Name? Anita Joy.
Where are you? Brisbane.
How many years have you been a member of RWAustralia? 3 years.
What genre do you write? Category SuperRomance.
Who are your favourite authors?
That is such a hard question to answer so I'll just list the authors on my 'over my dead body will I part with them bookshelf'
What inspired you to write romance?
I started out writing fantasy in my teens, but when I looked at what I was reading, it didn't matter what the genre the book had to have romance in it. Seemed natural to start writing pure romance.
Who's your dream agent and/or dream publisher?
Agent - Jen Schober, Spencerhill Associates; Publisher - Harlequin
What's the best thing about going to conference?
Gosh, so many things... me time, socialising, spending time with people who understand(!), soaking up everything I can about writing and immersing myself, the inspiration it leaves me with when I get home
And lastly, finish these statements...
My greatest strength as a writer is...my determination.
A sexy hero needs...to be someone I fall in love with.
My latest WIP (work in progress) is about...a fish out of water in a great Aussie setting.
When I write I like to...be in an empty house and lose track of time.
My best writing milestone to date is...when I finished my very first ms - still love the memory of that feeling.
