Today I have the pleasure of introducing contemporary-rural romance author, Cathryn Hein.
I’m from: I was born and grew up in Mount Gambier, S.A. but thanks to my partner’s job we move around a lot so where I’m from tends to vary. Currently I’m a Melbournian, although for how long I don’t know!
Three words to describe me: Inquisitive, affable and content.
At home I cook: Anything and everything. I love to cook and experiment with different recipes all the time.
My worst habit is: According to my other half my worst habit is what he calls my “Feral Cheryl” mood, which is when I get an attack of the tidy-ups and start nagging over things not being in their proper place.
It’s a bit daggy but I love: The Eurovision Song Contest. Overloaded with kitschy fun!
My first job was: Picking flowers for a very, very strange man during my gap year. I lasted less than two weeks. After that I stuck to horse-riding jobs. Far safer!
I procrastinate by: Browsing my cookbook collection. Although I have been known to zone out on Spider Solitaire…
Three things people might not know about me are:
- I love Dr Who, especially the David Tennant incarnation, and possess a sonic screwdriver.
- I have a postgraduate diploma in business management.
- My best ideas usually occur in the shower.
Favourite author: I admire and adore so many authors it’s impossible to choose a standout favourite. Plus it really depends on my mood.
Current reading: Kate Morton’s The Distant Hours
Favourite book as a child: The Black Stallion by Walter Farley.
Favourite movie: Love, Actually. Although I LOVE the Indian Jones trilogy.
When I was young I wanted to be: An Olympic equestrienne or vet. Preferably both.
Why I write: Because not following this dream is unthinkable.
Latest Project: In between madly promoting my latest release, Heart of the Valley, I’m working on another rural romance, this time set in far-western Victoria and featuring a scarred hero, a feisty but damaged heroine, a warty horse and a mad goose with a Napoleon complex
