  Tell Us Your Backstory with Lisa Ireland It’s a cliché, I know, but I have wanted to be a writer for as long as I can remember. As a child I loved to read and I devoured books faster than my parents could provide them. To make up the shortfall, I started making up stories and producing my [...]

Tell Us Your Backstory with Sandy Vaile Hi, I’m Sandy Vaile, and I’m not content with a story unless there’s a courageous heroine and a dead body. When I’m not devising horrible things to do to fictional characters, I mentor new writers through the Novelist’s Circle critiquing group, [...]

Tell Us Your Backstory with Kelly Lyonns People ask that question. You know the one “What do you do?” If they’ve known you a while they append a “now”. When I answer I’m writing they raise their eyebrows in interest and ask something like “Oh, what have you written?” At this point [...]

    TELL US YOUR BACKSTORY with Danielle Hawkins I started trying to write – trying properly, not just thinking vaguely that one day when I grew up I’d quite like to be a writer – when I was at home on maternity leave with a small baby. Katherine was a champion sleeper, bless her, [...]

Tell Us Your Backstory Belinda Williams

  Tell Us Your Backstory Belinda Williams For me, reading has always been about escapism. I love the ability to open the pages of a book and suddenly be transported to another time, another place, and meet new people and go on new adventures. It’s a type of real world magic open to anyone [...]

Tell Us Your Backstory with Shelley Russell Nolan

  Tell Us Your Backstory with Shelley Russell Nolan I can’t remember a time when I didn’t love books. I would skip school sporting events to hang out at the local library, riding home with a new book propped open on the handlebars of my bike. Not exactly the safest approach to reading, and [...]
