I wanted to write a paranormal romance that wasn't vampires or shapeshifters (I just written some vamps), and I was also interested in cursed heroes and the Beauty and the Beast tale (one of my favourite fairy tales). Roman Britain is also a fascinating period of history so I had all these things rolling around and I just needed a creature. Goblins were a feeding the baby at 2am idea. At the time I had a set of tarot cards that dipped into the darker side of fairy lore (another interest of mine that I explore in the Court of Annwyn series) so I don't think my subconscious had far to dig :). So the Shadowlands came from all tiny bits of ideas, but once goblins had popped up I knew that was what I'd been looking for to make the stories work. 3 different men, who experienced the curse (and the Roman takeover) very differently.(less)
Shona Husk I keep writing. Sometimes I re-plot or step back and look at the overall story to see where I'm going. Or I switch projects, but I never just stop.

Character interview with Dale from Lady of Silver

Lady of Silver (Blood and Silver, #1) by Shona HuskYou’ve recently discovered the existence of magic…did you ever think it might be real? Your mother was a believer.

I never thought it might be real. Tarot cards and crystals seemed like a waste of money. I think they still are. Real magic doesn’t work that way.

You don’t think people are trying to tap into an ancient knowledge of magic?
