Books We Love's Tantalizing Talent ~ Author Tricia McGill
Tricia McGill was born in London many moons ago, but moved to Australia
50 years ago come next October. She worked in the fashion industry most of her
working life, following in the footsteps of her mother and sisters, who all
worked in this trade in one form or another. The primary school she attended is
still going strong. In this small local school one of her favorite lessons was
English and she was one of the best spellers in her class, and loved to be the
one asked by the teacher to stand and read for the class. Maths and science
held little interest for her, but reading, well, the local library was a
treasure house full of adventure and excitement.
Tricia’s books can be found here on her BWL author page:
"I’ve always been a dreamer and some of my dreams have ended up in my
books. Always a romantic it followed that this would be my chosen genre. I love
reading and hence writing Time-Travels and hope someone invents a time machine
in my lifetime. How exciting would it be to travel back in time to see what it
was really like to live without mod-cons and all the things that we rely on today?
But—I would always want to return to my nice comfy home and my gadgets. And how
would I live without my computer? And air conditioner? I can’t imagine what it
must have been like to be a woman in the days when they had to wear layers and
layers of unnecessary clothing, not to mention corsets!
My romances cross a few sub-genres and as well as Time-Travels I write
contemporary romance, historical, mainstream, and futuristic.
When not writing or working on my books I am a volunteer for a community
group that assists disabled folk in their homes with their computer and the
internet, a fulfilling pastime.
Any left-over time I like to potter about in my garden, walk my two
small dogs or spend time with friends and family."
