Welcome to Day 12 of Romancing September Across The World Tour. Today our guest is Adrienne Vaughan. Catch up with more from Adrienne in a few hours with the second part of our tour when Stephanie chats to her.
Where is your home town?
I’m lucky enough to have two home towns, Leicester where I was born and Dublin where I was brought up.
How long have you been writing romance?
I wrote my first novel over 20 years ago, it might yet see the light of day. The Hollow Heart was published in 2012.
What is your favourite sub-genre of romance?
It has to be Romantic Suspense, I love intrigue and plots with turns and twists.
Tell us about Marianne’s job.
She is a workaholic, campaigning journalist. She believes that a journalist’s job is seeking out the truth and righting wrongs.
What drives Marianne to take a break from work?
Her personal life is in turmoil, her lovely boss is retiring and the ‘corporate suits’ are moving in. She’s discovering that although important, there is more to life than just a career.
Where does she end up running to?
She has an Irish background, so heads off to a remote island off the West Coast called Innishmahon.
Who does she meet again on the island?
The gorgeous, but equally troubled movie actor Ryan O’Gorman, also seeking solace somewhere far away from the bright lights of Hollywood.
What disaster threatens the community?
A terrible storm. As with most natural disasters, it shows people in their true light. Marianne realises there is more to Ryan than floppy black hair and cheekbones to die for.
Tell us what you are working on at the moment.
The final part of the Heartfelt trilogy, Secrets of the Heart.
