I am an author writing paranormal genre, mostly paranormal romance presently.
I started writing fiction when very young with six page stories that sometimes got me into trouble at school for being too long.
I have written lots of academic and commercial material in the past and was almost desperate to go back to fiction by the time I actually did.
I have just completed book four in The Seven Spell Saga and it is currently being edited, it is titled, The Sealed Door.
There are three books in The Seven Spell Saga already published for kindle, nook, iPad and they have been a joy to write.
I have started book five but because I am also writing another book in a slightly different genre I am often torn as to which book has priority.
I write in a room of a house, which has a very large window overlooking rural land with woods in the background. The view is great and the changing of the seasons is wonderfully evident. There is a particular stretch of the woods where a stand of smaller trees have the appearance of animals, a horse is obvious to me and was the inspiration for Cedric. It's an optical illusion of course but I like to see it emerge as the spring and summer cover the branches with foliage.
My books, Spellbinding, The Spell Breaker, and The Seven Spell all in The Seven Spell Saga are romantic, lyrical, sprinkled with the motifs of magic, love, friendship, time travel, and immortality.
We are all influenced by the past and much of my writing at the moment explores the strange coincidences that can happen to people.
In thinking about my present work, I compared my stance on fate once to that of the famous author Thomas Hardy, having read much of his work. Only in so much as I feel fate is less the heavy weight it is in his work, and more like the internet, one great big cobweb.
It is not until book six that you will meet some of the more topical character types within paranormal romance books.
I wanted my characters to strike real chords with readers, they had become so real to me that it seemed very important to me that readers could also picture and empathize with the characters.
One of my characters actually has their own twitter account, although not too many followers just yet. LOL I will leave readers to guess which character. Anyone who has read any of The Seven Spell Saga books will be able to guess who.
