PRELUDE SERIES- Rationale
The Prelude Series is contemporary romance, set in the world of music, musicians, music festivals and gigs.
The series started small, as a short story about Isaac who dreams of becoming a rock star. In the short story he’s part of the band Stadium. The band has five members, all mates and all serious musicians. Then I realised the other members of Stadium were interesting too and that the friendship between the boys, their relationship with each other and the females in their lives had a great dynamic. So the Prelude Series was born.
The series is made up of ten books and each book focusses on one member of Stadium as they start to take their music, their careers and the success of Stadium more and more seriously. The first five books are set in New Zealand and then the next five, after Stadium gets the big break they have been working towards, are set in Australia, London and New York.
The band members fight, argue and piss each other of, but they get over it. Loyalty and friendship hold them together, whatever happen. Each of them knows he can rely on the others, no matter what.
The first book, Out of his League, follows Cole, the drummer. He has just left school and found a job. Stadium has work in the weekends playing in a pub but they all still need to work. Cole works at a pretraining stable for racehorses. The story weaves relationship with Milly his boss’s daughter, together with his involvement with Stadium.
The second book in the series, is Song for Jess. This is Isaac and Jess’s story. Isaac decides he has to give up the rock star dream when he finds out Jess is pregnant. Then he finds away of juggling fatherhood and playing with Stadium. He starts writing their material and his Stadium gets fanbase.
The next in the series is, Highly Strung, Noah’s story. Noah is in relationship with Natalia his violin teacher and has been for the last five years. The relationship has reached a crisis point so Noah isn’t always there for the rest of Stadium. Isaac has written TrainWreck and they think the song will launch them and they get annoyed at Noah for letting them down a couple of times. He gets the message, he needs to decide what’s important to him.
In I Thought I Knew You, Luke, Stadium’s lead singer, is starting to question his choices. He’s working for his father as a builder. He’s starting to wonder if he wants to live in the town he’s always lived in, run his father’s business, and marry a girl he’s known all his life? Or does he want to try and make music his real career? The band has been together for three years now and are still playing at the pub in the weekends. They’ve had some success with Isaac’s latest number ‘Trainwreck’ but they haven’t made it big yet. And then they get offered their big chance. What will he choose to do?
The next six books are due to be released over the next year. They follow Cole, Isaac, Noah, Adam and Luke, now older and wiser as they work to make it as successful musicians.
I live in Paeroa, a small town in New Zealand, with my husband and a black labrador. Most of my books are set in my home town, simply because it has a rich history, and the streets already have names, so do the rivers and the mountain nearby, and the neighbouring towns also have names, so I save time on world building.
I have been writing for seven years. Before that I was a teacher, then a kitchen designer, and for a year, the creator of resources for drug education. But now writing is what I do.
I love creating books about ordinary people doing interesting things. The characters in my story are just a little better looking and more charismatic than in real life, but they think and feel like normal people.
My books cover many genre, action adventure, scifi, historical fiction, and romance. Up until now you won’t find a vampire or werewolf in any them, but in the future, that can’t be completely ruled out.
I wrote Scavenger Hunt to enter it in a national competition, just to see if I could write. It won the competition and really it has all gone on from there.
