About the Author
I come from a performing background with over 10 years acting experience. I have worked as a producer on various film projects before going on to set up my own production company. With experience of both production and post production processes, I am a trained editor and have also written and produced several short films scripts. In 2010 took a step back from producing realising that my passion was for writing. I now spend my days looking after a high spirited toddler and coming up with imaginative stories where you can escape everyday life. Originally from England, after a few years of travelling the world I moved to Ireland where I currently live with my husband, 2 young daughters, 16 chickens, a pet rabbit and a cat named Tilly
What inspires you to write romance books?
I might read a witty line in book, or see a picture that sparks a memory that helps me come up with a new character. It's all very random.
Tell us about how you write:
I write in the dark at night like a vampire. When I was at college I always studied for exams at night while listening to music and the habit seems to have stuck. I have layers. I have the story in my head so I write it down as quickly as possible. Then the conversations between the characters come to me. Then I write the emotions. Then I go over it all and try to pull all the layers together.
Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
I do talk to my characters but as another characterin the book. It's how I get their interactions to flow.
What advice would you give other writers?
Write every day and read a many romance books as you can. You will figure out your style, what works and what does not along the way.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
I have self published and gone with independent publishers because I like to have control of what my readers are getting and how.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
I really have no Idea how it's going to go. There are so many authors now choosing to self publish over the traditional route to keep creative control of their work and I get that. I’ve done that. People are getting savvier and learning how to do things themselves with the end product rivalling the books coming from the big publishing companies. I feel a change is coming.
