    • Gillian Shields Rosie Reeve

      Gillian Shields was born and brought up in Yorkshire, in the north of England As she grew up, she had two passions books and theater Gillian s love of books led her to read English at St Catharine s College, Cambridge After university she studied acting in London She then taught in a drama school, the Academy of Live and Recorded Arts, for several years, becoming Vice Principal She recently taught English and Drama at Beechwood Sacred Heart, a girls boarding school.Having children gave Gillian an excuse to carry on reading children s books, as well as a motivation to write them She has a son and a daughter, and is married to Brian, who works for the New York Times Media Group.Hobbies, Interests, and EnthusiasmsI am currently learning Italian or trying to and have a secret fantasy about going to live on the beautiful island of Sicily one day, and having a little stone house with a lemon tree in the garden, and a view of the blue, blue sea I am lucky, though, because I do live in a fantastic part of England, full of soft green fields and rolling hills and cottages that date back four hundred years I like to go for long walks and see the changes that the seasons bring, and I try to imagine how it all must have been years and years ago, and how the people lived I was brought up in the north of England which is much rugged and wild the backdrop to Immortal I also enjoy being in the city although I wouldn t want to live there all the time, it s fun to go window shopping or to big new exhibitions or shows, or just hang out in a coffee shop with a cappuccino and a notebook and watch the busy world go by Something I enjoy is painting I have taken quite a few art classes and find it very creative to work with paint and charcoal and images instead of words, though somehow I can t help adding bits of poetry and scraps of words into my paintings, too When I was at school, I was completely obsessed by the Pre Raphaelites, and I love the way their art is so intertwined with poetry and stories My best friend is an artist and she is incredibly inspiring to me.I hate cooking but love the idea of being a good cook and welcoming all my friends and family to delicious meals So I have lots of beautiful cookery books but I never get past the first couple of recipes Every so often I get madly enthusiastic all over again, but it doesn t last When I am writing, I can t listen to music I find it too distracting, but I love to listen to the radio when I am driving I listen to pop music in the morning and classical music in the afternoon That just seems right somehow My son is really into music, so I enjoy sharing his enthusiasms At the moment we are listening to Eminem, Akon, NDubz, Chipmunk, Kanye West, plus Greenday, Michael Jackson the list goes on My current absolute favorite is Paolo Nutini.Another interest I have is this amazing charity called The Smile Train which carries out operations for disadvantaged children born with harelip cleft palate Sometimes I feel I don t realize how lucky I am, and so it s good to try and do something to help a child on the other side of the world who isn t so lucky My family also tries to support Sightsavers International, who do simple cataract operations to restore the sight of hundreds of people in the developing world.On a self indulgent note, I love to get to the theater whenever I can, and to the ballet, which I adore In another fantasy life I would definitely be a ballerina I can t imagine getting through a day without reading or writing I know it sounds a complete cliche, but there it is I go to a writers workshop once a week to meet other writers and exchange ideas and read work in progress, and that is hugely important to me And every spare minute of the time at home I am reading, reading, reading What would we do without stories EducationSt Catharine s College, Cambridge University MA in Englis
