Blog Tour & Giveaway: While the Baby Sleeps by Stephanie Hazeltine!

Author Interview!

Can you, for those who don't know you already, tell something about yourself and how you became an author?

I’ve been a teacher for more than ten years. I had my first child in late 2019 and spent my maternity leave in lockdown with her. When she napped, I was so bored and one day I told a friend that I’d love to write a book but I don’t know how. She recommended some courses and two years later, here I am.

What are some of your pet peeves?

Noisy eaters and people who park in parent carparks but don’t have kids.

Where were you born/grew up at?

I was born in Melbourne, Australia and grew up in the South East suburbs of Melbourne.

If you knew you'd die tomorrow, how would you spend your last day?

Spending as much time as possible outside with my husband and the kids – riding bikes, swimming, kicking a ball around, dancing to music. Doing the things my kids love so that I can see them smile and laugh. Then have a good bottle of wine at the end of the day.

Who is your hero and why?

My grandma and grandie are my heroes. They are in their late eighties/early nineties and live every day to it’s fullest. They have lived, worked and helped people all around the world, including taking in several young kids in Indonesia when they were living there. Even now, when they’ve had to slow down physically, it hasn’t slowed down their desire to learn and find joy in simple things.

What kind of world ruler would you be?

A terrible one! I’m hopeless at making decisions. I can’t even decide what to eat for dinner each night.

Four mothers.
One body.
Many secrets.

Marnie is a first-time mum in a new town, paralysed by anxiety and pushing away her police-officer husband.

Peyton is a teen mum, living with her parents and longing to behave like other teenagers her age.

Fleur looks like the perfect picture of a mum who is coping and loving motherhood, but no one knows that under her beautiful dress, her body is covered in bruises caused by her husband.

Amalia, a single mum, lost her parents in tragic circumstances and will do anything to honour her mother’s dying wish and protect the family she has.

When these women meet at mothers’ group, they bond over feeding schedules and baby products, but when a local is found murdered, they discover it’s not their babies who will tie them to one another forever.

Each woman has a motive to kill and secrets to hide, but do they know who the real enemy is?
