Leisl is a tall red head with an overly large imagination. As a child, she identified strongly with Anne of Green Gables. A voracious reader and a born performer, it came as no surprise to anyone when she did a double major in English Literature and Drama for her BA, then went on to a career as an actor, singer and dancer, as well as script writer, stage manager and musical director for cabaret and theatre restaurants (one of which she co-owned and ran for six years).

Destination Romance is a gorgeous, travel-themed anthology of ten stories by different authors. The common thread is that all the adventures start with a trip to a small town travel agent, Maggie Redmond. From there, the stories spread out to explore the highways and byways of romance. My story is ‘Living in the Past’, and my main character, Naomi, wants to take a hands-on approach to Europe’s medieval history. Continue reading “Unpacking “Destination Romance” with Melanie Page!”

From my earliest years I preferred to play with Barbie dolls rather than baby dolls because I could create a cast of characters and force them to live out my fantasies.
An avid reader from the dawn of time, I love contemporary romance, vintage romance, fantasy romance, scifi romance, historical romance, mystery romance, dystopian romance…you’re probably picking up a theme here.
There is one thing I absolutely insist on in my books, both reading and writing and that is a happy ending. It’s natural that I should gravitate to Romance because that is the key selling point – a happy ever after!
I live in the beautiful Macedon Ranges in Victoria on a few acres, with my husband, two young adult sons, and black lab.
My current series are the Christie Ryan Romantic Mysteries (small town, seaside settings) and the Doctor Grok’s Peculiar Shop paranormal shorts. My short contemporary romance – The Jade Heart – is in the RWA anthology Little Gems: Jade.
Apart from writing, I read as much as possible, love music, good wine and company, animals of all kinds, and visiting future settings for books.
I’m a member of Romance Writers Australia and Australian Romance Readers Assoc.
