Janet Gover

I grew up surrounded by books. Both my parents loved to read and they shared that love with me. In the tiny Australian bush town where we lived, there wasn’t a lot to do except read and ride my ponies.

After some fun-filled years at Queensland University (during which I passed the occasional exam), I became a television journalist, first in Australia, then in Asia and Europe. I’ve seen and done a lot of unusual things. I met some interesting people, including one Pope, at least three Prime Ministers, a few movie stars and a dolphin.

I also discovered that most interesting people are often the ‘ordinary’ people – who sometimes have quite extraordinary stories to tell.

My first published fiction, a short story called The Last Dragon, appeared in 2002. I love writing short stories and you can check some of them out for free here. My first published novel, The Farmer Needs A Wife was released in 2009. Since then I’ve written more than a dozen books, mostly set in Australia, but also including one Royal Wedding romance, because who doesn’t love a royal wedding. My Coorah Creek series has won or been shortlisted for awards in the UK, USA and Australia – which just goes to show we really do write for an international audience.

In collaboration, Alison and I write as Juliet Bell. Juliet has a love for classic literature, and enjoys taking a closer look at heroes who are not all that heroic.

I am a specialist in online training, and an IT instructor, but best of all, I love working with new writers, just starting their journey as I did all those years ago. I enjoy working to develop writing skills and story ideas, as well as working with a finished manuscript to help it be the very best it can be.

I look after the New Writers’ Scheme run by the Romantic Novelists’ Association, and am part of their learning team.
