Author Guest / September 17, 2021

I think it’s safe to say that a swoon-worthy hero, the ever-elusive book boyfriend, is what makes a good book great.  As a reader, I’m always chasing this man.

I met my husband at the end of my first year of university, when we both worked for a summer at McDonalds. On our first day, he cracked a dirty joke and I was the only one who laughed. That’s how he knew he had to lock me down. When we’re not in a Covid world, I enjoy travel. I live in New Zealand, so it’s a long flight from here to anywhere and it’s nice to see outside the borders of my beautiful country. I wrote my first book when I…
