Say "hello" to Michelle Vernal

We're pleased to welcome Michelle Vernal to CLC today. Her latest novel, When We Say Goodbye, published this past fall and she's here to talk about it with us. It's only $1.99 for Kindle, so get your copy today!

Michelle Vernal loves a happy ending. She lives with her husband and their two boys in the beautiful and resilient city of Christchurch, New Zealand. She’s partial to a glass of wine, loves a cheese scone, and has recently taken up yoga—a sight to behold indeed. She writes books that she hopes make you feel you are curled up with your best friend having a cosy chat.

Can you love when all seems lost?

Ellie Perkins life was right on track until her boyfriend Sam suffers a near-fatal car accident, leaving him in a coma and all their future plans in limbo.

Desperately in need of something to fix, Ellie has to find a project and when her grandparents old house is put up for sale, she jumps at the chance. Because, like Ellie, the house is broken. And if she can fix the house, then surely, it's just a matter of time before she and Sam are back on their path to happily-ever-after...

In life, when the worst happens how do you pick up the pieces?

A heart-breaking story of love, loss and the path to forgiveness, perfect for fans of Faith Hogan and Amanda Prowse. To be read with tissues.

What is a favorite compliment you received on your writing?
A reader told me the characters in my books become like friends to her, how lovely is that?

How are you similar to or different from Ellie?
Ellie and I both love second hand clothes! She can be a little backward in coming forward and we’ve both experienced raw grief because Ellie’s emotions were my own when I was the same age as her although our stories are different.

If When We Say Goodbye were made into a movie, who would you cast in the leading roles?
I know it sounds a bit Me Before You but I love Emilia Clarke for Ellie, Richard Madden as Sam and Alex Pettyfer as Joel. I had fun holding the latter two mental auditions! Oh, and of course they’d all need to master the Kiwi accent.

What TV series are you currently binge watching?
The Crown.

If you could go back in time 10 years, what advice would you give yourself?
Be happy with yourself the way you are.

What is the last dream you can vividly remember?
Last night’s dream. I dreamed I was organising a Christmas do for work. The firm was the company I worked for nearly twenty years ago! No idea where that came from.

Thanks to Michelle for chatting with us and to Rachel's Random Resources for arranging the interview.
