1. When did you first start writing?
It was Feb 2001 when I first decided to try my hand at writing. I began by taking a comprehensive course with the Writers Bureau. I then went on to write articles and short stories for women’s magazines.
2. What drew you to writing Chic-lit/Women’s Interest stories?
My first novel, The Trojan Project, was a thriller. When I came to start another novel, I decided I wanted to write something different. Something light, frothy and quirky; something which would give readers a chance to smile. Life can be so dull at times.
3. Where does your inspiration for these stories come from?
I really don’t know. Something pops into my head and I just go with it. I make everything up as I go along. Perhaps not the best way to do things, but it works for me.
4. What has your experience been like publishing with Amazon?
I haven’t actually published with Amazon myself. I submitted my novel to my publisher, SalGad Publishing, and once they had edited the manuscript they worked with Amazon.
5. Where is your favourite place to write?
I have converted the spare bedroom into my office. I sit out there for hours on end beavering away. My husband is an avid reader, so he is quite happy to let me get on with it while he enjoys his books.
6. Who are some of your favourite authors?
I enjoy reading books by C J Sansom, Rory Clements, Barbara Erskine and Karen Rose. But I also read numerous chic-lit novels.
7. I see your other work is a thriller – this is quite a change to Divorcees.biz, why did you decide to write a thriller?
As I explained earlier, The Trojan Project was my first novel. I wrote Divorcees.Biz because I wanted to lighten up a little and it worked! It was fun to write, which is why I have decided to write another chic-lit. I am going to call this one ‘I Haven’t a Clue!’
