AUSSIE MONTH with Ann B Harrison
Describe yourself in one word:
What is your background with regard to writing?
I’ve always been an avid reader and I was happy with that until the voices in my head started! I really had no choice but to put those words down.
Tell us about Grady.
Grady is Book One in my new Outback Heritage series. He is a dedicated cop in a small country town doing his job when the new vet arrives to take over the business but beware – his mother has her matchmaking cap on. Grady and Lara are both in her sights!
What inspired this novel?
I love life in small towns. It’s how I grew up and there are always so many characters to discover. Whoever said small towns were boring and nothing ever happens there has never lived in one.
What are you reading right now?
Karen Rose – Closer Than You Think.
Number one thing to do on your bucket list?
I want to take a Scenic boat tour in France – the one that takes in Monet’s garden.
Best thing about being an Aussie?
Freedom to do what I choose.
What you want readers to know about the romance genre?
It’s such a broad genre, historical, suspense, erotic and contemporary. You can always find a book that suits your taste. It wouldn’t be the biggest selling genre if it didn’t cater to such a huge audience and I love that I’m a part of that.
What have you got in store for your readers in 2015?
I have book two in the Outback Heritage series half written. A novella is due out end of January with Emerald Publishing and a romantic suspense is due out soon as well. It’s going to be a busy year for me because the voices in my head are on a crazy ride at the moment.
What were your big achievements of 2014?
I actually took a bit of a break in 2014 because I was so busy with our new house. I love getting in and doing things myself so I figured out how to lay floating floor, built my own kitchen and painted the whole house. I was in ‘do it yourself’ heaven. I did finish another rural which is on submission at the moment along with two other books I have ready for release early 2015.
