Justine Lewis spent her professional life writing legal advice Ė which some may say is similar to creative writing - but the lack of sexy heroes and happy endings led her to try writing romance.

Justine has placed in the finals of Romance Writers of Australia writing contests, winning the Emerald Short Award in 2014.

She loves Earl Grey tea, talking about which of Jane Austen's novels is her favourite, and searching for the perfect frock. She will read anything, but loves romance most of all. Her latest book, Acting the Part, is out now.
