Who is your perfect hero and why?
A perfect hero is perfect in his imperfections. He may be funny, but perhaps he sometimes uses his humour inappropriately. He may be brave, but sometimes he may be stupidly brave. He may be smart, but sometimes he might be a dick about it. Perfect in his imperfections, but with all of this, he must match his heroine perfectly.
I’m a MASSIVE fan of Kim Harrison and Meljean Brook. I’m really super pumped for the last in Kim Harrison’s Hollows series and am enjoying immensely Meljean Brook’s foray into serials with The Kraken King.
I would love to write an adventure-filled tale. For some reason, my stories tend to be fairly introspective, with lots of emotion and hanging out and stuff. I would adore sword-fights and mad dashes and wild laughter while defeating enemies. Hopefully I’ll get there!

The idea for TEACH ME came while I was on a bus tour in Scotland. I had just started a three month holiday and was daydreaming while the bus rolled through the gorgeous wind-swept Scottish landscape. Suddenly, I saw a cold, controlled man on the fringes of a ballroom, watching a bright, shining woman as she danced and laughed. I knew this man loved her, and what’s more, she loved him. I knew he was only at the ball because she wanted to be there, and I knew she was the only one who could see through his control to the sensitive, generous man beneath.
Oh, so many! I love the epilogue, because as I said, it was the first one I saw. I love when they met, because they are so wholly apart and neither is looking for love. But my favourite scene would have to be the indoor picnic. It’s a quiet scene, but I think it might be the moment Malvern falls completely in love with Elizabeth. Before, he was most of the way there, but her surprise picnic pushes him the rest of the way.
Right now I’m working on an exciting project for my publisher, Decadent Publishing. Beyond Fairy Tales will be a multi-author series where a fairy tale is assigned and we put our own spin on it. I’m doing my version of The Glass Coffin, a version of Sleeping Beauty, and I’m having a ball. In fact, I’m trying that adventure-filled thing...
What do you like to do when you are not writing?
I love to read, I love TV, I love hanging out with friends and family. I also love to cook, which makes hanging out with family and friends real easy – they always come for the food, if not my sparkling personality.
This year, it was 18 March, one day after the end of the Fringe Festival (which spelled the end of my second job) and the first day of my holidays from my first job. It was glorious!
