Are you ‘living’ your life or just living your life?
Elsa Clairmont was widowed barely five years after marrying her childhood sweetheart. She has struggled to come to terms with the loss and, six years later, has almost ceased to live herself. She does just enough to get by.
Danny Delaney is the ultimate ‘Mr Nice Guy’. He’s kind, caring and sweet. A talented artist in his teens, his abusive mother ruined his career in art and he turned his back on his exceptional gift. Now, he does just enough to get by.
On New Year’s Eve, both Danny and Elsa die in unrelated accidents. Thanks to some poker playing shenanigans, Elsa’s husband Harry, and Danny’s old Art teacher, William, manage to orchestrate a deal with Death that allows Danny and Elsa to live for one more year on the condition they both agree to complete three tasks.
They have until the last chime of Big Ben on the 31st December to fulfil their quests.
If they succeed, they stay in the world of the living.
If they should fail however…
‘An Artisan Lovestyle’ is a story of personal growth and self-discovery as two people find themselves forced to make overdue changes in their lives, changes in other people’s lives, and all with the added challenge of finding true love before their time runs out. Will they do it? Can they do it?
After all, it’s a matter of Life or Death…

MY INTERVIEW WITH THE AUTHOR!!
- When did you know that you wanted to be an author?
Writing is something I’ve always enjoyed and I’ve always had a thing for words. In my younger years I often scribbled down poetry or song lyrics. I’d often toyed with the idea of writing a novel but it intruded too much into the time I would have available to read other people’s books and I wasn’t prepared to give that up. Eventually, however, the point came where I just had to sit down and get on with it. That was in January 2017 and I haven’t stopped since.
- What inspired you to write this book?
Two things really – the first one is the idea which came to me in a dream. It seemed to be one which was quite different and, the more I thought about it, the more excited I became. Secondly, people who had read my debut novel, ‘A Rock ‘n’ Roll Lovestyle’, kept saying they wanted more, they wanted to know what happened next. I didn’t want to write a sequel but felt this book was a good compromise because it includes characters from my debut novel along with new characters with fresh stories.
- If you could sell this book in one sentence what would it be?
Oh blimey! It’s bad enough trying to come up with the back page blurb never mind one sentence! Let me see… “If you want to know if you are ‘living’ your life, or just living your life, then read this book and find out.”
- What are you up to next?
I will be getting my head down to begin working on Book 3 which is also a part of the ‘Lovestyle’ series. I’ll probably work a few less days over the summer as I would like to spend some time with my husband and remind him who I am.
- Who is your biggest inspiration?
My biggest inspiration is more of a ‘what’ than a ‘who’! I still work forty hours a week doing a job that ceased to thrill me a very long time ago. Bills, however, still need to be paid and cats still have to be fed so I can’t afford the luxury of giving it up to write full time. That is what I desperately want, therefore, every day that I have to leave home for ten hours of joyless monotony, inspires me to keep on writing in the hope that, one day, my greatest desire will become a reality.
