About the author:
I live in a small town in New Zealand, with my husband and a black labrador.
I love creating books about ordinary people doing interesting things. The characters in my story are just a little better looking and more charismatic than in real life, but they think and feel like normal people.
What inspired you to write your book?
I love second chances and happy endings. I'd already written Song for Jess, about the characters in this story when they were young, and wonder what they'd be like when they grew up. Butterfly Kisses is that story.
Here is a short sample from the book:
Flit through my life,
With delicate gossamer wings
That never leave a mark.
Miles leaned over and pulled another bottle out of the crate. “A whole song about of the joys of casual sex? Didn’t know that was possible.”
“It works.” Isaac paused the music at the end of the track.
“Why butterflies?” Toby rested his elbows on his knees. “I haven’t heard them called that before.”
“Just something I said to Jess that first night, I worked it into what I’d already written.”
Toby shrugged. “We’ll be the poster boys for the STD clinics. You’re going to have to tone it down. And Jess isn’t going to love it.”
“It won’t be her favourite.”
“Hasn’t she heard it?” asked Miles.
“Not yet.” And he was going to have to do something about that, somehow manage Jess’s expectations.
