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. Tell us about your life outside of writing. I don’t write every
