Blog Tour - Q&A - Nice Day for a White Wedding by A.L. Michael

I am really pleased to be taking part in this tour for the second book in The House on Camden Square series - Nice Day for a White Wedding by A.L. Michael. 
So lets take a look at the book and then read on for a short Q&A with A.L. Michael.
About the book:
Sometimes, Happy Ever After is where the real trouble begins…
Chelsea Donnolly wasn’t supposed to amount to anything. But if there’s one thing the bad girl from the estate liked better than trouble, it was a challenge. So, to the amusement of her best friends Evie, Mollie and Ruby – and the disbelief of her teachers – this bad girl turned good.
These days, Chelsea is the kind of girl people are proud to know – and, after a surprise trip to Venice, she has a ring on her finger to prove it. But to get there, she’s had to learn to keep her deepest secrets from everyone – even her fiancĂ©. And when wedding preparations threaten to blow her cover, Chelsea can’t help but wonder: in her battle to the top, might she have left the best parts of herself behind?


Available to buy from Amazon UK


Q&A with A.L. Michael

What do you like to do when you're not writing?

I work as a creative facilitator, using writing to help us create positive relationships with our bodies. Which means I like yoga and spend a lot of time trying to make my favourite treats as healthy as possible. I often fail. I like wandering around London, or down by the canal near my home. I also work for a mystery dining company, so I spend a lot of time eating in fancy places and writing about it, which is great fun, but means I've got to up that gym time!

If you were stranded on a desert island what three books would you want with you?

Shadows of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafron, Catcher in the Rye by J.D Salinger and something massive I've never read, like War and Peace, or Moby Dick. If you're stuck on a desert island, you may as well make good use of your time!

Can you choose three words that best describe your personality?

Awkward, enthusiastic, curious.

What was the last book you read?

I'm still reading book 2 in the Outlander series, (even though I sneakily watched the series before I finished it) I'm now obsessed - can't wait for a summer holiday so I can read more!

What did you enjoy most about writing Nice Day for a White Wedding?

I loved getting to revisit my character's stories, I'd fallen a bit in love with Chelsea when I wrote her in Goodbye Ruby Tuesday, so I was excited to explore her past, and to get to write Ruby again in the flashbacks. I also had just been to Lake Garda again, after visiting years ago, so it was nice to use those experiences and bring the Italian setting to life.

Of all the characters you have created, can you pick a favourite and why?

I really loved writing Megan in Driving Home for Christmas, because it felt so organic, her story just sort of appeared and I was just telling it for her, almost. She also wasn't as angry as a lot of my other characters, she was sharp and smart and kind!

Thank you so much to A.L. Michael for taking part in the Q&A!
