Before I was an author I ... I had a really lovely garden, now – meh not so much. I have always worked full-time so now I am on perpetual a book deadline weekends are sacred for writing not gardening.

Describe Paris Lights in one sentence: A heartbroken Aussie tourist and an arrogant, broody chef make for a very sassy, super sexy romance set in the heart of Paris.

My favourite place to write is ... my home office is my happy place.

When I’m not writing I ... am spending as much time with my poor neglected friends and family. And I’m not going to lie; there is many a Netflix binge in there too.

My favourite place to curl up with a book is ... a warm bed by lamp light.

  • Paris Lights - CJ Duggan

    'You're breaking up with me!' He was silent. 'In Paris.' Eyes dropping. 'Under the Eiffel-fucking-Tower!' I screamed.

  • New York Nights - CJ Duggan

As someone who believes that a love story is a must have in any book, it’s easy to see how I fell into Books With Heart! I’m the Marketing Coordinator here at Hachette Australia, and will devour anything – historical, paranormal, suspense, fantasy and a lot of tea. I’m also a big fan of a good #ManCrushMonday coupled with a little #WineWednesday.
