…one of the scenes I lost, which I pine for, is where Joseph is in a small canoe, floating down a river lined with boats full of orchids that are for sale.
I’ve just been interviewed by Erin Davies, aka the Historical Fiction Reader, about my latest historical novel, The Priest and the Lily.
Erin had some interesting questions. The one above is the answer to: Which scene ended up on the cutting room floor?
There were many, but I particularly loved the opening scene, described above, although, it was, ahem, probably too flowery.
She also asked me about my inspiration, my characters and what fantasy cast I’d pick!
The rest of the interview is here
Let me know what you think!
The Priest and the Lily is going to be released as an audiobook soon! I’m really pleased to announce that Mike Jaimes will be narrating it. Mike has a beautiful story-telling voice that draws you in.
Authors are notoriously hard to please, as we’ve been living with our characters in our heads for many years, but I really feel as if Mike has captured Joseph, the novel’s main character, perfectly. It’s as if I’m inside Joseph’s mind, when I listen to Mike’s narration.
Here’s a sample of the work-in-progress.
Can’t wait for you to hear the whole story!
