Writer's Blog


Research is an important part of the writer's work. In writing Monet's Angels I did hours and hours of research in order to make the story believable. the book begins in 1913 and I needed to be sure details were historically correct from the clothes my heroine, Judith, wore, to the car Robert drove and, of course, there was much research into impressionism and gardens, Claude Monet's twin loves. Google is a wonderful tool for this but you have to be careful. It is all too easy to become engrossed in a particular subject and find yourself an hour later still reading round it. Also, like an iceberg, only a small portion of your research will show. It is best to be selective and use on a few pertinent details at a time to 'flavour' the story rather thsn deliver huge, indigestible chunks. 

Writing tips for today

When planning your book leave a question mark about the ending. It has to be earned by all that will go before it.

Always carry a note-book.  The short-term memory only retains information for three minutes; unless it is committed to paper you can lose an idea for ever.
