Good morning everyone! I want to welcome you to the 2nd part of Day 27 of the 3rd Annual Romancing September Across the World Blog Tour. If you haven’t checked out Rosie’s post from earlier, then go by https://rosieamber.wordpress.com/ and get caught up.
Now on to today’s featured author, Here’s the question I asked:
What has been the biggest inspiration for your writing?
Undoubtedly it’s place. Yes, I have a fascination for folklore which marbles my stories but at the end of the day the setting is what inspires me most. For The Faerie Tree is was the tree itself which made me think about the characters whose lives could revolve around it. The Cheesemaker’s House is set in the home I owned but never lived in (apart from through Alice, the narrator) and my current manuscript has Studland at its very heart.
Here’s a little bit about today’s author:
If you have taken the time and trouble to post a review of one of my books, then thank you so much. Feedback from readers (good or bad) means a great deal.
My first novel, The Cheesemaker’s House, was published by Matador in September 2013 and tells the story of Alice, who moves to Yorkshire following the breakdown of her marriage and meets her new neighbours from the present and the past.
“I really loved the authorial voice – it really drew me in. But more than that I loved the fact that the initial mystery posed is one that I could not think of a possible solution for, so that really got me hooked.” Sophie Hannah
“Jane Cable’s first novel is intriguing from the first page, to the last.” Lizzie Greenhalgh, The Lady
My second book, The Faerie Tree, is a second chance novel also published by Matador. This time the mystery revolves around a couple who meet twenty years after a brief affair only to discover that their memories of it are completely different.
“Will keep you guessing right up until the end and maybe even beyond it.” Claire Dyer
“Well written, absorbing and original. Read and enjoy.” Margaret Graham
Following the success if these books I am now proud to be represented by Felicity Trew of the Caroline Sheldon Literary Agency.

Todays featured book is “The Faerie Tree”. If you haven’t checked out the her book, then here’s a little about it and where to find it.
The Faerie Tree
How can a memory so vivid be wrong?
In the summer of 1986 Izzie and Robin hold hands under the Faerie Tree on the banks of the River Hamble and wish for a future together. Hours later tragedy rips their dreams apart.
In the winter of 2006 Izzie spots a down-and-out on the streets of Winchester… a man who looks very familiar.
The Faerie Tree pieces together Robin’s and Izzie’s stories as they try to create a second chance. But why are their memories of their brief affair so very different? And which one of them is right?
I hope you enjoyed it! Keep watching for more great authors all month and don’t forget to go by Rosie’s post at https://rosieamber.wordpress.com/… Let’s make it another awesome tour for 2015!
