Emma Davies once applied for her dream job in the following manner;

'I am a bestselling novelist currently masquerading as a thirty something mother of three.' Well she's now a forty something mother of three, and is working on the rest.

By day she's a finance manager and looks at numbers a lot of the time, but by night she gets to use actual words and practices putting them together into sentences. Her twitter bio says she loves her family, her job, reading, writing, singing loudly in the car, and Pringles, so that must be true then.

Wave to her on twitter @Emdavies68

Letting in Light is her debut novel, and she is currently working on her second.

I think the best answer I can give is dogged determination! When they were quite young, sometimes the only time I had was an hour and a half on Sunday mornings when they had their swimming lessons, but I made sure I wrote something every week. Now that they are all in their teens it is easier, and fortunately in my day job I have to be very organised which rubs off a bit at home too. I have to plan to write, and sometimes (not always) the plan comes together! (less)

I have times when things flow better (usually when I'm five minutes from the time I have to stop!) but for the most part I'm usually just so happy to have found the time to write that it spills out. I work full time, have three children and my Mother in Law lives with us , so ours is not a quiet household, desperation is often good motivation!(less)

Back to Basics

Sometimes it feels as if the idea for Letting in Light came just before the dawn of time. Ok, I exaggerate, but in the beginning there was just me, a notebook, and a pencil. I do remember we had a PC, but you almost had to wind it up to get it going, and it was definitely before the Great Age of Broadband. Not only that, but at the time I started writing it, the children were very small and so... Read more of this blog post »

Fascinating, great read!

Really good insight into this insane spectacle! Couldn't put it down! Made me want to go and find more information on the history of the TT, and the Isle of Man.

“Our choices in life aren’t always easy, but if they come from the heart they’re usually the right ones”
Emma Davies, Merry Mistletoe

“No worries of the past, no anxieties of the future, just the slow movements of the present, demanding nothing from me save my passage through them.”
Emma Davies, Letting in Light

“It hangs with the sort of vibrating stillness that you often get in the middle of a summer’s day, strangely both enervating and calming at the same time.”
Emma Davies, Letting in Light
