Where do you get your inspiration from?
Anywhere and everywhere.
How do you go about creating the perfect "Swoon" worthy man?
I start by thinking of all the qualities that would make me ‘swoon’ and take it from there.
If you couldn’t be an author, what would your ideal career be?
I would say an archaeologist but I’m not good with dirt, mummies or enclosed places. Hmm, maybe I should go for historian.
What’s the most romantic thing anyone has ever done for you?
A stranger once chased me down the street to give me a bunch of flowers (and no I didn’t get his number).
What do you do to unwind and relax?
Read, cook or watch action movies.
What’s your greatest weakness?
Is the stuff you write about from experience or mostly imagination?
It’s a combination of the two.
What do you do to get in the mood for writing love scenes? Candles, music etc?
I always find them the hardest scenes to write. Usually stare wide eyed at a blank screen in silence for hours. ;)
BlurbCinderella meets Swan Lake in a cross-class, Victorian novel about a ballerina, an aristocrat, and the space in between them.
Lisette yearns for freedom, security and love, but none are offered on the run-down stage of The Imperial Theatre. Instead she has hard work, a tyrannical aunt, and the hope of one day becoming a prima ballerina. Dancing on the stage she catches the attention of two powerful men: Lord Gainswith and Lord De Vale.
Lord Evander Gainswith never expected to fall in love, let alone with a woman so wholly unacceptable to his family and his peers. The sinister Lord De Vale covets Lisette's youth and strength, and is willing to pay well for it. Lisette may dance roles in fairy tales and fantasies, but the real world is about to intrude, bringing with it the harsh realities of life for a young girl with dreams of rising above the demimonde.
