Secret Confessions: Cathleen Ross
Author Spotlight: Cathleen Ross
Tell us a little more about your housewife, Nella:
My housewife, Nella is wealthy Mosman old school. She’s very committed to her charity of finding accommodation for children in danger. She beautiful, confident and happily married to a billionaire however, she does have a very dirty secret.
What inspired Nella ‘s story:
Blame Tracey O’Hara. She’s the editor for this project. She called me and said, “You’d be good at writing a Domme. That’s what you do.” I do? Huh? “Okay,” I said.
What was your biggest challenge in writing Nella ‘s story?
Let me tell you, this was the hardest story I’ve ever written in my whole life. I found it really difficult to get into the persona. My daughter tells me I can’t write a Domme because I’m the Omega of the family. Even the dog bosses me around. Poor Tracey had to check my story and get out the kinks and explain how Dommes function. even though Tracey isn’t one. Actually it was the blind leaving the blind. So when I submitted this story I was very relieved when Escape editor Kate Cuthbert said she enjoyed it.
Why will we love Nella?
Nella has a big heart and she’s very creative at coming up with new ways of humbling the love of her life, Michael and extracting his money for her charity. Actually, I admire her. I could take some lessons from her so that my own status rises above the dog in my family.
The Housewives of Sydney series promises that we’ll “find out what goes on behind the doors of the most exclusive addresses in the country”. What was the appeal of joining this series? Similarly, what has been the biggest challenge?
I read through all the stories and loved them. The challenge of doing a series is to catch the essence of the other characters when including them in your scene. This is a very talented group of authors who push the limits in terms of what they can do and it’s fun being part of that. They caught the scenarios and characters well. It’s going to be a successful series and reveal some very dirty secrets.
