As we gear up for this amazing event, I’ll be bringing you author interviews so you can get to know the attending authors in more detail! There are lots and lots of authors for you to discover, not to mention, hundreds if not thousands of books! Why not grab a cuppa and sit back and relax! All while hearing more about our writers and their writing lives, inspirations – and maybe even a secret or two!
What is the first thing people should know about you?
I love to wander off when at signings – seeing and talking to folk is me all over. I cannot sit still for very long.
Tell me which genre or trope you are most well-known for writing.
Romantic Suspense, I love stories that have one hell of twist to them.
What is one thing people don’t know about you?
I am absolutely scared senseless of spiders.
Name a book you’ve written that you wish more people had read, and why.
I have only written one so it would have to be Twisted Fate, I loved writing this story.
What is your favourite book (not your own), and why?
Has to be Callie Hart’s Blood and Roses series. She writes amazing dark books with alpha arseholes, just up my street.
Is your desk/writing space tidy or messy?
Semi tidy, not that I seem to write at it lately though.
Who or what inspires you as a writer?
Life in general inspires me. TV and film are big influences and if I just happen to see something play out in reality that I think yes, I could write that into a scene. When I first started to write, Kelly Elliot and Callie Hart were my inspiration authors, I wanted to have stories just like theirs.
Are you an introvert or extrovert? Or something else…?
An introvert through and through. I live in my four walls and going out is a luxury lol. Once out though I am a proper chatterbox you cannot shut me up usually.
The literary world moves fast, but what’s the one thing that never changes?
My love for reading and also writing. I love my characters and the ones I have coming up, they all hold a special place in my heart.
What is your advice to authors just starting out?
Go for it, life is too short not to have a go. Take your time when writing, do not rush it, this is your masterpiece and there is nothing worse than a rushed piece. Enjoy the process and always ask for help from anyone in the community including other authors, we will always be happy to help you.
Where is your favourite place to go on holiday?
If you could live inside any fictional world, where would that be?
Oh my there are too many to pick from, it would have to be Pirates of the Caribbean. I mean who wouldn’t want to be alongside Orlando Bloom.
Your favourite place to read and/or write?
Bed and outside when the weather is nice.
Who is the most famous person you’ve ever met?
Mr Simon Cowell, who may I say is very short but a very nice man.
What did you always want to be when you were growing up?
Holiday Rep in Florida. I even went to college and did a travel course.
Who is your biggest cheerleader?
My handsome husband. He is always pushing me and praising me no matter what.
BONUS QUESTION: Tell me a secret about one of your books that nobody else knows yet!
There’s a secret child, and the father is not who you think it is! (Darkest Truths Book Two, Fortitude Memories.)
