Margaret Sutherland


I am a New Zealand author, but have lived in Australia for many years. I have been writing contemporary fiction for several decades. It's one of the things I love to do. Yes, I've won prizes, grants and awards, and treasure the good reviews. But the real joy is conceiving, writing and finishing a new book. Recently I have made a change of genre, giving expression to happy endings, and I must admit my family of dogs was pressing me to give them a home in a book soon. So I have embarked on writing romantic fiction. Romance with dogs might sound a strange combination, but my first book, SEVEN LITTLE WORDS,is attracting 5 star reviews.A second romance, A NEW ENGLAND ROMANCE, is also set in Australia, while VALENTINE MASQUERADE will be out for Valentine's Day. Yes, more dogs! plus contemporary romance with real-life issues in the mix. I'm really enjoying branching into a new genre and am already at work on another story of lovers, family, children ... and dogs.
