Lily Velden lives on the east coast of Australia, her family having emigrated from Holland when she was a child.
She’s both a left and right brain person, holding qualifications in both Finance and Fine Arts. She tells her friends that her way with numbers will make her a profitable artist and writer… one day.
Lily has always had a love of language and a beautifully crafted sentence, and admits to having a fetish for collecting quotes, poems, and song lyrics. What she won’t admit to is how many notebooks she’s filled with those quotes… Her fascination carries on into her artworks where she often incorporates text. When a shoulder injury slowed down her art practice she decided to explore her love of the written word more fully and began writing. “I’ll paint my pictures with words.”Not that she’s abandoned artmaking in its entirety—Lily collaborates on the designs for all her book covers.
There are many things Lily loves, here are just a few of the PG rated ones: a good laugh (all the better if caused by a naughty joke), the smell of freshly baked goods and mown grass, a smile from a stranger, rainbows after the rain, and witnessing a promise kept.

Sebastian Robson, I guess, had been a little bit coerced into joining a televised dating game called Written in the Stars. His best friend, Declan, primped him, coached him, practically did a makeover so he would have a chance to win a date with a handsome prize. However, after all that was said and done, Sebastian lack of filter leaked through, much to Declan's misery but to the delight of the potential date.
This is a very, very short read but within a few minutes of fast reading, snorting in laughter was unexpected. This is a true comedy of errors that ends happily for Sebastian. It's 26 pages of fun and laughter that shows being honest may just be the best way to go if one looks for a happily ever after.
Highly recommended short and light read.
