"When I'm not writing" with Abigail Gibbs

I'm super happy to welcome author Abigal Gibbs, to celebrate the upcoming release of Autumn Rose, second book in the series! Please welcome her warmly :)

"When I'm not writing" logo

When I’m not writing I tend to be working towards my degree in English Literature. Or, that’s what I tell my agent and editors, whilst happily reassuring my tutors and lecturers that the whole ‘fiction book thing’ is most definitely on the side, and that my heart is truly stolen by Chaucer. Halfway into my second year, my double agent lifestyle is yet to be uncovered. Don’t blow my cover!

What none of these bookish people realise is that I am actually a resident coffee connoisseur in a family-owned coffee shop in my university town. No, really. Eight hours a day is a short stint, and they get worried if I don’t go for more than two or three days. Admittedly, when I’m in there I am probably writing my next book or typing up an essay, but the coffee fumes and their perfect lattes (definitely the best coffee in town) make it more of a caffeine high. It makes for surprising productivity.

I’m also a bit of an ‘alternative’ girl. I have a huge passion for corsetry which definitely shines through in my writing, but I own a rather too large collection of corsets myself, and will wear steampunk-inspired fashion at any chance I can get. That initial interest in the neo-Victorian and gothic has led me too experience all sorts of unusual and decadent events: everything from a 1920s inspired, Great Gatsby style (legal) rave complete with burlesque and Japanese rope bondage suspension as entertainment; a latex and lace fashion show in an alternative fashion market; and even body painting and needle artwork performances. Who knew corsets would lead me so far into the weird and wacky? But the wonderful and often odd alternative world I dabble in does make for a great bridge between the stressful, sometimes monotonous world of academia and the world in which I base my stories!

But mainly, I’m just drinking coffee.


Thanks so much for visiting us, Abigail!
