Meet Olga Gibbs! She lives in a leafy-green town, nestled amongst the green fields of West Sussex, England. She lives with her husband Richard, their two daughters and the ginger cat Fluffy. She was writing from the age of fifteen, mainly short stories and novellas, and was a guest columnist for a local newspaper. When she is not dreaming up new adventures for her imaginary friends, she does outreach work with teenagers.
Here are some fun things about Olga:
Do you have another job other than being a writer?
I have stories in me and they want to come out. But as well as this, I personally find the market lacking books with a strong female protagonist, especially in a romance genre. It seems to be inevitable to pick up a book, only to find out that she's a "grey mouse" and his love (ie him) transforming her life. How about if she can transform her own life and to chose her own love and her own path?
What inspired you to write?
Did you ever think you would be unable to finish your first novel/novella/short story?
No. I'm stubborn like a bull and hate being in a "I wounder what would've happened if" situation.
Please checkout Olga's Book Havenward
A young adult fantasy adventure with a strong protagonist at its center and will guarantee to thrill fans of Hunger Games, Divergent and Philip Pullman.
What is your next/latest project?
Psychological crime thriller. Again with a female lead, but POV for the second half of the book will change.
