Below is a Q&A with this author.

How would you describe your novel ‘Angels in the Snow’?
An uplifting Christmas story about family, friendship and finding love.

What gave you the inspiration for the story?
I thought it would be fun to write a story about a single guy determined never to have kids who finds himself looking after two of them for Christmas. It was obvious that nothing short of a blood bond would induce him to take on someone else’s children, so that’s when I came up with the idea of writing a story about two brothers. As I explored the idea further I decided that the two main characters, Daniel and Patrick, would both be carrying baggage from their childhood. Both witnessed their parents’ difficult, explosive relationship but whereas Daniel emerged into adulthood determined to avoid marriage at all costs, Patrick wants to create the stable family he never had.

Who do you base your characters on?
Each of my characters is unique. My aim is to make them ‘real’, so they need to have their individual strengths and flaws just like any other person. When I’m developing the character I think about personality traits that will strengthen the internal conflict and add layers of emotion to the story.

From where do you get your ideas?
Ideas are everywhere, the skill is turning those ideas into a story that will keep a reader turning the pages long after they should have gone to sleep. When I’m playing with ideas at the beginning of a book, my first thoughts often originate from something I’ve read or overheard in conversation. Sometimes I start by thinking of an interesting character and then I’ll put them into a difficult situation. Sometimes I ask myself the ‘what if?’ question to stimulate ideas.

What are you writing next?
I’m writing a contemporary romance for a miniseries called 21st Century Bosses – featuring impossible, infuriating…yet utterly irresistible boss’s! It features a modern, self sufficient woman juggling a million things in her life who finds herself with a new boss when her company is taken over.
