Q & A with Monica Albertson


From Peg Cochran’s Cranberry Cove Series

Favorite food

Anything with cranberries, of course!  Okay, cranberries aside, I’d have to go with lobster.  I had it once on a long weekend trip to Maine and it was love at first bite.  Sadly, it’s too expensive to buy here in the Midwest.


Favorite author

I was afraid you’d ask me that!  How can I pick just one?  Greg (he owns Book ‘Em in town) and I love discussing books and read a wide range of authors.  Certainly Agatha Christie would be up at the top.  I love the way she weaves her clues into the story and I love the characters.  It’s also fun to take a trip back in time.

 
Favorite hobby

There isn’t much time for hobbies when you work on a cranberry farm.  Of course I love to bake, but that’s part of my job.  And I love reading and make sure I have at least half an hour each night to curl up with a good book.  I am in a book club that Greg runs at Book ‘Em, which I really look forward to.  And someday I’d love to learn to knit even if I am all thumbs!


Pet Peeve

People who are late.  I can’t help it—my parents trained me to always be on time and there’s nothing worse than standing on a street corner or sitting at a table in a restaurant waiting for someone to show up.


Favorite thing about Cranberry Cove

The people!  I love the people here.  They’ve been so welcoming to me.  And they’re far more diverse than you’d expect in a small town.


Plans for the future

I plan on staying here at Sassamanash Farm.  I’d like to do some traveling, but this place has gotten under my skin and has become home.  Also, I think there are some big plans for me in Cranberry Cove book number four, but the author refuses to tell me what they are.

  1. Great cover. Like Monica I need to read at least a half hour at night and I love cranberries. We have a lot of bogs in the Plymouth/Carver area. Thanks for the opportunity to continue with this series.

  3. Cranberry orange bread ----I never met a loaf I did not like. I am a reader who takes whatever time I can find to read. I always have a book or my kindle with me. And I love the cover of Dead and Berried.

  5. My favorite food would have to be seafood. I love pretty much all seafood (shrimp, salmon, clams, scallops, crab). For dessert it would have to be fudge. There are so many different ways you can make fudge (and they're all delicious!) acate9(at)utk(dot)edu
