Good morning everyone! I want to welcome you to the 2nd part of Day 29 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, Here’s the question I asked:
What has been the biggest inspiration for your writing?
I’ve always loved books and reading and have always wanted to tell stories. Perhaps the book that l remember best from my childhood is ‘Little Women’. I was fascinated by the story of those women and knew I wanted to be like Jo and write. I’ve been writing since I was a teenager and although my stories have changed, my love for reading and writing hasn’t. Since I started publishing books and got to know many authors, the work of new writers is an endless source of inspiration. And of course, there are also stories people tell you, things that happen… But most of my stories have an element of ‘What if?’. With regards to ‘I Love Your Cupcakes’, due to my father’s illness I spent a lot of time at my parents’ and used to watch ‘Cupcake Wars’. Thinking about many of the cookery programs and how popular they were, I thought about setting a novel there.
Here’s a little bit about today’s author:
Olga Núñez Miret is from Barcelona although now lives in the UK. She’s a psychiatrist who has always loved to read and write and now also does translations.
She has a PhD in American Literature, an MSc in Criminology, but her main interest is to tell stories. The Man Who Never Was is the first book she published and was followed by Twin Evils? a YA novella about sibling rivalry taken to extremes, Click Me Happy! a romantic novel with three endings to choose from, Escaping Psychiatry a collection of three noir stories with a psychiatrist as protagonist and/or victim, Family, Lust and Cameras a story of obsessions, voyeurism and “alternative” family relationships and I Love Your Cupcakes a sweet romantic novel set in the world of culinary TV contests. Her latest publication is a YA paranormal trilogy, Angelic Business. The book 1 in the series is called Pink Matters, and book 2 Shapes of Greg.

Todays featured book is “I Love Your Cupcakes”. If you haven’t checked out the her book, then here’s a little about it and where to find it.
If you are nuts about TV cookery programs and think chocolate is one of the Seven Wonders of the World, keep reading…
I Love Your Cupcakes is a “sweet” romance, a virtual fantasy high in calories and a fun adventure. Dare to give it a bite!
Dulce, Adelfa and Storm, the protagonists of I Love Your Cupcakes are business partners, friends and share some “interesting” family connections. All the men Dulce meets only ever talk about her cakes and she’s tired of it. Her friend Adelfa, although she’s a Chemistry Professor, can’t manage to find the recipe for the perfect relationship. And Storm, the third of the partners of their bakery/coffee shop/bookshop/art gallery and ex-fire station, is an artist who is not a master in the art of love. How could they imagine that at the studio of the contest “Do You Have What it Takes to Be the Next Baking Star?” they’d find sexual harassment, cheats, fights and also love?
With dogs, fire trucks, London double-decker buses, school buses, artists, chemists, engineers, architects, intrigue, scandals, bigamy, and lots and lots of desserts… I Love Your Cupcakes is a romantic comedy with a sweet heart. You will find baddies, crooks, goodies, odd balls and flawed but endearing characters. More than anything I can promise you good humor, friendship, smiles, sense of community, heart and plenty of cakes. Try it! I’m sure you won’t be able to stop once you give it a bite!
I hope you come to love Dulce, Adelfa, Storm and their friends as much as I do. And if that is the case, please let me know. I wouldn’t mind writing some more adventures about them and baking more cakes!
