I live in New Zealand where us lucky folk can have sun, surf and snow within the day. I’m not a huge snow person -it’s pretty and all but it’s cold! I love the beach – why be cold when you can be hot! Living on an island, the coast is never very far away, and so I’ve grown up in and around the ocean (and my boys are following in my footsteps). I’ve also done a whole heap of traveling, so when I was asked to write a destination romantic comedy, one of the fun parts was choosing where to set it. I settled on Thailand for Her Scottish Mistake, because it’s a veritable melting pot of sights, sounds and tastes. Temples, wildlife, beaches, island, and ah-mazing food, you can get it all there, along with a hefty dose of sunshine.
It got me thinking what would the ABC’s of my holiday planning be. You know, A for Amazing sunsets, B for beaches and C for cocktails. I’m running a poll on my street team at the moment, and while there are definitely a few in my sunshine cocktail camp, there are plenty in the more urban end of the scale. A for Absinth, B for Bars and C for Christian Louboutins? I’d love to know what you think.

She put a finger over his lips. “Putting words to it will break the spell. It’s a golden thing right now. Try to name it and it will run away.”
