AUSSIE MONTH with Kendall Talbot
Describe yourself in one word:
Tell us about Breathless Encounters:
Breathless Encounters is an anthology of short stories that were all inspired by true life events. These are sweet, quick stories that are great to read during your lunch time, while you’re commuting, or before you go to bed.
What inspired this novel?
The initial inspiration for this short story collection started after my mother told me a story about growing up in war torn London. Together with her best friend, the boy who later became my father, they would explore the bombed buildings of London, despite the derelict homes being condemned. I wrote this first short story, Charlies Angel, for my mum. Each one of these stories are very different and I fell in love with the concept of writing a story in a short amount of words. It was a challenge that I learned heaps from and I found it very rewarding. I hope you love them too.
What are you reading right now?
I’m reading The Secret Keeper by Kate Morton
Number one thing to do on your bucket list?

Best thing about being an Aussie?
What you want readers to know about the romance genre?
Romance encompasses a vast array of genres. It can take you back in time or forward in time. It can be in the here and now, or it can be in another world. Romance novels are not what they used to be and I can guarantee, no matter what you like to read, you’ll find a genre in romance that will suit your reading passion.
What have you got in store for your readers in 2016?
I have my third and final instalment for my Treasured series – Treasured Dreams being released in April. I’m working on a new action adventure romance – Tequila Bay which was inspired by my resent visit to a Mayan Temple in Mexico.
What were your big achievements of 2015?
By far my greatest achievement this year was releasing my first print book. Double Take was 22 years in the making and it was an incredible thrill to see it on the bookshelves.
