As it turns out, all the frenetic grinding of my mental wheels was wasted time: the answer came all by itself, unbidden.
I was still standing in front of the mirror of my make up table, trying to look as discreetly as possible whether the bump showed under my dress. Absentmindedly, I was taking off my gloves, still staring at my waist in the mirror, when Jane’s voice came ploughing into my consciousness. She was sitting next to me at her make up table with a hairbrush in one hand and a box of foundation powder in the other, her hair drawn back in a stark ponytail, her eyes bigger than usual, staring at me. Or maybe they appeared that way because of what she said next.
Cecily Riley, a journey towards writing.
I started writing in my early teens, the imaginary worlds I summoned up being far more interesting and kind than life at school. I kept with it, going from novellas to poetry, from novels to plays and movie scripts until, like two comets meeting and sending off sparkles, the ideas of a) sexy novellas and b) a dancer named Naughty Luce came together in June 2017. Ever since then, I have been with those characters, listening to their adventures and trying to keep up with writing them down.
Book dedications have always intrigued me, but so far I’ve never seen a website dedication. Perhaps this is the first. As it says in The Last Garden, “So special, so loved, so missed.” This little dedication is For Ana.
