I’m thrilled skinny to be dropping in here as part of the Second Helpings blog tour. A million thanks to Erotica for All for having me as a guest.
One of the pre-release reviews of Second Helpings (look at me being all British and swiftly passing over the fact that the review was a very good one) said, “There is a depth and honesty to this story that sucks you in, making you want more.” That’s the sort of remark that makes an author grin from ear to ear, but it also got me thinking. Have all my stories got depth and honesty? I’d liked to think so but, being brutally honest, there’s probably a wide range within my writing and I’ve no doubt I fall short of highest expectations at times. Sometimes you really connect with a couple as you write about them (my long running detectives Jonty and Orlando would be a prime example) and sometimes you’re just acting as “biographer”.
