My name is Sarah, and I’m a romance-a-holic.
Phew… ‘Fessing up to my addiction is extremely liberating – and as an editor at Mills & Boon, I can fully indulge my passion. I spend my days feverishly reading submissions, helping authors to plot out storylines and develop their characters, keeping an eagle-eye open for fresh talent, and doing everything I can to spread the word about our wonderful books. I’m very lucky to work on all the main Mills & Boon series – from the glamorous world of Modern to the sexiness of Modern Tempted, the dishy docs of Medical to the delicious alpha males of Historical – I get a taste of every delight Mills & Boon has to offer! I can currently be found atop the giddy Heights of Paradise, but I originally hail from Derbyshire – the home of heart-wrenching natural beauty, out-of-this world country estates and castles, a chocolate factory and dreamy Mr Darcy. It’s no wonder I’m so hooked on romance…
In this column I’m keen to share my love of romance with you, the readers, and give you an exclusive insight into what we editors get up to here at Paradise Heights. Every week, I will be logging on to bring you the latest editorial news from the Mills & Boon series – new titles, competitions, linked books, and more. I will also be giving you the editor’s perspective on what’s going on the land of romance – whether it’s a Hollywood blockbuster that’s got everyone talking, hot new trends in romance fiction, or the latest celebrity wedding – we will be dissecting and digesting all things romance. And I’ll be gathering your thoughts and opinions on anything and everything under the Romance sun – from your views on your favourite stories to your ideas about what makes the perfect hero.
So don’t forget to log in every Thursday to feed your habit – and join me in keeping the rose of romance a-bloom!
