You are a well-established romance author. Have you written anything other than contemporary? 
I have written a romantic comedy screenplay and some poetry and some short stories, but my main home is category romance, as I love bringing feel good stories to readers. After all, it’s where I began my love affair with the genre! I really love the challenge of writing layered and deeply emotional stories so readers are not just entertained but have a chance to think as well.

How do you get the inspiration for your stories? 
I find life very inspiring. Every day I hear or read of something that makes me think of another story idea. In can be a snippet in the newspaper or a gossip magazine, or an issue I’ve been thinking about. Sometimes the line of a song or even a photograph can set me off on a creative whirl! 

Who is your favourite heroine ever? In your own books I mean…
Wow, that’s a hard question to answer! I love a spirited and feisty heroine so I guess Angelique in Never Gamble With A Caffarelli would be a stand out. I often felt as if she was in my office waiting for me to get back to writing her story. It was totally weird! 

Sum up your book in a Tweet: 

Hardnosed property developer locks horns with sweet but feisty tearoom owner in quiet English village. 

What’s next for you? 

Never Underestimate A Caffarelli and Never Gamble With a Caffarelli are out in October and November. I am currently working on a Presents title with an uptight English hero and a scandal magnet heroine. Sparks are flying!


I play by the rules, but they’re my rules.”  Poppy Silverton is as untouched as the leafy English vilalge where she runs a tearoom.  But her home, her livelihood and her innocence are under threat.  Rafe Caffarelli is a mouthwatering specimen of Mediterranean manhood.  He’s a playboy billionaire and determined to buy Poppy’s historic dower house.  Poppy will not give up the only thing that remains of her childhood and family.  She’ll fight Rafe – and her attraction to him -all the way.  And be the first woman to say “no” to a Caffarelli.
