AUSSIE MONTH with Lawrence Gleadhill
Describe yourself in one word:
What is your background with regard to writing?
I’ve been writing for 3 years. I started writing as a hobby and merely to keep myself occupied. Then in the last 18 months I decided to take it more seriously. I was never really a creative writer before, but I just started by writing down my weird dreams I would have and it went from there.

I am currently working on Mark & Madelyn, a romance adventure set in the early 1900s. Its the sequel to my first romance book, Josh & Jen and will be coming out In 2015.
What inspired this series?
I enjoy writing this style of book and like most of my books, I had a dream and in the morning began writing it down.

Mark & Madelyn
“I ran outside and didn’t care that tears were ruining my make-up, nor that I likely caused a fuss, men are such jerks and Paul Rathbone was just the same. I hate him, I hate men.”
Madelyn Rosewell is the daughter of the city’s top lawyer, she has everything at her fingertips, except for a loving husband. But things change when she meets Mark
Mark’s a thief, con artist and has fallen in love with Madelyn. Winning her heart was surprisingly easy, the hard part will be to keep his cover. Constable Mark Blackwood will have to be on his best behaviour to remain on this side of the law.
But perhaps there are bigger things in play, than Mark’s love life.
