CHRISTMAS WITH… Tamara Gill
What are your plans for Christmas 2015?
We’re having Christmas at home this year, and on boxing day we’ll travel down to the South East (SA) for a holiday.
Tell us about a usual Christmas in your home?
We put the turkey on early in the morning, while the kids play with their presents. Normally the day is taken up with eating and drinking until we’re all feeling awfully full. Just a lovely day where we enjoy ourselves, relax and watch our kids have a great time.
Any gift in particular that you’d love to see wrapped under the tree?
A new Kindle. Mine died earlier this year.
What is a typical Christmas lunch and/or dinner at your house?
We have a hot meal, even though it’s normally hot. So turkey, or chickens, with roast vegetables, and pudding. Tea is normally a cold serve and seafood.
Tell us, what is the one dish that gets served every single year? Is there a story behind this?
I always cook pavlova and a spinach cob loaf dip. I cook these just because they’re so bloody delicious. No other reason. LOL
Essentials for an Aussie Christmas…
Pavlova hands down. Doesn’t seem like Christmas without that dish.
Your best Silly Season survival tip?
Just relax. All will turn out well.
What will you be reading this Christmas?
Something historical I’m sure. I’ve been trying to catch up on my TBR pile.
What have been your big achievements in 2015?
I landed an agent!! And she’s marvellous and I love her. I’m very excited where my writing is heading, and I look forward to 2016 and what the year will bring.
What are your plans/goals for 2016?
I have three Regency romances due out with Entangled Publishing next year, and I’m about to go out on submission with my agent. I can’t wait for 2016. LOL
A Christmas in Cornwall
After two failed seasons in town, May Stanford sees her future no longer with her family, but in a nearby convent where she’ll not be anyone’s financial burden. But before she can embark on her new life, May must complete her dealings with the local smugglers, men who have kept a roof over her family’s head during frugal times. One last Christmas at home and her life would change forever. So when William Scott, the Earl of Grandison arrives and crumbles her perfectly planned future to rubble, May is less than pleased.
William, Lord Grandison works for the Crown, and is determined to catch the nuisance Englishmen who dare smuggle along the Cornwall coast. William has never veered from his pursuit of these men working against the law, that was until he meets May Stanford, the maddening daughter of his host for Christmas. May drives him to distraction and forces him to admit to feelings he has never felt before.
But when May and William discover the crippling truth of each other, their secrets will threaten to tear them apart.
