Today I’m having tea with gorgeous Australian author, Ann B Harrison and we’re talking about the release of her new book, Outback in Stilettos.
Before she tells us more about the story, let’s see how she answers the questions 🙂
- Tea or wine?
Definitely tea for me.
- Read or jog?
Can’t I do both?
- Cats or dogs?
I have three dogs so I guess that’s easy to answer, dogs.
- Heels or flats? F
Flats. Heels are not my friends, trust me on this one.
- Boxers or briefs?
- Milk, dark or white chocolate?
I prefer dark but can be tempted to stretch my taste buds.
- Sweet or savoury?
Savoury – my fav snack is cheese.
- Sea or mountains?
Mountains, I prefer my greenery.
B. Five likes and five dislikes
I like writing (obviously), gardening, reading, cooking, travel (including camping) and spending time with family.
I hate being cold, broken sleep, door to door salespeople, running out of tea, not having a deadline.
C. Three things on your bucket list:
A cruise trip with DH on a small boat through France to see Monet’s Garden, camping in Tasmanian and seeing men in kilts in their own habitat!
D. What triggered this specific story?
I’ve always loved the difference between city and country characters. The thought of taking a city dweller who relies on modern appliances, hates dirt and can’t cook and throwing them into a tough country situation resonated with me. (I can be cruel when I want to be) It was fun to throw Delilah into tricky situations and see how she dealt with them.
The most popular soap on television hangs in the balance because Delilah Connors has lost her mojo. Her agent decides she needs a break.
Delilah disagrees but when her agent says jump, she jumps! She heads for the outback on a bus tour from hell. The coach smells, her seating partner is an octopus and the road leads nowhere she wants to go. It’s all too much.
She grabs her bags and hits the track. The trouble is the track leads to two small children and a widowed farmer. The kids are cute but not cute enough to compensate for an archaic kitchen and the filthy flies. Just when she’s getting the hang of the outback, the flies and that sexy farmer she’s summoned back to the big smoke.
Blake makes a last ditch attempt to plead his case but amongst the glitter and glamour of the Sydney film elite, he is way out of his depth.
