Dull security or risky freedom – which would you choose? With her marriage in pieces, shy Cali Summers is faced with this decision and hits the world of fast love on an internet dating app. Using room 102 in the hotel where she works as her dating ‘lair’, she opens herself up to a world of sex, lies, deception, as well as personal discovery and passionate love. With a charming F1 engineer, a handsome army officer and her adulterous ex all on the scene, a predictable love match is far from on the cards.

Our Q&A with Nicola May
Describe yourself using three words? Fun, Feisty and Ambitious
What inspired you to write your first novel?
Working it Out is about Ruby, who on being made redundant decides to embark on 12 jobs in 12 months to find the one of her dreams. After taking on many random temp jobs myself, the idea was born.
What time of day do you like to write? When I start a new novel I write all
day and sometimes into the night. I write in bed and often lose track of time.
What is your favourite book and why?
The Shell Seekers by Rosamunde Pilcher. The depth of her characters and her description of places and situations evoke true emotions.
How did you pick the title of your book?
I was actually walking in the sunshine with a friend brainstorming and Love Me Tinder was the obvious choice, as it’s all about the Tinder dating app, plus of course, it is a spin on one of the greatest love songs; Love Me Tender by Elvis.
Are the characters in your book based on real people?
A lot of my characters are based on parts of people I know. I have named and shamed a few of the real bad dates I had when I was dating on Tinder!
What’s your favourite word? Nincompoop
If you were a colour what would it be? Yellow, as I see myself as bright and
Yellow, as I see myself as bright and happy.
Do you plan your story beforehand or go with the flow?
I get the idea then just run with it and see where the characters lead me.
Who is your favourite Author?
If you could give any literary villain a happy ending who would you chose?
Captain Hook from Peter and Wendy. Purely because he could play the flute and
the harpsichord and loved Wordsworth and Coleridge.
Are you working on a new project?
I am currently in the most difficult stage of being an author, deciding on a new idea for my next novel.
Do you have any upcoming events our members can attend?
I will be talking and signing books at the Lightbox Literary Festival taking place in Woking on April 22.
Huge thanks, Nicola, for appearing on my blog today.
