How it all began

 

A song, a flash from the past

 

She hears them and she doesn’t, locked in a private corner of her past. A painful memory she’s been unwilling to share. But for now she isn’t fearful or sad, she’s mystified, lost in the beauty, the magic atmosphere. She doesn’t understand what she sees. It has familiar connotations but it makes no sense.

 

Twenty odd years have passed, how could it be? He looks so young, so beautiful, but the exotic setting? What is this?

 

His voice wraps her up and transports her back. Memories emerge and float, and she remembers. She’s a fighter, always has been. The little girl she once was kicks her from the inside, the one who refused to give in.

 

She doesn’t know it yet, but the nightmare is shifting away. For the last few months she has merely survived, now it’s time to live again. She’s alive and fighting. A new energy jolts her, she doesn’t even realise she’s pirouetting around the conservatory.

Meet author Rebecca Emin

Today I have the great pleasure to feature Rebecca Emin on my blog. Rebecca is one of the most friendly authors on Facebook and Twitter, lovely and supportive.

 

REBECCA EMIN lives in Oxfordshire, with her husband and three small children. Her first novel for children, ‘New Beginnings,’ will be published by Grimoire Books in January 2012. She is currently working on her third novel. Rebecca also enjoys writing flash fiction and short stories and has had several stories published in charity anthologies and via the Ether Books app.

 

 

 

 

 

Where do you most like to write?

If I need inspiration, my favourite place is a café in the next village with floor-to-ceiling windows. I find looking outside gives me ideas. But if I need to get the words down for a deadline, our study is the best place, as it is very quiet so there are limited distractions. / Sounds lovely.

 

Have you ever switched genres, or considered doing so?

I switch genres all the time. I write novels and short stories for older children and teenagers, but when it comes to short stories and flash fiction I have written in almost every genre and I don’t think I will ever write just one. / Ah, a soul sister.

 

Do you ever get fed up with your own stories?

The only time I get a bit sick of reading through my own stories is when I am doing the final proof reads of my novels. By that time I have already been through them countless times and my brain autocorrects the words so I have to read really slowly in order to notice any errors. That can be quite tedious. / Same here.

 

Have you ever considered packing it in?

I think I have been very lucky so far, as every time I have doubts about my writing something seems to happen which is really positive. I could never give up writing completely though as the characters spring into my head and if I don’t write them out they could drive me mad, chattering on in my mind. Getting them out of my head and into written form is the only way to silence them. / Again same here, unfortunately, I do find it very hard to switch off and end up writing all night…sometimes.

 

What do you like best about writing?

When I get an email telling me someone has loved something I have written; that is the best thing ever. Especially when it’s children writing, as I know they say exactly what they think and I have been bowled over by some of their comments on New Beginnings. / So true, I love it when readers take the time to let you know they enjoyed your books.

 

Thank you very much for dropping by Rebecca, love your answers and look forward to be reading more of your stories.

 

New Beginnings by Rebecca Emin – Blurb

 

Sam Hendry is not looking forward to starting at her new school. Things go from bad to worse as the day of truth arrives and all of her fears come true… and then some.

When Sam meets a different group of people who immediately accept her as a friend, she begins to feel more positive.

With her new friends and interests, will Sam finally feel able to face the bully who taunts her, and to summon up the courage to perform on stage?

Nowhere Left to Hide by Elle Amberley

Described as “A heartfelt tale, told with a deft touch” by novelist Rowan Coleman.

Sometimes sad, sometimes funny, sometimes romantic, this much awaited novel is a story of hope, fighting against the odds & the determination to do the right thing.

‘Lyrical from start to finish, Elle Amberley embraces the essence of women and friendship in Nowhere Left to Hide. Natasha, a young poet and writer, is wise beyond her years, as she lets us accompany her on her year long journey from England to the sunny coast of Southern California as she finds courage, her true calling and love.’.

“Inspirational! I absolutely loved this book. The underlying story should make you pity the main character but she’s so strong and full of life that you can only admire her.”

Writing a novel is like having a dream

“For me, writing a novel is like having a dream. Writing a novel lets me intentionally dream while I’m still awake. I can continue yesterday’s dream today, something you can’t normally do in everyday life.”

Haruki Murakami
