The series will be based around the inhabitants and their daily lives, with an element of small town drama and a fair bit of Aussie humour thrown into the mix. (less)

Today I warmly welcome Rachel Nightingale, author of the Tales of Tarya series, to Behind the Pen with a few of her favourites. Over to you Rachel!


What is your favourite…and why…

Character from one of your books?

My favourite character has to be Luka. One of the reasons I wrote this series of books is that I fell in love with Pierrot when I was very young. He is the sad clown of the Commedia dell...

“There are some things in life that just are. They are meant to be, and to fight against them is to ensure your own loss.”
Theresa Smith, Somebody I Used to Know

“I felt like an integral part of my being had just been ripped out of me, only to have it replaced with something that did not belong.”
Theresa Smith, Somebody I Used to Know

“I loved him. In a completely platonic, best friend, would not even go there if you were the last guy on earth, sort of way.”
Theresa Smith, Somebody I Used to Know

“You have to walk carefully in the beginning of love; the running across fields into your lover's arms can only come later when you're sure they won't laugh if you trip.”
Jonathan Carroll, Outside the Dog Museum

“It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are.”
E.E. Cummings

“Everyone has talent. What's rare is the courage to follow it to the dark places where it leads.”
Erica Jong

“I don't think I've ever felt anything other than lonely. "
The saddest part of this was not the words, but the tone he said them with. So matter of fact; as though loneliness was the same as the colour of your hair or having too many freckles. A fact about yourself that could not be permanently altered.”
Theresa Smith

“With great love comes occasions of pain. You can't skip the pain; without it, you would never know what a precious thing love is. You wouldn't know to hang onto it. You wouldn't know to fight for it.
You embrace the pain because the love makes it all worthwhile.”
Theresa Smith
