Hello and thank you for visiting the remote corner of WordPress that is my blog! My name is Amanda Fairchild, I live in the West Midlands of England and enjoy reading, swimming, trying not to buy from TV shopping channels, and now – writing.

I started this blog to share my bits & bobs of writing with you, and also to pass on my thoughts as I begin the writing process itself… Nurturing imagination, outlining, motivation, character development, plot… Perhaps this will help others, or, if not, I can look back one day and see how far I’ve come  😉

My favourite genres: character-driven, thriller, fantasy, historical fiction, horror.

And some of my favourite authors (an ever-growing list):

  • Anita Brookner
  • Douglas Adams
  • Jane Austen
  • George R R Martin
  • Laurie Lee
  • Catherine O’Flynn
  • C J Sansom
  • Charlotte Bronte
  • Stephen King
  • Lee Child
  • Philippa Gregory
  • Alison Weir
  • Goscinny & Uderzo
  • J K Rowling

So…. sit back, have a look at my oddments (so to speak), and I’ll pour us a coffee.

“Share and enjoy” 🙂
