Tanya Thistleton was born in Bavaria, near Germany. She has ridden horses for Australia, groomed dogs for a living, been a lawyer for too long and married for love. And then there was more; the fortune of a son. She lives in Victoria, Australia, caring for aged horses who were once fit to ride, a bounding thing more perennial pup than dog and two males, both boys, distinguishable only by the beauty of youth on the part of one, and the worn edges of years of boyhood on the part of the other and a bright, bubbly baby girl. There are no cats, yet, but a hideous mortgage. Published already (in the Quadrant Magazine amongst others) she now adds two novels to her success. Just and Equitable having been published by Custom Book Publications as well as a second novel Counsel's Objection out now.
