Nas: Why do you write Medicals?
Anne:I trained as a nurse and as my husband is a doctor it seemed the obvious choice for me. I already had loads of scenarios in my head.
I also remember when I was in Africa driving along this almost deserted road edged by re clay hills and veld and imagining out of the blue, this woman walking alongside the road. I had no idea what she was doing there or where she was going but she eventually became the heroine of Her Very Special Boss.
Nas: What made you chose the genre?
Anne:The thing I particularly love about writing medicals is that you can put your characters in really rough situations and see how they react with each other to produce their happy ever after. It seems that no topic is totally out of bounds in medicals as long as it adds to the story. This is true of any of the series but probably more so in medicals. I use the medical scenarios to reinforce the conflicts the characters are having to deal with.
Anne:It's a while now since I actually nursed so I'm fortunate in having my husband to keep me up to date with medical information. I worked in an IVF unit (now that is a field that is changing so fast!) and happily they are prepared to answer my questions. My daughter is medical student so hopefully she'll be able to help too in a year or two. As I like to ensure the medical detail is a hundred percent accurate, I know I'd find it difficult to write medical romances without this help.
Anne:Just about anywhere. People who know me already know I love travelling. I have been to loads of places but still have so many on my wish list. Right now my list includes India, Croatia, the east coast of America and China. If anyone's going someplace and they need a companion, I usually say yes!
Nas: Tell us about your latest ......
Anne:My latest US release is St Piran's:Daredevil, Doctor ...Dad , although it was released in the UK last year. (I'm not sure why there are these long delays between publishing a book in the UK then publishing it in the US.) Daredevil, Doctor...Dad is part of the St Piran's series and is set in Cornwall. Abby who is caring for her dead sister's child, Emma, has been trying to track down Emma's father for years. All she has is a photo and a name- Mac. She is stunned to find that Mac, a risk taker doctor, and not exactly father material is also working with the Royal Cornwall Air Ambulance Team. Can Mac convince Abby he os more than a playboy doctor?
