Meet Our New LoveCat!
There's a new LoveCat on the prowl! We're absolutely thrilled to announce that lovely Helen Lacey is joining us. So today we're having a party and you're all invited to celebrate with us! And we're giving away a prize pack of LoveCat books to one of our commenters!
So come on in, grab a glass of cyber-champers, pull up a comfy chair and read the scoop on Helen!
We sent Helen a list of probing questions just for fun!
Helen, over to you!
I’m a horse girl! The first book I wrote when I was seven years old was about a horse – and they still turn up in my books. In my January release, Made For Marriage, my heroine is a horse riding instructor, so I’m never really far from writing about what I love. I got my first horse when I was twelve and they have been a part of my life ever since. Now days, my DH and I own eight horses of varying sizes and ages and I love the time I spend with them every afternoon. It’s my down time away from the computer, where I get to relax and be outside. But I adore dogs too! As well as the horses I have three dogs, three birds and a house cow named Ginger.
Favourite mythical animal
Pegasus! When I was a kid I had dreams of riding amongst the clouds. Although I do own an 18hh Thoroughbred called Zeb, so my head does get fairly high up when I ride him.
Your own Catwalk candidate
This is Barney – my two year old Dogue De Bordeaux (Remember Turner and Hooch?) He’s 70kgs and adorable. He has juicy jowls and a big smile and loves riding in the car.
First category book you read
There were two category books. I was twelve years old when I read Rosalind Brett’s Winds Of Enchantment and Robyn Donald’s Bride At Whangatapu. I read them in the same day and got swept away. When I was done I knew that I wanted to write romance. I can’t tell you what a thrill it was actually meeting Robyn many years later.
Last great category book you read
I recently read When One Night Isn’t Enough by Wendy S Marcus and it was fabulous.
Something we wouldn't know about you?
I’m a Trekkie. I’ve watched the latest Star Trek movie 11 times. And I think Jean Luc Picard is one of the sexiest heroes ever.
Helen's debut book, Made For marriage, is a Harlequin Special Edition and is out in January 2012
So today we're asking, what animal do you relate to most?
And to celebrate Helen joining us on the blog, we've got a book prize pack for one of our commentors!
