No, you didn’t read that wrong. Though, yes, I still have trouble believing it myself. People often say to me, “You have four kids all under five years old, where do you get time to write?” Actually, it’s more like, “How the F%$K! have you written two books this year?” Well, short answer, “I don’t know.” Longer more philosophical answer… a) I have an extremely supportive family who helps out a lot and b) I love writing too much not do it.
Just elaborating on my second point… The thing with writing is that it’s as much a hobby as it is a business for me. I LOVE writing. I use it as an escape from the rest of my life. (ie. The housework and the four kids) Frankly, the only way to do that these days is to live partially in an alternate reality. J So come hell or high water I’m always trying to find a spare minute to get back to it. Bascially, if I’m not writing, I’m thinking about writing. So I guess that’s why it gets done because the motivation to have a break is so huge.
Anyway, without getting bogged down in all this self reflection, I have an announcement to make. Next year in February, Random House is launching a new e-book line called “Random Romance.” And my romantic comedy novella, “One Little White Lie,” is going to be one of the titles in the line up for first release. Very, very excited! To celebrate, I’m posting for the very first time, the blurb. Enjoy !
One Little White Lie
February 2013 – Random House Australia
A romantic comedy novella
What do you do when your best friend is the serial match maker from Hell?
Single girl Kate Dreson knows that her friend, Lisa, is not going to leave her alone unless she tells her that she is happily dating someone. Who knew that one little white lie could so blatantly backfire?
The imaginary boyfriend she described to her friend so lovingly suddenly walks into her life and starts making himself comfortable in it.
Trapped by her lie, poor Kate is powerless to stop him. But the real question is, does she really want to?
