Quite often it's a place and an atmosphere that starts me off, or an object, or a name on a war memorial. There's a great deal of digging about that is simply work, not inspiration at all.(less)

The books I love to read.

I like to read widely rather in one genre, but I'm always trying to catch up with classics that I've never read before, not simply recently published books.

That said, I love historical novels. Novels by Helen Dunmore, John Boyne, Tracy Chevalier, Margaret Attwood and Sebastian Barry are amongst recent favourites. I also enjoy Tracy Rees, Elizabeth Buchan and Elizabeth Fremantle, and many more. Read more of this blog post »

“I existed in a cocoon, wrapped in daydreams. It's dangerous to be too much alone with an imagination.”
Rachel Hore, A Gathering Storm

“I asked for your heart and you gave me a stone.”
Rachel Hore, The Glass Painter's Daughter

“You're my lodestar – that's the one that sailors followed, the Pole Star that took them safely home to harbour.” he said.
“And I suppose you're like a shooting star” she responded “Always travelling in unexpected directions”
And like a shooting star, he had disappeared over the edge of her world, taking all the light and leaving her in cold darkness.”
Rachel Hore, A Place of Secrets
