Read on to learn what the author of Bridesmaids’ and ‘The Nearly Weds’ had to say… 1 – Can you describe your average writing day? I write during office hours three times a week, when my two boys go to nursery, and am pretty disciplined (though I admit that that’s a challenge when the sun’s out). It’s far easier now that this is my ‘day job’ and I don’t have to snatch the odd hour here and there after work or when the kids are asleep. I did that for the first six months, when I was writing Bridesmaids – but think I’d go out of my mind if I had to sustain it for much longer. Sometimes you need a bit of a break to be inspired. That’s my excuse anyway. 2 – What inspired you to set The Nearly Weds in America? Have you spent time there? I was an au pair in Philadelphia after I left university so had plenty of material (though, for the record, I’ve never slept with any of my bosses). I decided to set it in Boston after a holiday there a couple of years ago. It’s a fabulous place and I loved it. It’s a beautiful-looking city with a wonderful mix of old and new architecture. Plus, I found the people there to be engaging, intelligent and friendly.
