~ About the author ~
First off I would like to tell you a little bit about me,I am a massive book worm who has been inspired by many talented authors to pursue my own path.
I am a thirty two year old mum to an nine year old wonderful daughter. I am new to the writing scene, and as well as being a mum I run my own small business in massage and holistic therapy's which I started in April 2013. I have not been writing since high school were English was my favourite lesson and I loved writing reports and short stories but I lost touch with it after leaving school and working many bar jobs. I still stayed a massive book worm and love anything from horror, drama and romance to young adult novels. 2013 was were I started making many changes and doing things. I decided to enter a writing completion at which I did not get very far in the competition but by just entering it was the push I needed to carry on writing my first novel lust or love, It has been a bumpy journey but I am very happy that my first novel lust or love will be released very soon through

Just recently it was decided that lust or love is to be a series ,it wasn't originally going to be,however it has been wrote in three parts and been added to ,I did start to write something else new ,but I have again come back to lust or love there is still more to come, and part 2 just lust and part 3 choose love will be out this year

I decided to make some live changes and do things that I love to do and writing again was one of them.

2.             How long does it take you to write a book?
Lust or love  is my first novel and took over a year to write . It was going to be a stand alone until few months ago I decided that  there was more that  could be added to the book, I decided  it could split it into three parts and im still working on changing parts two and three

For me as I like to read anything,the characters have got to be easy to relate to and to like (even if I  love to hate them) . The story has to grip me and helps if I feel a mix of emotions from start to the end of any story.

16.          As a child, what did you want to do when you grew up? I wanted to be a teacher,then in my teens I wanted to be a writer,then late teens to  early adult hood I wanted to own my own bar,Now I love being a mum I would love to own my own holistic salon and to keep on writing.

Okay this one needs some work. I'm sorry but I'm an avid reader and while I did love the story it was way to short and needed more information in the chapters and some more back story on the characters. There was no indication that there would be another book coming to follow this one even though it says Love or Lust 1. An excerpt into the next book or even a blurb would have been much appreciated.
