About the Author: Melanie Corona

I was born in Darwin in the Northern Territory of Australia, and raised in Alice Springs the very center of the country I have always loved reading and telling tall tales and wrote poetry all the time My greatest influence was my grandpa Majid who kept us entertained all the time with his stories, music and passion for writing I didn t tell anyone I wrote when I started because I was to shy, I have no idea why I was like that I don t care now, I have stories to tell and I want to share them I am not, and never will profess to be an awesome writer, but I will try to entertain, while bringing to life the history of my country, one page at a time.

    This is the second book by Ms Corona, and I love it just as much, if notthan I did her first book A Friendship s Love.A Love of Conviction is the story of Eliza and William, and some of the story runs in parallel to A Friendship s Love but you don t have to have read it.Ms Corona has a knack for descriptive writing While the characters are on the convict ship you can practically feel the roll of the waves, smell the sea air, feel the grip of the irons around your wrists and ankles Sh This is the second book by Ms Corona, and I love it just as much, if notthan I did her first book A Friendship s Love.A Love of Conviction is the story of Eliza and William, and some of the story runs in parallel to A Friendship s Love but you don t have to have read it.Ms Corona has a knack for descriptive writing While the characters are on the convict ship you can practically feel the roll of the waves, smell the sea air, feel the grip of the irons around your wrists and ankles She draws you right in there with her characters, and it is as if you are sitting right there with them.I am not a big reader of historical romance, but there is just something so real about this Settler s series Ms Corona writes about Australia s convict history sympathetically and does not romanticise things She does not glamourise what convicts went through, she tells it as it was, the good the bad and the ugly side of things And this just makes me love her writing even .I cannot wait to see what she brings us next
