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

    Sarah Williams is a spirited, independent Aussie who has always dreamed of New York City. So when a job opportunity arises to become an au pair for a successful businessman in the heart of Manhattan, Sarah jumps at the chance to follow her dream.

As Junior Marketing Executive at Hachette, I’m lucky enough to cross paths with so many different genres of book. I’m known around the office as a bit of a thriller buff, but I just can’t stop reading YA – which is why I’m on the Date A Book team! I’m all about pop culture references, bad ass women, a unique take on fantasy worlds, and a love story in every book. Hit me up for #WineWednesday and a reading nook every day.
