If you think a rural lifestyle, an inspiring landscape and salt-of-the-earth people are the things of romance novels then you’ll learn a lot from today’s guest, Fiona Palmer. Fiona not only lives the romantic dream but she turns it on its head in fine style. Let’s try again. Picture stock car races, fishing at places you only get to see in hardcore 4×4 magazines and wheat harvesters with wheels taller than most of us, and you start to get a mere glimpse of this woman’s life. Watch the The Day in the Life of an Australian Author Youtube clip here and you start to see that eight books didn’t happen because of the romantic dream but more by damned hard work and fitting writing in with a life that can only be described as a tad busy and fulfilling. If there’s one person that can share a few tips on knuckling down and getting the writing done it’s Fiona. But be warned, after listening to this you’ll never be able to use the excuse, ‘I haven’t got time’, again. You can find out more about Fiona, her romantic lifestyle and view her beautiful pics here.
