1) Tell me a little bit about you
I’m an Australian author of humorous and heartwarming fiction for adults and supernatural mystery for teens, with seven books currently published and several more on the way!
2) What do you love about Christmas?
I love the nostalgia it brings; memories of Christmases past and the magic of childhood. I love that it’s a time to connect with loved ones and appreciate life.
3) What do you hate about Christmas?
The hype and stress around the commercialisation of it all.
4) What is your favourite Christmas book?
I love Debbie Macomber’s Mrs Miracle, and you can’t go past children’s classics like The Night Before Christmas!
5) What is your favourite Christmas song?
That’s a tough one, but I’ve always liked Oh Holy Night, The Most Wonderful Time of the Year, and White Christmas.
6) What was your best Christmas?
I can’t remember exactly, but it would have been when my son was little but old enough to enjoy the excitement for the first time.
7) What was your best Christmas present?
Probably my first publishing contract, which wasn’t really a Christmas present but it was close to that time of year and something I’d really wanted!
8) What was your worst Christmas present?
I honestly can’t think of one! I’m grateful for all gifts.
9) Describe your ideal Christmas
Getting together with special people, sharing great conversation and eating delicious food, warm and balmy summery nights (Australia!), sleeping in, taking some time off to relax, read, watch movies, and think about the year gone and dreams for the year ahead.
10) What do you want for Christmas this year?
For myself and the people I care about to be safe, well, and happy. I also wouldn’t mind booking in for a few indulgent massages! 😉

Published by Escape Publishing - Harlequin Enterprises Genres: Chicklit, Christmas, Love & Romance
A beautiful, uplifting holiday story from bestselling author Juliet Madison about a lonely writer, her grandmother’s ghost, a road trip, and twelve different Daves.
Abby Solomon may write happy-ever-afters for a living, but doesn’t believe she’ll have her own. But then a surprise visit from her grandmother’s ghost sets her off on a journey she’ll never forget.
Grandma Charlotte wants to find her first love, Dave, who she mistakenly thought had died in World War II. A quick trawl through the Yellow Pages yields a list of twelve possibilities, and Abby and Charlotte set off on a Christmas road trip — twelve Daves over twelve days along the sun-drenched east coast of Australia.
With just over a week to make the meeting happen, Abby has to meet a dozen Daves — some sweet, some quirky, some downright dangerous — while trying to honour her book deadline and enduring the awkward challenges of having a ghost as a travelling companion.
But when she comes across a young doctor who looks like the hero in one of her novels, Abby has the chance to discover that true love transcends time and space, and that happy endings aren’t only to be found between the pages of a book.
