Luccia Gray writes action packed, neo-Victorian, romantic thrillers, which she shamelessly admits are influenced by the masterful Victorian writers and their delightfully mischievous characters and plots.
The Eyre Hall Trilogy, soon to become a series of six novels, is the sequel to Jane Eyre. The first novel in The Eyre Hall Series, Blood Moon at Eyre Hall, will be available for pre-order in August 2021.
Visit her blog, Rereading Jane Eyre, at https://lucciagray.com/, where you can find out more about Jane Eyre, Victorian Literature, The Eyre Hall Series, and sign up for her newsletter.

Writer's block, at least in my case, is related to a temporary insecurity or creative overload!
First, I try to calm down! I often take a short break from writing, for a day or two. I usually read or spend time with friends or family. I try not to think too much about my 'block'.
Then I go back and write. If I feel I cannot move the story on, I go for a walk and imagine a dialogue between the characters, or I ‘speak’ to them myself about what could happen. Sometimes I go back and write the dialogue or the scene, even though I know it will not appear in the novel, but it helps me get back into the novel.
Surprisingly, I often dream with the characters and events, and I write it all down when I wake up, before I forget! There is a strong subconscious component in writing which helps me move my stories on. I love Michelangelo’s quote, ‘I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free’. I often feel that is just what I am doing. Words are an author’s marble, and I have to combine them in the perfect way to disclose, or set free, my angel, or story. The story is there already. My role is to write until I release it.
Finally, it also helps me to talk to someone about how I feel and try to work it out. In my case, it has to be someone who knows me well and understands my characters and story. It is usually my daughter, who is a great reader and plotter!

Good afternoon Claire,
Thank you for asking and sorry for my belated reply.
That's a really hard question to answer! I once said in an interview that I'd love to spend an afternoon watching Charlotte Bronte, and listening to her, and other Victorian authors, just chatting about life and literature...
I've read her novels, biographies and letters, so I have the feeling I know her enough to imagine that Jane Eyre was her fantasy. Charlotte would have liked to be as daring as Jane, but I'm afraid Charlotte was a bird ensnared in a cage, who gained her freedom through writing about a strong, assertive, and determined young woman, who dared to think and behave independently.
I'm more interested in Jane than Charlotte, so I'd ask Charlotte about Jane Eyre's future:
How do you see Jane Eyre Rochester twenty-two years after her marriage? (less)

The Bodyguard by Katherine Center
"Well. You know. I *wrote* this book. So. I probably shouldn't be reviewing it??? But also—how can I resist? I have read it, after all. Many times. And, for me, it's just pure sunshine. So . . . five totally unbiased stars! 😂"

“hold it true, whate'er befall; I feel it, when I sorrow most; 'Tis better to have loved and lost, Than never to have loved at all.”
Luccia Gray, Twelfth Night at Eyre Hall

“The pain of parting is nothing to the joy of meeting again.” Nicholas Nickleby, Chapter 1”
Luccia Gray, Twelfth Night at Eyre Hall

“He did not move, staring at her angrily, yet strangely close to tears.”
Luccia Gray, All Hallows at Eyre Hall

Topics Mentioning This Author

“Is it really for love he is going to marry you?” She asked.
I was so hurt by her coldness and scepticism that the tears rose to my eyes.
“I am sorry to grieve you,” pursued the widow; “but you are so young, and so little acquainted with men, I wished to put you on your guard. It is an old saying that ‘all is not gold that glitters;’ and in this case I do fear there will be something found to be different to what either you or I expect.”
Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre

“I am no bird; and no net ensnares me: I am a free human being with an independent will.”
Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre

“Do you think I am an automaton? — a machine without feelings? and can bear to have my morsel of bread snatched from my lips, and my drop of living water dashed from my cup? Do you think, because I am poor, obscure, plain, and little, I am soulless and heartless? You think wrong! — I have as much soul as you — and full as much heart! And if God had gifted me with some beauty and much wealth, I should have made it as hard for you to leave me, as it is now for me to leave you. I am not talking to you now through the medium of custom, conventionalities, nor even of mortal flesh: it is my spirit that addresses your spirit; just as if both had passed through the grave, and we stood at God's feet, equal — as we are!”
Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre

“I do not think, sir, you have any right to command me, merely because you are older than I, or because you have seen more of the world than I have; your claim to superiority depends on the use you have made of your time and experience.”
Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre

“Gentle reader, may you never feel what I then felt! May your eyes never shed such stormy, scalding, heart-wrung tears as poured from mine. May you never appeal to Heaven in prayers so hopeless and so agised as in that hour left my lips: for never may you, like me, dread to be the instrument of evil to what you wholly love.”
Charlotte Brontë , Jane Eyre
