Blind Dating by Kerry Taylor
Kerry Taylor was born in London. Currently, she resides in Madrid with her three children. She is often found either writing in her local park or, if the weather is bad, which is not often in Madrid, in Starbucks. She has written several poetry books and romantic comedies.
When mid-forties, divorced, single-mother-of-three, Kimberly, realizes her own mother has more of a life than she does, she decides to do something about it. Encouraged by success stories from people at work, she joins a dating chat room, ICQ, which starts to rock her world.
All of a sudden she’s a swinging single, online, with extreme dates, a little dirty talk, and a sense of her new, sexy self— until that fateful moment when her long-time chat-room buddy, LonelySingle, wants to meet. "Are you trying to find a man on Facelook?" her Mom questions, after years of being told it is Facebook! What if he doesn’t like her? What if she doesn’t like him? These are the thoughts, inside her head. Until they meet and realise, that they have been friends offline as well as online! What happens next?
A light-hearted, romantic comedy about a single mom finding true love, which was right before her eyes.
Q) What inspired you to write this story?
I was watching a movie with my children, there was an advert for online dating. Bingo, that is an idea for my next book.
Q) How long did it take you to write?
The book took about 2 weeks to write, but with edits it has taken nearly 3 months.
Q) What is your favorite thing about writing?
Day dreaming and putting it down on paper, which makes it real.
Q) What is your least favorite thing about writing?
Sitting down for too long. At times my bum hurts so much when I am so involved in writing a book. I can spend up to three hours just writing, not moving from my spot.
Q) What is the oldest thing in your fridge and how old is it?
Hamburger buns, maybe 2 weeks old. With 3 children, nothing stays in there longer than a week.
Q) What can readers expect from you in the future?
Fiction, erotica and romantic comedies. Next year, I am hanging up my hat in writing any books this year.
