please welcome Christine Nolfi, author of Sweet Lake as she tackles our Desert Island Interview!

About Christine:

Some writers are gifted with an unusual life and I’m certainly one of those. I’ve lived in Ohio, Virginia, California, Utah and now South Carolina. In college I was featured on the front page of the Houston Post for a lark that erased all my debt. I met my four adopted children for the first time in the sweltering heat of the tropics. I helped build several companies and was lucky enough to earn a living doing what I love best–writing–in a PR firm I owned.

In 2004 I made the wisest and most irrational decision of my life–I began writing fiction full-time. All those years of hard work pay off daily in sweet notes and comments by readers. Please continue the mail, tweets and comments on FaceBook, GoodReads and other sites. I cherish your support and love chatting with readers.

Christine Nolfi Stranded on a Desert Island

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

Sweet Lake, my February release. Since it is the first book in my new series, many of the characters I’ll feature in upcoming books were mentioned in the pages. I’m sure I’d use the time alone on the island to finish work on the third book in the series.

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

Lots of paper and purple gel pens. I could survive island life without electricity or my iMac, but I’d go nuts if I didn’t have paper to write!

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

Well, if we’re being practical…may I have my computer and Internet access? I love chatting with readers on Facebook, Goodreads and Twitter.

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

Career novelists learn to cherish the solitude needed to bring a cast of characters to life. In fact, we’re never alone. Once we’re deep into the writing of a new novel, we’re happily ensconced with compelling new friends!

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

My husband, absolutely. Barry would have me laughing on a daily basis, and he’d work out the kinks of making fire and catching fish for dinner.

What modern technology would you miss the most?

Internet access. During the development of a novel, I FaceTime with my editor, share email with my agent—and let’s not forget all those readers with whom I chat on a daily basis. Plus I’d miss the Facebook parties, which allow me to interact with readers from around the world.

What food or beverage would you miss the most?

A dirty martini, like they make at my favorite Charleston, South Carolina restaurant.

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

I’d probably wish for rescue at the six-month mark. By then I would’ve completed the third Sweet Lake series novel, and run through my writing supplies!

What is the first thing you would do when rescued?

Take a long, hot bath. With a dirty martini for company.

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

“Guess what? I’ve finished another Sweet Lake book, and my publisher has set the release date!”

Sweet Lake

Linnie Wayfair knows just how many people are counting on her. But knowing doesn’t make doing any easier.

Everyone in Sweet Lake, Ohio, wants her to muster all her business sense and return the Wayfair Inn to its former glory. Her parents hope she’ll forgive her scoundrel of a brother and reconcile the family. The eccentric Sweet Lake Sirens want her to open the inn—and her heart—to new possibilities. And her hilarious lifelong friends Jada and Cat are dropping none-too-subtle hints for her to ignite a romance with Daniel Kettering, the sexy attorney who’s been pining for her for years…

Now a shocking turn of events will open old wounds and upend the world Linnie has carefully built. She has to make changes quickly—and the results, though not entirely what she expected, might be what she’s been yearning for all along.
