Raised in HEREFORD (where I live), she's now a Yorkshire lass. She has an author blog and a book blog (Books with Bunny) which can be found at www.kateylovell.blogspot.co.uk and www.bookswithbunny.blogspot.co.uk respectively.
So, Katey, pull up a chair. I haven't had a chance to talk men in ages. Who would be your ideal man?
Many men! Well I think we'd better see these Adonises, hadn't we?
One of my very first crushes was Chesney Hawkes.
Oh no, you got me! LOL
I thought he was the most beautiful man on the planet! I begged my Mum to take me to see him at Hereford Leisure Centre in 1991. She finally caved when she couldn’t take a minute more of my pleading, and I now have to admit to him being my first concert whenever anyone asks.
I can’t remember what I wanted to be when I was eleven, but I know I wanted to be a gymnast for a while after the 1992 Olympics, so that was when I was twelve. Alas, it was never meant to be.
Very few of us seem to have the ability to predict at that age. And was your mind a reader back then? What kind of books were you into? Can you give me, say, three?
I’ve always been a voracious reader but as a child/teen I think my ultimate favourites were Forever by Judy Blume (I reread this recently and it was still as wonderful as ever), Matilda by Roald Dahl and the Sweet Valley High series by Francine Pascal.
I can't think of Matilda these days without thinking of the headmistress' rant in Outnumbered. Brilliant!
Thank you, Katey. So about your writing. Tell us what you've been up to.
My new releases are the Meet Cute series – the first short story (seen here) is The Boy in the Bookshop, released on October 29th, followed by The Boy at the Beach on November 5th and The Boy at the Bakery on November 12th. Published by Harper Collins' digital first romance imprint Harper Impulse.
Exciting! What are they?
They're a set of short stories about the moment you meet.
What a lovely idea. And you can find these stories at:
