Cupid’s Arrows – Miranda Dickinson

Miranda Dickinson is giving Cupid his To-Do list today and she’s hoping love is brewing at her favourite café:

“Dear Cupid

Firstly, I’d like to thank you for bringing me and a certain lovely Bob together. He’s fab. Loving your work on that!

But this time I’m not asking for me. I’m asking for two people who work at the local café where I often go to write. After a particularly entertaining Halloween themed-day, I christened them ‘Face-paint Skeleton Guy’ and ‘Zombie Serving Wench’ and the names have sort of stuck. They clearly like each other, but as yet haven’t acted upon it.

(I even wrote a short story about them to try to move things along, but unless they read my blog they’re unlikely to know that. You can read it here)

The longing looks across the tables as they pass each other are impossible to ignore. Even with the café’s signature soundtrack of Nat King Cole, Dean Martin and all of America’s crooners and swingers to help, they haven’t given in to the attraction between them.

Could you give them a helping arrow, Cupid?

Thank you in advance,

Miranda xx”

Thanks, Miranda – awwww!

Miranda’s latest book is When I Fall In Love

What happens when your happy ever after is suddenly taken away from you? Elsie Maynard has a whole new life she never expected to have.

From inadvertently founding a choir like no other with former 80s rock star Woody Jensen, to daring to date again, Elsie steps out into an unknown future – a future that could include gorgeous designer Olly Hogarth, a man who seems intent on winning her heart.

Overcoming problems, challenges and the occasional frustration – namely overconfident Torin Stewart who seems to be everywhere – Elsie believes she is making the most of her life.

But then a heartfelt request brings her to Paris – and the last item on a very important List.

Can Elsie take the final step and lay her past to rest? Join Elsie as she strives to start again, with the help of a dubiously talented, newly formed singing group and her father and sisters’ attempts to help her find love.
