About the Author
Belinda is a marketing communications specialist and copywriter who allowed an addiction to romance and chick-lit to get the better of her. She was named a top ten finalist in the Romance Writers of Australia Emerald Award in both 2013 and 2014.
Her other addictions include music and cars. Belinda’s eclectic music taste forms the foundation of many of her writing ideas and her healthy appreciation for fast cars means she would not so secretly love a Lamborghini. For now she’ll have to settle with her son’s Hot Wheels collection and writing hot male leads with sports cars.
Belinda lives in Sydney and blogs regularly about writing and reading here: www.belindawilliamsbooks.com
Interview with Belinda Williams
Why did you write this book?
The Pitch is the second book in my contemporary romance series, City Love. With this story I had the opportunity to explore the challenges of juggling a relationship and a career, which is an issue for many women today. I’ve spent over a decade working in marketing myself, so this meant I had a good feel for Maddy’s world in this story.
What is your favorite genre to read?
Contemporary romance, of course!
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
Ironically, I’d have to say a historical romance character, Nicholas Brisbane, from Deanna Raybourn’s Lady Julia Grey series. He’s a dark, brooding hero with a sense of mystery about him that makes you want to read more.
What are you working on at the moment, and will see from you in coming months?
I’ve just completed the third book in the City Love series, which will be about Scarlett, due for release in November. I’m also currently a quarter of the way through writing the final book in the series about Cate which will be released in 2016.
Please tell us about your latest book.
She’s in a long-term, committed relationship. With her business.
In three years Madeleine Spencer has single-handedly grown her marketing agency, Grounded Marketing, into one of the country’s fastest growing companies. But her success has been at the expense of her social life, and her girlfriends have had enough. They’ll do whatever it takes, from speed dating to blind dates, to show her there’s more to life than work.
Only Maddy is having a hard time forgetting about her business. She’s about to pitch for her biggest client ever and the mysterious media mogul, Paul Neilsen, has volunteered to mentor her. Maddy might just be in with a shot of landing the account – if she can keep her mind on the job. Working with Paul is not at all what she’d imagined, and Maddy finds herself torn between her ever increasing workload and her feelings for Paul. She’s discovering playing in the big league means making sacrifices … and Maddy must decide what she can’t live without.
