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?
That I am shy. I am not one to join a conversation, so please do not think that I am rude.
Tell me which genre or trope you are most well-known for writing.
MC. I do a mixture of tropes.
What is one thing people don’t know about you?
That I am fiercely loyal to those I care about.
Name a book you’ve written that you wish more people had read, and why.
This Time Around. It is a sweet second-chance story set in the UK. I loved writing Liam and Penny’s book.
What is your favourite book (not your own), and why?
Shade: The Last riders MC by Jamie Begley. I loved how she wrote his character, so complex, so demanding yet sweet, cunning and vindictive.
Was there a book you wrote that broke you and made you feel like you’d never write again?
Nope, I am too scared to write a heartbreaker.
Are you one of those authors for whom music is EVERYTHING and without it you’d never write?
Yes. I have to have music playing when I write, also ice hockey games.
Is your desk/writing space tidy or messy?
Tidy. I get stressed it if is messed up.
Who or what inspires you as a writer?
My family. They are my rock, my biggest supporters.
Are you an introvert or extrovert? Or something else…?
I am an introvert; it takes me some time to get used to people to feel comfortable about them.
The literary world moves fast, but what’s the one thing that never changes?
The love of reading.
What is your advice to authors just starting out?
Do you. Do not compare yourself to other authors. Every author works with their own styles, and they do what works for them.
Where is your favourite place to go on holiday?
Any place hot and sunny. I love Miami.
If you could live inside any fictional world, where would that be?
Your favourite place to read and/or write?
In the corner of my corner unit. All cwtched up with a blanket and a cup of tea.
When you’re as old as Gandalf the Grey, how many books do you think you might have written?
Who is the most famous person you’ve ever met?
Michael Sheen. (His parents still live in my town, and he visits from time to time)
What did you always want to be when you were growing up?
If writing is your full-time job, have you ever been told to get a “proper job”?
All the time. Mainly from family.
Who is your biggest cheerleader?
My husband. He is always there when I need him for support.
