I grew up in Croydon and spent my teenage years in a convent girls' school. I then fled to university where I discovered champagne cocktails, a capella singing and erotica.
These days I blog about perceptions of romance, chick lit and women in society and spend an extraordinary amount of time coercing male friends to pose with my favourite Mills & Boon books to the bemusement of the Twittersphere. Genre reporter for chick lit and erotica at For Books' Sake, and guest blogger for Mills & Boon, I defy you to slam romance novels within my hearing!

Jo Leigh's One Wicked Night - my first ever Mills & Boon - and any book that makes me cry.;
"Interestingly, at the IASPR conference, there was an academic paper on paratexts and romance (paratexts being the blurb, cover, title, acknowledgements intros etc - essentially anything that isn't the actual story).
It was highlighting how romance readers have a very specific understanding of these paratexts, and how just by looking at a cover or a title, they can immediately understand what the book itself is going to be like!!"

Lost in Romance #18 - It’s what’s inside that counts…isn’t it?
"Within romance? I'm split with modern romances (sexy, sassy, with a modern feel) and good, well-written erotica. Exciting times. :)"
My favourite genre is?
"It's all about seclusion. My ideal place would be the tiny village in Italy, where my grandmother grew up. It's isolated and romantic and in the middle of the mountains near a natural lake. We go swimming, have long romantic walks by starlight and eat the best food I've ever tasted.
Plus, all that time alone can only end well... ;)"
