About margarettanner

WHO IS MARGARET TANNER? BIO: Margaret Tanner is an award winning, Australian author, who writes Historical Romance and Western Romance, with some contemporary romance as well. She loves delving into the pages of history as she carries out research for her historical romance novels. No internet site is too hard to traverse, or book too old or tattered for her to trawl through, and no museum is too dusty. Many of her novels have been inspired by true events, with one being written around the hardships and triumphs of her pioneering ancestors in frontier Australia. She has found from writing Western Historical novellas, that frontier Australia and frontier America, had many similarities, isolated communities, a large single male population and a lack of marriageable women. Margaret is married and has three grown up sons, and two gorgeous little granddaughters. Outside of her family and friends, writing is her passion. http://www.margarettanner.com/ http://www.amazon.com/author/margarettanner

Bachelor and Babies Series (Book 2) – Margaret Tanner

What would you do if you were a bachelor and found a discarded baby in the 1800’s?

Take it into the nearest town? Take it to an orphanage? Give it to some woman to care for. Or keep it and try to bring it up yourself?

In the 14 book, Bachelor and Babies Series, this is what has happened. Single men find themselves with an abandoned baby to care for. Each bachelor handles it in his own unique way.

My bachelor, Logan, decides to keep the baby he has found discarded in the wilderness of South Dakota.

This story is at times humorous, sad and poignant in equal measure as Logan, who has had no experience with babies, struggles to give this little one a decent home.

As in all love stories it does have the mandatory HEA ending.

Cold Cure – Margaret Tanner

During research on gypsies for a novella, I found this interesting information.

Use the juice of a chopped onion and sprinkle it with sugar to relieve colds.

Also, once a gypsy woman is married she must subject herself to the commands of her husband’s family until her first child is born, then it is deemed that she has fully entered womanhood.

If you would like to check out any of my books, here is my kindle link.



Comfort Food – Margaret Tanner

Comfort food what is it? Of course, food that makes you comfortable, happy and content. A reward for doing something well, or a panacea for all the trials and tribulations you have had to put up with? No matter what excuse we use, and I have used them all i.e. if something good has happened to me, I reward myself with chocolate. On the other hand, if something bad has happened to me and I need cheering up, I reward myself with a chocolate.

What is my favourite food you might ask? Well, being a chocaholic, you know what I am going to say –  Chocolate, closely followed by biscuits (or as American’s say, cookies). My hips bear witness to this addiction of mine.

My favourite chocolate is milk chocolate, followed by dark chocolate, (which scientists are now saying is good for you, I could have told them that), and white chocolate. I have to confess I am not a great fan of white chocolate, and as much as it pains me to admit it, I find it too sweet and sickly.

I prefer a plain chocolate bar, but I do enjoy a chocolate bar with peppermint or honeycomb in it.

As authors I am sure we can all relate to this.




Weed Killer – Margaret Tanner

Hi everyone,

Nothing to do with Western Romance, but I thought I would post it anyway for all those who love their gardens, but don’t like using insecticides. I have tried it and it works.

WEED KILLER:  Put one litre of vinegar in bucket, followed by ½ cup salt and a few squirts of dishwashing liquid. 

 Mix it around, then pour on weeds. They should die within days.


Follow the brave women in this series who have overcome betrayal and found men worthy of their love. Free on Kindle Unlimited.
