This is a guest blog by ‘Spirit Writer’ Morwenna Holman…
My communication with Emily Bronte first began when I visited the parsonage museum when I was about ten. Before then I had been seeing a young girl in period dress in my bedroom, often sitting at the bottom of my bed, but she never said a word to me. She did not frighten me at all as I had been seeing Spirits since the age of about eight and understood that somehow I had been born with the ability to retune my mind to both see and hear Spirits.
I asked Jan Domagala, author of ‘Ronin‘, to write a guest blog for us, about what inspires him to write… here it is!
Inspiration, as defined by the Collins English Dictionary is “stimulation or arousal of the mind, feelings, etc, to special or unusual activity or creativity,” so I had to think if there was one definitive act that inspired me, not only to write but to write the Col Sec series.
The Unspeakable by Peter Anderson was recently released and is already gathering some wonderful review…
Early praise for The Unspeakable:
“The Unspeakable refuses to let the unspeakable remain inarticulate – it is a harrowing and arresting fictional exploration, situated within a particular time in the South African past, but which addresses the disturbing depths of all who read it in any context.”
– Dr Michael Kissack, expert on South African literature.
