Lilian Gardner

Author Lilian Gardnerabout this book: My novel, 'When the Storm Breaks' is a romantic story with a hint of spirituality and based on a gypsy's prophecy for the protagonist, Amber Barrett.

• Who are the primary readers of your book?
I feel this book is suitable for readers from their early teens and over.

• How long did it take to write it?
It took me a year to write this book and another year to revise, cut, and polish. Finally, it was ready for publishing. Believe me, it was hard work; much harder than I imagined.

• How did you come up with the title?
The original title of the narrative was very different to the actual one. I changed it because my brother's advice was that it might put some people off. This was a challenge because I had to restructure the story around another thought.

• Did you do research for your book? What did that involve?
I read articles on writing, how to build believable characters, and move the story forward by dialogue. I gained much knowledge from my well-thumbed book of 'Writing for Children and Teenagers' by Lee Wyndham, which is easy to follow and divided into separate chapters on plotting and developing a story.

• Why did you choose this cover?
Fortunately, my grandson has a degree in advertising and graphic design, and when I explained of how I imagined the cover, he made three designs, and we both agreed on the present one.

• Did you learn anything from writing your book and what was it?
From writing, rewriting, and revising repeatedly, I learnt that writing for publication is an absorbing pastime, but not easy, and that the final draft must be your best.

• What do you want to say to your readers?
I want to say a heartfelt thanks to all my readers who purchased a copy. I hope you will enjoy the novel, and read the sequel to 'When the Storm Breaks', which I'm writing at present.
