Apple Gidley’s Writing Routine :
Whilst there doesn’t seem to be any substantive proof that Einstein said, “If a cluttered desk is a sign of a cluttered mind, of what, then, is an empty desk a sign?” I like it nonetheless. I am learning there is no hard and fast rule to my writing routine – some days it goes well, others not quite so smoothly. And that’s okay. Forcing the words out creates wooden dialogue, for me anyway.

Fireburn by Apple Gidley
The Danish-owned island of 1870s Saint Croix vibrates with passion and tension as Anna Clausen, a young Anglo-Danish woman, returns to her childhood home after her mother’s death. Her heart sinks at what she finds on arrival. Her father is ailing and desolate and her beloved plantation, Anna’s Fancy, that has been in the Clausen family for three generations, is in shambles.
The unwelcome lust of one man and forbidden love for another makes Anna’s return to Saint Croix even more turbulent. Despite the decline in the sugar industry she is determined to retain Anna’s Fancy but must first win the trust of her field workers, of Sampson, the foreman and the grudging respect of Emiline, the cook and local weed woman.
Fireburn tells the horrors of a little-known, bloody period of Caribbean history. Weathering personal heartache Anna survives the worker rebellion of 1878, 30 years after Emancipation, as she challenges the conventions of the day and faces hostility from the predominantly male landowners.
