the swing. Enjoying a cool lemonade, he invited her to grab a soft drink from
the fridge as well. It was a warm summer day, and the air showed no sign of
cooling down. A lot of people in Hobart were weary of the unusual hot spell for
the very southern Australian city.

Zach, she’s a dragon. I’m sure she does it on purpose. She doesn’t like me. She
thinks I’m spoilt.”

liked school, and she enjoyed her classes. And even though English wasn’t her
worst subject, it certainly was the toughest one, with Miss Peterson piling on
homework one after the other.

“Actually I don’t know! Isn’t she Sophie’s good friend?”
They used to do the boxing stuff together, and since Soph’s carrying a baby,
they go and enjoy coffee and cake instead every once in a while.”

~~ Iris Blobel: Back to the Basics Interview ~~
- Who you are and what do you write?
Hi, and thanks for having me on your blog today, Emmy. I’m Iris Blobel, author of contemporary romance, mostly set in Australia. I was born and raised in Germany, but have been living in Australia for the last twenty years – AND LOVING IT! I’m married with two beautiful girls and when I’m not looking after them I sit down and write stories about couples who are desperate to find the “love of their life”.
- When did you start writing?
I started a few years back, putting my day dreams onto paper … or as we nowadays would probably say, onto the screen. More a numbers person I never even dreamt about the idea of being an author. But, hey, after 10+ books on the market, that’s what I am and I’m really, really proud of it.
- Why did you start?
I’d say boredom – no TV, young children in bed, hubby in the shed … and the voice in my head annoying me … so I started.
- What motivates you to keep doing what you’re doing?
I love it. I love the idea of bringing couples together. I love coming up with stories. I go on holidays and know the places we go to need to have a story – so I come up with something.
- Where can folks find you?
