Blog Tour 2014

So here is my blod tour entry. Thanks to Robin Triggs for nominating me. Please click here to see his entry. Robin Triggs.


1) What am I working on?

Right now, just work on a Masters in History at Reading University. My fiction has had to be shelved until my papers are all done for this year. Once they are in though I will be editing my novel 'Homeward' and finally getting round to sending 'Hidden Doorways' out to agents.


2) How does my work differ from others of its genre?

My work tends to mix genre's a little. All my novels are historical but Playing With Fire is Vampiric and 'Hidden Doorways' has time travel. 'Homeward' is the most traditional in that there isn't any supernatural element, though I believe it still gives more than an historical romance but combines a sene of adventure and family drama.


3) Why do I write what I do?

I write what I imagine, there is no deliberate choice.


4) How does your writing process work?

With 'Doorways' I really had to plan very carefully. Writing time travel takes a lot of keeping track. Usually though I get an idea, I start to write, then as I get a few chapters in and begin to understand and develop my characters I then set out a bullet point of what I expect to do with the plot, though this isn't strict and I do go off in other directions occassionally. Sometimes the tangents work, sometimes I go back and unpick.


And here is what's coming next week:

Audrina Paisley

Audrina is a self-published author from a little market town in Oxfordshire. Her debut novel Spiral;The Finding, the first in the Spiral saga, is out now on Amazon Kindle. It explores the lives and hardships of five orphaned sisters living in medieval Scotland as they fight to carve out lives for themselves in the face of tragedy, upheaval… and family secrets that won’t stay buried. Audrina is also a Holistic Therapist and actress, and she spends her spare time cooking, fantasising about travel more often these days than actually doing it, and getting muddy in the garden with her son.
