2014 Debut Authors Bash Tour with Bethan Cooper

Can you tell us a little about your latest book?
Never Say Goodbye is filled with angst, love, craziness and a little bit of happiness all at once.

What inspired you to write it?
I was at a down point in my life. I always wanted to write a book so thought I should give it at go.
My characters one hundred percent reflect my mood when writing.

How did you come up with the idea for the cover?
It was perfect. It was exactly what I wanted. It just shows my lead heroine doing the opposite to the title.

If it was made into a movie, who would you like to play the main characters?
Ooooo.... I'm not sure!
Maybe Zac Efron for Luke (but that's because I love the guy) and maybe Jennifer Lawrence for Ella :D

What is it about this genre that appeals to you so much?

Just the desire for a happy ending.

What made you want to become an author?

I didn't intentionally, It just all seemed to happen and fall into place. Then all of a sudden I'm published and an author. Pretty amazing.

How do you come up with character names?
They just come to me.
I don't research. I just let the names come to me.

Name one of your all-time favourite books?
Favourite book ..... Hmmm... Probably all of Stephen Kings novels.

Who, or what, inspires you?
My life, my husband. Everything to do with everyday.

Where is your favourite place to write?
In my comfy seat at my iMac.

What is your favourite movie that was based on a book?
It'd have to be the notebook. It's just awesome.

Name two of your favourite authors.
Stephen King
Nicholas Sparks

If you could have a dinner party with any authors from any time in history, who would you choose and why?
Probably The Bronte sisters. I grew up in their village, and would love to talk to them.

Tell us a random fact about yourself.
I'm obsessed with Disney.

Who would play you in the movie about your life?

Ahah. I have no idea!

Tell us an interesting fact about where you live.

I currently live in Essex, UK, but used to live in West Yorkshire which is full of history. Haworth, where I lived, is where the Bronte family lived.

What are your (writing) plans for the future?
To keep going no matter what.

Tell us one thing that's on your bucket list.
To visit every DisneyLand in the world.

Favourite myth / fairytale?
Disney ones :)

Who did you want to be when you were a kid?
I wanted to be like my mum. Someone who could save people's lives and make them better.
