Romancing September Across the World – Day 30 Lane Linfoot

7 Comments

Welcome to Day 30 of the 2nd Annual Romancing September Across The World Blog Tour. I’ve teamed up with Rosie Amber again this year. We’re promoting 30 awesome romance authors in 30 days. Help us out by cross promoting when you can and check out these authors.

Don’t forget to go over to Rosie Amber’s page and check out her page too.

Today my guest author is Jane Linfoot and I want to thank her for blogging with me today. Here is a little about her and her book High Heels & Bicycle Wheels.

High Heels and Bicycle Wheels Jane Linfoot

What inspired you to write this book?

Bryony marched on to the page fully formed in The Right Side of Mr Wrong, and after I finished that book she refused to go away until I’d given her a story of her own.

I love watching pro cycling, and I’m fascinated by the mindset of the top riders, who have super-human strength both mentally and physically. One day at a cycle race and I saw a young blonde TV presenter interviewing a top cyclist. I immediately thought Yay! this is Bryony’s story! A pro cyclist would be a perfect match for her own strength. I admit that I drew a lot on my own tandem riding experiences for the part where Bryony rides a tandem with Jackson. We both do a lot of screaming going downhill.

What’s your favourite part of this book and why?

I love the way Bryony and Jackson have a complete clash of wills at the same time as being hugely attracted to each other. And I particularly love the end of the book.

 What is your philosophy on writing and life? 

In life it’s very important to me to be happy every day. I tend to find humour in most situations, and I guess this passes through into my writing. I’m lucky because I hate giving up, and that’s a great trait for a writer to have.

If you had to give one piece of advice what would it be?

If you’re an aspiring writer, believe in yourself, remember it’s very important to find the right home for you and your work, and never give up.

Jane Linfoot Author Bio 1.

I’m Jane Linfoot, and I write fun, flirty fiction, with feisty heroines and a bit of an edge.

I live in a mountain kingdom in Derbyshire, England, where my family and pets are kind enough to ignore the domestic chaos – happily, we’re in walking distance of a supermarket. For me, writing romance is cool because I get to wear pretty shoes instead of wellies. I love hearts, flowers, happy endings, all things vintage, most things french. When I’m not on facebook, and can’t find an excuse for shopping, I’ll be walking, or gardening. On days when I want to be really scared, I ride a tandem.

 High Heels & Bicycle Wheels

 Meet Bryony: She’s a fun-loving, very single TV production assistant whose idea of sport is the Jimmy Choo sales scrum

Meet Jackson: Cycling’s bad boy superstar. Injured and out of racing this summer, without his training he’s looking for another distraction.

Bryony’s facing a triple whammy – her last single friend just named the day, her mother’s offering to have her eggs frozen, and the guy she’s loved from afar, forever, just got hitched. So she’s more than happy to accept the offer of a totally out of character but seriously steamy one night of no-strings fun. Especially when the guy in question is so attractive he even looks good in Lycra!

Jackson’s on the look out for a new career but if the opportunity to work on TV means a fortnight with the most uptight woman in the world, he’d rather not bother. He never goes in for seconds – and who in their right mind would head off in a camper van with a woman who irons her knickers?

Add in a tandem (yes, a tandem) and fast forward to double trouble for a summer neither of them will ever forget!
