Although Luccia Gray was hidden in Lucy Garcia’s mind for half a century (at least!), Luccia, the novelist, was born last year when she decided to break through the glass bubble which was preventing her from writing her novels.
Luccia is fascinated by everything to do with Victorian England (including everything Neo-Victorian). Jane Eyre is her favourite novel. She couldn’t live without it, so she has to reread it every single day. She adores Gothic novelists, especially Wilkie Collins and Mary Shelley; Detective novelists, especially Arthur Conan Doyle; Romantic novelists, especially The Brontë sisters; and social novelists, especially Charles Dickens and George Elliot. She likes to think of herself as their literary descendant or reincarnation.
She’s also thrilled by the eBook industry and Indie Publishing which allows writers to express themselves and reach their readers without having to be arbitrarily filtered by agents or Publishing Houses. She loves people who love reading and writing and who talk about reading and writing, so of course, she loves Facebook, and WordPress Blogs, and Goodreads and Amazon and Smashwords and Kindle devices and Apps, and eBook Readers and laptops and Internet…
She hopes you enjoy this Literary Blog, Rereading Jane Eyre, where you will find short articles on Victorian Literature and Neo-Victorian Literature in general and especially Jane Eyre. You will also be able to find out more about her debut novel, All Hallows At Eyre Hall, the first novel in the Eyre Hall Trilogy, and preview parts of the second volume, Twelfth Night at Eyre Hall, which will be published next year.

Some months after setting up this blog, I started taking part in Blog Hops, Blog Challenges, and interacting with many other bloggers, all of which has widened my scope and interests in blogging. My blog contents have branched out, and I now blog on many different topics, as well as my books and Victorian Literature. Have a look at the menus on the header. Hope you enjoy your visit!
Post-Postscript. July 2015
A year on a few more things have changed. All Hallows at Eyre Hall is now also available in paperback and Twelfth Night at Eyre Hall is available for pre-order and will be published on 28th of August.
Now that I’ve been here for almost two years, I can tell you a little more about Luccia.
Luccia Gray was born in London where she graduated in modern foreign languages. She now lives in the south of Spain with her husband. She has three children and three grandchildren. When she’s not reading or writing, she teaches English at an Adult Education Centre and at the Spanish Distance University (UNED). Over two years ago, she stopped scribbling surreptitiously and decided her life-long dream of stringing words into stories, and stories into novels, should come true, and it has.
