In the seventh of a series of interviews with authors from Smut by the Sea Volume 3, I’d like to welcome Demelza Hart. Take it away, Demelza…
If you could go on holiday to any beach in the world where would you go?
I live in the south west of England near some amazing beaches, and know that if I were away from them, I’d want to go back. But if I were to go abroad, I’d probably choose the Florida west coast as I had some very happy times there as a child.
What’s your favourite beach memory?
Just being on a beach creates a memorable experience. Every time I visit with my family it’s wonderful, but I have special memories of beachside meals and watching the sun set over the ocean. Looking out to sea always puts things in perspective. Although I only live a few minutes’ drive from the coast, I don’t live directly on it, but we once hired a cottage right beside the sea near Land’s End, and listening to the constant low roar of the Atlantic as I went to sleep at night was really special.
