"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 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 I'm fortunate enough to have lots of space for gardens and trees. The property backs on to a green reserve, with our closest neighbour being a large lifestyle property with trees, lots of grass and chickens. An apprentice beekeeper has placed a beehive in our yard, and since then the 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 I've 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. To find out more, you can read my blog on www.gillianmayne.com 😄 You can also sign up to my newsletter on my website, to hear when my latest book releases are planned.
Have a wonderful day.
