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

May Update:

What a month! I’ve been enjoying a great writing time, and am zooming to the end of my work-in-progress. I’m at that exciting, obsessive stage where the story and characters are all I think about. I love that so much. My goal is to get the first draft finished by mid-June which will leave me free to knuckle down to edits for my next release and make that book wonderful for you.

What are you doing in August? If you’re in Adelaide then don’t miss the Australian Romance Readers Association booksigning event 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. Keep an eye on the ARRA blog for more details.

Want to be the first to hear about my next release? 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!

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!
