Bev Dulson has written stories since she was old enough to hold a pen, she lives in a constant dream world and genuinely thinks her characters are real.
She lives in the North West of England, where sometimes the sun actually shines. She is married to her ex-rugby playing husband and has two adorable, well behaved (sometimes) daughter’s.
As well as writing she loves reading, whodunnits, dancing around a disco ball in her friend’s kitchen, anything purple, chocolate and of course fizzy pink wine.

What inspires you to write?
I love Jackie Collins, Rebecca Chance for their raunchiness. Agatha Christie for the amazing mysteries she weaves. Paige Toon & Lindsey Kelk for fab chick lit and CL Batty for awesome story telling
Tell us about your writing process.
Firstly I need music, I have a writing playlist set up on my laptop. It features rock music like Bon Jovi, The Script ( I love music with strong lyrics, it can often help me out of a plot pickle). I’ve even got a bit of country on there too (Mainly cos I’m a little bit country and a little bit rock n roll!) At the moment the book I’m working on is partly set in the 90’s so I’m revisiting my youth with a lost of 90’s music.
I also use images for my characters, so I have a famous person for each of my characters so I know exactly what they look like. My muses have included Ryan Reynolds, Ian Somerhalder, Bradley Cooper and England Rugby player Ben Cohen (research is tough!)
If I’m working on a love scene I like to have a nice glass of rose to relax into it.
I always have a not book with me to jot down plot ideas, names, book titles. Anything really.
I write in order, so I follow the story as it unfolds, but once I’ve got the first draft I go back, add things, take things out, go into further detail. I write from the heart and as it falls out of my head.
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
I let the characters lead me. If I tried to control them, I’d get nowhere.
Many of them do things I’d never do, or things I don’t agree with, so I just have to let them get on with it!
What advice would you give other writers?
Just do it. Grab a pen and a blank piece of paper, let your imagination go, you never know where it will take you.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
Mainly just through curiosity and I’d had good feedback from authonomy and people seemed to like my writing.
There would be nothing worse that 3 books gathering dust on my laptop!
