Today I’m very lucky to be interviewing Toni Griffin author of Determined Mate.

Hi Toni, thank you for agreeing to this interview. Tell us a little about yourself, your background, and your current book.

I live in Darwin, the smallest of Australia’s capital cities. I hated english with a passion at school and found my strength lay with numbers.

Now, I love escaping to the worlds I create and hope to continue to do so for many years to come. I’m a single mother of one and I work full time at a Casino. When I’m not writing or spending time with my daughter you can just about guarantee that I’ll be reading one of the many MM authors I love.

Determined Mate is the second book in my Holland Brothers series, and stars Jason Matthews and Alex Holland. I’m here to celebrate its recent release in Audio.

How do you feel about e-books vs print books?

Personally I read more e-books than I do print these days. However, I don’t think there’s anything quite like seeing your very own story in print.

What process did you go through to get your first book published?

I was actually really lucky when I submitted my first book. I submitted the story online to a publisher at about midnight, I received an email the following morning letting me know they wanted to published the book. I had no idea what to expect with editing, covers, marketing and such, but you learn as you go.

How do you find or make time to write?

With great difficulty. I would absolutely love to be able to do this full time, but as a single mum with a mortgage I would need to have a great deal of savings behind me to even think of it. At the moment I have to trying an find time between working full time, spending time with my daughter and sleep. Some days I’m successful. Others not so much.

Name one person who you feel supported you outside of your family members?

Ever since I met her, Freddy MacKay has been nothing but supportive of my writing. That woman just pushed and pushed, because she knows exactly what I’m capable of. No matter what’s going on in my life, I know I can always turn to her for support.

Tell us about a book you’re reading now.

Well last night I actually finished reading the Ongoing Reformation of Mitchell Johnson by Sean Kennedy, another Aussie author. This book is set in the same world as Tigers and Devils. I love that series, I read it way back when it was originally released and have followed the original series this whole time. I can’t wait to read the next book in this new series.


Toni Griffin lives in Darwin, the smallest of Australia’s capital cities. Born and raised in the state she’s a Territorian through and through. Growing up Toni hated english with a passion (as her editors can probably attest to) and found her strength lies with numbers.

Now, though, she loves escaping to the worlds she creates and hopes to continue to do so for many years to come. She’s a single mother of one and works full time. When she’s not writing you can just about guarantee that she will be reading one of the many MM authors she loves.

Feel free to drop her a line at anytime.
