What does Bea do for a living?
She’s a trust officer looking after the private trusts and companies of wealthy clients.
Tell us what she does after losing her god-mother and discovering her husband’s affair.
She employs a grumpy, but handsome builder, Luke, to help with the renovations of the rundown, twenties home she’s inherited from her godmother and tries to find a way to keep the house.
Tell us about the mysterious legacy her aunt (god-mother) left her in her Will.
All she knows about it is the name, A Jersey Kiss, but she has no idea what it can be, so finding it proves more difficult than she expected.
Who comes back into her life?
Tom is an ex-boyfriend, who she went out with when they were both at university, he returns to the island and is her new Manager at work. Meeting up with him causes Bea all sorts of problems.
You recently signed a four-book deal with Accent Press, can you tell us more about the four books?
They are a series of stand-alone romances set in Jersey. Book 1 – A Jersey Kiss – is out today! The second book, A Jersey Affair will be out soon and the other two following on in the next few months.
Tell us what you are working on at the moment.
I’m drafting the third book in the series, A Jersey Dreamboat. It’s the story of two girls, Izzy and Jessica, whose business hiring out vintage crockery and linen, is put in jeopardy. Their entire collection is booked for a two-week period at the busiest time of the year for the society wedding of a wealthy local man’s daughter. Unfortunately, she elopes just before the wedding, too late for them to find replacement bookings and recoup their losses. Izzy’s brother introduces them to two French brothers and they invite the girls to make up the numbers on a three-week cruise to the South of France. Izzy and Jess arrive at the brothers’ family home to meet the rest of the group only to discover they live in a chateau and the brothers are Counts. And then the fun begins…
