Mandy, tell us something of your journey as a writer. Has it been long and hard, or short and exciting?
Romantic fiction is a wide genre, which sub-genre would you say your books slot into?
I always use the term ‘contemporary romance’ because my books are all modern day and the main theme is the romantic connection between the two lead characters. However, there is also humour, drama, action, family issues, you name it it’s probably there somewhere in my book. I also use the term ‘chick-lit’. Some people don’t like it, I just see it as standing for popular women’s fiction and I’m more than happy to be associated with that!
What inspired you to write your latest book TAKING CHARGE?
I don’t think I’ve ever written in an odd place! I tend to have a notepad to hand wherever I am but not done it in the bath before!
Do you find it easy to keep faith in yourself, or do you have any tricks to boost your own morale.
