I’m only joking, of course. Let’s face facts, most boss’s tend to look more like Henry than Harrison Ford, so anti-dating policies between CEO’s and staff is a good thing.

Writing a relationship between two equals is a totally different story, then again, you are writing fiction. I also like that you touched on the fact that the working relationship could be strained. I’ve been around two coworkers who dated. It was awkward for me to work with them while they were dating, and even worse after they broke up, I shudder to think how it was for them. Of course, this is the stuff good romantic fiction and good tv (Grey’s Anatomy, Ugly Betty, etc) is made of, so who says not to do it? Not someone(ME!!!) who wouldn’t miss an episode or a book, that’s who!

I do have some questions:

1. If you do bend these rules as you did with Anne and Phillipe; I noted that you did so with many conditions that made it ‘okay’. As in, she was his equal in power etc. But, I wonder if you’d ever do so and have the woman have the power in the relationship? She’s the CEO, or the president?

Not many books/stories do that, do they? All tend to let the man lead in the power struggle. A movie I always think of as an example of a woman with more power than the man is Disclosure. Not a good example, nor is it a favorite movie of mine, but it fits with my question.

2. A little bird told me you like to travel, and have either just returned from a trip or are still on it. Would you like to tell us about how many stickers your passport has on it? What has been your favorite travel spot? Why?

3. Writing what you know, is a great way to inject realism into a book, however did any of your friends and colleagues worry that they’d turn up in your books? And did any of your day to day work experiences or the people you met ‘inspire’ any of your characters or stories, even loosely?

That’s all for now, but I’m sure I’ll think of more, thanks again for joining us, Kimber!
