This book relies on a lot of scientific knowledge, so I guess the most important part of the process was doing a lot of research as I wrote. I wanted to make sure I had the underlying facts right and up to date - which meant numerous revisions over the eight years that I wrote it. Research is always being updated, which is awesome, but frustrating too! The most important thing I remind myself when I'm writing SciFi is that it doesn't need to be technologically possible (yet), but it does need to be plausible. In other words, one day, scientists could figure out a way to make it happen. (As opposed to writing fantasy, which is a little different, because anything can be justified using 'magic' instead). So that plausibility forms the basis of where I took Ivy with regards to time-travel, communication with the hobbits (which will be revealed in the sequel 'Extinct') and the environmental issues as well.
The book changed a lot over the period I wrote it and Ivy's character evolved a lot too (no pun intended). The essence of what I wanted to achieve with Ivy's story has always been consistent, but I guess, it took me a long time to learn how to tell the story better. At this point, it makes writing Ivy's sequel so much easier - she has a rock solid foundation to continue growing from. The most enjoyable part of writing though, is always just the writing. Getting a character out of your head and on to the page, so other people can share it. Best job ever. (less)
Hayley Camille Thanks! Nice to meet you, I have followed you back! :-)

I think that more than half the fun of writing the Avon Calling! series, is putting into play all of the swell slang and turns of phrase from 1940’s New York. Jazz and Swing were topping the charts and every bar was rolling with doll-dizzy service boys, ducky shincrackers in zoot suits and lulu dames.

I thought I’d make a snappy little list for you of some of the terms you’ll recognise from the...
