Tilly Tennant was born in Dorset, the oldest of four children, but now lives in Staffordshire with a family of her own. After years of dismal and disastrous jobs, including paper plate stacking, shop girl, newspaper promotions and waitressing (she never could carry a bowl of soup without spilling a bit), she decided to indulge her passion for the written word by embarking on a degree in English and creative writing, graduating in 2009 with first class honours. She wrote her first novel in 2007 during her first summer break at university and has not stopped writing since. She also works as a freelance fiction editor, and considers herself very lucky that this enables her to read many wonderful books before the rest of the world gets them.

I very much your interview and the book sounds like it’s just up my alley! Thanks for the giveaway.
I reckon you have one of the best author pics I’ve seen!! Genius 😀
Thank you! 🙂
The book cover is pretty, it conveys the novel well but its not really eye-catching or attention-drawing. Maybe try another one? With realistic pictures instead of drawings? Just a suggestion. 🙂
Thank you Stacey, but I’m afraid I’m not able to change it now. I’ll pass your comments on to the publishers though 🙂
I like the cover of your book, The drawings and colours are simple but they posess warmth and beauty..
Book sounds good! Love to read it!

I have read the little village bakery. And am half way through Christmas at the little village bakery but don’t want it to end!! I love them! Will you be doing anymore little village bakery? As I love all the characters and the story line it’s brilliant!!
Hi Sarah, no plans to do any more yet but as soon as my editor is up for it so am I! I’m thrilled to hear you’ve enjoyed them. x
I just finished reading the Summer of Secrets and I loved it! Will you be writing a sequel to it? I want to know what happens next with Allie. Thank you for all of your books. I feel like I know your characters personally and live where they live. Your stories bring me happiness! Thank you!
Hi Deana, thank you so much for your kind words! I’m still in talks with my publisher about a sequel and as soon as I know I’ll announce something 😊
Hi Tilly, I was first introduced to your books last year after I eased down from work a bit and my daughter bought me ‘The little village bakery’. I was totally hooked and struggled to put it down, not wanting to get to the end as I didn’t want to it to finish! Imagine my excitement when I was then gifted ‘Christmas at the little village bakery’! It was so good to read a continuation of the lifes of Millie, Dylan, Spencer and everyone else in Honeybourne. Now I have just finished reading ‘Mishaps in Millrise’ and just loved it! Never stop doing what you’re doing. You are one brilliant writer, always adding so much life to every character and injecting each chapter with humour and an anticipation of what is going to happen next. All I can say is thank you for enriching my life with your brilliant talent x
