Hello to all of you believers in beauty and true love and mystical talismans, angels and ancient artefacts. Welcome to my author’s page. I’m so excited to share the KEEPERS OF GENESIS series with you, following Sage and Saffron’s parallel journeys to find the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, the Garden of Eden and, of course, to attain true love along the way (but not without the trials and tribulations that all such journeys bring!).

I always have time for my readers because without you this series would not have been possible… so if you feel the urge to tweet @db_nielsen me or send a message via https://www.facebook.com/db.nielsen.a..., I’d love to hear from you…

I have to admit that the readers make writing and publishing worthwhile. When readers tell me about their reading experiences - and that they believe in the world and the characters I've created - it is a humbling experience and I truly feel blessed for the generosity of my readers.(less)

It's a mixed bag, to be honest. The main protagonist, Sage, and her sister, Saffron, are modelled loosely on the students I've taught over the years (I lecture/ tutor young adults at university) - so, for instance, Saffron's struggle with anorexia is quite real as is her more overt sensuality whereas Sage is the bookish teenager. And, as my own mother was an artist, it was easy to use that as a character device for Sage's mother. The places the characters come from are also those I know well from extended family members residing there (even the references to Eton College). But other characters like Louis Gravois are pure fiction.
Yet the desire was to make them believable as I wanted complexity and the shades of grey in a character (not just good or evil).
But, in answer to your question, no character resembles a real person I know fully but are usually a collection of traits of various people I know or know of.(less)

Well, it's been a while since I've blogged and I don't want you all to think that I haven't been working hard (which is far from the truth) but there's a phenomenon that happens to authors - inconveniently, right in the middle of writing a series - and that's when we change publishers. Sometimes that means that a series often is discontinued because new publishers not only prefer something orig... Read more of this blog post »
