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.

February Update:

Ah, February. The time of year when we Australians knuckle down to work properly after our summers of fun. This is also the month when the book of my heart, April’s Rainbow, finally hit shelves. I’m thrilled to announce that it’s already experienced a moment at #1 in its category, which was very cool.

In other wonderful news, the Australian Romance Reader Awards finalists have been revealed and I’m thrilled to be listed in two categories: Favourite Australian Romance Author 2015 and Favourite Cover From A Romance Published In 2015 with Summer and the Groomsman. Winners will be announced at the Australian Romance Reader Awards dinner, Cello’s Restaurant, Sydney on Saturday 19th March. I’m also looking forward to enjoying A Romantic High Tea with readers on the same day. My table is booked out, but if you hurry you might be able to grab a seat at another.

January saw me start work on a new novel and it’s been kicking along nicely. The working title is Quarry Road but I’m pretty sure that will be changing. I adore this story. The hero and heroine have very different views on life, leading to lots of sparks between them, but they’ll have to leap some pretty major emotional hurdles before they can succumb to their feelings. It’s going to be hugely satisfying bringing them together.

I’ve also been mucking around with a Christmas themed short story/novella called Santa and the Saddler. This one is sweet and cute, and all going well I’ll have that ready for Christmas for you. Curious (and impatient!) types will find an early, unedited snippet on Teaser Tuesday.

The blog has had some fun features, including 6 Secret Things About April’s Rainbow, good news and special offer announcements, along with our regular Teaser Tuesday posts. Sadly, a perfect storm of computer glitches led to me losing nearly three months worth of recent blog posts, so I apologise if you’ve been looking for those. New systems are in place to prevent this happening again.

Remember, if you want to get all the news first, plus have access to special goodies like first chapter previews, exclusive subscriber-only short stories, giveaways and more, please sign up to my newsletter.

Until next time, happy reading!
