Not taking no for an answer

This cute little message greets me now. What time can we meet up? I’ll send a car.

I clear my throat. I’m not taking no for an answer, he persists.


Lost in your time

Novelist meets French rock star, prepare for the sparkles.


Rock star or husband – which would you choose?

Ah, the dangers of the internet! We’ve all been warned, but do we take notice?

When Natasha clicks on a link, her whole life is turned upside down. A flash from the past, a chance meeting with a gorgeous French rock star…

A chance to start over and forget the pain and misery from the last two years.

But can Natasha let go? Will she accept this new twist in her life?

Crazy scenarios

I shake my head, trying to shush the voice lodged in some corner of my brain. Don’t be so stupid, I tell myself, failing to will my imagination into submission. I don’t need crazy scenarios right now, but it sticks, that damn gut feeling. I daren’t confront Antony, he’d probably make fun of me and roar with laughter.

Lost in your time, Elle Amberley

Don’t run

‘Don’t run,’ the organisers are shouting. Nobody listens to them.

Either you run with the masses or risk getting trampled so here I am, right in front of the stage which I’m now staring at, still a little incredulous. I’ve never done this in my life. I’m a grown-up, responsible mother of two so what am I doing here? 

Lost in your time, a novel based in Paris

Rock star or husband – which would you choose?

“Whether our decisions in life end in delight, or even sometimes with regret, we have all been ‘one click away’ from making a choice in our lives that sets a course in motion. Elle Amberley has nailed it, and returns with her gripping characters and kaleidoscopic prose in her new novel, Lost in Your Time. Her talent to knit raw emotion, tears and even laughter, flows straight off the pages and into reader’s hearts. Elle is a gem of an author, and friend.” 
Jen Tucker, author (The Day I Wore my Panties Inside Out)

“Sexy with a Dose of Smiles. Even in the most dire of health conditions, Natasha finds a way to find humour, love and kindness. And in this latest chapter of her life, Matthieu, a sexy French rock star, takes notice. ‘Forever may not be long enough.’ he says and it’s the way I feel about this book. Why must your books end, Elle Amberley? Thank you for enchanting us with characters who feel real enough to touch… and to love.“

Lost in your time | A novel based in Paris

A song from a long buried past, a weekend in Paris, a meeting with the gorgeous French rock star, sparks fly… But life is never that simple, especially for Natasha…

Nothing typical about this writer

Typical? What’s typical?

I’m probably the most untypical type person around. I don’t have a routine and I’m not exactly predictable. I’m sort of bohemian and quite flexible. This does not mean I’m unreliable though.

I was asked in this new interview what my typical writing day was like. You can read all about here, and more.

How about you, do you have a routine?

I have now joined Tumblr and loving it. It allows me to spread my posts throughout the day. Magic! That way, I’m sort of always there to bug you, without bugging you too much hopefully since the posts don’t all come out at once.

Check it out, you can also submit a post if you like. And no, you don’t need a Tumblr account, but if you can’t resist and sign up, let me know, so I can follow you.

Here it is:

 [author_info]Elle Amberley writes novels, the result of far too much imagination and the constant scenarios playing in her head. She also writes short stories and features when she can’t stop herself reacting to events and news. Since she’s a little bit mad, or creative, she now also writes in French.[/author_info]

Don’t forget, Lost in your time is now out. Check out the links for my books on the right-hand side 🙂

Thanks for reading me.

Ravens PIck Me Up. Elle Amberley’s Nine for the Week

A while back I was interviewed on Raven’s Ramblings. If you’ve missed it, here’s another chance to read it.

So today, we welcome Elle Amberley to our mid-week pick me up. The naughty nine we all want to know the answers to.
This week’s naughty nine have a Bohemian twist.
  • We’ll get this one over first, tell us a little bit about yourself.
         I’m a mum first, I homeschool my children, and I’m a writer, a messy one who doesn’t fit into neat little boxes. I like switching genres and I’m a bohemian at heart. Having lived in so many countries makes it hard to settle anywhere. Home is wherever we’re happy and together.
  •  Thanks, now we can probe a bit more. What are you writing at the moment? Going to share any of it with us? 
       Lol, I’m finishing my Paris based novel, due out in Spring 2012, writing short stories, a bit darker than my recent book, probably more like my Literary novels. I also write poems and articles, I can’t help reacting sometimes when I see the news. My big mouth translates into furious articles, although they have been described as heartfelt so I’ll stick with that.
  •  How long have you been writing?      I don’t remember a time I was not writing. I was the annoying kid who wrote and rewrote essays, changing bits until the very last minute.
  •  What is your favorite genre? To write or read.
 I don’t really have one because I have eclectic tastes. It would probably easier to tell you what I don’t like. I’m not a sci-fi fan for example. That said I recently picked up a book, loved it until I got to page ten or something and witches came in to play. I was puzzled, nearly put the book down, then persevered and absolutely loved it.
I think my favourite genre to write is whatever I happen to be writing at the time.
  • Where do you prefer to write? What do you wear? And eat? (OK, I know this is cheating as well, but we need all the gen in our naughty nine)
I write almost everywhere, in the car, while I wait for my children, at the restaurant. I even wrote in the shower once…A fan heard I was often struck by inspiration while taking a shower and had these special pens sent out. Amazing, and a warning to mind what you said in interviews.
I often write in bed in the middle of the night when everything is quiet. So that answers your next question, there’s a photo of me writing in bed taken by my husband on my blog.
I often starve myself because I forget to eat so my long suffering husband brings me coffee and apple cake or other goodies.
  •    So three things you love
My children and my husband but I guess they’re not things.
I love books, music and playing with my children.
  • Three you don’t Injustice, cruelty and anything nasty.
  • Three things you would like to happen in the next three years? Feel free to add to the three things you don’t,
Get my health back into shape, my children to be happy and carry on writing.
That’s it painless eh? Thanks for dropping by and giving us a peek into your life. Feel free to add any links to blogs websites etc so we can all find out what you are up to.
Thanks again, so lovely to meet you and get to know your blog. Looking forward to having you on mine. Best wishes.
