For ARR2020 in March we will be featuring more than 90 romance authors across five cities. If you live in (or near) Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Perth or Adelaide, come along and meet local authors, as well as our international guests—Darynda Jones and Susan Donovan.

Today we are spotlighting Erin Grace. She will be attending ARR2020 in Sydney.

How old were you when you first started writing romance?

I was 39. I’ve been writing for 11 years.

Who was the first romance author to catch your interest?

Anna Campbell.

Have you written genres other than romance (or are you thinking about it)?

No. Always romance, various sub genres—historical, western, time travel.

Choose one of your books to turn into a movie—who would you cast in the lead roles?

I’d choose my Christmas book, The Viscount’s Christmas Miracle. Richard Armitage as the hero, and Emily Blunt as the heroine.

What is the hardest part of creating a story?

Getting through the saggy middle.

What is your favourite place to write?

Victorian period England/Scotland.

Have any of your characters been inspired by real-life people?

Many have been inspired by real characteristics from people I’ve met.

What was the last romance you read and loved (and why did you love it)?

Ransom by Julie Gardwood. It’s my favourite romance and my ‘go to’ book when I’m feeling a little down.

Tell us about your latest release in 100 words or less

My latest release is my first historical western romance, called Made for Montana, which is book one in the Black Rock Brides trilogy.

What else will you be working on in 2020?

I have several books planned, including the first in a new series, the Scandalous Lords, called How to Dare a Duke. The second book in the Black Rock Brides trilogy, The Runaway Bride of Black Rock.
