Hi Lorraine and Pam,
 
Welcome to JJ!
Please summarise Million Dollar Que$tion in 20 words or less. 


Wealthy woman loses everything just as impoverished single mother wins a million. How does luck and money affect their lives?

What was the idea/inspiration for your novel? 

Wondering how people deal with extreme changes in fortune.

Please tell us about the characters in your book. 

Olivia is a ruthless career-obsessed workaholic who ends up broke and homeless, Rosie Dixon is a sweet naïve mother of two still pining for her ex-husband.

What scene did you most enjoy writing? 

The scene where Rosie wins a million pounds. It was fun imagining what that might feel like when you’re down to your last penny and how hard it would be to believe your luck.

… and what scene was the hardest? 

The charity event where we meet Olivia. Trying to explain her hedge fund career without drowning in boring financial details and to make an over-privileged cynical character sympathetic.

Did you travel to any places?

Pam went to Marbella and we both took a trip to the Isle of Skye. We spent a lot our childhood up there and it was a great excuse to go back.

Do you have a favourite place you go to for inspiration or a favourite activity? 

Lorraine goes out to hang with her horses …

 
 
 
 
and Pam goes to her allotment (community garden) or walks the dog. 
 
Finally ladies, what has been the best part of your writing journey so far? 

Having a reason to talk to each other on the phone every day. Meeting lots of great people – authors, bloggers and book reviewers. They have been awesome. 

Wishing you success ladies.
