From the spectacular beauty of Victoria’s lush western districts comes this deeply emotional story of grief, courage and love.

April’s Rainbow is a really beautiful story exploring terrible grief but from a very interesting perspective which sets it apart. It’s heartbreak and love, despair and fragile hope that packs an emotional punch that will stay with you.” 9/10 1Girl2ManyBooks

Let Tristan and April take your heart on a romantic journey like no other.

Thanks for visiting my website, the place to discover everything about me, my books and more. I’m a rural romance and romantic adventure author, seriously untidy cook, mad keen but sadly untalented golfer, and Australian Rules Football lover. Most of all, I want to take your heart on an adventure. So look around, sign up to my newsletter, explore the blog, and have fun.

I love to hear from readers so feel free to contact me through the Contact page, or via Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and Goodreads.

July Update:

It’s pretty frosty here at the foot of the Blue Mountains, as you’d expect this time of year, but that makes it wonderful weather for snuggling inside and writing and reading up a storm.

Edits for my next full-length release Wayward Heart are done (wheeee!) and in the hands of my publisher, which means a cover and finalised release date will be just around the corner. I can’t wait! Newsletter subscribers will share in this exciting update first so to ensure you don’t miss out, sign up today. Subscribers also receive exclusive offers and giveaways, and access to a couple of short stories to enjoy over a cuppa.

If you’re in Adelaide this August, make sure you add to your diary the Australian Romance Readers Association booksigning event in on Saturday 20th, where I and many other romance authors will be very excited to meet you and sign your books. I’ve also booked my place at the 2017 Australian Romance Readers Convention in Melbourne. If you love romance novels, chatting about books, and having fun with your tribe, this event is for you. Details of both events on the ARRA website.

The blog is trotting happily along as always with regular series Teaser Tuesday (often featuring a giveaway), My Favourite Reads, and the weird and wonderfulness that is This Writing Life. Take a look. It’s fun!

If you’d like to learn more about how I came to write any of my books, there’s a Story Behind page for each title. Simply visit the books page, click on the story you’d like to know more about and follow the links.

Until next time, happy reading!
