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

April Update:

How is autumn (or spring for northern hemisphere folk) faring for you? I’m having a lovely time, enjoying the cooler weather, working hard on another full-length rural romance, and dreaming up even more stories for you.

I’ll be sharing some exciting news soon, so if you want to be the first to hear, please sign up to my newsletter. Not only will you get access to special goodies like first chapter previews and giveaways, you’ll also receive a couple of exclusive short stories to read over a cuppa. Come join the cool crew today!

The book of my heart APRIL’S RAINBOW continues to go from strength to strength. My sincere thanks to everyone who has bought and read this book. I’m so proud to have shared Tristan’s and April’s story with you, and your feedback has been amazing and very appreciated.

In March I hosted a table at A Romantic High Tea and attended the Australian Romance Reader Awards dinner in Sydney. Both were wonderful – the Australian Romance Readers Association is such a great organisation and huge thanks to them for arranging these events. For all the photos, click here or on the blog tab above. And while you’re visiting the blog, check out my regular Teaser Tuesday and My Favourite Reads series, and This Writing Life posts. They’ll keep you entertained.

Until next time, happy reading!
