How would you like to spend a weekend by the sea, reading and writing (and the occasional drinking!) with a group of your fellow authors?
Enjoy the post this week at Love Bytes Reviews where author Ana Newfolk reports on her latest fabulous weekend writing retreat in Hastings on the English south coast. I’ve been on a couple of these retreats, and they were both productive and FUN! Ana explains the positives of it so well <3.
“…I am looking forward to the next one but I hope that sharing my experience has maybe inspired you to find your own way to retreat and do something you love with your own tribe of like-minded people.”
Ana Newfolk was born in Portugal where she grew up surrounded by sunshine and countryside. She has always had a deep love of reading, and ever since she can remember her favorite presents and treats have always been books. She would often be found in her not-so-secret spot reading her favorite adventure books (when she was younger) and romance novels (when she discovered boys). At 20 years old she moved to the UK where she has lived since.
In 2015 Ana stumbled across her first MM romance novel by chance, and she was hooked. She loves reading about men falling in love, hard, fast and ever so sweetly. This new found love for LGBTQ+ romance has opened a new world for Ana, and in 2017 she decided to finally listen to the voices in her head and write them down.
In addition to the time she spends reading and writing Ana has a full-time job that involves meeting lots of people with interesting stories to tell. She also loves baking as much as she loves watching people eat what she creates, much to the delight of family, friends and work colleagues alike.
