It Started With A Click: The Story of an eBay Romance


Free from Friday 15th November until Tuesday 19th November*

It’s not unusual to find romance online through internet dating – but who would ever think of finding a partner on eBay?

That possibility never occurs to Catherine, happily single and playing the field. Until she goes on eBay in search of tickets to an England rugby match and gets rather more than she was bidding for…

After winning an auction for a pair of tickets, she strikes up a friendship with their seller, Damien. Fueled by their common interest in rugby, their relationship moves forward very quickly. The more they find out about each other, the more they appear to have in common. But having never met, and with over 200 miles between them, can this really be the start of something special?

Narrated by Catherine, and heavily based on a true story, It Started With A Click includes collections of emails and messages sent between Catherine and Damien as they came to know each other very well.

About the Author

Estelle Wilkinson was born and raised in the north of England. She worked as an administrator from leaving school and enjoyed life to the full. One part of her life that she thoroughly enjoyed was reading. Since childhood, reading had always been an escape. While at school, she had thrived in English Literature and looked forward to creative writing tasks. She’d just never had the confidence to take that any further. Until now…

In 2003 she had a chance encounter with someone on eBay and their relationship blossomed. The story had been retold and people had suggested it would make a great book. It had never occurred to her to publish one though as, bar what she did at school, she had no history of creative writing and little knowledge of the publishing world. However, after hearing about self-publishing, she decided to take the plunge and released a memoir in February 2013. Following some very mixed reviews, she took a very brave and bold decision to rework the book and make changes suggested in the more negative reviews. The new version, It Started With A Click: The Story of an eBay Romance has been re-released in November 2013 and she is currently working on its sequel.

Now living with her husband and two children, she still works as a self-employed administrator for two very different clients: one a national charity and the other a local builder. Between that and her family, she is certainly kept on her toes. The love of creative writing she had as a child has come flooding back to the surface and she’s now looking to try her hand at a fictional novel once the Clicked series is complete.
