Venice Simplon Orient Express Author in Residence

 Writer in Residence – Web content stolen from veronicahenry.co.uk

While I was writing this novel I was lucky enough to be made Writer in Residence for the Venice Simplon Orient Express, travelling in splendour from Victoria to Venice, then staying at the Hotel Cipriani on the island of Giudecca. How could I fail to be inspired? My characters came to life en route, and the story unfolded.

A few dates in Veronica Henry’s diary for  Summer 2013

The Orient Express. Luxury. Mystery. Romance

For one group of passengers settling in to their seats and taking their first sips of champagne, the journey from London to Venice is more than the trip of a lifetime.

A mysterious errand; a promise made to a dying friend; an unexpected proposal; a secret reaching back a generation…As the train sweeps on, revelations, confessions and assignations unfold against the most romantic and infamous setting in the world.

Example Memorial on In Memory Of:

Samuel had a milk cart, which was pulled by a faithful horse. He was an asthmatic and Mary was always concerned when he was over due home. On one occasion he was terribly late and panic set into the Underwood household. The horse and cart was eventually spotted coming down the road without its driver. Fearing the worst, Mary ran out to meet it. In the bottom of the cart was Samuel’s unconscious body. Dragging him out of the back she carried him into the house and placed him in their bed. Then she smelt his breath: he was blind drunk. He was soon forgiven. It was Christmas and his customers’ generosity caused his condition. Read more…

You suddenly wake up one morning and realize your business is a total success, all the hopes and dreams, the hard work and pain has paid off – BIG TIME.

You have the latest iPhone, the latest Aston Martin V8 Vantage Coupe, the Art on the wall and the biggest Cartier watch in the world; you suddenly have more Twitter followers and Facebook friends (who want to bask in the heat of your shadow) but all this proof of success is dismissed in your head and self perceived as just luck, timing, or a result of deceiving others into thinking you are more intelligent and competent than you actually are.

This fear of being found out is a natural process, you eventually get over it.

…Psychologists call this ‘Imposter Syndrome’ — or the nagging feeling that we haven’t really earned our success. It’s astonishingly common: raise the subject in any circle of friends, and confessions will tumble forth.

Veronica Henry (best selling author, TV script writer and features writer) explains: ‘Lots of people envy the ability to write, and so think you’re a genius, and you sit there and think: “No, I’m not!”. That leads you to think: “Am I a fraud? Am I lucky? Am I just hard-working?” You flip between feeling very confident and then not at all.’…
