Caring

Tell us about Love at First Flight:
Love at First Flight is about how a family is threatened by an irresistible attraction between strangers. Mel is living the dream. She’s a successful GP, married to a charming anaesthetist and raising a beautiful family in their plush home in Perth. But when she boards a flight to Melbourne, she meets Matt and her picture perfect Stepford life unravels as she falls in love for the first time ever. What begins as a flirty conversation between strangers quickly develops into a hot and obsessive affair with disastrous consequences neither Mel nor Matt could have ever seen coming. Mel’s dream life turns into her worst nightmare. Love at First Flight challenges readers with the questions – What would you risk to be with the love of your life? And what if your soul mate is the one who will destroy you?

What inspired this novel?
I’ve always been inspired by the tragic love story, the story of great love that just can’t be. My favourite book The Bridges of Madison County stayed with me years after reading it and played on my mind. Then I read Twilight and out of nowhere I had to write my own book. Before this I had never entertained the idea of writing. But the longing in Twilight and the knowing that the one you love is the one that is dangerous for you resonated with me and I just had to write about that. So with the themes of desire and danger, I wrote a book about a married mother, because I wanted to write of what I know. I wanted to bring the great love story into the world of the typical suburban mum who is chasing after kids, working and running a home. I wanted her to have that Romeo and Juliet moment. So I wrote ‘Love at First Flight’.

What are you reading right now?
I’m reading Lethal in Love – Episode 1 by Aussie author Michelle Somers, it’s a sexy romance and murder mystery rolled into one and so very different from what I normally read but I’m really enjoying it.

Number one thing to do on your bucket list?
Eat a souvlaki in Santorini

Best thing about being an Aussie?
Only one thing? Hmm, Tim Tams.

What you want readers to know about the romance genre?
That romance writers are intelligent, creative and passionate and that comes out in our stories.

What have you got in store for your readers in 2016?
My follow up to Love at First Flight called Flat White With One may just be released this year!

What were your big achievements of 2015?
Becoming a published author with HarperCollins ranks right up there but my biggest thrill was that the charity I created, Meals by Mums which makes individuals meals from scratch from Perth’s homeless, notched up 1000 meals. I also held a book club night as a fundraiser for the Indigenous Literacy Foundation which raised $3,400 so that is something I look back on as a big achievement. In other 2015 news, I learned to crochet and I survived my first year with two teenagers in the house.

 

 

Love at First Flight
Tess Woods

A family is threatened by an irresistible attraction in this compelling debut that will appeal to fans of Liane Moriarty and Anita Shreve.

Looking back on it now, I can see it was instant. The second we locked eyes. Boom. Just like that. The me I had spent a lifetime perfecting began its disintegration from that moment. And despite the carnage it brought to all our lives, I still don’t regret it. 

What would you risk to be with the love of your life? And what if your soul mate is the one who will destroy you?

Mel is living the dream. She’s a successful GP, married to a charming anaesthetist and raising a beautiful family in their plush home in Perth. But when she boards a flight to Melbourne, she meets Matt and her picture perfect Stepford life unravels as she falls in love for the first time ever.

What begins as a flirty conversation between strangers quickly develops into a hot and obsessive affair with disastrous consequences neither Mel nor Matt could have ever seen coming. Mel’s dream life turns into her worst nightmare.

Love at First Flight will take everything you believe about what true love is and spin it on its head.
