Justine has placed in the finals of Romance Writers of Australia writing contests, winning the Emerald Short Award in 2014.
She loves Earl Grey tea, talking about which of Jane Austen's novels is her favourite, and searching for the perfect frock. She will read anything, but loves romance most of all. Her latest book, Acting the Part, is out now.
My mother read this to my sisters and me one family holiday, much like the father read it to his son in the book (and the grandfather in the movie). It has been one of my favourite books ever since. I love that a book can have everything Ė romance, adventure, sword fights, murder, and also be so so funny. Every sentence is a gem. This book taught me that there is such a thing as a fairy-tale for grownups.
