What inspired you to write your book?
Skydiving myself. After spending time on the dropzone and researching it heavily, I realized that the potential for romance is huge, as is the likelihood of conflict when sexual chemistry and extreme situations are combined. It seemed like a solid foundation for an interesting story.
Here is a short sample from the book:
As she knelt at the door of the plane, breathing in that familiar choke of diesel, the wind rushing at her face, Lucy looked down at North Devon again. It felt different this time around. The leaves were turning, it was changing color – it wasn’t that. She wasn’t frozen by fear.
Martin knelt to her left, Froggy to her right – she had to land the parachute herself today – Josh couldn’t save her. And yet in spite of that (or maybe because of it, maybe Lucy liked control), she felt calmer this time around.
She fought her way up onto her feet by herself, Martin holding the handhold of her blue jumpsuit, edging out of the door, holding onto the bar.
There were wisps of cloud below them, high above the higgledy piggledy patchwork. The wind rushed at her face.
She checked in: peering down the Cessna through the crowd of crash helmets. She checked out: a sea of blue. Lucy nodded quickly, eyes wide, heart thumping.
As she could ever be. The three of them fell out of the plane door.
