From the Author:

A black romantic comedy about a father-son love triangle...
"Olivia's Bliss is a black romantic comedy about a young would-be novelist, Olivia, whose love life and career are a disaster. Publishers keep rejecting her literary masterpiece, 'Wickham's Memoirs' (a spicy version of Pride and Prejudice' from Wickham's viewpoint!)and the only excitement in her love-life is her old Ex, ELvis (say no more!) Then she and her two flat-mates, Josephine and Leila advertise for a lodger and along comes the sexy, witty and wild Ricky Caldwell - a 27-year old hunk who works on a womens' mag (he claims he loves spending all day chatting women up about PMT and orgasms). All three fall in love with him - the race begins! Events culminate when they hold a crazy party with the theme 'The Spice Girls Meets The Blues Brothers' and Olivia's attempts at becoming Ginger Spice go horribly, horribly wrong... Life seems at a rock-bottom, when Olivia starts working as a PA for Ricky's father, Sir Henry Caldwell. Despite the fact that her typing speed is two words per three fingers per minute, she bluffs the interview and gets the job. Sir C is everything Ricky's not - he's 47 (twice her age), dominating and a bully - but still brutally sexy. Soon she finds herself embarking on a dangerous affair... It should be easy to forget Ricky... Shouldn't it?... 'Olivia's Bliss' is an outrageously funny romp about falling in love twice...

"I'm 24 years old and I wrote this book after giving up work to sign on and condemn myself to a life of living off baked beans. When I discovered I had won the Poolbeg / Ireland on Sunday competition with the novel, I was chuffed! It comes out in July and Louise Bagshawe has given us a lovely quote to put on the front cover - "Fantastic - you'll be absolutly gripped!" So, there you go! The only draw-back about writing this book was that everyone is assuming it's autobiographical. But I never have, or want to be in a love triangle, particularly not in one between a father and son...(honest!)
