When former BBC journalist Jo Furniss relocated to Switzerland with her family, she found herself living in a tiny, isolated village, caring for her young children. She enrolled in a masters writing program and started pursuing fiction writing, inspired by the beauty around her and the stories that have always intrigued her. This included apocalyptic stories and stories of survival. But Furniss noticed that most of these stories focused on a man trying to survive on his own, which left her wondering what would happen when a woman was on her own trying to keep not only herself alive, but also her children. She saw a dark humor in this type of situation and felt an urge to start writing her bestselling, critically acclaimed debut novel All the Little Children about two mothers and their children’s struggle for survival.
That's great.I'm a new writer to the circuit.Have a book coming out around May 15th.It's a lovable dog story.To everyone in the circuit,never give up.
Thanks for your insight. It seems to me that I often have ideas that come from no where that would make a great story, but I am certain that following up and doing the research needed and just having the time to sit down and do it is a story that every author could tell and make it interesting at least for a new author..
fascinating real life case..... I am inspired and something will come out of this inspiration.
Thank you! I can relate. Children of the Light is also a survival adventure that was inspired by a futuristic dream I had that was also dark, but also with much hope!
