Warwick's Mermaid by Ellie Gray - Book Blitz

Warwick’s Mermaid

Having escaped an abusive relationship, Chloe MacGregor is determined to put the past behind her. The little cottage high up on the cliffs overlooking the beautiful North Yorkshire town of Whitby is her safe haven, somewhere she is free to be herself.

When the arrival of her new neighbour and boss, Luke Warwick, threatens her peaceful, sheltered life, Chloe is forced to confront her past and to re-evaluate who she really is. Falling in love with Luke is not part of her plan but, to her surprise, Luke is falling for her too. The only thing preventing their happy ever after is Chloe herself. Will she ever truly learn to leave the past where it belongs?

Author Q&A
1.       If you could tell your younger writing self anything, what would it be?

Writing is hard – its not just writing down your story, sending it off and being offered a 3 book deal. You need to learn the craft of writing, that the first draft will be rubbish, but will be something you can work on, that you need to get the story down first. But, above all, I would tell myself that I will succeed, it will be worth it, and the feedback from your readers will be the best feeling of all.

2.       Favorite childhood memory involving books?

3.       If you could dine with any literary character, who would it be and why?

 4.       What fantastical fictional world would you want to live in (if any) given the chance?
I always wanted to live in a city under the sea, or on a space station. In terms of a fictional world, perhaps Middle Earth from Lord of the Rings, although perhaps at the end of the story rather while the wars were taking place…..

 5.       If you had to describe yourself in three words, what would they be?
Kind, quirky, calm.

6.       If you could own any animal as a pet, what would it be?

I know it’s a bit boring, but a cat. I’ve always had cats, ever since I was little. We also had a chinchilla until recently – a little pet with a big personality. He sadly died earlier this year, but it was at the grand old age of 16 which I believe is not a bad innings!

 7.       Have you ever met anyone famous?
I’ve met Ian Rankin and Bernard Cornwell – both at author readings, and had a brief conversation, and also Gordon Brown when he was Chancellor of the Exchequer. However, I can’t say I’ve ever met anyone famous long enough to have a meaningful conversation!

8.       What is the first book that made you cry?

Call of the Wild by Jack London – heartbreaking.

9.       What are your top 5 favorite movies?

White Christmas

Lord of the Rings (all 3, but I’ll lump them into 1 for this question)


Sleeping with the Enemy

 10.   What book do you wish you had written?
I recently read a book called Winter Song by S. Jae-Jones and I was blown away by the skill with which it had been written. It moved me more than I can say. It was loosely based on one of my favourite films, Labyrinth, but was written for adults. I was at a low ebb when I read this book, and struggling to find motivation for my own writing. This book inspired me to start again.
