For every book I write I tend to spend a day or two procrastinating on Pinterest first. If you find yourself at a loose end, pop over and have a look, then let me know if you agree with my choices!

What’s funny is how characters develop in my head as I get further into the story and planning. Sometimes I’ll go back to the mood board and think ‘really’ that was who I picked as inspiration! Other times I’m amazed that I got it so bang on. The whole exercise is probably just an excuse to look at lovely pictures of houses, cafes, clothes and gorgeous men instead of taking the leap and writing the first line of the book. Enjoy x

Jenny Oliver wrote her first book on holiday when she was ten years old. Illustrated with cut-out supermodels from her sister's Vogue, it was an epic, sweeping love story not so loosely based Dynasty. Since then Jenny has gone on to get an English degree and a job in publishing that's taught her what it takes to write a novel (without the help of the supermodels). She wrote her first book The Parisian Christmas Bake Off on the beach in a notebook that would end up covered in sand each afternoon and damp from the sea. Nowadays her inspiration comes from her love of all things vintage, a fascination with other people’s relationships and an unwavering belief in happy ever after! Jenny's latest title, The Sunshine and Biscotti Club, set in sunny Tuscany, is your perfect holiday reading! Follow her on Twitter @JenOliverBooks

  1. I do this too! Pinterest is great for ‘reseach.’ Seriously though, it does help in creating the picture in my mind of scenes and people. Looking forward to reading your next book 🙂


    1. Hi Melissa,

      It’s addictive, isn’t it?! It helps me as a starting point for the setting and characters and then I can wander off and let them come to life in my head as real people.

      So pleased you’ve enjoyed the series – and the Pins…the Matthew McConaughey’s are my fave 😉

      Jenny x
