The block usually works itself out, most often just as I'm about to fall asleep at night, so I always have a notebook next to my bed to jot down my thoughts in case I can't remember the next day.(less)

And having a good excuse to read as many books as you like in the name of "research". No one criticises a writer for ignoring chores and picking up a book instead in the middle of the day!(less)

Such an accomplished read. I wasn’t sure where it was going to take me, but it kept me gripped all the way to the end. Some colourful and intriguing characters with a very atmospheric locational setting. Another gem from Heidi Perks!

What a thrilling book! Did not see the ending coming and found it gripping, dark, spellbinding and compelling.

“One thing my recent experiences had taught me was to never assume that the mask we show in public is the same face we wear behind our own front door.”
Dawn Goodwin, The Accident

“The best thing about being a writer is the ability to live vicariously through your own imagination, with no boundaries as to how you behave on paper. And having a good excuse to read as many books as you like in the name of "research".”
Dawn Goodwin

“You should just make stuff up like everyone else. It’s all make-believe, all those status updates about how amazing their kids and husbands are, when in actual fact most of them are miserable, their kids are underachieving brats and their partners are having affairs. It’s all about one-upmanship, another way for us all to feel inadequate”
Dawn Goodwin, The Accident
