Author Interview - Leigh Fossan
Author I draw inspiration from: Nancy Thayer and Nina George
Favorite place to read a book: On my balcony in Colorado overlooking the river, with a cup of coffee in hand
Book character I’d like to be stuck in an elevator with: Andi from Painting Blue Water - she's a hoot. (And she'd probably have mini mimosas in her purse to tide us over...)
The moment I knew I wanted to become an author: In the summer of 2016, I was visiting Nantucket with my husband and daughter. We were sitting outside our rented rose-covered cottage, looking out over the ocean. The idea for Painting Blue Water crept into my head as we talked about life and art, and I didn't let it go.
Hardback, paperback, ebook or audiobook: Hardbacks for my library, paperbacks for my purse
The last book I read: I'm just finishing How to Find Love in a Bookshop by Veronica Henry. It's completely splendid.
Pen & paper or computer: Computer
Book character I think I’d be best friends with: I'd like to be friends with Monsieur Perdu in Nina George's The Little Paris Bookshop. He could prescribe books for me as we traveled around France on his floating library, meeting other colorful characters along the way...
If I wasn’t an author, I’d be an: Artist. But lucky for me, I get to do both! My paintings can be seen at www.lavfineart.com
Favorite decade in fashion history: Paris, 1920s
Place I’d most like to travel: I've been to Paris, but I want to see the rest of France
My signature drink: Red wine, always
Favorite artist: My husband, James Van Fossan (www.jamesvanfossan.com). And, Marc Chagall.
Number one on my bucket list: Write another novel, and another
