manhattan-christmas-1This week saw the release of my third novel, A Very Merry Manhattan Christmas. This story has a special place in my heart because it features New York – where my husband proposed to me – and because I thoroughly enjoyed writing it. I am a hopeless romantic; I believe in true love, and that it’s worth fighting for and what better place to fall in love than in Manhattan…

A Very Merry Manhattan Christmas is about two friends, Lucie and Dale, who’ve always been there for each other. This year, Lucie is asked to be a bridesmaid at her friend Petra’s Christmas wedding in New York. She asks Dale to go with her because they do everything together and because she can’t imagine going without him.

My inspiration for the story started as a seed of an idea that bloomed into a novel. I love festive stories, especially A Christmas Carol, and one day I started thinking about a character who might, in some ways, be a modern female version of Ebenezer Scrooge but not as miserable or miserly. I thought, what if there were a few ghosts of Christmas past haunting her; a few events that she couldn’t quite get over? Then I added a very positive spirit of Christmas present – to help her learn to love the festive season – in the hunky form of Dale.
