Welcome to Day 23 of Romancing September Across the World Tour. Today our guest is Fay Cunningham. Join her now and again later over with Stephanie for her views on writing romance in today’s society.
Let’s find out more about Fay and her book;
1) Where is your home town?
2) How long have you been writing?
Since I was at school. I won a prize for English Language and that started me off.
3) Has you always written romance?
I started with short stories for women’s magazines, then a couple of crime novels, but I got hooked on Nora Roberts writing as JD Robb and decided I liked a mix of both romance and crime.
4) This is a romantic suspense novel where did the inspiration for the storyline come from?
I wondered what would happen if someone found a mobile phone. Would they look at the messages?
5) When does Police Detective Jack Armstrong arrive on the scene in Serena’s life?
Right near the beginning. He is investigating the injured man Serena found in the ditch.
6) How did you build up the relationship between Jack and Serena?
I wanted him to be sarcastic and quite objectionable at the start of the relationship. He has some really good lines of dialogue.
7) Is Serena’s father the proverbial “Skeleton in the cupboard”?
You could say that, but he is not a villain. Quite the opposite, in fact.
8) Can you hint how you keep the readers enthralled until the end?
I often don’t know how the book is going to end myself, so it is bound to be a surprise for the reader.
9) What other romances have you written?
Five that were previously My Weekly Pocket Novels, all available on Amazon, and two crime thrillers now published by Harlequin Worldwide Books.
10) Do you have a new book or a sequel to “Forgotten” that you are writing at the moment?
My new book doesn’t have a title yet, but it is another romantic suspense novel. A girl is on the run with her four-year-old son, but the reader will have no idea why. Not to begin with, anyway.
Find “Forgotten” at Amazon.co.uk or Amazon.com
