So many men; so little time. ;-) Well I think I'm going to go with... Sawyer. Fantastic. :-)
Oh, the list is endless! My first real crush was Han Solo.
Stop right there. Loved him too. We've got to get a photo of him up somewhere...
I remember watching Star Wars for the first time – him sprawled over the chairs in the cantina scene, all cocky and gorgeous, and thinking ‘wow – so this is what all the fuss is about!’. I also had a very long-term obsession with Dirk Benedict, who played Face in the A Team and Starbuck in the original Battlestar Galactica (yes, I am OLD). Really, I was in LOVE with him. Used to write fan fiction and everything, keep scrapbooks, even. And I must make special mention of my ‘Wimbledon phase’ – that time in my life when tennis became much more than a sport! The absolute joy of watching Stefan Edberg in his day, running around the court in shorts that seemed much shorter then.
So, we've got the 'men' bit sorted. What kind of job did you see yourself doing when you were a teen?
Might have been a bit of a hitch. ;-)
Can you remember any books that stand out for you from your childhood or teen years?
Oh yes. 101 Dalmations – I loved this so much I actually copied it all out, word for word, by hand, in a series of exercise books. Saddo alert!
I'm going to try and forget you said that. ;-)
The first Mills & Boon I read – I think it was called The Kissing Gate – was something of a revelation, and sadly started to convince me that that was how Love would be in the real world.
...and The Secret Garden – I won this as a prize at school and still have it, with the sticker inside that basically says ‘you are a huge swotty geek and there is no hope of you ever being cool’. I loved the story though – it was slightly dark, slightly scary.
Great choices. So tell us about your book. I believe it's a Christmas story. Very appropriate for this time of year.
Yes, it's called: Cold feet at Christmas. It's published by HarperImpulse and I'm very excited about it.
It's set in a remote Scottish castle on a snowy Christmas Eve. With a handsome husband-to-be and a dress to die for, it should have been the happiest day of Leah Harvey’s life – but the fairytale wedding turns sour when she finds her fiancé halfway up the bridesmaid’s skirt just hours before the ceremony! Fleeing the scene in a blizzard, Leah ends up stranded at the nearest cottage, where she collapses into the arms of its inhabitant – a man so handsome she thinks she must have died and gone to heaven! And when Rob Cavelli suddenly finds himself with an armful of soaking wet, freezing cold, and absolutely gorgeous bride on the run, he’s more than happy to welcome her into his snowbound cottage this Christmas…
Sounds great. Best of luck with it, Debbie and thanks for dropping by.
