I was told off as a child for making up stories—little did I know that one day I’d earn my living by writing them!

To the horror of my parents, I left school at sixteen and held a bewildering variety of jobs: I was a London DJ (in the now-trendy Primrose Hill), a decorator and a singer. After that I became a cook, a photographer and, eventually, a nurse. I waitressed in the south of France, drove an ambulance in Australia, saw lots of beautiful sights but could never settle down. Everywhere I went I felt like a square peg—until one day I started writing again and then everything just fell into place. I felt like Cinderella must have when the glass slipper fit!

Today, I have the best job in the world, writing passionate romances for Harlequin.


"Where do you get your inspiration from?"

I get it wherever I can find it.  On a train, a bus, a plane.  Eavesdropping is the writer's greatest ally, that and watching people's faces when they think are unobserved.  My daughter is always saying, "Stop staring, mum!"

Of course, other times - I just let the sheer other-worldliness of a place soak into my skin.  For a while I live a completely differen Read more of this blog post »

Stunning book, exquisitely written. Coelho is a master at getting inside the mind of a woman. It's a fairy story about a prostitute, a series of parables which make you smile - and some fairly graphic and provocative sexual exploration.

“Because Christmas did something to the world at large and to individuals in particular. It crystallized all your hopes and fears. It made you yearn and wish and dream. And no matter how hard you tried—it made you realize all the things you were missing in life.”
Sharon Kendrick, The Italian Billionaire's Secretary Mistress

“If you don’t like your appearance, then change it, but don’t keep doing nothing and then complaining about it, because it’s boring.'
- Luis Martinez to Carly Conner
Sharon Kendrick, The Housekeeper's Awakening

“Her big green eyes drove all conventional greetings clean out of his mind. Oh, what the hell? he thought savagely, and bent his head to kiss her.
‘G-Giovanni!’ The suitcase fell uselessly from her hand and her fingertips went straight up to his shoulders, biting into the sensually scented leather with an abandon which gathered momentum with each thrust of his tongue as he kissed her with shameless abandon.”
Sharon Kendrick, The Sicilian's Passion
