I never wanted to write War and Peace, I’ve always just wanted to be funny. Kosova Kosovo, my first book, was written to entertain, but events took over. Hard to get a good laugh out of wartime though if anyone can do it, it’s a Brit. The orchid world of Miami, on the other hand, was perfect. My husband, Martin Motes, one of the characters featured in The Orchid Thief, told me to forget about Kosovo and concentrate on the real Balkan intrigue, murderous thoughts and wild conspiracy of the orchid scene in South Florida. It worked. Everyone loves Orchid Territory- guys just as much. From ‘absolutely hilarious’ (Colorado) to "a hoot" (Memphis); "a kick", Iowa; "Thanks for the great laugh book. Fabulous read" South Australia; "Total entertainment" St. Louis; to "Bravo! I’m waiting for the film." Singapore.From the Inside Flap:
"In that curious, semi-closed world of South Florida's orchid growers, passions run high, politics are to the death and nothing is more important than the prize at the Miami Orchid Expo. With her perceptive eye and vivid pen, the English author creates a charming story full of humor and wicked comedy. In among the orchids and the long knives of a decades-long feud are the glorious anthropological insights into social interactions among the characters of the author's world. There is also romance to keep us in suspense till the last page." - Henry Oakeley, The Orchid Review, March 2006
