  1. If you could tell your younger writing self anything, what would it be?
Write it all. Everything that comes in to your mind. Even the stories and sentences that seem silly and inane. Even the half formed ideas that may or may not lead anywhere. Fill notebooks and journals, gather the scraps of paper and napkins that you scribbled words on, keep them, and write it all.

How did publishing your first book change your process of writing?

I think it made me take things a little more seriously. At first I had a very much hit and hope attitude towards my book. I knew that it needed work, but I wasn't quite willing to put in too much work if they were just going to say no. I recognise that now as a form of self sabotage. If I didn't really try, then I couldn't really fail because I would know that I could have done it better. Doing the revisions on the first book erased that completely and I consider myself very lucky that I was asked to do revisions! So when it came to the second book, I was much more strict with myself. I know that the first draft will always be a first draft, until my fabulous editor is able to help me find a way forward, but now it's much more important to me for my story to be as strong as it can be in that first instance.  

What was the best money you ever spent as a writer?

My garden table. I can pretty much write on anything - (see above answer!) but where I write... that's a different matter. I love being outside. I love the fresh air and the wind blowing, gently. Being able to sit beneath the pergola at my garden table means that I am protected from the sun (even though I still wear factor 60 sun cream!) but I am still outside. I can spend hours out there during the summer. Sadly in the winter, I'm relegated either to my kitchen table, or the spare bedroom - depending which is warmer! But I do most of my writing in the summer, in the garden, at my lovely table. 

What authors did you dislike at first but grew into?

I'm not sure that I've ever disliked an author. There may have been books that I didn't quite enjoy but not a specific author as such. Years ago I read The Uncommon Reader by Alan Bennett - this is not an example of an author I disliked at all - but the book imagines the Queen encountering a book lending library and her descent into reading. At one point she reflects that she has been brought up to finish "what's on one's plate", and she has the same attitude towards reading. If you haven't read it, go out and find it. Now. It's a beautiful book, joyous and funny, and just... fantastic. And I decided to have the same 'plate finishing' attitude towards reading which has led me to some really quite weird and wonderful storytelling and I will never regret that, no matter how I feel about the particular book. 

Tell us a bit about your book...

In A Ring to Take His Revenge Antonio Acuri's sole focus is on taking down the man that destroyed his family - his own father. To do so, he needs a fake-fiance and it seems that only his beautiful secretary, Emma, will do. But it's not long before the lines between business and pleasure become blurred and soon Antonio is going to have to make a choice between what he wants and what he needs.  

Mills & Boon author Pippa Roscoe lives in Norfolk near her family and makes daily promises that this will be the day she will leave the computer and take a long walk in the countryside. She can’t remember a time when she wasn’t dreaming of gorgeous alpha males and misunderstood heroines. Totally her mother’s fault of course—she gave Pippa her first romance to read at the age of seven! She is inconceivably happy that she gets to share those daydreams with her readers.

  1. This sounds like an intriguing book. Like Pippa- I love writing and drawing outside. Her garden table sounds appealing. Wishing her all the best!

    1. Thank you Jess, I'm so pleased to find a fellow 'outdoorser'. I think I've only got a few days left of good weather before Autumn truly sets in! Best wishes.

  2. Congratulations on the new book. The story sounds interesting.

  3. Good question and answer. The book sounds good.

  4. Congratulations on your latest novel, Pippa. I used to write only at my desk in my "writing" room. Now, I move around. The dining table is one of my favorite spots now. I don't know why. In the evenings I also write on the sofa in the den. It's comfortable. I like your idea about writing everything that comes to mind, too. That's the reason I have several stories started. I work mostly on one, but when an idea pops into my mind for one of the other stories, I jot it down in that folder. Some day they'll be stories too. Best wishes to you.

    1. Hi Beverly, thank you! I am beginning to wonder if each story needs a different writing spot. Because of the colder weather, I'm now at my kitchen table, but I'm hoping there's still one or two more days of 'outside' writing left in the year. Good luck with your writing! Best wishes.

  5. Nice revenge setting for her then
