Margaret Tanner is an award-winning, multi-published Australian author, who writes Contemporary Romance, Historical Romance, and Western Romance with a small dose of sizzle.
She loves delving into the pages of history as she carries out research for her historical novels. No book is too old or tattered for her to trawl through, no museum too dusty, or website too hard to navigate. Many of her novels have been inspired by true events, with one being written around the hardships and triumphs of her pioneering ancestors in frontier Australia. She once spent a couple of hours in an old goal cell so she could feel the chilling cold and fear
She has now fallen in love with writing Western Historical Romance and found it an easy transition. Frontier Australia and frontier America, have many similarities such as isolated communities living in a harsh, unforgiving environment, a large single male population, and a lack of marriageable women.
Her stories are drama-laden. Her heroes hide behind a rough exterior. They are tough men who are prepared to face danger and overwhelming odds for the women they love. Her heroines are brave, resourceful women willing to endure hardship and danger in an untamed land, if it means they can win the heart of the men they love.
Margaret is married and has three grown up sons, and two gorgeous little granddaughters.
Outside of her family and friends, writing is her passion.
