Katy and Adam are heading to Thailand to get married, this has been their dream for a very long time, and now they’re off, the whole family is going with them!
24 British holiday makers split between two areas of Koh Samui try to prepare for a beautiful wedding in a tropical paradise, but everything that could go wrong, does go wrong! From mis-booked flights, lost luggage, storms, blackouts and a nasty bout of food poisoning, you’d be forgiven for thinking this was something written for National lampoons, but this is based on a true story…seriously…you couldn’t make this up!
Molly: What music, if any do you listen to when you write?
L.M.: I’m quite eclectic when it comes to my music taste, it really depends what mood I’m in. Sometimes I’ll be sat typing away to Guns n Roses, other days I’ll have the Evita soundtrack or Pirates of the Caribbean Orchestral soundtrack. I love music and song with passion to it, I’m not really one for ‘easy listening’ I like something with a bit of fire in it to get me going, I feel it spurs me on.
Molly: Are you a full time writer, or part time writer?
L.M.: I’m a part time writer; by day I’m a scientist.
Molly: Do you hope to one day be a full time writer?
L.M.: I’d love to be a fulltime writer, however I do really love science, it’s just fascinating and it’s always new and refreshing. I think if I do finally get to be a fulltime writer I’d have to attend public lectures and keep my nose in the journals.
Molly: Do you have a word count per day you try to hit?
L.M.: No, I used to, and I do during NaNoWriMo, but I usually have two or three things on the go at once and as I work all day, my writing time is in the evening which I sometimes have to sidetrack for research or some reading of my own.
Molly: When you finish writing a book, how long before you begin writing the next one?
L.M.: I’ve usually already started one! I can be terrible like that and really have to discipline myself to focus on one project at a time. I get an idea and suddenly start running away with it before I’ve finished what I’m doing.
I actually have four stories right now that I’ve written three chapters each for and now I am having to force myself to pick one to focus on fully. I’ll let you know when I’ve decided, it’s usually when they’re about fifteen chapters in.
