Author Biography

I am a part-time English Tutor and a full-time disorganised mother and housewife!! I spend my life trying to remember not to forget the 101 things on my Things-to-do list - but seem to fail spectacularly most of the time! Whenever I have some free time I am either with my head in a book, or on my computer creating my own books!

I am big fan of rom-com books. I just love books that make me laugh and that leave me feeling happy. My favourite authors are Cecilia Ahern, Jill Mansell, Sophie Kinsella, Susan Elizabeth Philips, Judith Mc Naught... and many more.

I live in Mauritius with my husband and three children. This is my first book but I am currently working on my second one as I write!

In What's It Gonna Be? by Cassandra Piat, Lucy knows she needs to make a change. Though head over heels in love with her long-time boyfriend, Matt, she can’t be truly happy knowing Matt won’t ever take the plunge and marry her. She understands that in order to find true happiness, she needs to let Matt go, and find someone who will give her everything she wants from a relationship. After going through the breakup, Lucy is devastated. Her girlfriends try to help her move on, setting her up on blind dates, and distracting her with their own relationship dramas. But nothing is helping Lucy get over her love for Matt. Can she ever truly move on from him?

While the cover and title didn’t immediately grab my attention, the synopsis is what pulled me in. And I’m sure glad it did. This is a wonderfully written romantic comedy/chick lit read that had me laughing, shaking my head in frustration, and smiling the majority of the way. Lucy was such a lovable main character. Her quirks made her extremely relatable – clumsy, always late, a little scatter-brained – but she was easily like a friend to me. I felt extremely proud of her for ending her relationship with Matt. It’s easy to settle into a comfortable relationship, but she was determined to find the love that she deserved, and I gave her major kudos for that. The meat of the book had so many humorous moments, but also some serious ones, with the introduction of her creepy stalker. I don’t want to give too much away with the ending, but I will say, I was once again very proud of Lucy for standing her ground. She made a terrific character to center a chick lit story around, and I highly enjoyed this novel.
