Books We Love's Tantalizing Talent ~ Author Margaret Tanner

Margaret Tanner is an award winning, multi-published Australian author, who writes Historical Romance and sweet Western Romance. She loves delving into the pages of history as she carries out research for her historical romance novels, and prides herself on being historically correct. No book is too old or tattered for her to trawl through, no museum too dusty. Her favorite historical period is the 1st World War, and she has visited the battlefields of Gallipoli, France and Belgium, a truly poignant experience.
With the encouragement of friend and Western Romance author, Susan Horsnell, she has fallen in love with writing Western Historical Romance.  Frontier Australia and frontier America, have many similarities, isolated communities, a large single male population and a lack of eligible women.

Margaret is married and has three grown up sons, and a gorgeous little granddaughter. Outside of her family and friends, writing is her passion.

From Margaret: "Many of my novels have been inspired by true events, with one being written around the hardships and triumphs of my pioneering ancestors in frontier Australia. I once spent a couple of hours in an old goal cell so I could feel the chilling cold and fear. 

The pioneers in both the United States and Australia literally fought for life and endured great hardships, to forge our nations as we know them today. I don’t want their sacrifice and courage to be forgotten. This is why I write historical romance."
