Author Interview with Paige Toon

Hey Everyone
                     Two years ago I read this fantastic book called Chasing Daisy (description below) and after that searched the author of the book Paige Toon I'd never heard of her before. So I was surprised when I found out that Chasing Daisy was her third book. Immediately I went to my local library and ordered Paige Toons other books. Ever since Paige has been my ultimate favourite Adult Fiction Author as she is just brilliant! Below I have gave your a description of each of Paige's books as well as abit about her. Then the interview below that and also about her new upcoming novel the sequel to Johnny be Good.

A LAWYER.
A SURFER.
A 24-HOUR FLIGHT.


The frequent liar points are clocking up


     and Lucy’s got choices to make...

It’s been nine years since Lucy left Australia. Nine years since she’s seen her best friend Molly, and Sam, the

one-time love of her life. Now her two friends are getting married. To each other. And Lucy is on her way to

Sydney for their wedding.

Life for Lucy has moved on. She’s happily settled with James, her gorgeous lawyer boyfriend, with their flat

 in London and her glamorous job in PR. Surely there’s no reason to expect this two-week holiday in the

 sun will be anything out of the ordinary?

But just before take-off, Lucy receives a text from James’s mobile. She can’t resist taking a look ... and, in one push of a button, her world comes crashing down...



If your boss was the hottest rock star on the
planet, would you mix business with
pleasure?
I’m Meg Stiles. This is my leaving party. And that song we’re making a mockery of? That’s written by one of the biggest rock stars in the world. And I’m moving in with him tomorrow.


Seriously! I am not even joking.


Well, maybe I’m misleading you a little bit. You see, I haven’t actually met him yet...


No, I’m not a stalker. I’m his new PA. His Personal Assistant. And I am off to La-La Land. Los Angeles.

 The City of Angels – whatever you want to call it – and I can’t bloody believe it!


Celebrity PA to wild boy of rock Johnny Jefferson, Meg’s glam new life in sun-drenched LA is a whirlwind of showbiz parties and backstage passes. Cool, calm Christian, in town to write his famous friend’s biography, helps keep Meg’s feet firmly on the ground.

But with Johnny’s piercing green eyes and a body Brad Pitt would kill for, how long will it be before she’s swept right off them again?


If you fall too fast... you might just crash


‘You don’t have to worry about me. I have no intention of getting my heart broken again.’

Of course, I’m lying. I feel like Will is chipping a little piece of it away, day by day. It’s killing me...

Daisy Rogers is in love – and that’s no good thing. It’s not that her very famous ex is neither out of sight nor

 out of mind, but that the man of her dreams, William Trust, has a girlfriend – a childhood sweetheart, no less.

 And as a Formula 1 racing driver, he puts his life at risk every day he goes to work.

From Melbourne to Monte Carlo, and São Paulo to Singapore, Daisy and her best friend Holly travel the

 world as hospitality girls on the Grand Prix scene. But with more secrets between them than Paris Hilton has

 shoes, life promises to be nothing short of a whirlwind.

‘Will you marry me?’

I think of you, then. I think of you every day. But usually in the quietest part of the morning, or the darkest part of the night. Not when my boyfriend of two years has just proposed.
I look up at Richard with his hopeful eyes.
‘Lily?’ he prompts.
It’s been ten years, but it feels like only yesterday that you left. How can I say yes to Richard with all my heart when most of it has always belonged to you? I take a deep breath and will myself to speak…

Ten years ago when Lily was just sixteen, she fell in love with someone she really shouldn’t have fallen in love with. Now, living in Sydney and engaged to another man, she can’t forget the one that got away. Then her past comes back to haunt her, and she has to make a decision that will break her heart – and the heart of at least one of the men who love her.

Now for the exciting part I had the chance to send Paige Toon a couple of questions and she so kindly answered for me. Here goes.

I love reading your books and even over and over again, did you enjoy writing them as much as we (the readers) love reading them? I absolutely loved writing each and every one of my books. Sure, at times I've hit a brick wall, but when that happens I try to take a step back and write a different scene about something that excites me. I always figure that if I don't enjoy writing, my readers won't enjoy reading.


All the characters in your books are sort of linked together how did you come up with something like that? I love imagining my characters living in a sort of parallel universe - their stories continuing on and on, so it's nice to revisit them every so often - they're like old friends!


Where do you get your inspiration from? I get inspiration from all sorts of areas - an idea might just pop into my head, or sometimes I'll read a book or watch a film and imagine things happening differently with a different cast of characters - ideas tend to spiral off from that.


Do you have any favourite authors or books that you enjoy reading yourself? I love Marian Keyes and Lisa Jewell, and I LOVE the Twilight saga! What a great love story...


I'm an inspiring author what advice could you give to me and other inspiring authors out there?Get yourself a copy of the Writers & Artists Yearbook - there's a new one every year with loads of info about how to get a literary agent and some great advice. Also, check out a blog I wrote at simonandschuster.co.uk about how I got published.


The sequel to Johnny be good is out soon I can't wait to see if Johnny and 'Nutmeg' get together. Were you intending to write a sequel when you'd wrote Johnny be good?It feels like I've always wanted to write a sequel, but actually, I think I first considered writing one when I wrote the epilogue. I wanted people to feel torn - I don't think I expected them to feel THAT torn though!


Thanks so much, Kerry-Ann - good luck with your blog! xxx

The sequel to Johnny be Good is out soon and here's a bit of what you can expect. I can't wait for it to come out been counting down the days since I found out. The cover and name of the book is still being deciding on.

'He's not mine, is he?'


That's the question I fear the most.
You see, I have a secret. My son is not fathered by my boyfriend, but by one of the most famous people that ever lived. And he doesn't even know it.

One-time celebrity personal assistant to wild boy of rock Johnny Jefferson, Meg Stiles is now settled and living in the south of France with her doting boyfriend Christian and their son Phoenix. But they're living a lie - a lie that will turn their lives upside down and inside out - because Meg's son doesn't look like Christian, he looks like his rock star father, and sooner or later, the world is going to realise…
Have you read any of Paige Toons books? What did you think? Is this the first time you have heard of her? Do you think the books sound good??
A MASSIVE thanks to Paige Toon and for making my entire day, month, year, decade and so forth. Also for taking the time out of her busy schedule and answering theses questions. I am a huge fan of hers if you haven't figured that out yet.
Thanks,
Kerry-Ann
