Goodreads asked Elisabeth Gifford:

What’s the best thing about being a writer?

Elisabeth Gifford It must be discovering new worlds because writing allows you to travel in time and space. I've loved researching Scots and British history and their different regions - and especially discovering about the beautiful Selkie or seal people myths. Writing a book is an adventure because you never know quite where it will take you. In Return to Fourwinds I visited Madrid, a really beautiful city, and was able to find out for the first time something about the brave smuggling ring that a relative was part of to save many lives in WW2.
