After a highly successful career in corporate communications, Avril Tremayne decided she needed a little more romance in her life.
And having tried her hand at shoe selling, nursing, teaching, and short-order cooking, before braving the corporate ladder as a high flying executive mixing it up with the business elite and an occasional celebrity, Avril has gathered more than enough raw material to kick-start a swag of tall tales. Her latest book, Wanting Mr Wrong, is out now.
Take a look at the books that have influenced Avril.
I have no idea how I got hold of this book – published in WWII – but it’s one of the first books I remember reading as a child.
Six English children stumble upon a German spy hiding in their ‘clubhouse’ – the only unoccupied house on their street. When the spy sets out to rendezvous with his contact, the children set off in pursuit.
How I wished I were one of those kids!
But I’m scared to read it now, in case my adult perceptions spoil that priceless first memory of kids being the ones to save the day.
