Author Spotlight: Marci Nault
Marci- who are some of your favorite authors?
Anne Patchett, Jodi Picoult, John Grisham, Caroline Leavitt, Leslie Lehr, Mary Alice Monroe, Meg Donohue, Lisa Genova.
What book or books will you always make room for on your book shelf?
Chocolat and The Girl With No Shadow, Bel Canto, Stephen King’s On Writing, The Power of Now
Are you a hardback, paperback or e-book kind of reader?
I fought the e-reader for a long time, until my agent gave me one for Christmas. I still love paperback books. Hardcovers for me are too heavy to read in bed or to carry on planes and I travel quite a bit. I love my e-reader for travel. I can be a world away from home and have a complete library at the touch of a button.
Do you have any #literaryconfessions?
I’m so afraid to say this, but I didn’t like Wuthering Heights or Ayn Rand. I’ve been told to give Wuthering Heights another look, and maybe I will someday.
Do you have a #literarycrush?
I have to admit that I have a crush on Tommy from my own novel, The Lake House. Boy do I wish he were real!
What books are you looking forward to reading in 2013?
Becoming a published author I’ve been able to meet so many great authors and my to-be-read is piling up. I’ve started about three books that I’m really enjoying, but I realize I want the time to sink in, so I’ve put them aside until I can take a vacation. Love, Water, Memory, This is Tomorrow, What a Mother Knows.
What is the best book you have read (so far) in 2013?
Fully completed (because the books I’ve mentioned above are all wonderful) – The Language of Flowers.
Some say books go best with chocolate- what do you think books go hand in hand with? Chocolate? Wine? Dessert?
I love a great book and a cappuccino from a small local coffee shop. A glass of wine on a Sunday afternoon while sitting in a vineyard is a favorite. I live surrounded by wine country so I can do this. I spent many hours in Piazza Signora in Florence eating truffles and reading, so good chocolate is always a choice. Good literature and something yummy is just what makes life decadent!
