    Another interesting and informative interview, thanks Morgen and Sheryl.

    It is important to do research and not leave the door open for the reader to find fault. It happens to even well known authors – I have discovered inaccurate information and from that point on, the book has been ruined.

    I try my hand a comedy, not romance as in relationships, but sometimes they have a romance about them if you see what i mean. I find it easy to write, though my main genre is crime. I saw one of your other interviewees put the two together Morgen – must be a common denominator there somewhere!

    I understand how you need to write the funny side of a sometimes sad or tragic situation and that you want your reader to laugh with you Sheryl. You must be doing this extremely well given your success to date. Social Networking sites no doubt making marketing your work that much easier and hands-on. I would not have come across you otherwise.

    Wishing you lots of success and thanks again for sharing your story with us. So enjoyable to find out more about you.

    Thank you so much, Jane! And, yes, I do see what you mean. My own ‘thriller’ writing centres around families, the central theme/s being families in peril, which means that relationships are under threat or pressure, so there is an amount of romance in there to a degree. I wouldn’t call them romantic suspense though. A new genre?!! I doubt it. 😉 I do see that certain genres cross over though.

    And thank you, Morgen, for the fabulous interview! Sorry to arrive so late. A work day. Not strictly scheduled. Unfortunately, crisis dictated. Who would ever be self-employed?

    About those books under consideration, btw ~ all contracted now!! Tah-dah! Brilliant. Loads of editing to do, no doubt, but do you know what, I can’t wait to get back in touch with my characters!

      Yay! You’re so welcome, Sheryl.

      I’m trying to get self-employed but my replacements keep quitting! 😦 Another lined up for next week… I don’t want to be irreplaceable for ever. 🙂

    What a terrific and detailed interview! Great questions, Morgen, I love that you go into so much depth and it feels like you two sat chatting over a cup of tea (or a glass of wine?). Fabulous feature. And Sheryl–delighted to get confirmation that the lovable Rambo of Recipe for Disaster is in fact your much loved OAP dog. Love it! Thanks for sharing all that detail, I feel like I know you even better now. Congrats, both! 🙂

      Thank you, Nicky. If you have a spare month, there are 295 (as 296 went up this morning) to choose from. https://morgenbailey.wordpress.com/blog-interviews 🙂

      I’m really boring – it’s tea for me every time. Oh well, occasionally I splurge (hot chocolate).

      Thank you again for your lovely comment.

        Oooooh…. am I reading this right? May I come and take part?? That would be lovely! XX Tea is fine, and hot chocolate is great, too. That’s not boring at all! X Let me know if I got the right end of the stick… 🙂

        Half right, I think. Sheryl’s book signing has been and gone (last night) but there’s loads (now 296 plus Sheryl’s) interviews on the blog to read and you’d be welcome to take part in one yourself. I can send you the info. pack. Dang it, you write, I’ll send it anyway. 🙂

        Bless you! Thanks so much–I look forward to it, and apologies if I got my wires crossed. But… tee hee, if it opens, perhaps the occasional crossed wire isn’t such a bad thing! XX Have a good weekend. 🙂

    Thanks so much, Nicky. Morgen and I did indeed have a good old chat, tonight, over carrot cake and coffee! 🙂 xx

      Or hot chocolate, in my case. 🙂 Definitely motivated (as if I needed a nudge) to go to more live events.

      Thank you Linn, and thank you for the retweet on Twitter. We’re having an intimate soiree but you’d welcome to join us, especially if accompanied by Banoffee Pie. 🙂

    Great questions and interesting answers. Congratulations on your success with ‘Recipes’ Sheryl – which is on my Kindle and I can’t wait to read it. Delighted to have discovered your fab blog, Morgen!

      I’m delighted you have too, Janice. Thank you for commenting. 🙂 And I have ‘Recipes’ in paperback so that makes two of us too. 🙂

      It is good, isn’t it? I really do not know how Morgen fits it all in – and manages to make it all so entertaining and interesting. Just so you know, if Morgen adds ‘available to support author talks’ to her list, I’m first on that list. 🙂

    Nor do I, Sheryl 🙂

    Think I may just have to add that ID to my ‘Writer for hire’ page…
