Hello from Dilys J. Carnie!


Many thanks for having me, I hope you enjoy learning just a little bit about me and my day.

When you’re not writing what do you do?

When I’m not writing which when I’m on a deadline is very rare I like to go to the gym, I love doing Pilates I find it gives me an inner peace and de-stresses me.

Do you plan or work off the cuff?

Usually I have an idea of what I’m going to write and I do a lot of research to begin with and I might jot a few things down but generally I like my characters to take me on their journey.

What advice would you give to other would be writers?

Never give up, if you really want it use each rejection as a learning curve and always send your work in polished to the very core. Get a friend to look it over or a writing group it’s amazing what they see that you don’t.

Are you working on anything at the moment?

Yes I’m working on a new trilogy about triplets who get separated at birth but ultimately find the men of their dreams and each other.

Which is the hardest for you, writing or promoting?

Promoting…argg it’s a nightmare.
