Good morning everyone! I want to welcome you to the 2nd part of Day 5 of the 3rd Annual Romancing September Across the World Blog Tour. If you haven’t checked out Rosie’s post from earlier, then go by https://rosieamber.wordpress.com/ and get caught up.
Now on to today’s featured author, Georgina Troy
Here’s the question I asked:
What has been the biggest inspiration for your writing?
My love of the island where I live, most probably. Jersey is very pretty and although the island is only nine by five miles in size there is a huge social buzz in the island with a lot happening here like boat shows, the Battle of Flowers, an annual air show, Jersey Live/Groove de Lecq/Folklore music festivals and this year at the end of September the island is holding its first literary festival where I’ve been asked to give a talk, I can’t wait. We’ve also got our very own local hero, Superman. Well, the actor Henry Cavill is from the island and comes back often. I’ve seen him walking through town and my sister met him when she was out with a friend recently. (He’s very similar in looks to Sebastian Fielding, the hero in my second book, A Jersey Affair).
Here’s a little bit about today’s author:
Georgina Troy lives in Jersey, an island fifteen miles off the coast of France. She’s a hopeless romantic, always falling in love with heroes real and imagined. Jersey has so much scope for stories, with beautiful wind-swept beaches and intriguing inhabitants, and when Georgina realised that no one else wrote romances set there, she decided she had to provide some. Her books are published by Accent Press

Todays featured book is “ A Jersey Dreamboat (The Jersey Scene Book Three “. If you haven’t checked out the her book, then here’s a little about it and where to find it.
Event planners Izzy and Jess are badly let down when a Jersey socialite hires them for the busiest weeks of the season and then cancels at the last minute, leaving the girls with no bookings and no money.
Feeling despondent, they try a night out to cheer themselves up, and meet the captivating and aristocratic Ed, who invites the two on a luxury yacht cruise to Nice, together with his two brothers. Romance builds through heady days of blue skies and warm seas, but when a last-minute wedding booking is offered, the girls must return to Jersey, and real life has to begin again … or has it?
I hope you enjoyed it! Keep watching for more great authors all month and don’t forget to go by Rosie’s post at https://rosieamber.wordpress.com/… Let’s make it another awesome tour for 2015!

I visited Guernsey a few years ago and Jersey is on my list of places to go, I’m sure it’s a lovely place to set a book.
I would love to visit Jersey Island…it’s now on my “bucket list”! I’m going to look it up on Google and check it out. I must read one of your books for a genuine tour of Jersey. Lucky girl! Wish I could see Henry Cavill walking around! Nice to meet you during the blog tour,
