Latest Release


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

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.

June Update:

It’s bucketing down as I write this. After a glorious and unseasonally warm autumn, winter has well and truly arrived. I can’t say that I mind too much because I’m flat out working on edits for my next full-length rural romance release Wayward Heart as well as finishing off my work-in-progress, and spending most of my days at the computer.

Going over these edits makes me realise how much I love Wayward Heart and its characters. I can’t wait to tell you more about the book but, as usual, newsletter subscribers will be first to hear any news so if you haven’t signed up yet, join the cool crew today. There are occasional giveaways and other fun stuff, plus you’ll have immediate access to a couple of short stories to enjoy over a cuppa.

Tickets are now available for the Australian Romance Readers Association booksigning event in Adelaide on Saturday, August 20th where I and many other lovely romance authors, will be very excited to meet and chat with you, and sign your books. Check out the ARRA blog for details.

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. While you’re here, check out the blog where regular series Teaser Tuesday is kicking along, and you’ll also find my favourite reads each month along with my writing life adventures.

Until next time, happy reading!
