I’m delighted to welcome Fiona Harper to the author interview hot seat today. Fiona writes funny, heart-warming romances for Mills and Boon. Her first novel won the RNA’s Joan Hessayon New Writers Award and since then her books have gone on to win numerous other awards.
Fiona, please tell us how you sold your first book, and if you had any rejections before getting that exciting call?
Where is your favourite place to work?
To plot or not to plot? Are you a planner or do you just dive in?
What is the hardest part of the writing process for you?
What do you think an editor is looking for in a good novel?
How do you relax? What interests do you have other than writing?
Do you ever suffer from writer’s block? If so, how do you cope with it?
In what way has the RNA helped you or your career?
Is there a particular period of history that you enjoy writing about? Why is that?
