Interview with Carly Grant, Author of Back To You

02 Mar 2021

What can you tell us about your new release, Back To You?

Back to You is a sweet second chance romance set in a beachy small town in Florida and is the start of my Turning Tides B&B series. Back in high school, Noah Davis broke Annie Taylor’s heart and she never understood why. Now, she’s come back to Crestpoint Beach, widowed at age 35 and unsure of her path forward. For recently divorced single dad Noah, losing Annie was the hardest thing he’s ever faced. Can they find a way to start over again?

What or who inspired you to become an author?

I’ve always been a big reader, but I can’t really point to any one influence when it comes to writing. I wrote this book because I wanted to tell the kind of sweet, feel-good, small-town romance story I personally love to read. Now, I have plans for an entire series!

What’s on your top 5 list for the best books you’ve ever read?

Since there’s only room for five, I’ll go with books that had an early impact on me in some way. So that would be: Charlotte’s Web by E.B. White; Little Women by Louisa May Alcott; Little House in the Big Woods by Laura Ingalls Wilder; And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie; and The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett

Say you’re the host of a literary talk show. Who would be your first guest? What would you want to ask?

Debbie Macomber would be my first guest. I would ask which of her series is her favorite to write.

What’s your favorite thing about writing?

I love coming up with stories and characters that not only make me happy when I’m writing them, but also make other people smile and feel hopeful as they turn the last page.

What is a typical day like for you?

I’m terrible with routines, but for me every good day starts with a cup of good, strong coffee and a few hours behind my keyboard working on a new book or story idea.

What scene from Back To You was your favorite to write?

There were many! I love writing all of the lighthearted scenes, but one of my favorite moments to write was when Annie and Noah both admit they want to be in each other’s life forever. I can’t say more than that because I don’t want to spoil it!

Do you have a motto, quote, or philosophy you live by?

In a world where you can be anything, be kind.
