ANNOUNCEMENT:  The winner of Suzanne's giveaway is T.F. Walsh.

What gave you the inspiration for your latest release?
A friend made a short film about a theatre that had been refurbished by a local businessman. It was really interesting stuff, so I’d had the idea to use a theatre refurbishment backdrop in mind for a while. When my lovely editor at The People’s Friend suggested that I try writing a pocket novel for them, the characters of Sean and Grace arrived – and I decided the theatre would be a perfect place to have them hang out together on dark Scottish evenings.

How did you think of the name for the book?
How did you think of the name for the book? I didn’t. Or, at least, I didn’t think of this name. The book was
originally called ‘Sean McIver’s Return’ – but the pocket novel was published as ‘Your Secret Smile’. The ebook and the large print version have different edits to the pocket novel, but they all have the exact same story. To save on confusion (and as there’s no copyright in titles) I used the pocket novel title.

Which is your favourite type of hero?  Strong and masterful or sensitive and empathetic?Oh, I like all types of heroes. Sometimes I’m the mood to read about strong and masterful and at other times an entirely more sensitive hero will get my vote.

Can you sum up your book in a tweet?
Sean McIver's eager to renew old acquaintances. But Grace is determined she's not going to allow the same man break her heart twice.

How many books will come in the new series?
At the moment, I have another four in mind, but these characters are speaking to me quite a lot, so the series might well go on and on.

Thank you so much for inviting me onto your blog today, Nas, I’m always thrilled to visit you.


When Sean McIver left town to go travelling, he took a piece of Grace Anderson’s heart with him. It’s taken years for her to get over him, but at last she’s happy on her own. Her time is filled with good friends and fulfilling work as a maths teacher. But when Sean returns it’s obvious he’s intent on causing havoc in her well ordered life.

Sean had only been gone five minutes when he realised he should never have left Grace. Over the years, she has never been far from his thoughts. When he’s offered a job at the school in his old hometown, he hopes this will be a chance to make up for past mistakes – particularly as Grace now works at the same school. All he needs to do is convince Grace that an art teacher with a head full of dreams can be compatible with a practical maths specialist.

    I still think of it as Sean McIver's Return in my head. But I've been caught out myself when a book has had a name change and I've bought two copies.
