The great news is that the book I was rushing to finish was accepted without any changes! This is a rare but delicious thing to happen - even if I do feel slightly disorientated, having ear-marked this week for revisions...

The novel is to be called THE MAN SHE DARED NOT DISOBEY (I love that title!) and it features the sexy but rather infuriating Greek tycoon, Zak Constantinides. Some of the action takes place at my favourite London hotel, the Granchester - and the rest of the story is set in New York city. In fact, not very far from Broadway, where this photo was taken.

Back in July, I'd just been out for a delicious Chinese meal with my editor and decided to pose with the iconic, multi-coloured lights gleaming all around me.
One of the things I love about New York is that you can be as outrageous as you like - and nobody bats an eyelid!

So, is it a city that you love, too?


  1. I MUST go to New York immediately.
    And you've written us a gorgeous Greek. Ooooooh, goody!!!


  2. Outrageousness is definitely subjective in New York. I once saw a professional-looking, middle-aged man in business attire having a one-sided conversation with a waste basket. I decided to cross the street...

    Excellent photo, Sharon. The neon lights are bright on Broadway... You look great.

  3. Glad you like the sound of Zak, Rachel.

    And Dan, your comment about the neon lights shining bright made me burst into song!

  4. Wow! Congratulations on being so photogenic, Sharon, and also on your book! I really love that title too and I can't wait to see it on the shelves.

    Love that picture!

  5. Thanks, Lacey -I love that picture, too. For me, it conjures up a certain FEELING about NYC - and I hope that comes over in the book. Am now tussling with my latest story (in my head!), before I start writing it....
