Get to know the writer:
What is your novel about?
It looks at the Cinderella fairytale from the Wicked Stepmother’s view through the eyes of a reporter. Essentially it shows there are many different sides to each story depending
on who you ask, the need to let go of prejudice and appreciate the inner beauty of a person. It is about facing obstacles and becoming a survivor instead of a victim.
What genres would you say this novel is in?
How would you describe this story in two words?
What movie have you seen the most in your life?
What is your favorite song? (Or, what song have you listened to the most times in your life?)
Baby Elephant Walk by Henry Mancini
Do you have an all-time favorite novel?
No, it changes depending on my mood.
What motivated you to write this story?
I have been viewed as the wicked stepmother by my stepchildren. The way they saw accounts was very different to my own.
If you could have dinner with one person (dead or alive), who would that be?
Apart from writing, what else are you passionate about?
Gardening, Charity work
What influenced you to enter your story to get performed?
I have been told it would make a good movie so I thought this would give me some idea whether to go down that track or not.
Any advice or tips you’d like to pass on to other writers?
Get a good editing package like Grammarly BEFORE you publish your book. Your friends will not pick up all the mistakes.
