Writer and reviewer of romance & fantasy.

Introverted, creative and above all else, a dreamer.

Author Lorraine Ambers fantasy-writer

My home and heart belong in Wales. I live in a pretty coastal town within Cardigan Bay.Β  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 overactive 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.

Like all readers, I’m happiest wrapped in the quiet realms of a novel. Transformed and often devastated by 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 my 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. 😊

  2. Lovely to meet you, Lorraine! Thank you for the follow, happy to follow back and see what you’re up to. I have a few creative friends who have moved to Wales, so I can see the attraction. Here is the Scottish Borders is where my heart lies, but it’s a similar kind of landscape. Interesting what you say about memoir not being as personally rewarding as you anticipated, I’m wondering about that aspect too. Cheers for now!

    1. Lovely to meet you too. I must visit Scotland, to witness the beauty for myself. I found memoir too close for comfort, where as writing through fantasy is easier to pour my heart and soul into. Let me know how you get on with your experience of writing memoir. πŸ˜€

    Beautiful words Lorraine. My writing was kindled in writing groups in Derbyshire, but we have moved away now and I miss them so much. There are none here where I live now, but I have the wide open wild spaces of North Lincolnshire even though I can no longer see them. I find I never have the words to describe what I long to describe. I love Wales. Spent wonderful holidays there. 😊

  5. Great post about a valid (or sore) point for most authors. I agree with going with your own gut instinct, a manuscript has to be your unique voice. I’m not sure if editors work the same world-over but in Australia, in my experience, they merely advise changes, putting tracking comments in a Word.doc for example, and guiding/assisting the writing process. I know it doesn’t do to stick to my guns too hard because an editor is the one who has a finger on the book industry pulse.

    1. Absolutely, an editor has so much knowledge about what works and what doesn’t.
      I think for self-published authors they’re essential. And of course, as the artist we can agree or disagree with the changes suggested. Thanks for commenting. 😊
