Caroline’s new book, What Happened on Floor 34? is based in a newspaper office. Rose, works for one of the country’s biggest newspapers as the Day Editor and Will Frost is the Night Editor.
When Rose gets to the office, Will has already left. When Rose leaves, Will arrives. They are connected in so many ways but never have any physical contact.
Will then disappears from floor 34 without a trace and Rose takes on the role of Night Editor to try and figure out what happened to him.
Covering these shifts, Rose is alone on the 34th floor, and whatever happened to Will is very connected to what happens to her.
Caroline added: “I tend to anchor things from settings that I know or somewhere that I’ve been.
“Even though I’ve worked in newspaper offices, the characters and storyline are completely fictional.”
Caroline’s books are now sold all over the world, and she explained that seeing them in other languages is ‘surreal’.
She said: “Every time I see a foreign cover, and they do such an amazing job, it’s just completely surreal.
“It’s absolutely amazing, and the messages I get on Instagram and Twitter from everyone are amazing too.”
What Happened on Floor 34? is available to pre-order now, and will be released on Thursday, January 19.
