Desperate and Dateless by Joanie MacNeil @JoanieMacneil a fun #contemporary romance #RLFblogJoanie MacNeil, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about your book.

Desperate and Dateless by Joanie MacNeil

Genre: Contemporary Romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Desperate and Dateless? Not Liam Reynolds. He has no time in his busy schedule to foster a romantic liaison. But when his teenage brother, Dan, surprises him with a ticket to the Desperate and Dateless Ball, Liam couldn’t resist the temptation to attend…merely to satisfy his curiosity, of course.
Desperate and Dateless? Certainly not, Zoe O’Malley declares. How dare her girlfriend send her a ticket to the Desperate and Dateless ball! No way will she go anywhere with a computer-matched date. But fate intervenes and when Liam and Zoe are drawn together over a business arrangement prior to the ball, their lives become irretrievably entangled. Can they live by their golden rule–never mix business with pleasure?

QUICK

Do you write more than one genre? If so, what are they?…
I write only contemporary romance, ranging from sweet to sexy stories
How do you come up with ideas?…
With some stories, the idea comes first; with others, it’s a character. There have been times when I’ve had two separate stories in mind – one has no more than a hero/heroine, the other is an idea. Desperate and Dateless, for example. Though I tried to keep them separate, the idea and the characters merged into one story.
What is the single most important part of writing for you
?…
At this point, finishing that first draft. It gives me something tangible to work on to produce the final product, and to move on to the next project.
When did you write your first book
?…
Mid to late 1990s.

FUN

Leather or lace? Lace, but who doesn’t like the smell of leather?
Black or red? Black. It’s so easy to wear and can be brightened colourful accessories.
Satin sheets or smooth cotton? Smooth, fresh cotton.
Ocean or mountains? I love the ocean, the smell, the roll of the waves, but there are mountains that take my breath away
City life or country life? City, for convenience, though I enjoyed living in a little country village during 2007-2012. I enjoyed the peace and relaxed lifestyle, and escapism, but the long daily drive to and from work in the city eventually became too much.
Party life or evening at home? Definitely relaxing at home with a good movie or working on my latest writing project.
Dogs or cats? Cats are my favourites

I am an Australian author of contemporary romance. My novels are a mix of sweet and sexy feel-good stories, most set in Australia.
I love to travel and have visited parts of the world I never dreamed I’d see. From the UK to US; Italy, Croatia, Spain and Portugal; Tunisia, where I took a camel ride into the Sahara desert; Morocco, Paris; the Baltic Capitals, Shetland Islands, Faroe Islands; Noumea, and late in 2017, Iceland and Wales. A summary of my visit to Iceland and link to a Writing Retreat in Wales is on the news page of my website. In mid October this year, I boarded a cruise ship in Southampton, UK, calling into two ports in France; Lisbon, and Barcelona; Gibraltar, then travelling through the Greek Islands, visiting Malta and Rhodes before sailing through the Suez Canal; continuing to Singapore, disembarking on 28 November. Who would have thought that 38 days on the high seas would pass so quickly?
Home, family and friends are important to me. I have blended these elements into some of my stories.

Is It True: December Heat Wave by Joanie MacNeil @JoanieMacneil #RLFblog #ContemporaryRomanceWelcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Let’s play Is It True with today’s guest, Joanie MacNeil author of December Heat Wave, a contemporary romance. This is a game with yes and no questions. Writers can elaborate on answers as much as they choose.

December Heat Wave by Joanie MacNeil

Genre: Contemporary Romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Following the death of her husband, Nicolette Oliver concentrates on re-establishing her career as a dancer, though still dealing with emotional issues relating to her life with Mark. When his friend appears on her doorstep, Nicolette honors her late husband’s invitation and invites Jake to stay.
Jake Harrigan has always been attracted to Nic and sees her as untouchable, even though she is now on her own. They are opposites, their lives and expectations literally worlds apart. Drawn into a romantic interlude, the parting is difficult when Jake returns to Europe to resume his career as TV news journalist and Nic moves to Sydney to begin rehearsals for the show that will resurrect her career.
Jake returns to Australia to see Nic again and also to finalize details with his network to sail around the world making documentaries. Will Jake follow his heart and ask Nic to give up all that she’s worked for and sail away with him?

Is it true:

this is your first book?
No, though I wrote this book early in my career.
this book is part of a series?
No.
you lost sleep while writing this book?
Yes, probably. I tend to lose sleep whenever I’m writing a book.
you did research for this book?
Some. I’d briefly visited the area where I set the story, though had to do a little more research for the setting.
My hero’s career as a photo journalist was inspired by watching TV news and articles I’d read.
My heroine was inspired by a dance performance I watched. I just had to write my heroine as a dancer resurrecting her career following a personal tragedy. I also based the visuals for the lead male dancer on one I’d seen in the show. Fantastic performances and I wish I still had the DVD.
some characters in this book are not human? (pets for example)
All characters are human. No pets.
this book has more than one genre?
Strictly contemporary romance
you speak more than one language?
I did learn German so long ago that I’ve forgotten most of it, and I was never a fluent speaker of the language
you grew up where you live now?
At seventeen, I left home to live in Brisbane which was over an hour away by train in those days. Living in the city meant I could walk to work in ten minutes, so much easier than the two hour plus train travel, and waiting to catch a bus home from the station, especially on cold winter nights.Then at twenty, I moved interstate and have lived in the same city since then, except for about five years where I lived in a little country town. A new experience, but again, a considerable commute each day, this time by car. I thought it ironic that I began my working career with a long daily bus and train journey and ended that career with at least two hour drive each day, and the same early mornings. Exhausting.
you love to read?
Yes. As well as romance I love to read Icelandic Noir. I’m a fan of Ragnar J√≥nasson’s novels.
you are never late?
I endeavour not to be late. I dislike being late when people are depending on me to keep an appointment on time, and vice versa.
you love pizza?
Yes, but it doesn’t like me. I have an intolerance to all grains so pizza is a no-no for me.
you love sushi?
I have tasted sushi in the past, some nice, some not so good. Now it is a no-no for me because of the rice. I was never a big fan of sushi anyway.
you have a pet?
No. With one Veteran husband, three adult children and their partners, one adult stepson, and four young grandsons, who needs pets?
