Over to Juanita now...
What do you love most about writing?
I can create a world where love conquers everything and no mountain is too high to climb.
What do you think makes a good story?
Characters you love and a story that’s written from the heart.
You write about exotic places – what is your ideal holiday destination?
 
I loved Japan. It has a scandalous history and many interesting places to visit. I love their beautiful, peaceful gardens that seem so out of place in the middle of a smoggy, urban jungle. The contrast between ancient and modern Japan is fascinating.
Anywhere you haven’t travelled you would like to go?
New York, Hawaii, Fiji, the UK – so many places to go!
What one item do you always pack when you travel?
My kindle, so I can read anywhere.
Tell us a little about your current release...
In Fly Away Peta, my hero Jaime Caruso has never forgotten his first love, Peta Johnson. For a while, she was his world until he decided to set her free. She was young, ambitious, had dreams to fulfill and he didn’t want to hold her back from achieving those dreams. On the advice of his parents, who decide she is not the perfect match for their son, he leaves town to work for his father and becomes a successful businessman in the mining industry.
 
Years later, he returns to his hometown of Williams in rural Western Australia to find Peta there and she’s in a world of trouble. Her daughter has been kidnapped and Jaime is soon caught up in a web of lies, deceit and danger. Without hesitation, he launches headfirst into fray to protect the woman he loves. Their journey to happiness is fraught with danger and secrets, sprinkled with tender moments and promises of happy ever-afters, but I’ve made them work very hard to get there. Love doesn’t come easy, after all.

  5. Hi Nas, Hi Juanita. I hope you write a story with Japan as a background one day Juanita, if it was half as action-packed and fantastic as Fly Away Peta was, it'd be a winner for sure :)
