Talli Roland: Fun, Romantic Fiction With a Dose of Bittersweet
Talli Roland writes fun, romantic fiction. Born and raised in Canada, Talli now lives in London, where she savours the great cultural life (coffee and wine).
Despite training as a journalist, Talli soon found she preferred making up her own stories–complete with happy endings. Talli’s debut novel The Hating Game was short-listed for Best Romantic Read at the UK’s Festival of Romance, while her second, Watching Willow Watts, was selected as an Amazon Customer Favourite. Her novels have also been chosen as top books of the year by industry review websites and have been bestsellers in Britain and the United States.

I find THE DAILY MAIL comes in handy for a little inspiration (can’t believe I just admitted that, but it is indeed stranger than fiction). And, of course, when all else fails, I turn to wine.
