Maxine Sullivan credits her mother for her lifelong love of romance novels, so it was a natural progression for her to want to write them. This led to over twenty years of submitting stories to the Harlequin Mills and Boon line, working hard at learning her craft with each manuscript and with each rejection. Maxine still has one of those very first rejections dated August 1986, and looks upon it as a symbol of never giving up on her dream of being published.
That dream came true in 2006 when Maxine entered a writing contest on eHarlequin.com that led to her first sale to the Silhouette Desire imprint. How fitting that the day the senior editor called was January 26 — Australia Day in Maxine's homeland!
Maxine also writes short stories and has had success selling them to magazines worldwide. She currently lives in Melbourne, Australia, but has traveled to New Zealand, the UK and the USA. In her own backyard, she has visited and lived in many places in Australia, including many years in Darwin in the tropical north, where some of her books are set. She is married to Geoff, who has proven his hero status many times over the years. They have two handsome sons and an assortment of previously abandoned animals.
Maxine is thrilled to be the second Australian to write for the Silhouette Desire line.
