A Quick Fire Q&A with Daniela Sacerdoti

We’re delighted to welcome author Daniela Sacerdoti to Team Bookends and what better way to get to know someone than with a quick fire Q&A.

Author of bestselling novel Watch Over Me, Daniela’s latest novel Keep Me Safe is the first in a gripping new series set on the remote, beautiful island of Seal in the west of Scotland. Out on the 6th April…why not pre order now?

If I had to go back in time and choose another career…

Well, I would go back to my first career – primary teaching.

My dream holiday destination…

Iceland, Japan and New Orleans (to pay homage to Anne Rice!)

If I were to be stranded on a desert island, my one luxury item would be…

A survival manual, I suppose.

My most memorable meal…

Tea and toast after each of my babies were born.

The last song I listened to… OR The first album I ever bought…

A collection of 80s hits to listen to on my brand new Walkman.

The book I’ve read the most times…

The Anne of Green Gables series by Lucy M. Montgormery.

My guilty pleasure…

Latin American soap operas!

The item I have more of than anything else…

Books.

The last time I went to the cinema…

I took my boys to see Pets.

The thing I could never give up…

Coffee. I think that without coffee I’d be perpetually asleep.

My choice of superpower…

Beaming myself places like in Star Trek. I would beam myself in Scotland a lot.

The book (by another author) that I wish I had written…

Oh, it has to be Harry Potter! J.K.Rowling is just wonderful.

If I could pick any actor/actress to play my latest lead character…

Catriona Balfe from Outlander would be an amazing Anna.

The best play I’ve seen…

Romeo and Juliet, in London, with Juliet Stevenson.

The one piece of advice I would give my teenage self…

Send your novel off to a publisher. Don’t keep in a drawer.
