Immersive Storytelling: A deep dive into writing compelling stories with Joanne Speirs

Step into your characters’ shoes to create dynamic scenes. Harness the power of your personal experiences and deep POV to write books that will captivate and delight your readers.

Joanne Speirs grew up on a farm in a small rural community on the Eyre Peninsula of South Australia, where she wrangled sheep with her dad, baked, sewed and crafted with her mum and was a keen netballer. Scouring the school library shelves for Sweet Valley High romance novels became a favourite pastime in her teens and fuelled her passion for reading and writing. She now lives in Adelaide with her two teenage boys, husband, and border collie, and she uses her life experiences as inspiration for her contemporary rural romance stories. Her debut, Second Chance Love in Point Perry, (Harlequin/Harper Collins) was runner-up in the prestigious Romance Writers of Australia Valerie Parv Award in 2019 and longlisted for the Romance Writers of Australia Emerald Award in 2020, and she was recently awarded Favourite Debut Romance Author 2023.

When she’s not writing, she’s chief line & copyeditor + proofreader at Nurturing Words, specialising in editing manuscripts for self-publishing romance authors.
