In The Spotlight

JANUARY WA MEMBER SPOTLIGHT - Nicola Cleasby (Nina Croft)

 

Around twenty years ago, I found myself working as a volunteer on the banks of Lake Kariba in Zambia, far from any book shops or libraries (and this was way before ebooks.) I quickly ran out of things to read and, as I’ve always been a voracious reader, I suffered. Finally, I decided, if I didn’t have anything to read then I might as well write my own books. And so began my first foray into writing romance. The resulting book was bad, but it instilled in me a love of writing that’s remained with me since. Writing gives you the chance to experience new things, go anywhere, do anything—the only limit is your imagination.

Now, years later, I’m once again living in an isolated area—this time, the mountains of southern Spain, and I think it’s fair to say that writing has taken over my life.

I still write mainly romance, but in all sorts of sub-genres: contemporary, sci-fi, paranormal, thrillers…
