Sean Johnson's life as a small-town farmhand has been nothing but predictable, but when he meets Sophia Hillingdon at the local animal sanctuary, she gets him out of an eighteen-year rut, away from the mundane existence on the farm, and a grieving, drunken father.
Sophia is the first person who understands him and makes him believe that he might get out of their small town, who tells him, he has the potential to be whoever he wants to be and do whatever he wants to do.
But as their relationship unfolds, it is the most devastating of news that will change both of them forever.
7 Days With You Excerpt
Her face was nearer than it had ever been. Her skin felt smooth and warm. All I could do was lean further into her, losing myself in the moment. And then there were her piercing blue eyes-even more extraordinary up close. Before I knew it, I’d brought my hands to her chest as our parting lips collided. We kissed for hours, inhabiting each other with such force as our bodies rolled across the cooled grass. She was the change I had been searching for. It was the first time I realized; I could be anywhere in the world, but nowhere without her.

Interview with Hugo Driscoll
How did you come up with name of this book?
The story idea came from a dream, and then from there, it reminded me of how so little time people often have when they find love due to a variety of circumstances; hence the title.
Do you read yourself and if so what is your favorite genre?
I'm an avid bookworm. I think you have to be if you want to be a writer! Regarding genres, I don't necessarily have a favourite, but I like coming of age stories and books about everyday life as opposed to fantasy and horror, etc.
Do you prefer to write in silence or with noise? Why?
A mixture of both. I can't work in a library (it reminds me of school and last-minute essay writing), but I can happily work in a coffee shop where there is some chitter chatter but not enough to disturb your train of thought.
If you could choose one of your books to be made into a movie
which would it be and why?
It would definitely be this one. I think the pathos and drama are suited to a Hollywood script.
Do you write one book at a time or do you have several going at a time?
I can only focus on one book at a time. I need to live and breathe my characters and plot, and if I'm focusing on different books, I that approach would be disturbed.
