I am a Daughter, Mother, Wife and Entrepreneur and on a good day, an Author. I live near London in England. Now in my mid-forties, I have collected up snippets along the way, some good, some bad and these I try to tap into for inspiration. I also have a lively imagination, so I am never alone. I love with writing that you have the power to go in any direction and twist and turn it whenever you please, and sprinkle it with delicious spice whenever you want, if only real life was that easy.

Bernie Taylor: London Days & Nights is my debut book and to get an idea of my style there is also a short read, which is ideal for a 10 minute break or an insight into Bernie Taylor, called 'A moment with Bernie Taylor, Room 112' that is available from www.sleepinglionspublishers.com for free. What have I done today?…Well, I have thoroughly enjoyed getting stuck into the 2nd book in the series about the sexy Bernie Taylor: The New York Days & Nights which I have just finished and look forward to starting the third book in the series, then it's over to you guys, happy reading x

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
Writing is something that I've wanted to do for a lot of years now but it seemed life got in the way until I woke up one day after having a flood in my home and thought, if I have no TV and no sofa to sit on at the end of the day, I should make the time count and so sat down at my desk which was fortunately upstairs and with a glass of red in one hand started the first draft of Bernie Taylor. I had always enjoyed Jackie Collins books myself or the central character of Bridget Jones, so I decided to have one main character. A sexy strong female called Bernie Taylor and write a story that I would enjoy to read, and so she was born!

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
A conversation with Bella Andre, who noted that my publishing journey seemed a little unfocused, and gave me advice based on her own success. She told me to consider writing a series. Write them well, but write them quickly, she said. Don’t sacrifice quality, but the key is to write them, and keep writing them. Her exact words? “Write the books. Write the books. Write all of the books.” I will always – alwaysalwaysalways- be grateful to Bella Andre for that advice, and she will always live epic and beloved in my mind for taking an hour out of her exceptionally busy life to mentor a newer author.

Cherry by Giselle Renarde

cherrynewadultARELate nights by a roaring fire, star-gazing with the cute park ranger, lazing around the balmy beach—sounds like a perfect summer vacation, doesn’t it? Cherry loves camping so much she doesn’t even mind spending a week with her nosy parents. Anyway, camping is kind of their family tradition.

That’s why Cherry’s so upset when her father invites his recently-divorced friend, Phil, along. A geeky guest intruding on their family vacation? Not fair!

But when Phil arrives at the campground… WOW! Was he always so cool? No, definitely not. When she was younger, Phil had been just another dorky dad. Now he’s stylish and fun and even pretty hunky! Divorce suits him nicely, as far as Cherry’s concerned.

Phil is the last man in the world who should be turning Cherry’s head, but the fact that their love is forbidden makes it that much tastier. The forest isn’t big enough to keep two lovelorn people apart… even if they’re totally wrong for each other.

This book contains scenes some readers may find offensive. It is intended for mature audiences only.
