Chelle Pimblott Interview Published on: 13, Oct 2020

Where were you born? Since how long have you been living in the suburbs of Melbourne, Australia?

Melbourne, and I've lived here all my life

When were you first drawn to writing?

I always loved creative writing at school, and always dreamed of being an author

How has been the journey of 20 years with your significant other?

A real rollercoaster!

Why did you choose the romance genre?

It's what I love to read, thanks to my Grandmother

Do you remember your first performance with a local band?

Absolutely! The singer passed me the microphone as part of his crowd participation stunt, and then asked me to back up for them

What inspired you to give making cakes into a business a go?

I love creating, eating and making cakes. I've been doing them since my late teens.

How did you begin writing the Built for Love series?

After my Sneaky Love Series, the character of James started knocking on my door and Kami was just the perfect girl to join him

Do you wish to write poetry in the coming future?

No, poetry is not my thing. It would probably end up being a dirty Limerick or something!

Who inspired the character of Dan in "Sneaking Around"?

Dan is the dream guy, he's a mixture of a few people I know!

Which book took the longest to write in the Sneaky Love series?

Built for Trouble. Joseph was trouble my name and title

What would you do if your boyfriend dumped you at your parent's 30th wedding anniversary party?

Party hard and say see ya later

How has your writing changed over time? What has been a major influence on you as a writer?

I've learned to be more myself in my writing, and not who I think I should be. Other authors inspire me, I read almost as much as I write

Criticism, whether constructive or otherwise is part and parcel of any art form. How do you deal with reviews of your books- both positive and negative?

I think you have to take them all on the chin. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. You can't make everyone happy.

What book ideas are you currently working on?

I have a sibling 3 book series currently in the works, as well as another standalone.

What do you think of AllAuthor? Has this website been helpful to you?

AllAuthor is great, it's helpful with promo's and getting your book out there for readers to see and hopefully enjoy.
