I'm an Author, I'm a Reader, I'm a Believer - Gillian xx
"In my career writing was always about the job; documentation, training material, meeting notes...all the while I was harboring a desire to be a Novelist, like one of my favorites - Nora Roberts."
Hi! I’m Gillian,
I live with my husband and son in the Bay of Plenty, New Zealand, way down in the South Pacific.
My house is on a fairly large section in an urban setting, so we are fortunate enough to have lots of space for gardens and trees. Our property backs on to a green reserve, with our closest neighbour being a large lifestyle property with trees, lots of grass and chickens. We have a number of fruit trees; including many citrus and a plum, but by far and away my greatest achievement is my Avocado tree, which this year proudly holds over twenty fruit, its first crop. We also have a girl, who is an apprentice beekeeper, place a beehive in our yard, and since then our garden and fruit trees have just buzzed with life and blooms. On a sunny day you can sit and watch the bee highway 🐝🐝🐝 back and forward between the hive and the greenbelt. They are truly magical ❤️ and we have been fortunate to get some of their honey 🍯 which was delicious.
My inspiration for writing usually comes from a single idea, once I give that my attention, characters and aspects of the story-line come to me, and away I go weaving the necessary words around them.

Have a wonderful day.
