A Peek into the office of Nicky Wells, author
It’s always fascinating to see where people work, and I guess authors are no exceptions. So here’s a peek into my world. I am very lucky these days to have a proper, dedicated office again; for the longest time, I wrote in the dining room but since our recent house move, I have bagged a proper authorly space for me to spread out… and stay spread out.
Rather than going into lengthy descriptions, I’ve taken a few pictures for you. What’s that they say? A picture says more than a thousand words? That means you’ve just saved yourself four thousand words worth of reading!
A note on the décor though. It’s not mine. I inherited it from the previous owner. Yes, it was a deliberate choice; it was convenient, easy and ready-made. But I wouldn’t normally choose dark brown furniture, nor would I willingly install green-and-brown coloured blinds (I don’t think they show up in the photo too well, thank goodness: you’d think I’m mad). Over time, I plan to fix the colour of the blinds and probably will paint the walls too. But these are superficial details and in the meantime I find that the masculine feel (for a man’s office it was, once upon a time) kind of inspires me to get into the head of my male lead. Must be all the residual male vibes in the workspace air…
So without further ado, I give you: my office!
First, the view as you open the door:
Next, the view outside (such as it is; sadly, there’s no lush valleys or seaside vistas here… just the drive way and, if I turn, the front door, haw haw haw. I usually wave to the postman!)
Yup, and that’s it. What do you think? Does it match your expectations of a romantic novelists’ workspace?

About Sophie’s Turn
Slapper. Slut. Adulteress. These are hardly words that Sophie Penhalligan would normally use to describe herself. Yet this is exactly how she is behaving, all things considered, even if she isn’t quite married to Tim yet. And it’s all happening because her past is coming to tempt her! Nine years ago, she met her teenage idol and rock star extraordinaire, Dan, up close and personal. Well, almost. Now Dan has crash-landed back in her life. How could Tim ever stand a chance against the charming, handsome singer? How could she?
Sophie, now twenty-eight and a budding newspaper journalist, is happily embroiled in a relationship with Tim, her boyfriend of two years. Until recently, she was confident that Tim would eventually propose—probably as soon as he could get his act together. But just as Tim’s persistent inaction is beginning to cast a cloud over their relationship, Dan’s sudden reappearance turns Sophie’s world upside down. Thus unfolds a roller-coaster of events including an ill-fated trip to Paris with Tim, a night of unfulfilled romance with Dan, Sophie and Tim’s engagement party gate-crashed by Dan, and Sophie’s professional secondment to accompany Dan’s band on their revival tour—at Dan’s special request and very much against her will.
And then, one fine day in Paris, Sophie suddenly finds herself engaged to Dan while her erstwhile fiancé Tim is... well, doing whatever it is Tim does back in London. What is she to do now? Who wouldn’t give anything to meet their favorite star, let alone marry him?
Find out how Sophie gets into this impossible situation, and how she turns it around, in Sophie’s Turn, the honest, funny and sometimes bittersweet story of one woman’s entanglement with a rock star.
Sophie’s Turn is available in Kindle edition from Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk and many other Amazon sites. The paperback edition is also available from Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk. In addition, you can obtain Sophie’s Turn from Barnes & Noble.
