We are happy to welcome Lucy Clarke to Novel Kicks. As part of her blog tour for her second novel, A Single Breath, she tells us about the places that inspired the novel.
I first visited Tasmania in 2011, and fell in love with its wild beauty and its remote shacks. I knew I wanted to set my next novel there, so once I had the loose plot line in place, I returned the following winter on a research trip. I spent an incredible month doing a recce of the island, working out where specific events in the novel would take place, as well interviewing many locals, including two fascinating marine biologists. While I was there, I also learnt to scuba dive, which gave me a beautiful insight into the underwater world, and helped me write the freediving scenes within the novel.
Here are a selection of photos from my research trip, which inspired the story of A Single Breath.
