‘If you love me, I’m yours…’

Maud didn’t mind being boring, not really. She had a sensible job, clothes, and love life… if you counted an overbearing ex who had thanked her, rolled over and was snoring before she even realised he’d begun! She could tolerate not fulfilling her dreams, if her parents would pay her one compliment about the only thing she was passionate about in life: her art.

Dot should have fit in with her flamboyant and slightly eccentric family of talented artists, but somehow, she was an anomaly who couldn’t paint. She tried hard to be part of their world by becoming an art agent extraordinaire, but she dreamed of finding her own voice.

Dot’s brother Nate, a smoulderingly sexy and famous artist, was adored by everyone. His creative talent left them in awe of his ability to capture such passion on canvas. Women worshipped him, and even Dot’s friend Maud flushed and bumped into things when he walked into a room, but a tragic event in his past had left him emotionally and physically scarred, and reluctant to face the world again.

Someone was leaving exquisite little paintings on park benches, with a tag saying, ‘If you love me, I’m yours’. The art was so fresh and cutting-edge, that it generated a media frenzy and a scramble to discover where the mystery artist could be hiding. The revelation of who the prodigious artist was interlinked Maud, Dot and Nate’s lives forever, but their worlds came crashing down.

Were bonds of friendship, love and loyalty strong enough to withstand fame, success and scandal?

Five fun facts about Lizzie:

  1. I invented my first product when I was in college and it took ten years of research and development to bring to market. I worked during the day selling products I designed from a market stall, to pay for the patent and production costs.
  2. I paint huge landscapes and have exhibited them locally. I really enjoy painting with acrylics as they are messy but dry very quickly. I love to paint or write by the sea as I find it inspiring and beautiful to look at.
  3. I often grab my laptop and write my books in cafe’s, in my car while I’m waiting to collect my children from school, or in a tent in the middle of a freezing field while they are warming up for sporting competitions!
  4. I am allergic to chocolate, which is such an annoying allergy to have, but at least it’s something I can easily avoid. I haven’t tasted it for so many years that the scent doesn’t register with me now and people could eat a huge slab of chocolate cake in front of me and I probably wouldn’t notice!
  5. I used to have a pet Peacock! My mum always wanted chickens as we had a long garden, but my dad said we had enough animals with two dogs and a cat. On a business trip his colleagues thought it would be funny to order the new pet for him. The Peacock arrived and my dad was very angry, but the Peacock stayed with us and lived in our garden for many, many years! He nested on the flat roof and luckily we lived by a field, so he wandered there too.
