Interview and a Giveaway with Christine Nolfi

First off thanks Christine for taking the time out to answer a few questions!


What was the inspiration behind Treasure Me?

Unlike every other novel I’ve written, Treasure Me was a bolt-out-of-the-blue experience. I awoke one morning with the image of a beautiful young thief dangling from a windowsill, trying to evade the man whose pocket she’d picked. That first scene arrived in a mad dash of typing—my critique partners couldn’t stop laughing when I read the first draft. As the novel progressed I enjoyed the challenge of making Birdie sympathetic to readers. Why any of us should care about a common thief becomes clearer once the reader understands Birdie’s past, and her infamous mother, Wish Kaminsky.
What's next for you?

Second Chance Grill will appear on Amazon in June. It’s a “prequel” of sorts to Treasure Me that depicts the love story of Dr. Mary Chance, the town’s doctor, and Anthony Perini, a single dad with a very precious daughter. Of course the feisty women of Liberty—including Theodora—will be featured. You’ll learn a little more about the “bad blood” between Theodora and Ethel Lynn. Their battle was “fur and feathers” in Treasure Me. In Second Chance Grill, they’re even wilder.
