Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
I've always loved writing since my school days! Journals, essays , stories anything to do with words has always been my passion. I started in school. I was in my early twenties when I discovered Jackie Collins, I read Deadly Embrace and was hooked instantly on Jackie's stories, I read every book in the Lucky series and more. Then I discovered Martina Cole and promised myself one day I'll write a book. I remember thinking wow what a suspenseful story I wonder if I could create such an exciting experience in a story? As life moved on, I carved out the time as a life changing event happened and writing distracted me , a form of escapism. Now in my mid thirties it's all I want to do. It took me a good ten years to knuckle down, and put down all my ideas on paper, but I've arrived... finally.
What's the story behind your latest book?
I'm about to release a series of modern, steamy romance novellas. It's my Romance Set In Paradise series. The first book Havana Heat is released on the 12th May, and will go on pre-sale anytime now! The second book Lover's Retreat will follow a few weeks after. The story behind the four books (could be more), is the simple fact I had so many short story ideas and wanted to put them into a series, the problem was there was no common theme. I decided to set them all in some of the most exotic places in the world to add a little spice! Hence Romance Set in Paradise.
