Barbara Hannay – Guest blog

Monday, 30 July 2012 by

Now I’m excited to have Penguin author Barbara Hannay with her new rural book Zoe’s Muster as my guest blogger today. But Barbara is no first time author. She is an award-winning, bestselling author of forty novels published in twenty-six languages worldwide. I’m very excited to have an internationally bestselling author here today, so let’s find out a bit more about Barbara.     Barbara, could you please share with us how you begun your writing journey. Thanks Fiona… I’ve actually been writing for as long as I can remember. Even before I learned to write, I used to make “movies” for my sisters by drawing scenes on pieces of paper that I passed through the slats of orange boxes – a frustrating process, but I persevered. I think perseverance is one of my strengths. Many years later, I was busy teaching and raising four children, when I discovered Mills and Boon, and I knew I had to

Jennifer Scoullar – Guest Blog

Today I have an amazing lady, Jennifer Scoullar who I met last year in Melbourne at the RWA Conference. She is one person who I remember very clearly. Her beautiful personal story has stayed with me, such a giving person and I hope she will write about that one day also. But for now she has a new book called Brumby’s Run, (out now!!) another one for our growing rural lit, chook lit, rural romance genre…(I’ve tried to include them all). Jennifer is talking today about something she is passionate about…Brumbies.   Hi Fiona, and many thanks for inviting me over to your blog. I have a new novel out, called Brumby’s Run. It is dedicated  to Australia’s marvellous Brumby welfare organisations. Groups like the Victorian Brumby Association, Save the Brumbies (and a dozen more!) operate on a shoestring to train and rehome these wonderful horses. They also work very hard to better the management of

My two minutes

Well the weekend just gone has been a busy one, but very exciting.  Prior to the weekend I spent a whole day with photographer Colin trying to get a good photo for the Weekend Australian to go with their article.  Because his boss was very vocal about how the shot should look, hence why it took so long, we had a good idea that it wouldn’t be on page 9.  So to finally get to Saturday and find this huge photo of me (and my dog Sally) along with all the covers of my book on page 3 was beyond amazing. I don’t think I realised just how cool and a big deal it was, until I saw it. By the time he took this photo, I was totally out of smiles and doing a grimace while I squinted in the arvo sun. And my lovely Sally dog had a big sore on her face by her ear, which I’d

Cathryn Hein – Guest Blog

My guest today writes about horses. Now I grew up with horses next door and was always in awe of them and have been on the back of a few over the years but I wouldn’t say I’m a rider. (I tend to stick with cars as they don’t have a mind of their own!!) I had one horse try to grind me off her back by running close to the fence. I lifted my leg in time…but you see…I know nothing lol. But I love reading Cathryn’s books as I can understand the connection you could have with such a beautiful animal. Cathryn is also a fellow rural Penguin author who I’ve had the wonderful pleasure of meeting. (Gotta love the Romance Writers of Australia Conference. I have met so many amazing authors from it.) I look forward to getting my hands on a copy of her new book, and without further ado, I’ll
