What’s the earliest memory you have of writing a story?
I wrote many stories at school. I remember a series of naive tales on what I would doing at 20/30/40 years old and so on. I was famous and my hair never went grey. Oh, the innocence of youth.
What is your least favorite part of the writing process?
Mid-droop plot. I suffer it every story. I enthusiastically start, then midway I seem to lose the plot - and the will to live.
What is your most favorite part of the writing process?
That first initial spark of an idea that takes root and develops into something bigger and then the voices start in my head. Yes, yes, I am allowed voices. I'm an author *nods*.
Tell us a bit about why you decided to set a story in England?
Uh, I live here? Somewhere along the way I decided I'd like to write books set in my world. It doesn't stop me basing books elsewhere but it's a lot easier for me to write in Brit.
Your book is the second in the Left At The Crossroads series, what was the inspiration for this series?
I wanted to write a series set in the English countryside and as it happens, my friend and author, Lisa Worrall was writing a story based in a village. Happy coincidence. The poor girl had to wait for me to get over the year from hell before my story was finished though. She is very patient.
Thank you so much for visiting today!
Thank you for inviting me, RJ.
Left at the Crossroads series: #1 Un-Expected by Lisa Worrall
Little Mowbury is a sleepy English village deep in the Cotswolds. The kind of village where you’re only a local if your lineage can be traced back to the dinosaurs. Where you can find everything in the single village shop from morning newspapers to dry-cleaning, and getting your shoes mended. And, of course, where everybody knows everybody else’s business. It’s easy to find… you can’t miss it… just ask anyone and they’ll tell you… “It’s left at the crossroads.”
Eighteen months ago Jason Havers lost the love of his life and it's time to move on. Applying for the position of chef in a sleepy country pub, a million miles away from his previous life, may well be the fresh start he needs. His new employers immediately take him under their wing and before long he finds himself with a passel of new friends and a job he loves. What he doesn’t expect is Tom, a gorgeous midwife, who stirs up feelings he’s not ready to deal with.

Sue Brown is owned by her dog and two children. When she isn't following their orders, she be found haunting coffee shops to feed her coffee addiction. She spends hours people-watching instead of typing. She feeds the plot bunnies, not the word count.
Sue discovered M/M erotica at the time she woke up to find two men kissing on her favorite television series. The series was boring; the kissing was not. She may be late to the party, but she's made up for it since, writing fan fiction until she was brave enough to venture out into the world of original fiction
