Our October featured author received the most visits to her IAN member page in the month of September 2015
I live on a smallholding in West Wales with my husband and rescue dog. (or should that be dog and rescue husband?) I love writing stories with twists and unexpected endings, because life is like that. I write stories with layers, stories within stories, about flawed, real characters who live. I draw on personal experience, using it to create emotional depth in situations I can, thankfully, only imagine. I love tackling challenging subjects, child-abduction and Nazi death-camps being but two: loss, love and relationships are major factors in my writing as they are in real life.
Like one of my characters, I'm an artist and I see writing and painting as very similar pastimes. Both require keen observation and a deep understanding of subject, seeing beyond the surface of places, people and situations and imparting a deeper meaning. Both media require drawing a picture that tells a story, be it in paint or text that the reader or viewer can add to with their own imagination and life experience.
Books I love reading are those that take me to places I've never been, be it morally, physically, spiritually or emotionally, that teach me something about myself, inspire me and make me think. I hope the novels I write will do that for my readers.
