Isobelle is an author of paranormal romance novels, and a woman who wears different masks: mother-writer, wife-professional, scholar-novelist. Currently living in Manchester, she has been drawn to the little known, the secret stories, about the people and the nations: the English, the Irish, the Scots, the Welsh, and those who are now part of these nations whatever their origins. Her vision and passion are fuelled by her interest and background in history and, paradoxically, shaped by growing up in a clan steeped in lore, loyalty and legend. Isobelle is intrigued by forces that simmer beneath the surface of these cultures, the hidden passions, unsaid desires, and yearnings unfulfilled.
I’ll be talking to Isobelle about her novels, writing and interest in history. And, of course, she’ll be sharing her selections for this week’s Apocalypse Books.
