Author and sometimes foodie, Belinda is a ridiculous romantic who met her husband after being set up by a friend two states away.

Residing in country Victoria, surrounded by books, cat-fur, and half-eaten cake, Belinda divides her days between writing rom-coms, baking, and indulging her love of comic books.

Hey Jess,
Thank you so much!

I've had a ball not only writing Red, but also wrapping him up and sending him out into the world.

And thank you for taking the time to leave honest feedback, I appreciate it greatly. It always gives me something to think about and to learn from as I move into Red2. That pesky Emmy, we might have to give her some concrete next time!

I'm really glad that you enjoyed the book, and hope you look for my future releases.

Much love,
B. xo(less)

Topics Mentioning This Author

Ford Madox Ford
“You seduced a young woman in order to be able to finish your talks with her. You could not do that without living with her. You could not live with her without seducing her; but that was the by-product. The point is that you can't otherwise talk. You can't finish talks at street corners; in museums; even in drawing-rooms. You mayn't be in the mood when she is in the mood – for the intimate conversation that means the final communion of your souls. You have to wait together – for a week, for a year, for a lifetime, before the final intimate conversation may be attained...and exhausted. So that...

That in effect was love.”
Ford Madox Ford, Parade's End

“Higher than the beasts, lower than the angels, stuck in our idiot Eden.”
Ford Madox Ford, Parade's End

Simon Pegg
“Being a geek is all about being honest about what you enjoy and not being afraid to demonstrate that affection. It means never having to play it cool about how much you like something. It’s basically a license to proudly emote on a somewhat childish level rather than behave like a supposed adult. Being a geek is extremely liberating.”
Simon Pegg

Ford Madox Ford
“The war had made a man of him! It had coarsened him and hardened him. There was no other way to look at it. It had made him reach a point at which he would no longer stand unbearable things.”
Ford Madox Ford, Parade's End
