I have chosen to share books for
10 days that are by Authors I absolutely love but aren’t given the level of publicity their work deserves.
DAY8: TEN DAY AUTHOR SPOTLIGHT
As READERS, I am asking you to add these to your list of books to read next, and also share the posts, so we can get these Authors the spotlight they deserve.
As AUTHORS I’m asking you to start your own #TenDayAuthorSpotlight so we can be a community that supports each other.
DAY8: My eighth Author Spotlight is of South African Author Andie Patrick and the book I will be spotlighting is Bitter-Sweet Harvest which is now available for Pre-order on Amazon.
The Blurb :
They were not supposed to fall in love. It was tempting fate.
Ambitious photo-journalist, April Lennox, is excited to be in Tuscany on her first major assignment for “Wine and Travel” magazine. This is her chance to make a name for herself.
She is photographing workers harvesting grapes when she trips and falls into the arms of Rico Falcone.
There is an instant spark of attraction between them. April is wary of any relationship which might affect her career, but desire overcomes her caution. They embark on what is intended to be a brief affair, which must end on her return to London. As their encounters become increasingly passionate, love is inevitable. But Rico is living a lie, and April is devastated when she finds out.
Rico believes that April is beyond his reach. Driven by a strong sense of duty he becomes engaged to a bride chosen for him by his family. After a chance meeting with April, he knows that his engagement was a tragic mistake; but he is honour bound not to break it.
Is their love strong enough to overcome the gulf between them?
About the Author :
ANDIE PATRICK was born in the year Adolf Hitler came to power.
Six years later she moved to Kenya, and has lived in Africa ever since.
Her writing experience includes running business writing courses for embryo managers, and a stint as a newspaper theatre critic.
Today, she enjoys leading a writing circle and is a member of the Romance writers Organisaton of South Africa.
Never happier than with pen in hand, Andie started writing short stories after she retired, not dreaming that she could write anything longer. But one day, spurred by a challenge, she sat down at her computer and started writing. There she stayed, pausing only to eat and sleep, for 23 days. A novelist was born.
She had discovered her metier in romance. Married twice (consecutively) but now widowed for the second time, Andie lives in George, South Africa. When she is not writing, she pursues her interests in music, travel, wine, cars and photography.
She spends her days happily weaving plots and creating characters, warbling snatches of opera as she writes. An octogenarian writing steamy romances? She admits to being bit out of practice, but claims that a vivid imagination and an excellent memory serve her well. And write a good story she does.
Her creativity is fuelled by a lifetime of varied experiences to draw on, an enduring love of the English language, and a sense of mischief (attested by her motto: “Live old disgracefully”).
