EXCLUSIVE: Nicholas Sparks Talks ‘Safe Haven’

EXCLUSIVE: Nicholas Sparks Talks ‘Safe Haven’

Since 1996, Nicholas Sparks has become a publishing sensation, authoring 16 widely-successful romance novels (and one non-fiction book), eight of which have been adapted into movies, including hits such as A Walk to Remember, The Notebook, Dear John, and last year's The Lucky One. The latest of those adaptations is director Lasse Hallström's Safe Haven, opening in theaters, fittingly, on Valentine's Day. However, fans looking for another typical Nicholas Sparks-style romance will be in for a bit of a surprise with this hybrid of a tender love story and a gripping thriller.

The story centers on Katie (Julianne Hough), a troubled Boston woman who leaves town in a hurry, catching a southbound bus down the Atlantic coast before the police close in. Katie discovers the sleepy town of Southport, North Carolina, where she decides to make a fresh start, with the help of a local widower (Josh Duhamel) and a friendly neighbor (Cobie Smulders). However, just as Katie begins to forget her mysterious past, it comes back to haunt her. I was recently able to chat with Nicholas Sparks, who also serves as an executive producer on the adaptation, about his latest romantic tale, which is both set in and shot in the real-life town of Southport. Here's what he had to say.
