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.

September Update:

It’s September and spring has definitely sprung here at the foot of the Blue Mountains with cerulean skies and lovely sunshine. I won’t be playing in it any time soon though—I have a book to finish and another to rewrite. No rest for this busy author!

Wayward Heart is now up for pre-order and I’m so excited. I’ve just finished proof reading it and was reminded how much I adore this story. As for the cover… wow. That baby is smokin’. Australian and New Zealand readers can pre-order ebook and print copies right now from all the major online retailers.

I’m working flat out on Santa and the Saddler and have just about finished the first draft so I’m very optimistic of getting this novella out in time for Christmas. No promises though. There’s still a lot of work ahead but I do hope I get it done. Like Wayward Heart, I adore this story and have developed a terrible crush on the hero Danny. But that’s pretty much situation normal for me.

Want to know what books I’ve been enjoying lately? Check out the blog and My Favourite Reads. You’ll also find regular series Teaser Tuesday as well as This Writing Life, where I share all the weird and wonderful experiences of my writing world. Take a look, it’s fun, and if you scroll down you’ll find a bunch of photos from the recent Romance Writers of Australia Conference.

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.

Lastly, if you’re a fan and never want to miss a new release, please take a moment to sign up to my newsletter. You’ll not only hear all the news first, you’ll have access to exclusive offers and giveaways along with a bonus couple of short stories to enjoy over a cuppa.

Until next time, happy reading!
