Intro- I'm the author of...

64 romance novels published by Harlequin Mills and Boon in both Modern/Presents and Medicals as well as a couple of short stories, poetry and a screenplay.

My Life- 

I live in Hobart with my surgeon husband and three miniature poodles. I love walking along long lonely beaches and in the bush.


 Learning to swim as an adult really influenced me in a big way. It taught me to overcome fear and avoidance behaviour. Well… mostly! J

How I write-

I am a mix of pantser and plotter. I really like a basic skeleton to start with so I can flesh it out as I go. Some books are just a couple of finger bones to start with; others are the whole body. It depends on the story, the characters, the theme and also what’s happening in my life.

Motivation- I have always loved the process of writing. Even as a child I wrote stories as soon as I could hold a pen. Even before that I made them up. I love starting with a story idea and characters and then ending up with a complete book where everything works out in the end.

Your Book-

 Dr Bertie Clark has returned to work from her “honeymoon” but is too embarrassed to tell her colleagues she was jilted at the altar. But her brand new boss, handsome ICU specialist (and single!) Dr Matt Bishop, is wary of her holistic approach to medicine and is threatening to pull the plug on her research project. But Bertie is not the only one with a secret. Can this hippy with the big heart unlock the wall that surrounds Matt Bishop’s heart?

  1. Thank you for dropping by my blog and leaving a comment.

    I've always loved writing too... I used to write stories in my head when I was really young too .. ♡

  2. 64 books! Wow you rock! I learnt to swim as an adult, too, and I know exactly what you mean. It taught me push the fear down and just... dive in. I love meeting other authors! Great interview.

  3. Congrats to Melanie! The new book sounds like fun. I'm one who has always loved the process of writing too. :)

  4. I like your remarks about your writing process, Melanie!

  5. Wow, that's a lot of books so a big congrats to you on that.

  6. Sounds like a really fun book! I'm a mix of pantser/plotter too - although it's very much a learning process :)

  7. Holy mackerel! Sixty-four published books! That's fantabulous. I hope your joy at holding each new book in your hands for the first time is as great as it was for the first book.

  8. That's a lot of books! This one is just in time for Valentine's Day!

  9. 64 novels? I hope to reach that number one day. :)

  10. 64? That's beyond epic. Man! Talk about an olympic author!

  11. I like walking long, lonely beaches, too. The ideas roll in just like the waves.

    Hi, Nas!

  12. Interesting. Love the idea of walking. It certainly helps you generate plots and subplots.

    Greetings from London.

  13. I can relate to being a mix of a pantser and plotter. I can imagine that being married to a surgeon helps when writing medical romance. :) Wishing Melanie the best of luck.

  14. I read that cover as "A Date with Her Dog." I was thinking what the plot of that might be when I realized it was "Doc!" 64 books...quite a few. That's amazing.

  15. Congratulations Jess of DMS! You won the Melanie Milburne Giveaway!
