Christmas Fun Time with Author Sarah Bennett

This year, for my Christmas feature, I've invited several authors and book bloggers for a fun Christmas Interview. My next guest is author Sarah Bennett:

Hi Sarah and welcome to Alba in Bookland. First of all, can you tell us a bit about yourself?
Hi! Firstly, let me thank you so much for inviting me to feature on your blog, I very much appreciate it. I’m a military spouse, writing full time from home. Home is wherever the RAF send us, currently Buckinghamshire, but we are hoping to find our forever home in 2018 so we have somewhere to finally put down some roots.

Your latest book, Christmas at Butterfly Cove, is your third book set in Butterfly Cove. Tell us a bit more about it.
The series focuses on three sisters. Each one is the main focus of a different book and Christmas at Butterfly Cove is about Nee, the youngest of the three. She’s an artist who’s hit rock bottom, both professionally and personally and the book follows her in the lead up to, and over the festive season as she tries to comes to terms with the chaos in her life.

Would you like to spend your own Christmas at Butterfly Cove?
Absolutely! I had so much fun creating the place, and it feels almost real to me now. My favourite thing about it is that each of the guest rooms are themed so you can stay in a cosy country cottage, the calming forest room, the bright sunny beach room or the opulent harem suite. I couldn’t just visit once though, I’d have to go back and try them all! The series revolves around family, and Mia, the eldest sister and owner of Butterfly House is a real nurturing spirit. I’d love to sit in front of the log fire with a cosy blanket on my knee and a plate of homemade mince pies. 

Actually, talking about where to spend Christmas. Would you rather spend it on a turquoise water beach with a cocktail in your hand or in the Polar circle surrounded by husky puppies? 
Both sound wonderful for different reasons. I think I’d go with the Polar adventure though as I absolutely love the snow and maybe I’d get lucky enough to see the Northern Lights.

Is there a movie or a book you always revisit during the holidays?
I’m a real sucker for a feelgood film, so I love the classics. Something that needs a hanky, but ends happily so things like It’s a Wonderful Life, or Little Women.

Do you cook during Christmas or let others cook for you? If you do, what's your star dish?
I’m more of the assistant cook than the main chef. Mum does all the hard stuff and I do the trimmings. My speciality (if you can call it that) is making tuna melts for Christmas Eve supper. It’s a quick and easy meal and not too heavy before the full blow-out of Christmas Day.

And finally, if you could spend Christmas with a fictional character, who would you pick?
Ooh, that’s a tough one. I’m not sure I’d enjoy the lack of modern conveniences, but I’d love to spend Christmas with Jo March and the other Little Women gathered in their cosy parlour and singing songs around the piano.

Thank you so much Sarah for stopping by and sharing some Christmas cheer with us!
