Laura Chapman

laura-chapmanLaura Chapman is the author of The Marrying Type, Hard Hats and Doormats and the Autumn and Tuck series, which appear in Merry & Bright and A Kind of Mad Courage. A native Nebraskan, she loves football, Netflix marathons, and her cats, Jane and Bingley. Until she fulfills her dream of landing a British husband or becoming a Disney princess, you can find her in a bar penning her next novel. She’s a fabulous read, check her out!

To Survive a Deserted Island:

  1. Some sort of Hunger Games-like contraption to purify water. While I’d prefer to demand a full supply of bottled water, who knows how long I’ll be stuck on this island.
  2. Sunscreen. I’m a delicate flower.
  3. Vodka. If TV has taught me anything it’s a medical supply and a coping mechanism.
  4. My iPhone with a solar charger. I’m in a codependent relationship with my iPhone, and I can’t live without her, I mean it. Aside from the entertainment value, I’ll need it to tell me what fruits and plants are edible and which ones will kill me.
  5. Michael Fassbender. I imagine even the iPhone won’t be entertaining after a while.

In My Purse at All Times:

  1. My iPhone. As I said, I need it.
  2. Makeup bag, which actually contains things like toothpaste, toothbrush, deodorant, etc. I never know when I’m going to end up in a meeting and might need to freshen up.
  3. A notebook and pen. While I jot down plenty of notes on my iPhone, I like to have this on hand in case I get inspired.
  4. Halls Sugar-Free throat lozenges.
  5. My Packers sunglasses.

In My Wardrobe:

  1. Scarves. They’re a great accessory to give an outfit an extra pop of flare Fall through Spring.
  2. Cardigans–particularly the boyfriend cut (which is a bit longer and covers my rear).
  3. Ballet flats. These are my go-to shoe year-round.
  4. Jeans.
  5. Undershirts. I like layering.

In My Library:

  1. Saving Grace by Julie Garwood. This is one of my favorite reads from when I discovered romance novels. I’ve re-read it once a year probably since I was 12.
  2. These Happy Golden Years by Laura Ingalls Wilder.
  3. The Complete Jane Austen Collection. It’s every book in one!
  4. Can You Keep a Secret? by Sophie Kinsella
  5. Carolina Moon by Nora Roberts

In My Pantry:

  1. Quinoa. This sounds like such a pretentious thing to have, but ever since I figured out how to cook it, I’m never without it.
  2. Hazelnut coffee. Miss Laura needs caffeine to keep her edge.
  3. Lentils–a vegetarian’s best friend.
  4. Wine–preferably Pinot Noir, Moscato, and Riesling. (You never know what you’ll be in the mood to drink.)
  5. Salmon-flavored treats for the kittens. These are particularly useful when I need an hour of peace to write.
