Back in January Prima magazine launched our Flirty Fiction writing competition to win a publishing contract. After hundreds of entries our panel of judges have managed the difficult task of deciding on an exciting shortlist. In the weeks running up to the announcing the winner, we thought you might like to know a little more about each of the shortlisted authors.
What is your story called?
The Captain’s House
Can you tell us about your story?
A romance centred around a mysterious Captain’s House.
What do you do?
I have an administrative role in an office in London, two days a week, as well as being a busy mother of two.
Where do you live?
I live in a small village just outside Sevenoaks, Kent.
Have you ever written anything before?
No, but I have had the Captain’s House in my head for years!
When did you read your first Mills & Boon?
As a teenager.
Who is your favourite Mills & Boon author and why?
Sarah Morgan, as she writes a lovely Christmas story. I love a bit of romance at Christmas! I am also guilty of choosing a book by its cover….
What would you do if you won?
Scream a lot, run around in circles and then sit down with a cup of tea and very large slice of chocolate cake and panic!
The winner and the first chapter of their book will be exclusively revealed in the August issue of Prima magazine available from 3 July 2015.
