Welcome to the BORN OF NOTHING

Hi Jill! Welcome to!  I’d love to know — What were your most inspiring pictures to browse, as you wrote your book BORN OF NOTHING?


Thanks for having me! I’ve got a few of the main images below that I used as inspiration—enjoy!
This was my Cat inspiration. I think she is so gorgeous—if I could have used her on the cover, I would have!

This is Cat’s mom, Colleen. She was young when she had Cat so they look almost like sisters—it’s always been just the two of them in life, which makes their conflict even more heart-wrenching.

This is a sea-side cottage where a good portion of the book takes place. I looked at this picture often when envisioning the setting, and I could almost hear the distant sound of waves and feel the salty sea air.

This is a view of the canal in Strabane where an important scene takes place (think first kiss ).

This was my inspiration for Daeglan, although I’m not sure I gave him a beard in the book. Daeglan made a brief appearance in book 2 but gets a big role in Born of Nothing. He’s got the perfect sinister vibe, just gives me shivers looking at him.

This was one of the first images I used as a teaser. I love its simplicity—it’s the perfect representation of the book.

Thank you, Jill! It’s great to get a deeper insight into what you were thinking as you wrote BORN OF NOTHING. I love seeing images which inspire a great story!

It was over before it began.

A druid woman and a Fae man—we were two people from different worlds, only by chance did our paths happen to cross. He was beautiful and damaged and totally captivating. If only I could have continued to buy into the propaganda of fear and hate my people had taught me about the Fae, then maybe I would have believed him to be the savage he appeared to be.

Instead, I offered the cryptic man my help. The time I spent with him allowed me to see the man he was behind the chiseled, formal exterior. What developed between us was tender, intimate, and totally unexpected.

My druid family was not as enlightened as I was. My mom didn’t want me near the Fae; she certainly never would have understood that I had developed feelings for a Fae man. I tried to keep my private life a secret. I tried to keep the peace, but my mother’s threats and intolerance left me with no choice. I had to make the hardest decision of my life. I had to leave the only family I’d ever known. I just never imagined what I’d face when I didn’t make it out in time…

    Thanks for sharing, it’s fascinating to see how inspiration is borne from images and photos like that. I agree, the woman used as the inspiration for Cat is stunning! x
