Your 9th book, In Dyer Need: The First Chapter, comes out on 1st Oct. What was the inspiration for the story?
I am not sure… I do love those end of world films, so I suppose that came into it a little, but the story just popped into my head and the end of world backdrop is only a very small part really, it’s a proper romance and Part two will be full of surprises!
What project are you currently working on?
The second part to this. I am editing it now.
Which author would you most like to meet?
Oh goodness, right now, all of them!
Which 5 people would you invite to a dinner party and why?
Barbra Streisand- I just love her, she is such an entertainer and I bet she has a lot of stories to tell.
Adele- That woman is hilarious!
Robbie Fowler- One of the best footballers ever to wear the Liverpool jersey!
Suranne Jones- Just so I could have Anne Lister there, and maybe see if she fancied playing any of my characters in a film/Tv Show
Maggie Smith- Again, I imagine she has a lot of stories to tell.
Other than books, what is one item you can’t resist buying?
Sunglasses. It’s the only thing that I will justify outrageous amounts of money on. I adore my Ray-Ban Aviators.
It’s the end of the world,
