Maggie-Ann's stories are filled with drama and passion, and set in exciting cities around the world.
Where do you write?
I have a large messy desk where I surround myself with books, stationery, pictures of my kids and grandbabies, storyboards, and a wall covered with images of travel destinations. I’m a very visual person and need images of my characters, settings; even a pair of sexy stilettos ignites my imagination.
Are you a goal setter with your writing?
I’m great at setting goals, not so good at meeting them. Being a member of Melbourne Romance Writers Guild, face to face critique group helps to keep me on target. We meet monthly to set goals and share achievements. And the chocolate rewards are a great incentive.
What is your favourite form of procrastination?
Research on the Internet for my stories, reading articles, and participating in writing classes, which are necessary but good avoidance tools. When I notice myself slipping, I focus on my passionate desire to see my Mills and Boon Sexy or Nocturne on shelf! I want to hold that book nearly as much as I wanted to hold my firstborn.
What’s the last thing you do before you finish your daily writing session?
I pathologically backup my writing files to Dropbox, usb stick, 2 external hard-drives. I’ve lost too much work in the past with unreliable computers.
Can you tell us a little about your current WIP?
My current WIP is the Princess of Scandal, the first in a series of three books about a modern noble family.

'You chose this rock around your neck and your grandfather. I’d spent half my life on my parents’ vineyard and I refused to die buried away in the back blocks scraping a living, season by season.’
‘What do you want, Matt?’ Her shoulders slipped, exhaustion washed in waves over her. What did it matter about the winery? She’d given enough of her life to an old man’s dream and put up with enough blackmailing and bullying herself over the last seven years.
