Tania Tirraoro was born in Wales and raised in the North West of England but now resides in leafy Surrey with her husband and two sons.
She spent a decade working as a broadcast journalist and newsreader which has been the inspiration for This Last Summer.
Tania has a blog, http://notasadvertised.blogspot.com and a website helping parents with special needs education, http://www.specialneedsjungle.co.uk. Both Tania's sons have Asperger Syndrome and so the Asperger's character of Ben in This Last Summer is written from the heart.
Livia Rosetti's passion is baking beautiful artisan cakes. Entrepreneur, Rufus Knightly's passion is business. He's tempted by her confectionery company and by Livia herself. But though Livia once shared a kiss under the mistletoe with him, she's worried that mixing business and pleasure is the recipe for disaster.
