Well, I thought I’d give you all a bit of a taste of what I’m writing currently, that’s due for release in September 2016. I’m keeping my cards very close to my chest! But here is a taster of what inspired the story.
It’s a modern day romance/suspense story with, glitz and glam, old sckool falling in love, and of course emotional at times. Within the story for the Heroine she has ”conflicts” that the average women could relate to, her conflicts are in no way old fashioned or a plot that has been done and dusted a million times (as far as I know) and it is not a typical ” love triangle”. There are some themes that may have in the past and currently do impact on everyday women regardless of age or race in our day to day society.
The story is set in my home town the city of London UK,the south of France and the English coast, UK. Why 3 different settings you say? Well this is a roller coaster and whirlwind romance story (with added suspense), the twists in the plot need different locations to keep the plot alive, and relate to the Hero and Heroine and their current life situations and conflicts I have plot out for them. In addition to this, I just love diversity so why keep the story in one central place? It works so I’m rollin’ with it y’all.
Romance generally speaking as a genre for me is all about love, emotion, escaping and the sexy times too but it’s important to me personally, that romance is believable and realistic as well. Yes there can be some glitz and glam and extravagance but the underlining issues should be realistic, believable and even shocking if need be. Me I’ve tried to go for all 3 realistic, believable and in some places a little surprising.
What inspired this story was life, my love for the country France, its language and culture. I also really like how society is made up in this day and age, and wanted to reflect this. In London you will find so many different cultures and so my characters represent the normal people I see in society day to day, this is not an all white or all black character line up it’s just like London diverse. I also feel that sometimes when I’m reading books are just not diverse enough in character and the writer writes what they know, the culture they know, the race they know etc too one sided.
Now you may think, this is boring what’s the suspense? Where’s the romance? Where’s the glitz and glam ? Where’s the conflict for the characters? And where the hell are the sexy times?… Well, dear reader this is all the juicy stuff; and if I told you I would ruin the surprise and my publisher would probably kill me! But what I will say is I’m loving every moment of writing and I am writing from the heart , and I hope you enjoy, in fact I am glued to the lap top every chance I can get. And still can’t believe I am about to be a published author. What a head f*ck LOL.
