Nelle Davy was born in Grenada in 1984 and was raised in London within an Anglo-Caribbean family.

MBA&M: Can you tell us something about yourself that not a lot of your readers know?

NELLE: I could probably be a make up artist or a baker. I am the kind of person in either shop where people actively come up to me and ask my advice on products. I once took this woman around Superdrug (a beauty shop in the UK) testing liquid eyeliners on her. The staff were not amused but she got the right one for her I can tell you.

MBA&M: Do you have any quirks that come out while you are writing?

NELLE: I argue with myselfmy husband actually laughs at me because I look like a mad woman having conversations with myself about what this character did or should do.or should not.

MBA&M: What is your daily routine as a writer?

NELLE: I don’t have oneit’s very fly by the seat of your pants but  I tell you I love to write at night. There is something about the darkness that makes me feel much freer.

MBA&M: What is your favorite book?

NELLE: Could not even begin to answer that one it would be like choosing a favourite child: Matilda, Rebecca, Madame Bovary, Anna Karenina, The Secret History, I Capture the Castle, Therese Raquin.endless endless lists.

MBA&M: What is your favorite part of the writing process?

NELLE: When you finish a segment and realize you wrote a sentence that is yours – your voice captured in those words and no one else could write what you just did. It makes you feel as if you are coming into your own, instead of a lesser follower of greater authors.

(from the author’s website)

An epic, sweeping tale of a dynasty rotten to the core, driven by ambition, lust – and hatred.

For generations, Aurelia was the crowning glory of more than three thousand acres of Iowa farmland and golden cornfields. The estate was a monument to matriarch Lavinia Hathaway’s dream to elevate the family name—no matter what relative or stranger she had to destroy in the process. It was a desperation that wrought the downfall of the Hathaways—and the once-prosperous farm.

Now the last inhabitant of the decaying old home has died—alone. None of the surviving members of the Hathaway family want anything to do with the farm, the land or the memories.

Especially Meredith Pincetti. Now living in New York City, for seventeen years Lavinia’s youngest grandchild has tried to forget everything about her family and her past. But with the receipt of a pleading letter, Meredith is again thrust into conflict with the legacy that destroyed her family’s -great name.

Back at Aurelia, Meredith must confront the rise and fall of the Hathaway family…and her own part in their mottled history.

EXCERPT FROM “THE LEGACY OF EDEN” BY NELLE DAVY (provided by the publicist)

“It’ll end in tears,” they said, and secretly hoped.
In little over a year, my grandmother decided that her initial vision was completed enough to her satisfaction and she threw a party. My grandfather, Cal Sr., was relieved—he saw it as a peace offering. She let him believe that.
How can it be so easy for her? I thought, as I sat in my studio, my conversation with Ava repeating in a continuous loop through my head. She who, unlike me, spent years forcing herself to remember when I was struggling to forget. The light was beginning to die outside, eager lamps from the streets sharpening against the encroaching dark. I sat in the corner of my room, surrounded by the half-formed clay models, whose shadows threw deformed specters on the walls behind them. I could tell as we spoke that unlike me she did not see an arched sign hung between two columns of oak with the farm’s name written on it in curlicue black lettering or the gravel paths that wound through sculptured green lawns on which were planted pockets of flowers.
