AUSSIE MONTH with Sandie James
AUSSIE MONTH with Sandie James
Describe yourself in one word:
What inspired The CEO Mechanic?
I had a dream of a pair of vivid blue eyes and had to get up, and write the story as the words came to me. I ended up with a too hot to handle hero, a heroine who cares deeply but has been burnt too many time to trust in love. And Davey, a small boy with Down Syndrome who is the glue that holds them together. The CEO Mechanic is the 3rd book in the Bindarra Creek Series.
What are you reading right now?
The Horse Thief by Téa Cooper
Number one thing to do on your bucket list?
I’d love to go to England, Wales, and Scotland.
Best thing about being an Aussie?
My family, beaches, great places to discover.
What you want readers to know about the romance genre?
These days there are so many novels to choose from all in sub-genre of sub-genre. So there is something for everyone read. I think in some cases now the readers aren’t always looking for the ‘Happy Ever After.’ They are quite happy to settle for the ‘Happy For Now.’. I think the romance genre is still as popular as ever because it gives the women what they want their ‘HEA’ or ‘HFN’.
What have you got in store for your readers in 2016?
2016 is shaping up to being a big year for me. I’m aiming to indie release at least two to three novels in the small series I’m working on called ‘Logans Run’. Logans Run is a small fictional town situated in the north west of the Hunter Valley region, NSW Australia. The towns logo is ‘Where Broken Hearts Heal’. I’m also looking at submitting a Regency romance early in 2016.
What were your big achievements of 2015?
Getting my novel published with a little push from some very special friends.
The CEO Mechanic

After being summoned home to Bindarra Creek, Brooke Fairfax finds herself instantly attracted to the town’s new mechanic. Her feelings deepen when Mac shows a kindness to Brooke’s younger brother who has Down syndrome.
When she discovers Mac has lied and didn’t confided in her with the truth, her trust in him is shattered.

Hi Sandie, great to see you on AusRom. I loved writing my Bindarra Creek book, which is the third in the series. Each book is so different but that feeling of getting to know the people of such a great community is one of the best aspects. I’m quite certain that BC actually exists!
All the best,
Susanne (Second Chance Love)
I have to agree with you about BC actually existing. I love this series and it’s great to see how the characters grow in each book. I’m looking forward to having the whole series on in my bookcase. Thanks for stopping by Susanne.
