About Emily Windsor:
I grew up in the north of England on a diet of historical romance and classical mythology.
Unfortunately, you couldn’t study Georgian slang or the Regency London Season, so I did the next best thing and gained a degree in Classics and History instead. This ‘led’ to an eight-year stint in engineering.
Having left city life, I now live in a dilapidated farmhouse in the country where my days are spent writing, fixing the leaky roof, battling the endless vegetation and finding pictures of well-tied cravats.
What inspires you to write?
I write in the Regency genre and it is a visually appealing era – the dresses, the balls, the cravats, the silks and satins. Even the more disreputable side of London life has its own unsavoury appeal.
Pinterest is great. You can gain real inspiration – whether it's a picture of an empire dress, a hessian boot or an opium den! Art galleries and museums can also be very motivational. I love hunting out obscure Regency portraits.
Tell us about your writing process.
I daydream. That's where it all starts – frequently when I should be sleeping! A rough chapter guide is then scribbled out, followed by copious notes on anything and everything.
A conversation between characters often pops into my head at the most inconvenient times so I always carry a notepad nowadays.
Then I just sit down and write…
