Helen’s books seem to be coming thick and fast as I am sure it wasn’t that long ago the Strictly on Ice was released. So when I saw the next book in her “in the spotlight” series I just had to get her to sit down with me again for a chat.
Which book do you wish you’d written.
The Goldfinch, by Donna Tartt. It’s so beautifully written.
Which book cover have you looked at and gone that’s amazing.
My new novel, Celebrity SOS! I absolutely love the cover ChocLit designed.
Which book character/s would you protect from the world?
Kiara from my first novel, Star in the Shadows.
Which was the last book that broke your heart.
A million dreams, by Dani Atkins. I cried buckets reading it, especially as it’s about IVF and both my boys are the result of fertility treatment.
Which book would you make your child/ren read.
Anything by Roald Dahl.
Which book would you rewrite in a different genre.
It would be fun to do a modern take on Jane Eyre
If you could write any genre which one would it be?
Psychological thrillers. I love reading them but I don’t think I could write one
Which book taught you the largest lesson about life.
I’ve learnt so much from books that it’s hard to single out just one. Jacqueline Wilson books taught me a lot about life, family, and friendship when I was younger.
Which three books would you take on holiday in 2021?
Q, by Christina Dalcher
The Push, Ashley Audrain
A sky full of stars, Dani Atkins
And of course I would fill up my Kindle with lots of ChocLit goodies too!
I’m a celebrity … trying to escape the past!
When Katerina Murphy agrees to take part in Celebrity SOS, a reality TV show where celebrities have to fend for themselves in the Alaskan wilderness, she’s up for the challenge. But then she locks eyes with fellow contestant Finn Drayson of 1Dream boy band fame and realises that the show is going to push her further from her comfort zone than she ever imagined.
After all, Finn wasn’t just Katerina’s co-star in the school play adaptation of Breakfast at Tiffany’s where she discovered her acting confidence, he was also her first love – and the first boy to break her heart. Even years later, the secret kisses and shared packets of crisps on park benches are never far from her mind.
Will award-winning actress Katerina Murphy’s talents stretch to staying composed in the face of Arctic winds and blasts from the past?
