I have the honour of hosting a really lovely writer on my blog today. Her name is Charlotte Howard and below is a quick question & answer session we shared recently. Read on and learn more about Charlotte and her writing. Links to connect with her and to buy her books are at the end of the interview.
Charlotte Howard: Hi! I’m Charlotte, I live in Somerset with my husband, two children, and growing menagerie of animals, and I spend my days writing and drinking tea. I currently have 5 published books (4 novels and a novella), with 1 more coming out soon.
MB: What genres do you like to write in?
CH: Erotic and Contemporary Romance. Although I’d like to write something within the genres of paranormal / fantasy.
MB: What is the title of your latest book, (tell us a bit about it)?
CH: The Final Straight is a hot contemporary romance that tells the story of April and Max, best-friends who are madly in love, but won’t admit it. Until AJ, April’s ex comes back onto the scene that is. It’s a classic love triangle, with steamy sex scenes, all set in the equestrian industry.
MB: What are you currently working on?
CH: I have a new book – Taking Care of Leah – coming out in June, and Four Letter Words (part two of the Words Duet) is also being released in the same month, so I’ve been taking a bit of a break from writing. However, I always have at least one work-in-progress, and the one I’m working on at the moment is a typical billionaire erotic romance.
MB: When and where do you like to write? Have you a favourite place?
CH: I tend to write on my laptop in the front room with the TV on. I can’t work in complete silence; I need background noise. I also have to have a cup of tea next to me.
CH: Not yet! I still don’t think of myself as a writer, even though I’ve been self-employed as one since 2008 when I started freelancing. Every now and then I have a brief moment, like when I was on BBC Radio Somerset after Seven Dirty Words was first released, or when I was featured in Writing Magazine and the local paper. However, I don’t think I’ll truly feel like I’ve made it until I’ve been on the Sunday Times best sellers list. (Soon hopefully!)
MB: What is next for you?
CH: At the moment, actually starting my latest WIP. I’d like to create a pen name and write a fantasy series – I have something in mind, but just can’t get it written.
MB: Many thanks Charlotte for joining me and sharing with us all about your books.
