The Falls - Out Now!
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.
Last month was a very busy time. It was THE FALLS first month in the stores, and I had lots of promo scheduled, including this laughter-filled interview with those good book-loving people at Dymocks. Feedback on THE FALLS has been wonderful and I’d like to thank everyone who has left a review, emailed or commented on social media. You’re all lovely.
May was also an emotional time for my family. A few days before Mother’s Day, my mum, who has Alzheimer’s Disease, was placed into full-time care. I can’t express how truly horrible this disease is, and I know many others have been or are going through what my family has. I posted this piece on Mum’s battle with the disease and how it affected us on the blog, and the feedback was phenomenal. My sincere thanks to everyone who offered support and thoughts, and shared your own experiences. It was incredibly heart-warming and meant a great deal.
Although I didn’t much chance to write when I was home in Mount Gambier, it did give me the opportunity to do some on-location research for Racing Hearts, or Racey as I’ve nicknamed it (we’re still with the joke working title, sigh). I had a wonderful stay in Dunkeld, the setting for Racey, even if it was a bit arctic. With the glorious peak of Mount Sturgeon overlooking the town and the Grampians backdrop it’s a stunning setting. Perfect for a bit of rural romance!
The Blog has seen some fabulous Australian authors hosted on Friday Feast, with plenty of delicious recipes, book recommendations and giveaways. If you don’t want to any posts, you can easily sign up to receive them straight to your inbox. You’ll find the form on the side panel of the blog page below my book covers.
I’ll be sending out a newsletter soon with all the latest news plus something special for subscribers. If you’d like to join in the fun, simply click the Newsletter tab or fill in the form on the slider widget when it appears. Subscribers have access to exclusive content, giveaways and more. There’s also a free short story for you to enjoy over a cuppa.
Until next time, happy reading!
