She’s written a guest post on The World of The Scruffy and she’s just published her romantic debut novel Billy and Me . In an exclusive interview with Self Service, endearing actress and author Giovanna Fletcher lets us in on her dreams for the future, the scariest thing she’s ever done and a guilty pleasure we absolutely concur with.

Self Service: Could you tell us a bit about your book Billy and Me?

Giovanna Fletcher: On the surface Billy and Me is about a very normal girl (Sophie May) who falls in love with a huge teen heartthrob (actor Billy Buskin), but it’s far more than that. It’s a story about forgiveness, following your dreams and friendship.

SSUK: Are there any biographical elements in it?

GF: Hmm… I’d be lying if I said somewhere in it there aren’t tiny elements of truth, but that’s only a tiny seed in the whole thing. There’s one character who does actually stem from a real person and that’s an elderly lady called Molly. She’s based on a lady I used to work with in a local florist when I was thirteen. A gorgeous lady who I still think of regularly.

SSUK: Now that you’ve ticked off getting published, do you still have dreams for the future?

GF: Yes! To write more books, to get back on stage to my acting and to have lots of babies. Ha!

SSUK: You’re a fan of the tee brand Junk Food Clothing. What is it about this label that you love?

GF: It’s just so fun! Each piece comes with its own personality. Plus, Junk Food tees are always comfy. A major bonus for me!

SSUK: Who inspires you – in life, in fashion, in your art?

GF: Ah, everything inspires me. Everyone has a story to share, a heartbreak to dwell on or a smile to give. So to break that down, life inspires me.

SSUK: Do you have any advice for young aspiring writers?

GF: Just sit down and start writing. Go for it. Unless you have something written down on the page nothing can happen. Oh, and read lots – anything and everything.

Here are a dozen facts about Gi
