Co-owner of Broadway Studios, Byron Lord is determined to provide job security to his off-beat workforce, and he needs Lauren Chandler’s help to do so. Byron may have underestimated how far Lauren would be prepared to go. He had definitely underestimated how much she would demand of him.

What is the most difficult part of your artistic process?
Revealing myself. Of course I don’t mean literally. I put passion into my stories and I hope readers feel that passion. The books are dark tales of romance during which the characters have to battle for their HEA. I really don’t like the idea of people laughing at them. If that happens, they don’t get the way I write, they don’t feel my passion. There are excellent books out there to make you laugh, just not mine.
Does your family support your career as a writer?
On the whole, yes. My husband doesn’t read my books but he does help out with some of the research, which he doesn’t seem to mind about… And, on the whole, he’s patient when my writing gets in the way of family time. My eight-four-year-old mum is super proud and reads everything I write, even sharing with her friends. My older sister also reads all my stories and is very supportive, giving me really helpful feedback. My younger sister struggles to read any of them and that’s okay. I am always mindful of the sex in my stories – it’s not for everyone.
If you had to do something differently as a child or teenager to become a better writer as an adult, what would you do?
As a child I read prolifically. My dad used to threaten to take my books away if I didn’t answer when spoken to, or missed a meal. But I wasn’t in the habit of writing my own stories. Please bear in mind I grew up to become a finance director, more concerned with numbers than words. So I guess that’s what I would do differently as a young person – study creative writing and experiment with writing styles. In a way I’m doing that now. I include a “quickie” read each month in my newsletters and experiment with style and genres. It’s fun and good practice.
