Romancing September Across the World – Day 25 – Annie Crux


Good morning everyone! I want to welcome you to the 2nd part of Day 25 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 and get caught up.

Now on to today’s featured author, Here’s the question I asked:

What has been the biggest inspiration for your writing?

My biggest inspiration for writing has always been other people’s books. I fervently believe that in order to write you must read. And I mean read Everything!! Good books, and you know as soon as you pick one up, help you to become a better writer, and bad books again help you so you soon know how to avoid the pitfalls that are lurking there for all of us.

I do read reviews for other books, but I don’t always agree with them. By the same token, I am prepared to take criticism for my own books. And, of course, I NEVER agree with that!!!

Here’s a little bit about today’s author:

Annie Crux

I pop up on google and Wikipedia and on Amazon Books as Ann Jennings, Angela Arney, as well as Annie Crux. I know I’m very lazy, and I am trying to do better. I’m having a web page done, to let people know about me.


Today’s featured book is “Lavender House Mob”. If you haven’t checked out the her book, then here’s a little about it and where to find it.

The Lavender House Mob

 Book Description

When widowed novelist Louise Gregory’s life is turned upside down, can she regain her peaceful home, and regain her trust in a man she thought she new?

Louise Gregory is happy enough living alone with her pets at rambling Lavender House in the New Forest, but her life is suddenly disrupted by an unexpected financial crisis and the appearance on her doorstep of her daughter Penny, with her two young children in tow. Thereafter Louise’s life turns upside down: a passer-by, Jack, knocks her off her bike but then comes to her rescue by offering to pay over the odds if she lets him stay; her sister Jane is suffering a mid-life crisis; Penny’s strong-minded mother-in-law, Maggie, arrives; and her home, once a haven of peace and quiet, descends into an hilarious, clamorous B&B. Despite herself, Louise is attracted to Jack, but, just as quickly as he had arrived, he disappears. Confused and irritated by her dysfunctional family and the feelings Jack has aroused, Lavender House stands as the only constant in Louise’s life, but then her peace is shattered once again. How can she trust a man she thought she knew? With characters who leap off the page and grab your heart, this story will leave you smiling.
