Author interview with Melissa Kendall







1.     Congratulations on the release of your latest work, Fall In Love. Can you tell us a little bit about it? It is a novella about an Aussie Farmer who is lonely living on a remote cattle station. He goes in search of someone to share his life and finds more than he ever expected to.

Michael Dunbar runs his families cattle station in the far north of Western Australia. Station life is lonely and he wishes there was a way that he could find a companion that wouldn’t mind living the outback life with him. In hopes of finding a woman, Michael heads to Broome for a few weeks holiday. What he finds is something he never expected to. Mia Mason a Perth girl, who longs to leave the city behind for a life in the country. Can two like minds fall in love, only destiny knows?

2.     What prompted you to write this particular story? Was there a special event, occurrence, song etc. that sparked an idea?
This is kind of an odd/funny story. Here in Australia we have a reality TV show called ‘Farmer Wants a Wife’ I was watching one night and suddenly my mind was like wonder what a farmer would have to go through if he couldn’t find a wife and he didn’t have a TV show to help him. Next thing I knew I had written 7000 words in about 3 hours.
 
3.     Which of your characters do you relate to the most, and why?
I think I relate to Mia the most there is definitely a lot of me in her.

4.     Did you have a character or scene that you struggled with? How were you able to push through?
Thankfully, this is one of my stories that just poured out of me, and I wasn’t really stuck on it at all. But usually if I am stuck I put whatever I am working on aside for a while and when I come back to it I can move on.
5.     If you were able to spend an evening with one of your characters, who would you choose, and why?
It would most definitely be Michael he is a sweetheart in a rough a ready package and I would love to spend a night with him.


6.     Do you have any writing quirks?
Silence! I must have silence that is why you will most likely find me up after midnight typing away furiously on my laptop.

7.    Favorite author or book? Oh there are just too many to list and they change so regularly

8.     What are three things your readers don’t know about you?
a.     My grammar and punctuation usually sucks unless I am writing smut then it seems to be perfect for some reason.
b.    I have visited more than half of the US states.
c.     I want to visit all Disneyland’s in the world, before I die. So far I have been to all the LA parks, all the Florida parks and the Hong Kong park.

9.     What is the strangest thing you’ve ever eaten?
I am an extremely fussy eater so I am very bland with my eating so I don’t think I have ever eaten anything strange.

10.     What is the craziest thing you’ve ever done?
ooo probably when I went paragliding in Vancouver.

11. If ‘Fall In Love’ were made into a movie, who would you like to see cast?
Oh this one is easy a young Hugh Jackman.

 Author bio:

I am a 36 year-old mother of a 3-year-old son. I live in Perth Western Australia. I am predominantly a stay at home mum, though iIdo still work a few hours a week as a Software Support Consultant to keep my brain active.

I have always loved to read and write and spent most of my teens writing poetry and short stories. Over the years as daily life pressures got in the way I lost the passion for it. After my son was born, I was looking for something to do while feeding him because as fun as just watching him drink was, I wanted something to keep my brain active. I discovered online books and well my interest in writing was rekindled. It has been a large part of my life ever since.
