Guest Fox: Nadine Millard

My guest this week is author Nadine Millard. I’m certain that I own all of her books and as soon as I see a pre-order link for a new one I order it. No need to read the blurb because I know it will be a beautifully written book. She’s not only an amazing author but she’s a wonderful person. I was so thrilled when she agreed to be my guest here on Four Foxes One Hound.


Hi everyone! It’s so great to be here with you all. I’m Nadine, a historical romance writer from Dublin, Ireland.

I now live in Laois, Ireland with my husband and three children.

I’ve been writing since 2014 when my first book, An Unlikely Duchess came out and my newest release A Springtime Scandal is available to preorder today for only 99c!

I think I always wanted to be a writer on some level. My mum often talks about how much I read as a child – and how often I got in trouble for having my boss in a book when I should have been doing something else!

I studied and worked in law though and only realised my dream to write when my youngest son went to preschool.

Readers always ask me where I get my ideas from. And the truth is, I have no idea! Usually I’ll be walking or reading or doing something else mundane and a scene will pop into my head. Just one scene. And I can picture it like a movie playing out. And everything stems from that! The story, the characters, even an entire series sometimes. I have no idea if that’s common among writers but it works for me! 😁

I love to keep in touch with readers and friends so do please check out or follow me on my social medias:

And as a thank you for listening to me rambling on – I’d like to gift some e-copies of ANY of my books so please comment below if you’d like one!

Thank you again for having me! Slán go fóil! Nadine 💕

    Welcome, Nadine, to 4F1H.
    I think my sources of inspiration are similar to yours: just minding my own business, in some regular routine, and suddenly an image, a concept, or even (as you say) a full-fledged scene can appear in my noggin.
    I hope you have continued success.

  2. Thank you Nadine for being my guest this week. ❤
    Like you, a lot of my ideas tend to come from just being out and about. I can be walking and then a scene or character will pop into my head then I know I need to write it down. On some walks I can play out a good portion of the story in before I'm even done. It can be like a movie just playing in my mind. There have been times where I didn't even realize how far I had walked because of it.


  3. Welcome, Nadine! You sound like a lot of fun, and very few stories are directly inspired. In my case, it is hard to keep stories from intruding upon one another while I try to get them down. I suppose that people who don’t feel the need to write can’t understand, but you have met kindred spirits here!
    ádh mór ort!

    Welcome, Nadine! It was nice collaborating with you on the Nine Ladies Dancing anthology this past year. I wish my ideas would flow so easily onto the page: for me, the ideas come in fits and starts. You’re so prolific! If your offer is still good, I’d love to read The Wicked One.
