Loving Nick Again by Joanie MacNeil
Genre: Contemporary romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
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.
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.
