Isobelle Carmody - on finishing the Obernewtyn journey

I've been wondering how Isobelle Carmody must have felt finishing the last Obernewtyn Chronicles book, 'The Red Queen' - a 30 year epic writing journey! In an interview with the Guardian to mark the release of the book, Carmody reveals she wrote 'The Red Queen' while staying at a friend's place, and when she finished, she packed her things and took a bus and train journey home:

'I arrived home in the night and it felt very symbolic, that journey. It was a lovely feeling of blissful separation, of floating away into the future.'
