Feature on Jenny Brigalow and A MAN FOR ALL SEASONS giveaway!

Today's feature on author Jenny Brigalow and her A MAN FOR ALL SEASONS and there's a giveaway of kindle copy to one commenter!

Jenny around the web:

What do you love most about writing A Man For All Seasons?

I'd have to say that bringing together two contrasting landscapes between the pages of one book was terrific.  The arid, magnificent but  uncompromising vastness of  the Australian Outback is the perfect foil for the gentle undulations and  lush green  of England.

 

You wrote about exotic places - what is your ideal holiday destination?

I'd love to go on a holiday in the desert. But I can't decide which is more romantic, riding a camel and sleeping beneath a star spangled sky  or a sumptuous tent secreted in an oasis.

 

Anywhere you haven't travelled you would like to go?

Well, if I were rich, I  would love to do a world tour of stained glass windows. I am fascinated by them. You know, all those cathedrals and churches, mansions and palaces.  Top of the list to visit would be Saint Chapelle in France, Saint Vitus Cathedral in Prague, Canterbury Cathedral in England and I'd love to see the Rose Window in the Cathedral at Reims. So much history.  Such works of art.

 

What item do you always pack when you travel?

A book of course. Two if I can squeeze them in.  It'd be great to have a kindle before I travel again. Then I could take loads of books!




When successful rodeo rider and racehorse trainer Chad Cherub steps off the plane at Heathrow, love is the last thing on his mind. He’s travelled from Australia to do a business deal with the wealthy entrepreneur and racehorse fanatic, Walter Driscoll. However, he soon finds himself distracted by Wally’s gorgeous daughter, Seraphim.

Sweet, spoiled Seraphim, a gifted dressage rider, is also distracted. Engaged to the eminently suitable Barry Wellington-Worth, the arrival of cool, confident Chad forces her to re-examine her life. When she discovers the devastating truth that she does not love Barry, and learns that Chad’s cook has been injured, Seraphim jumps at the chance to take up the position on his remote property and escape the confines of her English life.
In the great dust bowl of the Australian Outback the couple find they have more in common than horses. Their love blooms as they work hard to start a new life together. But Seraphim’s family, and the past, threatens to tear them apart. It is only when the truth is laid bare that the barriers are broken down.

  1. Travel the world seeing stained glass windows? Great choice!

    Oh, and Seraphim is a lovely name!

  2. Hi Emily, thanks for popping in. Seraphim is a lovely name isn't it - just like the lady herself. She's not quite an angel ... but pretty close ... but then I'm biased!

  3. Wonderful interview and the book sounds lovely! I like your ideas for where to spend a holiday too. Very creative!

  4. Hi Leigh, so pleased to meet you. I saw a fab holiday advertised on TV a while ago, for a walking holiday in the Australian desert, with a camel to carry all the gear. Sighs wistfully ...

  5. I like the idea of traveling so far from home. I've never done that for an extended period of time.

  6. Hi Theresa, thanks for sharing. It is a wonderful experience, although traveling to Australia has the advantage of shared language. I'm not sure that I'd be brave enough to try it in a non English speaking country. Still, you just never know what's waiting around the corner ...

  7. I'd like to travel with you as the guide! We live in an area that was called by English speaking explorers The Wild Horse Desert, and called by the Spanish Explorers Desierto de los Muertes, or Desert of the Dead. I prefer the English explorer's name for it, and spending a night out in a tent in the parts of it that are still desert like sounds lovely.

  8. This books sounds wonderful!

    I tend to go overboard on books when I travel. I usually bring a suitcase full. Crazy, I know!

    Have a great week.

    1. Hey Dana, good to meet you. Holidays are just the best opportunity to read guilt free aren't they. I do hope you have someone to carry your case!

  9. Hi Shelly, thanks for sharing. I must say that your 'Wild Horse Desert' sounds intriguing and rather romantic. I think I'd like a night there too! Perhaps not alone though, you know - 'Desert of the Dead'- and all that. It sounds like a fantastic backdrop for a story. Lots of history by the sound of it. Another one to add to my list of places to go!

  10. Hey Donna, thanks for dropping by. I have to say that I love the cover too. It's positively sizzling, although I can't take any credit for it. Just lucky I guess.

  13. Stained glass is beautiful.

    Chad and Seraphim's tale looks like a page turner.

    1. Hi Medeia, lovely to see you. Stained glass is exquisite, especially when the sun shines through it. Such an artform. I read The Pillars Of The Earth a little while ago and Ken Follett described how it was made in the middle ages. Just amazing.

  14. Hi Jenny. I lived in the Australian outback some years ago. If you get the chance to travel there you will simply love it. Nothing like it in the world.

    Oh, and all the best with your novel. Sounds a good read.

    1. Hi Wendy aka Quillfeather. Thanks for taking the time to drop by. I haven't been lucky enough to live in the Outback, but A Man For All Seasons is based on a marvelous four day trip in Outback Queensland about five years ago. Took the night train! So slow. We kept stopping to let cattle cross the track. Brilliant. I just adored those emu's too. And how cute are those little stripey chicks?

  15. I really like the sound of this story and how it unfolds. And going from lush English countryside to a desert has got my own imagination going. I'm adding "A Man..." to my reading list.

  20. Loved the interview, Jenny and Nas! Jenny, your book sounds very entertaining. Rodeo rider, race hosre trainer dressage...I take it you're knowledgeable about horses and horsemanship.

    1. Hi Maria, thanks for dropping by. I do love my horses, although sadly my skills don't match either Seraphims or Chads. But dressage has been a life long passion and I have reeducated many horses off the track. Now, I enjoy pony dressage and have two delightful Connemara ponies called Romeo and Tango.

  21. Sounds like a great story, Jenny. I'm looking forward to reading it.
