Meet Joanne Macgregor
When not writing, Joanne Macgregor is a counselling psychologist in private practice in Johannesburg, South Africa, where she works mainly with victims of crime and trauma. Although she lives in the frenetic adrenaline-rush of the big city, Joanne has always been in love with nature, and escapes into the African wilds whenever she can. She's a Harry Potter fanatic, bakes the best choc-chip cookies on the planet, and is addicted to chilies and bulletproof coffee. She started her professional life as a high school English teacher and loves writing about, and for, teens. She is the author of several books for Young Adults, including The Law of Tall Girls, Hushed, Recoil, Refuse, Rebel, Scarred, and - for younger YA readers - Turtle Walk, Rock Steady and Fault Lines.
She’s an obsessed fan. He’s a Hollywood heartthrob. When their worlds collide, will love or heartbreak triumph? When 18-year-old Romy Morgan saves Hollywood superstar Logan Rush from drowning, she’s offered a job as his personal assistant. She strikes a deal to reinvent herself from top to toe, in exchange for entering the exciting world of the movies, and love sparks between her and Logan. But the movie set is a world of illusion, where appearances don’t match reality, and Romy soon discovers that she’s in real danger of being silenced, and of losing both her dreams and her self-respect. When she discovers a dreadful secret with the power to destroy Logan, Romy must choose between love and revenge. Hushed delivers enchanting romance with all the feels, plus a twist of humor, and a subtle nod and a wink to The Little Mermaid. This contemporary young adult novel makes great reading for fans of Kasie West, Stephanie Perkins, Jenny Han, Sarah Dessen, Morgan Matson and Julie Buxbaum.
