S.R. Wilsher 

I’ve written all my adult life, so for thirty years now, and started simply because I had ideas that I needed to pursue and setting them down on a page became a logical step. Writing a novel is like a crossword puzzle that I have to finish and, when I do, I have to start the next. I have two books available now, with another out at the end of the year, and another next year. I don’t want to be contained by genre and I want every story I write to be different from the last; different in tone, different in style and hopefully always unpredictable.

Donna Marie Lanheady 

People often ask if my novels are autobiographical. My answer is an emphatic NO! I am way too private to write anything that’s true. That being said, I do abide by the rule to write what you know. I often tap into my own emotions to help me relate to what the character is feeling. For instance, I know how it feels to fall in love, to be terrified to tell my mother something, to be told my husband has passed away. Although my characters don’t feel the exact same way, at its core the emotion is similar enough to help me imagine their feelings and in that way, bring them to life.
