Tricia McGill

I was born in London, England, and migrated to Australia with my husband years ago, settling near Melbourne. I was the youngest in a large, loving, family and never knew what it was like to be lonely or alone. Surrounded by avid readers who taught me the magic of books before I attended school, is it any wonder I became a writer?


I began writing many years ago, but it wasn't until I retired from the fashion industry that I had the time to write full time. Writing is my great passion.

Although my published works cross sub-genres, romance is always at the crux of my stories. I love a happy ending. There's a surfeit of tragedy in the world today so I try not to dwell on the seedier side of life in my books. That's not to say that I don't sometimes shed a tear or two as my heroine endures heartache along the road to that happy ending--and I know by my reader's comments that most cry and laugh along with her.

I love the research entailed in writing historicals and my other great passion, time-travels. Horses and dogs feature largely in my books. My husband bought me a toy poodle soon after our wedding and I bred from her. Since then I've had a succession of dogs and a cat or two and can't imagine life without a dog in the house. I've owned a few horses and raced some. I'd ridden since a teenager but it was only when we settled in Australia that I was able to own my first pony.
