Session 2A—Tropelicious

All romance readers have at least one favourite trope—a lot of them have many! This panel will explore our favourite tropes, giving examples of some of their favourite stories for each. We will also look at tropes across subgenres, whether there are any specific to some subgenres, tropes that have come and gone and ones that have stood the test of time.

The panellists

2a-photosCassandra Dean is the author of nine historical and fantasy romances, including the popular Silk series, and was a 2016 finalist in the Romance Writers of Australia’s coveted R*BY Award. Cassandra lives in Adelaide, South Australia.

Eden Summers is a bestselling author of contemporary romance with a side of sizzle and sarcasm. She lives in Australia with a young family who are well aware she’s circling the drain of insanity. Eden can’t resist alpha dominance, dark features and sarcasm in her fictional heroes and loves a strong heroine who knows when to bite her tongue but also serves retribution with a feminine smile on her face.

Kylie Scott writes in the new adult and fantasy/horror romance genre and is the winner of the ARRA Australian Romance Writer of Year Award in 2013 and 2014. Kylie’s popular Stage Dive series has been translated into six different languages. The second title in her spin-off Dive Bar series, Twist, is due out in 2017. Kylie lives in south-east Queensland.
