I didn’t know what to expect when I was invited to write an episode for Secrets Of The A List. I understood it was a serial, but I still expected something more like the romances I usually write.
I was astonished at the detail in the outline that the publisher sent, and I was sucked in very quickly. I read it on my phone while I was on the treadmill at the gym. I was laughing out loud with delight at some of the twists and unexpected secrets that come to light.
I won’t spoil any of them here. I’ll only say it was a very different exercise. I’m used to writing sexual tension that moves the romance forward. This story had all the same demands for sexy, larger-than-life characters and the fast pace yet lush description of a Presents, but holds a different type of tension. Rather than writing toward a wrap up, there was always another revelation that prompts another ‘what will happen next?’
If you remember serial dramas like Dynasty and my personal favourite, Dallas, you’ll be totally drawn into Secrets Of The A List.
