  TELL US YOUR BACKSTORY with Amber A Bardan It never in my wildest imaginings occurred to me that being a published author was a possibility. Sometimes people ask, “I bet you’ve been dreaming of this your whole life?” and some are shocked when I reveal I only attempted writing when my [...]

May 9, 2016 // 15 Comments

  Tell Us Your Backstory with Anna Campbell I’ve always loved books, and my early taste for romance was set when I fell in love with fairy stories like Cinderella and Snow White and Sleeping Beauty. My preference for happy endings started there! When you love books so much, it’s a natural [...]

  TELL US YOUR BACKSTORY with Sandy Vaile Hi, I’m Sandy Vaile, and I’ve never been a Barbie kind of girl. I always preferred GI Joe and Matchbox cars. So is it any wonder I’ve grown-up to be a motorbike-riding daredevil suspense writer? (Maybe grown-up is putting too strong a slant on [...]

TELL US YOUR BACKSTORY with Louise Foster

  TELL US YOUR BACKSTORY with Louise Foster I often felt right out there dangling on the end of a twig when the conversation turned and friends started to discuss books. Having read very little of anything, I was afraid to open my mouth. It took years to discover why my sight a family joke? [...]

  TELL US YOUR BACKSTORY with Narrelle M Harris I’ve been writing stories, or telling them, for as long as I can remember. One of my brothers and I used to act out stories. I got reading as soon as I could, and read books in advance of my years. I was horse-mad for a while as a kid, and I [...]

  TELL US YOUR BACK STORY with Diane Demetre I’m sure I was born with high heels, sequins, feathers and an insatiable desire to perform. Terpsichore must have taken up residence in my soul as she’s kept me on my toes ever since. When I was two and wiggled my nappy off dancing in front of [...]

  Tell Us Your Backstory with Jennie Jones If anyone had told me I’d end up writing books full time, I would probably have rolled my eyes and thought them mad. I’d spent my entire life from the age of three to eighteen dreaming of becoming an actor. I’m happy to say – this happened! [...]

    At any given time editors, publishers, writers, and readers struggle with a novels backstory—too much, too little, too deep, too shallow… there are some major equations in play when deciding how much backstory to offer, what’s important, when, and why. But that’s [...]
