Each of her novels bring something symbolically Australian to her readers, from Aboriginal herbal remedies, to certain gemstones naturally only found in this part of the world.
Each of her books tell of a passionate connection between the hero and heroine, surrounded and threatened by deceit, scandal, theft and sometimes even murder.
These romances swerve from the traditional romances as Faye aims to give her readers so much more intrigue, whilst also revealing the hidden histories of rural townships of North Queensland.
Faye finds her inspiration from the histories of not only the township she grew up in, but the many surrounding it. She also bases most of her characters on people she has met in her life.
Faye was able to live her own passion driven romance, marrying the love of her life after a whirlwind romance in 2013. Together they are raising their 9 children in a remote country town in northern Queensland, Australia.
What inspires you to write?
My husband. The writing industry can be very hard to break into and get your name known, and whenever I start to loose hope my husband is always there to give me the positive push I need in the right direction.
He designs and takes care of my website for me, as well as throws story ideas around with me and gives me the courage to use ideas I’ve never thought to before.
Tell us about your writing process.
I usually write a small section of dialogue, a section that is usually confronting and emotional. I’ve written these sections waiting to pick my children up from school on my phone, or watching a movie with my husband. It’s never planned or thought about. It just happens.
The rest of the story literally just flows from there. I usually try to type some kind of notes about how I see the story progressing but more often than not the end result is nothing like it.
I just write what I feel at the time and see where the characters in my books take me.
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
Listen to or talk to? Um I tend to yell at mine sometimes because of the stupid things they do lol. I’ve also been known to ask them what they think they’re going to be doing next because I’ve no idea.
As I always tell my children…normality has no place in our home 🙂
What advice would you give other writers?
I’ve been asked this so many times and still my answer remains the same…Just never give up. There is a publisher out there for us all, your paths just have to cross at the right moment at the right time is all.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
I really don’t know to be honest. I can remember the first script I send to a publisher I literally shut my eyes and pressed send.
I think every author wants to see their name in print. I do too. But I also want to tell my stories to the world, and hopefully they’ll love them as much as I do.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
My thoughts on the future of book publishing…I think people have got themselves so busy that the need for ebooks and same such things are greater than ever. People need to be able to read on the go now more than ever. But I really hope society doesn’t get so busy that it looses touch with the feel of a paperback or hard covered book in their hands.
Books have been around for centuries…Their stories will be around for many more centuries to come too. At least that is my hope.
