What book (or author) made you fall in love with the romance genre?

Well, my mother made me fall in love with writing because she was an author and it looked like a pretty cushy job. She would disappear into her office, close the door, smoke innumerable cigarettes and then come out again. I don’t smoke cigarettes, obviously, but it is a pretty cushy job. I’m not sure I would consider myself a romance writer, specifically, but I used to consume romance novels in vast quantities as a teen, and still dip into Mary Stewart when I feel the urge for a little romantic suspense. In my books the romance is never the main point of the book, it’s just yet another thing the heroine is dealing with.

What is your favourite trope? Why?

Enemies to lovers, easy. Why? Because there are so many opportunities for sparky dialog and stomping off.

What book are you reading currently?

I’m not really reading anything properly right now because I’m in final edits for my next book, and I can’t concentrate. I literally have a Wodehouse in the kitchen and two Agatha Christie’s upstairs, all of which I can open and read if I’m desperate to escape my own dumb, stupid book which isn’t coming out right.

The rapid fire question – New York or LA?

LA, but it’s a tough call. If I didn’t have kids and pets and a husband I would much rather be in NYC, but I have all that here, and it works much better in LA.
