Blog Bites with Rachel Johns

   She’s a rising star in romance fiction and a pleasure to introduce today.  Rachel Johns, take it away!

 I write: Romantic Fiction – Red Dust to Big Smoke

 I’m from: England, but haven’t lived there since I was 18 months old

 Three words to describe me: Happy, Optimistic, Loud

 At home I cook: boring food because my kids are fussy britches

 My worst habit is: picking the dry skin off my feet (hey, I’m being honest)

 It’s a bit daggy but I love: My crocs

 My first job was: checkout chick at Kmart

 My day job is:  supermarket dogsbody

Saving for: a new house

I procrastinate by: surfing the net – Twitter, Facebook, Good Reads

Three things people might not know about me are:

  • I didn’t meet my dad till I was seventeen
  •  I was once an extra on a TV ad
  •  I love cats.

Favourite author: Only one? ARGH!! Lisa Jewell, if I must choose. 

Current reading: The Road Home by Fiona Palmer

Favourite book as a child: The whole Babysitter’s Club series

Favourite movie: Love Actually

Plotter or panster: Bit of both.

I would most like to meet: My nieces and nephews of half brothers and sisters who live in England.

 When I was young I wanted to be: An actress, so I wrote about one instead.

Why I write: Because I can’t helpt it.

Latest project: MAN DROUGHT – a semi-rural romance about a farmer, a widow and a small town pub!
