|Author Joanne Dannon
Here at mariawriter, I love introducing new authors and their books. Today, I welcome author Joanne Dannon. She’s an Australian romance novelist who loves to carry her readers off to another world, away from the everyday pressures, to indulge in an emotionally rich read with a sigh-worthy happy ending. Well, I wouldn’t say no to that! When she isn’t telling stories, she’s a happily married mum (to two heroes-in-training!), who loves spending time with friends and family. She can be found on Facebook and her website, chatting about reading, writing, cooking, vintage-inspired dresses and all things romantic.

Do you Google yourself?
What one thing would you give up to become a better writer?
Hmmmm, this is a hard one. I could give up chocolate or I could work on my craft and knowledge to make me a better writer. I’ll stick with chocolate, it goes perfectly with coffee and green tea!
What are your favorite literary journals?
I love the monthly journals from Romance Writers of America and Romance Writers of Australia, because of all the interesting information they provide on authors and the industry.
What is your favorite childhood book?
Any of the Famous Five books by Enid Blyton.
How long on average does it take you to write a book?
It depends. Usually between 1-2 months. However, I always spend around 2 weeks developing my characters, the goal/motivation/conflict and set-up, irrespective of the book’s length.
And now, the book:
Forever Mine by Joanne Dannon
|Forever Mine by Joanne Dannon
It’s never a good idea to fall for your best friend’s brother… or so they say.
Hannah Greene is fed up. A romantic at heart, she’s had a major crush on her best friend’s brother for years but he’s never noticed her. To shape a life for herself away from Zac, she must move on.
Zac Warne, smooth-talking sales guy who takes responsibility to a whole new level, loves the thrill of the chase but is not interested in settling down, ever. It’s not that he doesn’t believe in love, it’s just not for him.
But circumstances have Hannah and Zac spending one weekend together and a night of fun leads to more than just emotional consequences for them.
Compelled to right wrongs and beholden to fix problems, Zac has to convince Hannah his about-turn about wanting a relationship with her is not just one of convenience. Can Hannah now trust this smooth-talking playboy who has a reputation for breaking hearts, including her own?
(Forever Mine is the 4th book in the Alex Jackson series and can be read as a standalone book)
