In The RAC Magazine’s Romance… or Not Issue #3, we have the privilege of interviewing Mette Barfelt, romance author.
Mette Barfelt is a Scandinavian author. After 16 years working for travel agencies and airlines, she educated in marketing and started writing books. She has traveled extensively throughout the world and visited numerous countries. Her passion for travels and cruises resulted in the non-fiction cruise guide “Alt du bør vite om cruise,” published by Aschehoug Publishing House in Norway. She’s now writing contemporary romances – sweet small town love stories with a dash of suspense. The books in the series are stand-alones. She lives with her husband and her two teens, outside Oslo, Norway.
Here is one sample question from our interview:
Please tell us more about your sweet romance books. Is the small town in the books based on a real town?
Yes and no. Solvik is part fictitious, part real. Although the town itself and its citizens are fictitious, everything else such as the surrounding area, distances, geography, nature, and weather are real. The idyllic Solvik is only half an hour’s drive southeast of Oslo, but the contrast to the noisy capital is huge. I picture Solvik situated by the sea, a mere ten-minute walk from where I live, surrounded by woods, farms, and fields in the relaxing countryside.
