Here she is, the indomitable and always interesting, Lecia Cornwall:
1. Where is the most beautiful/romantic place you’ve ever been? The most beautiful, romantic place I’ve ever been: Malmaison, Empress Josephine’s home outside Paris. There were no tourists the day we were there, just us, walking through her empty rooms, standing in the bedroom where she died. They say Napoleon visited Malmaison for relaxation while he was Emperor, but couldn’t bear to go there after Josephine’s death. It has such a sad, romantic atmosphere of love and regret.
2. Do you celebrate when you finish a book and what you do? I cry. I cry when I type or read the last line, even after I proofread it. I’m just sentimental, grateful and glad to reach the Happy Ever After.
3. If you weren’t writing what job would you have? There are several. Teacher, art conservator, artist, actor…
4. What is the most embarrassing song on your iPod? So many! And what a person keeps on their iPod is such a personal thing, with all the songs you bellow in the shower and while driving–they represent the quirks and memories from your life. Most embarrassing? Either Jonathan Colton’s “Re: Eat Your Brains” or “Midnight at The Oasis” by Maria Muldaur.
5. If you were going to an island for a long time, name 5 things you would bring. Five people: one to cook, one to clean up, one to build one of those fantasy treehouse mansions, one to build a boat and go for help, and my dog. Books, too. And the dog’s ball…
EB: Smartest answer I have ever seen to that question! LOL!
