Tell us about the location you chose for your SUNLOUNGER 2 story? I chose New Orleans, USA. The French Quarter in particular has a vibrancy about it and so much to offer in the way of history, architecture (see St Louis Cathedral below) and festivals (Mardi Gras!), not to mention the famous Creole cuisine and fabulous cocktails. It is also the birthplace of jazz, so I knew my hero, who is a musician, would find it enthralling.
Have your books featured any exotic destinations? WHY DO FOOLS FALL IN LOVE is set in Bath during the making of a movie, but at the end of the story the heroine visits Cannes (France) for the film festival.
If you could live anywhere in the world… I’d quite like to own my own desert island in the Caribbean – with all amenities, obviously!
Destination you’ve returned to the most times? I’ve been to Greece and the Greek islands about 5 or 6 times now. It’s the perfect combination of beautiful beaches, lovely people and incredible history.
Favourite cuisine from around the world? Chocolate from Belgium – does that count?
Favourite holiday cocktail? A Piña Colada – with as much fruit, paper umbrellas and sparklers that can be crammed into it.
What was your best/worst holiday romance? I was always having far too much fun on holiday to have a romance!
