I thought it might be a bit of fun to “interview” the characters from my novels! Just a little twist to learn some “behind the scenes” info on them. Today I’m going to “talk” to Kate Palmer, our heroine from “Camping in High Heels”.
Me: Hi Kate! I’m so glad that you could carve out a bit of time for me for a chat. I know you’re on your way to Niagara Falls.
Kate: No problem! Actually, I just stopped for the evening and set up the motor home at the campground so this is good timing.
Me: Are you truly enjoying your camping experience or are you ready to go back to staying in 5 Star hotels?
Kate: Honestly, I love staying in “Luna”, my nickname for the motor home. Much better than what I originally called my camper when I first started my trip.
Me: Didn’t you use the name “Monster”?
Kate (laughing): I sure did! I swear that’s what it felt like to me! Driving those first weeks was such a challenge. I still have my moments but things are so much better now. As for staying in hotels, I’ll admit that I miss them. I mean, spa treatments and fine dining – seriously? But there is something to be said for grilling food at your campsite too. Taking a walk in the fresh air. Watching the wildlife as long as it doesn’t get too close.
Me: You know there are many people who say you are “glamping”. That you aren’t a true camper since you aren’t staying in a tent or even better, outside under the stars.
Kate: Well, as far as I’m concerned this is camping. And I have stayed in a tent a few times!
Me: That’s right. Brandon has a tent doesn’t he?
Kate: Um, let’s change the subject!
Me: Ok, so what is your favorite place you visited so far on your trip?
Kate: That’s hard! I’ve seen so many things. Been to places that I had only heard of and honestly didn’t think I would ever visit. I was so focused on international travel. But now that I’ve camped around half the United States, there is so much to see in our own backyard. I could probably live in this camper for years and never see everything I want.
Me: But name just one favorite place.
Kate: Hmmmm. Well, this is going to sound crazy but probably Forks, WA.
Kate: Well, I know I have been to some awesome places and seen sights that seemed like I was looking at a postcard but Forks is a bit special. First I’m a big “Twilight” fan. Please don’t laugh! So I had to visit Forks but it’s also the place that really solidified my relationship with Brandon. It was so sweet what he did for me.
Me: You mean him meeting you at the beach?
Kate: Yeah. It was so romantic but I don’t want to give too much away if your readers haven’t read the books yet but I still can’t get that evening out of my mind.
Me: You’re probably right. Will just leave it right there but I will be getting back in touch with you for another interview if that’s alright with you, ok?
Kate: I would love that!
Me: Have fun on your adventure!
Kate: Will do!
This gives you just the tiniest glimpse of Kate Palmer from the “Camping in High Heels” series. She might be a bit pampered but she is learning to make her way in the RV and camping world, one adventure at a time.
Hope you enjoyed our “interview”!
