“This is what life is for all of us, a series of emotional responses to human experiences that are riddled with happiness, joy, grief, sorrow and fear.”
Adele O'Neill

“For me, the measure of a good story is how much it makes me feel and as most writers will agree, a character that evokes an empathetic response, is a character that a reader will invest in. As a writer of issue based fiction, it's heart-warming to hear that a reader was crying at a scene that made you cry when you wrote it and while scene setting and plot progression are important, it is finding the correct balance of emotion in a sub-text that can make all the difference to an authentic character and how they carry the story to a satisfying conclusion.”
Adele O'Neill
