Welcome to Day 19 of #RomancingSeptember
Our guest today is Joanne Phillips with her book Cupid’s Way.
Where is your home town?
How long have you been writing romance?
For about six years formally, although I’ve always dabbled.
What is your favourite sub-genre of romance?
I love loads of sub-genres of romance, but particularly enjoy books where a romance is blossoming within some other kind of struggle – this is a popular theme in much current women’s fiction.
Where is your book set?
In Bristol, in the fictional setting of Cupid’s Way.
Who or what is Cupid’s Way?
It’s a cute Victorian terrace street that is under threat from developers.
Introduce us to Evie
Evie is single and searching for adventure – although she doesn’t necessarily know that it’s an adventure she’s after right away. She is passionate about architecture and ecology, and cannot believe that her grandparents’ beloved home is about to be demolished.
What help do her Grandparents need?
They think that because Evie is an architect, she can help them fight the planners – but they are in for a big surprise …
How does this affect her relationship with her new friend Michael?
Michael and Evie are made for each other – in another life! In this life they occupy positions firmly on either side of a very high fence, and neither can easily see the other person’s point of view.
Tell us what you are working on at the moment.
Right now I’m in the final stages of editing a new contemporary romance called Keeping Sam, which is about a single mother, Kate, who is fighting to get her son back after a vicious attack that kept her in a coma for months. Only problem is, the person looking after Sam is totally unwilling to give him back. And this person is Kate’s own mother.
