Tell us about your life outside of writing. - As busy as I have been with writing lately, there isn't much of a life outside my computer and my chair. But I make it a point to practice Tai-Chi several times a week and I hike the mountains of the Valley of the Sun around Phoenix Arizona on weekends. It keeps me centered. Otherwise, I have a steady relationship with my cat (who inspired many of my feline characters), and I maintain friendships in…

Victoria Chatham talks about "His Unexpected Muse"

Welcome to today's featured author Victoria Chatham!
Victoria Chatham’s very first attempts at writing, in crayon on a wall, were not appreciated but she progressed to filling scrappy exercise books with proper words written in pencil. She now tries to embrace modern technology and uses a laptop. She grew up in England and immigrated to Canada more than twenty-five years ago. Now happily retired from formal employment, writing historical romantic fiction, particularly Regency romance, is her full-time occupation. When not writing, Victoria enjoys reading (of course!), movies, and sharing a glass of good wine with friends.

His Unexpected Muse, Book 3 in her Berkeley Square Regency romance series.

Overwhelmed by circumstances, Lady Olivia Darnley flees a society ball. She finds refuge in a darkened library but discovers that she is not alone. At her request, her unknown companion does not reveal himself but remains seated with the confines of a wing cha…

Joanie MacNeil talks about Mandraki Magic and Loving Nick...Again

Welcome author Joanie MacNeil!
Who is Joanie MacNeil? I am an Australian romance author living in Canberra, Australia's National Capital.  I write short contemporary romance novels, ranging from sweet to sexy stories of secrets and forever love. While most of my novels are set in Australia, I could not resist setting two of them in Scotland. I love to travel with my own romantic hero and have visited parts of the world I never dreamed I’d see.
Home, family and friends are important to me. I have blended these elements into some of my stories.
When I'm not travelling, or working on my latest novel, I enjoy reading romance as well as Icelandic Noir. Though I like watching movies, I never find the time to go to the cinema. I enjoy meeting friends for coffee, and am a regular participant in aqua aerobics. My special moments are those spent with my four young grandsons who keep me on my toes.
