You are a very well known young adult author. What made you decide to transition into contemporary romance written for adults?
I always intended to transition into adult fiction at some point but contemporary fiction was something I considered doing in a few years’ time. Alas, the characters of On Dublin Street were persistent and decided they were too impatient to wait for me, so at the beginning of this year I started to tell their story, going back to it whenever I could, until during the summer when I realized it was ready to be heard.
