Spotlight on Phillipa Nefri Clark

 Our Spotlight on Author is on Phillipa Nefri Clark. 

Phillipa lives just outside a beautiful town in country Victoria, Australia. She also lives in the many worlds of her imagination and stockpiles stories beside her laptop.

She adores mysteries of any kind and always manages to include a puzzle in every book. From the fifty-year-old mystery of lost love in The Stationmaster's Cottage, to the puzzling case of The Christmas Tree Thief, and the bizarre disappearance of a wealthy man in Last Known Contact, Phillipa loves keeping her characters—and her readers—guessing. She writes about happy endings, heart-pounding suspense, and characters who stay with you long after the final page.

With a passion for music, the ocean, nature, reading, and writing, she is often found in the vegetable garden pondering a new story.

Do you think someone could be a writer if they don’t feel emotions strongly?
Yes! There are many types of writing, but even when it comes to fiction, I believe a creative mind and willingness to work at the craft of writing are the most important elements in a writing career. Emotions can help but also hinder, depending upon the type of novel and indeed, the kind of writer. 

As a writer, what would you tell other writers starting out?
Find your voice and keep it. Each of us has a unique way of putting words on paper, thoughts into our characters heads, and creating a story. Be willing to learn what makes your voice unique so you can tap into it. A great editor will help you keep your voice while ensuring the elements of grammar and so forth are correct. My other advice is to learn the business basics of writing. Whether you aim for traditional or self-publishing, having some knowledge of the industry will stop a new author making costly mistakes. And always believe in yourself.

Tell us about your book...

Almost four years ago, The Stationmaster's Cottage was released as a standalone story of timeless love and family betrayal. Before long, I was talked into writing more about River's End and the mystery which occupied the old cottage. There are now four novels and two short stories in the series and all of them are being released as audiobooks this year. First is The Stationmaster's Cottage, paired with Taming the Wind, a gorgeous story of how Thomas and Martha met fifty years ago. I loved writing this series, which moves between now and other times such as the 1960s and even all the way to the 1850s. Set along the Great Ocean Road in Australia, the tiny town of River's End has many secrets and a whole lot of love. If misty cliffs, wild seas, and a dog called Randall appeal, you'll love the books.
