Describe yourself in three words:

Bubbly, dippy, chocoholic.

Tell us a little about your latest release:
Never Say Forever
Do you follow your dream or follow your heart?
That’s the decision Kendall McKenzie has to make when she meets hunky businessman Jake Newman. It’s obvious that he’s as attracted to her as she is to him. But Kendall has vowed to never get married – and it seems that Jake, too, is determined to never commit. When the two are together however sparks fly and it’s obvious to everyone except themselves that they’re meant to be together. Can Kendall trust Jake enough to give him her heart? And if she does will she have to say goodbye to her dream?

The idea of this story was triggered of by thinking about what would happen if two career-driven people who were determined not to get married met and fell in love. Would they follow their heart or their career?

What is your earliest memory?

My earliest memory is of climbing a fence with my two brothers when I was about five. As I climbed over the top I slipped and my ankle sock got caught on the wire. I was dangling up side down by my ankle when my mum rescued me, much to the amusement of my brothers and their friends. It pretty much set the pattern for the rest of my life, I'm always doing something dippy.

What would you consider the greatest moment in your life?

There have been so many great moments, when my four daughters were born, marrying my lovely husband Dave two years ago but I think my most memorable was passing my driving test. I thought I'd never do it and made the examiner repeat it three times before I'd believe I passed.

What’s the hardest thing in in life you’ve done?

Passed my driving test. It took me years, countless driving instructors, far too much money and  17 attempts. I finally passed in 2013.

What have you learned in life so far?

Be kind  and choose your arguments. People get het up over things that don't really matter.

Everyone’s favourite question: if you could invite five people for dinner, who would it be?

Julie Walters, Piers Morgan, Simon Cowell, Joanna Lumley and Meryl Streep. I think they'd be an entertaining bunch.
