Welcome to Desert Island Authors. This week we're chatting to Carrie Elks
Now you are stranded on a desert island, which of your book heroes will you bring with you & why?
I’d bring Richard from Fix You. He’s great in a crisis, plus he is VERY wealthy so should be able to fund our escape. PLUS he’s hot. So there’s that.
You can only bring one book with you. What one would you stick in your suitcase?
Lord of the Rings. I haven’t read it since I was a kid, but I reckon it will keep me busy!
You can only eat one meal for the rest of your stay. What will it be?
Anything chocolate. Seriously. I think I’ll probably sink without it.
You can listen to one album during your stay. Which one will you choose?
Ed Sheeran’s divide album. Sooo good!
You can only watch one movie or TV show while you're shipwrecked. What will be playing on a loop on your screen forever?
I love old movies, and I’m a huge Jimmy Stewart fan, so maybe The Philadelphia Story. It’s black and white perfection!
You can bring 3 bonus items. What are they & how will they help?
A never ending bottle of wine, my iphone and my husband. Not necessarily in that order!
Rescue is in sight! If you could have anybody arrive to save you in their boat / helicopter / paddleboat for two who will it be?
Ooh, now there’s a question. I would say my husband but he’s already here, right? Though if Richard is here too, there could be some problems. So maybe Fix You's heroine, Hanna, could come to save us. Let’s even up the numbers!
And don't forget to check out her fabulous book,
From the moment Hanna Vincent meets Richard Larsen at a glamorous London party, they are drawn to each other despite their differences. He's the handsome son of a wealthy New York family, she's the poor black sheep with a contagious love of life. On paper, they are complete opposites.
As she becomes the nanny to his younger sister, the attraction between them grows, though the differences between them are too much to overcome. Until the day they meet in New York and everything changes. After a passionate night together, they try to make things work, but neither of them can imagine the ways their love will be challenged.
Then one day, Hanna walks into Richard’s office and reveals an explosive secret. One that rocks the foundations of his world. Richard must decide if he can ever forgive her, and they both need to choose whether to take a risk on happiness, or if their broken love is beyond repair.
