One Question for Author Ellie Gray

This week, Maya's Musings features Ellie Gray and her book Beauty and the Recluse.

Question: What is your favourite time to write, and why?

Answer: I tend to write on a weekend, during the day. I work full time in the public sector and it is a demanding job, particularly emotionally, and I find that I don’t tend to have the energy or drive to write on an evening. However, I do manage to switch off from the day job on a weekend and really enjoy writing – I lose myself completely in the story and the characters and it really helps to relax me. There is no better feeling then having had a really good day writing, when all your characters behave, and the words flow.

Beauty and the Recluse

Following the recent death of her father, and in need of both a job and somewhere to live, Kiya takes a housekeeping job on the spur of the moment.  She soon finds herself living in a beautiful but neglected mansion, working for a strange and reclusive man. 

St. John is a man scarred by the past, both physically and emotionally, and is determined to live out his life alone.  They are two very different people, drawn to each other almost against their will, but can Kiya convince St. John that he is not the monster he believes himself to be?
