So …moreBeing a writer calls upon a set of skills (if you can call being good at making things up a skill...) that aren't compatible with many other jobs. So to me, one of the very best things about being a writer is being able to make a living from doing the only thing at which I actually feel competent!

I also love being able to work from home, around the demands of my family, being able to eat the leftover lasagne for lunch in my pyjamas, and the massive amount of support and friendship that exists in the writing community. (And I do really, really love making things up.)(less)

The Glittering Hour by Iona Grey
Dawn, I'm so sorry - I've only just discovered this question. Huge apologies for not answering sooner. I wrote the book as a romance: at it's heart it's the story of a wild love affair one hot summer in the 1920s, and the consequences of it. However, See Full Answer

Everything I love in a novel: an old house, a mystery, an unfolding romance and a whole heap of exquisite, evocative writing. I was transported to high summer in a lush, green valley and I absolutely adored it.

“Please know, my dearest darling, how much I miss you — every moment — and how I'm longing to be back with you soon. Have courage, brave girl. In a world that is small enough for the same moon to hang over us both, we can't ever be too far apart.”
Iona Grey, The Glittering Hour

“Footfalls echo in the memory Down the passage we did not take, Towards the door we never opened Into the rose garden–T.S. ELIOT”
Iona Grey, The Glittering Hour

“Think about today, not tomorrow. Dance over the cracks so you don't fall into them. Drink champagne in the afternoons and invent ridiculous cocktails to make the ruined world glitter again. Keep going, one foot in front of the other. Don't look down.”
Iona Grey, The Glittering Hour
