Two Scoops, Not Three by Terri Boas / #Interview #BookBlitz @rararesources @TerriBoas

***

Briony, Natalie and Lauren have been best friends since school. Now in their thirties, their lives couldn’t be more different.

Eternally single Briony is desperate to find ‘the one’, while Lauren, a singer onboard cruise ships, is having far too much carefree fun to even think about settling down with ‘Mrs Right’. Or is she?

Meanwhile, long-term married mum Natalie has had her head turned at the gym by sexy spin instructor, Jason. And when he suggests some private, one-on-one sessions, sex-starved Natalie is powerless to resist.

When Natalie’s affair comes to light after a boozy night down their local, where they go to get their alcohol and ice cream fixes, Briony doesn’t think she’ll ever be able to forgive her friend. Luckily, a date with Mani, the hot, chivalrous son of her larger-than-life American boss helps to take her mind off things. Could he be the special someone she has been waiting for all her life?

As the girls embark on some of the most challenging moments of their lives, only one thing is for sure – their friendship will never be the same again . . .

Q&A

When and where do you prefer to write?

I’m a bit of a night owl and prefer to write in the evening. If I have time in the day there’s always something more important to do and I procrastinate the time away. In the evening, the only thing to do after writing is go to bed.

Do you have a certain ritual?

I don’t have a ritual, but I do like to listen to classical, piano, music through my earphones whilst writing.

Is there a drink or some food that keeps you company while you write?

I must admit I am very boring because I don’t drink when I’m writing and because I like to write in the evening, I have a mug of Pukka’s Night time tea and a glass of Ribena.

What is your favourite book?

Goodnight Lady by Martina Cole. Two scoops, not three’s character, Briony Jane Greene is named Briony because I love Briony Cavanagh, Martina’s amazing, lead, character in Goodnight Lady. The two Briony’s are not similar in the slightest.

Do you consider writing a different genre in the future?

I have considered writing for children. I loved Judy Blume, Enid Blyton and many other authors when I was a kid and thought I could give back but unfortunately writing didn’t come easily. On reflection, I have realised that I much prefer writing for grown-ups, and I think I’d enjoy writing a Horror.

Do you sometimes base your characters on people you know?

No, my characters are all fictional.

Do you take a notebook everywhere in order to write down ideas that pop up?

No, I feel that I am very lucky because once I have a message for the book, it pretty much writes itself. Two scoops, not three has a message of love and friendship.

Which genre do you not like at all?

Fantasy and Sci-Fi, not my bag at all.

If you had the chance to co-write a book. Whom would it be with?

My daughter, Portia.

If you should travel to a foreign country to do research, which one would you choose and why?

New York City, USA

In the late 00’s I was hooked on Sex and The City and I loved Carrie Bradshaw’s life, so I decided then, that maybe I could write a book? Ten years later, Two scoops, not three was available. I was ambitious with how long I thought it’d take and I didn’t take into account how life gets in the way, how my confidence and self-belief would come in waves but I made it.

I’d like to take Two scoops’ characters to New York if the opportunity occurs and/or set a book out there – where my dreams began.

Thank you, Terri Boas and Rachel’s Random Resources
