Writer and reviewer of romance & fantasy.

Introverted, creative and above all else, a dreamer.

 

YA fantasy romance Author Lorraine Ambers

My home and heart belong in Wales. I live in a pretty coastal town within Cardigan Bay.  I’ve many beaches at my fingertips. It’s a peaceful place to raise my two children and run the family business. A wonderful way to blow the days stresses away is by walking amongst the enchanting forests or alongside the seductive rivers. Exploring with my beagle Dexter, I feel like;

‘Alice in wonderland’ or Titania from ‘Midsummer Nights Dream.’ What?! I have an over active imagination… I did warn you, I’m a dreamer.

The woodland brings alive my childhood love of fairy tales and magic. Over the years I have devoured the fantasy and paranormal romance genre.

Author writer reviewer Lorraine Ambers woodland faery realm

Like all readers, my happy place is wrapped in the quiet realms of a novel. Transformed and often devastated at the end. My gift, some would say flaw, is the ability to keep the characters alive. Creating my own worlds and living within my reverie.

After years of being a stay at home mum I decided to rediscover myself. I found my niche, a creative writing group that I adore, rekindling my love of literature. I originally wanted to develop memoirs, but the process was not as cathartic as I’d imagined. Fantasy in contrast, comes easily. I enjoy exploring my written realms, escaping the intimacy of my personal experiences whilst using them to grow my characters. Ultimately bringing them to life.

The encouragement and support from my family and friends has enabled me to embellish illusions, perhaps even delusions, upon pages. Of course, my husband has been the biggest support. Without his unwavering confidence in my abilities I would never have begun. And so, my love affair with fiction started… I’ve never looked back.

You’re all welcome to join me.

  1. Hi Lorraine. I’ve just followed you over here from Twitter. I have to agree with the above comment about your attractive site. Your header image is wonderful – gorgeous sky. Is it one from Cardigan Bay? Many people on WordPress are writers, or aspiring writers, and it’s a good place to be to help you to develop your style or simply meet others like yourself. There are lots of great flash fiction challenges out there, if you don’t already do some of them. I wish you every success with your future writing, anyway

    1. Thank you. I do write flash fiction, at my writing group, I like the challenge. The photo was taken a couple of streets away, it’s a single track road, that over looks the town. The sun set was perfect. I’m pleased you found me. 😊
