A Christmas story...at last!

I’m so delighted to tell you a little about my new novel, What Happened To Us?  You will have probably already guessed that this is a Christmas read from the lovely spangly cover my publishers have designed for it. It is just gorgeous, isn’t it?

Because Mummy Said So...

For almost twenty years, I’ve made a living writing romcoms and raunchy bonkbusters. It’s a glamorous, elegant existence in which I waft around in designer togs being creative, sometimes reclining on a chaise longue with a tray of Turkish Delight until the muse grabs me. That’s when I lift my diamanté-studded fountain pen and scribe a few thousand words with carefree abandon. 

Okay, that’s all lies – apart from the bit about writing romcoms and raunchy bonkbusters. And the Turkish Delight. 

Minna Howard on the dreaded synopsis!

      I simply hate writing a synopsis of a book I’ve yet to write.
        I know it’s an important part of pitching an idea for a novel but if I know how the story is going to pan out before I write it I become overwhelmed with boredom and the idea is dead before its began. 
         Writing a novel is a big commitment and I need the excitement of spontaneous events, new trials and tribulations to test my characters, see how they affect them and how they deal with them.

After The Note, some Distance

After The Note, some Distance

How do you write a new book when you think you only have one idea?

Hi. I’m Zoë. And I’m a one-trick pony. Or that’s what I spent too much time worrying about.
I’m the (sober) girl on the train who fell in love with a man from afar on her daily commute, pined for him for over a year, wished I had the courage to talk to him but didn’t, wrote him a note, got rejected, got together, got married, had kids, and then wrote The Note – a novel based on my story.

Georgie Capron on The Distance Between Us

My third book, The Distance Between Us, is an honest exploration of marriage and motherhood.  It delves into the intricacies of being in a long-term relationship, both the highs and the lows, the joy and privilege of knowing someone inside and out, balanced with the humdrum of everyday life that is the reality of marriage and co-parenting.  The school run, the laundry, the housework, the endless juggling, the temper tantrums, the sick bugs, the bickering, the family celebrations, the outings, the cuddles, the bedtime stories: the true fabric of family life.
