Lily Dunn, the talented author of the book Shadowing The Sun, has invited me on a Book Blog Hop. For this, writers answer ten set questions about their work in progress and tag other writers to do the same.
What is the title of your next book?
Night School: Fracture
Where did the idea come from for the book?
The Night School series was inspired by reading about the Bullingdon Club at Oxford, which has among its members, prime ministers, MPs, cabinet secretaries, an endless array of banking executives, media executives, corporate executives, dukes, barons and kings. Many of the people who run this country are members of this group.
I’ve always been fascinated by British boarding schools, so I decided to combine these two things, and Night School was the result.
What genre does your book fall under?
It is a young adult romantic thriller.
What actors would you choose to play the part of your characters in a movie rendition?
I think Ymanol Perset would make an amazing Sylvain. Just look at those cheekbones.
Juno Temple would make a great Eloise.
What is a one sentence synopsis of your book?
When everyone lies to you, who do you trust?
Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?
How long did it take you to write the first draft of the manuscript?
What other books would you compare yours to?
I don’t know! I’d have to ask my readers. What books do YOU think Night School is like?
Who or what inspired you to write this book?
Boredom. I was working as a website editor for the government and I needed something to do to stimulate my calcifying brain.
What else about the book might pique the reader’s interest?
None of my characters is safe.
