Author Interview With Carlie Pettit

Today I have had the pleasure of the lovely Carlie Pettit on my blog today for an author interview.
Carlie's debut book MATCHES is out right now!

Love authors like Jilly Cooper, Tasmina Perry & Jackie Collins..are going to love MATCHES too!

Hi Carlie, Thank you for
 popping on my blog..

Q) Can you tell us a little bit about your debut book MATCHES?
Victoria is broken, lost and neglected. Her philandering older husband, Ralph, has spiralled out of control. The multimillionaire tycoon is on a journey of self-destruction, destroying everything in his way.
Ultra-cool Kim doesn’t do love – until she meets Omar. But her unconventional arrangement and a dark secret, turns her world upside down.
James is naive, and too nice for his own good. Married to the neurotic and psychopathic Amanda, who will stop at nothing to satisfy her desire to destroy Victoria, taking all that she has.
From mansions in Wimbledon Village, exclusive parties in Mayfair, to penthouses in Knightsbridge and first class travel across the world. Matches sizzles with passion, jealousy, greed, betrayal, sexual hedonism and secrets. Dramatic events rock their moral compasses. Explosive living leaves many wounded. Their decisions and actions will dictate who can forgive and who will get out alive. . .

Q) What inspired you to start writing?
I LOVE writing, and I have a very vivid imagination. It was round about this time, two years ago, that I woke up and told myself; ‘I am going to write a book.’ And that is what I did. I wrote, and wrote, and wrote. I’m not the sort of person who can do a 9-5 job. I needed something which I could do, anytime day or night. And wherever I am. Preferably in a hot, exotic location, sipping something ice cold and bubbly. . . MATCHES has delivered on all of these things, but I didn’t realise how hard you have to work. Writing is not for the feint hearted!

Q) What is your favourite book of all time?
That’s such a tough question!!! I love books that are compelling, pacy, engaging, not too descriptive. I guess I don’t have an all-time favourite, as my tastes change with my moods.

Q) Who are your target readers?
Those who are looking for a pacy, dramatic page turner. Readers who love: James Patterson, Jilly Cooper, Jackie Collins, Tilly Bagshawe and Tasmina Perry.

Q) Did you ever think you’d ever become an author?
Not until I was 23. Then I discovered it was the ONLY thing that I wanted to be.

Q) What genre do you like to read?
I like all genres, I really do. It totally depends on my mood and where I am.

Q) Do you prefer paperback or Kindle?
I love them both. No preference.

About The Author.
When I’m not writing a sizzling novel, you can find me sipping a freezing cold flute of champagne in an exotic, preferably hot location. Or eating in some of the finest restaurants in my beloved London. At all other times, I am either shopping, reading, watching box sets, or taking long strolls on Wimbledon Common with the love of my life.

Very excited to read Matches!!
