Welcome to The Moment She Left blog tour!
Today I am pleased to have Susan Lewis, author of The Moment She Left stop by to talk about her research trip to New Zealand earlier this year for the next book in the series of No Child of Mine and Don’t Let Me Go….
“I’ve just returned from one of the most inspiring and wonderful research trips I’ve made in a long time. Of course all that fabulous New Zealand wine made it doubly enjoyable! It was all go most of the time, and I developed a love for Hawkes Bay that would see me living thee if it were only possible. Since returning I’ve been fully immersed in the new book (one way of staying in NZ), which is a follow up to No Child of Mine and Don’t Let Me Go.
I’ve had so many requests for this book that I can only hope that everyone ends up enjoying revisiting these characters as much as I have. Though, as you might expect, it’s not all plain sailing for Charlotte and Chloe, nor for Anthony who now has a vineyard, and is so desirable… Well, you’ll find out soon enough.
Keri Keri, in the Bay of Islands, is one of my favourite places. I did a few signings while we were there; it was such a delight to meet so many readers who had enjoyed my books! We also took a trip to Rainbow Falls, a stunning waterfall just outside of Keri Keri, and of course we had to revisit Chloe’s beach, which is in the bay you might remember from Don’t Let Me Go.
The time was packed with all sorts of research including fancy dinners in the world famous Wineries of Craggy Range, Mission Hills and of course Black Barn. I’ve found so much about wine-making that I’ve offered to take over from Dave McKee at Black Barn should he ever want to go on holiday!
The trip was rounded off with a stay in Wellington with friends whose gorgeous home overlooks the bay and then on to Lake Taupo which provided even more inspiration so it too will appear in the new story.
All in all it was a really fabulous trip, do keep an eye out for more on the new book, which will be published early next year!”
