My fellow Aussie author today is Rhian Cahill, one of my very favorites and a lady whose advice I take very seriously. *cue in fan girl squeal here*
Is there an author that makes you go all "fangirl"?
Two. :) Jill Shalvis and Nora Roberts.
Who are your favorite literary characters? (Yours or someone else's)
Moonface. Without a doubt. He was my first ‘hero’. It’s amazing how that one character had such an impact on me as a kid.
Where do you do your best work?
In my head. :) Okay, I should expand on that. I have noise reducing headphones that I put on to block out the rest of the world and I literally disappear into my head. I don’t always get to do it unfortunately. Real life and the tribe get in the way :( but when I do the words just fly off my fingertips.
Are you a plotter or fly by the seat of your pants writer?
Seat of my pants. It was pointed out the other day that I tend to plot in my head so I guess I’m a mix but I never write a plot. I might jot down a couple of notes or a scene that’s from later in the book but that’s it. Everything else comes in the moment.
Share the titles of three books on your bedside table.
Um, there aren’t any paper books there. But I always have my Nook and iPad which of course have hundreds of books so let’s see......Once In A Lifetime - Jill Shalvis (just finished last night. LOVED), Melting The Ice - Jaci Burton, and Four Weddings And A Fireman - Jennifer Bernard.
How do you find balance with your writing and real life?
Balance? What’s balance? *grabs dictionary*
Describe yourself in 3 words.
Um...is it a bad thing that my mind just went completely blank? lol Okay, let’s see. Honest (sometimes too honest), busy and right now exhausted. :(
How many times were you turned down from a book offer before you finally got published?
I’m not so sure I should answer this one....... The first novella I submitted got accepted. *ducks rotten tomatoes*
Ha ha, as if. That is fantastic - good for you!
How do you come by your ideas?
Hell if I know! They’re just there and they seem to multiply like rabbits! Too many ideas not enough time to write them!
What fears do you face with the release of each book?
The usual. Will they like it? Will it sell well? Will it make new readers go back and buy my others? Will it make readers anxious for my next one?
In this game of chase, a kiss isn’t the only reward.
Are You Game? Book 2
Divorced with two teenage daughters, Jody Walsh doesn’t need any more complications in her life, and Dan O’Conner is proving to be a big one. His pursuit may give her bruised ego a much-needed boost, but Jody’s learned to guard her heart and trust is something she isn’t willing to give another man no matter how well he kisses.
One kiss and Dan knows what he wants. He isn’t about to walk away from the kind of chemistry he and Jody have. Unfortunately, the more he chases the more she runs. If only he could get her running in his direction.
When a night of passion doesn’t convince her they’re meant to be, Dan is left with no choice but to prove he’s worth taking a risk on, no matter how much he complicates her life.
Product WarningsStory contains a woman not willing to put her heart at risk and a man determined to persuade her otherwise—and he’s willing to use his washing machine to show her why he’s worth it.

Bio (with links) -
Rhian Cahill is the alter ego of a stay-at-home mother of four. With motherly duties rapidly dwindling Rhian is able to make use of the fertile imagination she used to keep herself sane for all those years of slavery. Having spent some years living overseas and visiting tropical climates has helped inspire some steamy stories. Multi-published in erotic romance and contemporary romance, Rhian, with the help of Mr. Muse, spends her days and nights writing. When not glued to the keyboard you’ll find her book in hand avoiding any and all housework.
