Great to be back, Wendy.
So, 3 books eh? Okay...
1 – Alive and Kicking by Beryl Kingston
This is the first book that made me cry. My dad lent it to me, and it wasn’t my usual type of book, considering at the time I was in my early twenties devouring Anne Rice’s Vampire Chronicles. It was probably my first historical, too, as the story gives you an insight to World War 1, and the women left behind, while the men went off to fight.
2 – Incompetence by Rob Grant
This is the first book to make me cry with laughter. I mean, I had tears rolling down my cheeks and a fit of giggles. I couldn’t continue reading the scene. Rob Grant is a co-writer of Red Dwarf which I am a big fan of. This book is futuristic, following a detective on the hunt for a murderer, and plays on the incompetence of the human race at its extreme.
I think a book that can illicit great emotion, in whichever direction, has got to be good.
3 – Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë
I bought this book in a second-hand book shop for charity. I needed to read more classics, especially now as I was venturing into writing romance professionally. This has to be my favourite of the classics (closely followed by Pride and Prejudice), although I can’t exactly put my finger on why. I just couldn’t stop reading. I found it so emotional, especially at the beginning, I loved Brontë’s writing. I thought the book would be so hard to read and get into because it was a ‘classic’. How wrong I was!
Fab story, I agree and probably my favourite too. Three great choices there.
And in the hope of being a future classic one day, can you tell us what's happening in your writing life?
Ooooh! All right then. Tell us about One Fine Day.
Just a boy standing in front of a girl…
Actor Steve Mason has it all … gorgeous looks, the perfect starlet girlfriend hanging on his arm and his name on every Hollywood producer’s lips. That is, until it turns out the ‘perfect girl’ is actually a perfect PR stunt! Dumped and with his name plastered across every tabloid headline, Steve decides to head home to England, questioning if he’ll ever find a woman who genuinely loves him for who he is, and not just his place on the Sexiest Man Alive list.
It’s been fifteen long years since Ruby last saw her big brother – but the new LA version of Steve complete with designer wardrobe, California tan and an American accent is too much to bear – Ruby hardly recognises him and decides it’s time to get her brother back!
With Ruby’s help, Steve goes undercover as he plays the part of a regular guy who leads a regular life. And then one perfectly fine, ordinary day he meets lovely, funny, down-to-earth Lydia. But when Hollywood comes calling, will Steve be able to leave both Lydia and his little sister behind?
