“Honey, it’s always crap. Every book I write is crap. It’s my job to fix the crap afterwards,” according to Nora Roberts. Well, I've got it half right. Still working on the "fixing it" part. "Trust your characters to be complex enough and to have enough emotional baggage. Force them to make hard choices." Advice from Michelle Styles that might help!

… called Don’t Judge a Book by It’s Cover  just out in Living North magazine.

I adore Michelle, though I’ve never met her! She’s a fab writer, a great ambassador for Mills and Boon in particular and romance writing in general.

The one surprise in the article- I never knew she was American! I’d always assumed she was from the North of England where she now lives. People in that region are reputed to be warm, practical, but also direct and not the type to suffer fools gladly. Michelle is a support to many unpublished writers, dispensing to the point and wise advice, that fits perfectly with that North Country image!
