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.

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 por Read more of this blog post »

Quotes by Emma Davies  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“At its worst, working for yourself can be the loneliest, most soul-destroying, self-doubting existence on the planet, but when it’s good… there is a soaring freedom and armour-plated feeling of invincibility that I wouldn’t swap for anything.”
Emma Davies, My Husband's Lie

“There isn’t much change in his expression, but I sense a subtle shift, the shutters coming down again. Perhaps it’s just that I know it’s something I do myself, a wariness about giving too much away for fear of an awkward conversation.”
Emma Davies, Letting In Light

“There is so little native woodland left in relative terms, and despite our best efforts to destroy it, it clings to life. I like that. Nature is so tenacious, and I feel like some things deserve to be the best they can – they just need to be, to exist.”
Emma Davies, Letting In Light

“When I am dead, I hope it may be said: "His sins were scarlet, but his books were read.”
Hilaire Belloc

“And memories, he knew, were not glass treasures to be kept locked within a box. They were bright ribbons to be hung in the wind.”
