Letter from Loretta Hill

Tuesday, 03 February 2015 by

February 2nd Hi Fiona, I can’t believe it’s February already. The kids are back at school and I can breathe again. The January school holidays were very hectic, also due to the fact that my new book, “The Maxwell Sisters” just came out. I’m really excited about this story. This book is as much about family as it is about falling in love. The novel centres around three estranged sisters, Phoebe, Tash and Eve. The eldest Tash, is on the brink of divorce, the middle sister Eve, is single and heart broken and the youngest Phoebe, appears to be in the happiest part of her life. She’s engaged to be married to the man of her dreams. The story begins when she decides to get married at their childhood home, Tawny Brooks Winery, situated in the heart of the Margaret River Wine region – one of my favourite places on earth. Up until this point,

February 2013 Dear Fiona, Has it been one month already? I feel like it was just yesterday I was writing to tell you about my January release, “The Girl in the Hard Hat.” Well, this month I have an e-book coming out that’s a little bit different. It’s a romantic, comedy novella set in urban Sydney. The title is, “One Little White Lie.” I actually started writing this story about eight years ago and couldn’t seem to get it right. I put the manuscript aside and didn’t look at it again until my agent asked me if I had something I could submit for Random House’s new digital first romance line. On a whim, I got this manuscript out and with fresh eyes could finally see the reason the story wasn’t working. It was because the premise wasn’t really big enough to warrant a full blown novel. In fact, a novella size would suit it

This photo is an unlikely setting for a book but that is exactly where my guest Loretta Hill set her books and I can tell you it was a perfect choice. Loretta’s first hand experience turns her books into a charming, engaging read with likeable characters with the red dirt backdrop. She’s here today talking about her fabulous characters from her new book The Girl in the Hard Hat. Welcome Loretta.                         Dear Fiona, How are you? I’m great! Thanks for having me on your blog today to talk about my latest release, The Girl in the Hard Hat due to hit shelves this month. I’m so excited about this book. More excited than I was for the first one! I think it’s because of everything I went through to get it done. The manuscript was due on my publisher’s desk by August this

I’m am very excited to have Loretta Hill on my blog! It’s great to have a fellow WA author, even better to have one that writes the type of book I love.  I met Loretta back in 2009, I think it was, at a RWA conference we had in Perth. Out of all the people I met, I recall talking to her and about the story she was writing. It sounded fab, even back then. I couldn’t remember her name, but I remembered the story. (I lost my ability to remember after having my kids!) I’m so excited that Loretta now has this wonderful book out, The Girl in Steel-Capped Boots. The title had me at Steel-Capped. I’ve asked Loretta a few questions, so we can get to know her a little better. Thanks Loretta!! Okay, so lets start with the nitty gritty. Where were you born, raised and schooled.  I was born, raised and schooled inPerth.
