About Elizabeth Davies:
Elizabeth Davies was born and raised in South Wales more years ago than she cares to remember. She lived in England for nearly two decades but returned to her roots when she felt the mountains of her youth calling to her, and hiking in her beloved Brecon Beacons is now one of the joys in her life. When she is not working as a full time secretary, Elizabeth loves spending time with her family, hates doing necessary chores, and tries to fit in writing whenever she can. She has published several books: the Resurrection trilogy, beginning with “State of Grace”, continuing with “Amazing Grace”, and ending with “Sanctifying Grace”, “The Spirit Guide and most recently – The Medium Path. She is currently working on another paranormal romance set in Wales.
She is also seriously addicted to chocolate.
What inspires you to write?
I honestly don’t know. There is such alot of hard work,and soul-searching and frustration involved in writing a novel, as well as the satisfaction of putting your story down on paper (so to speak), that sometimes I wonder why I write. But then then stories build up and demand to be let out, and I have no choice but to give them their freedom.
Tell us about your writing process.
Oh, I’m definitely a panster! I get an idea, have a beginning and a vague idea what happens at the end, but everything in between is a mystery to me until I write it.
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
I talk to my MC’ s in the middle of the night, getting to know them intimately. I have been known to hold whole conversations in my head with them…
What advice would you give other writers?
Keep writing. Don’t lose sight of your main purpose – writing books – and get too caught up in social media and ‘author presence’.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
No one else would have me! Seriously, it’s hard to break into the traditional publishing scene in the UK, so I decided to self publish after the umpteenth rejection. Mind you, perhaps all the agents I submitted to might have been trying to tell me something…
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
Ebooks and reading electronically is the way the world is going. Even schools are increasingly using iPads and other tablets on a regular basis during lessons. However you feel about the rightness or wrongness of this, the facts cannot be altered.
