photoInterview with the heroine from Sweet Olive by Judy Christie:

1. Camille Gardner, tell me the most interesting thing about you. “I’ve wound up in Samford, Louisiana, the place I’d least rather be.”

2.  What do you do for fun? “I love folk art–primitive art that shows the hearts and everyday lives of real people. It’s so fun and genuine.”

3.  What do you put off doing because you dread it? “Confronting my Uncle Scott, who has controlled my life since I was a teenager.”

4.  What are you afraid of most in life? “Squandering my life. I want to have a happy and useful life.”

5.  What do you want out of life? “A true home with someone I love, a place to put down roots.”

6.  What is the most important thing to you? “Being a person of integrity in a world where things aren’t always black and white–and taking care of my mother, who I love so much.”

7.  Do you read? If so, what is your favorite type of book to read? “I definitely read. I particularly like art books and magazines–and Southern fiction, of course.”

8.  If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be? “I’d love to be an artist–to be able to draw and paint.”

9.  Do you have a pet? If so, what is it and why that pet? “Not yet but I hope to. I’ve traveled as an oil-and-gas ‘landman’ and have not been home enough to have a pet.”

10. If you could travel back in time, where would you go and why? “To the summer I was fifteen so I could get to know my father better–and to make it a point to meet Marsh Cameron when he was in high school.”
