When it was just Ken and I alone, our three sons all living on their own, I'd get up well before the crack of dawn and start my writing day. I loved the peace and quiet settling over the house.

When Ken rose, we'd each spend some time on our laptops, him checking emails and me battening down the hatches of the writing I had done earlier. I would write for a few hours before my 'working day' started, and then again late in the evening if there wasn't much ticking over family-wise.

This is where I will be writing the last edits of The Grotto's Secret. When we bought our new home in Spain this breathtaking view inspired the location for my conspiracy thriller and gave me the idea to use a historical time lapse.

I have always been fascinated with history and not knowing much about Spanish history or the middle ages in Spain, compelled me to dive into doing lots of research about living in medieval Spain.
