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 connect via Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Instagram and Goodreads.

February Update:

How many of you are asking where January disappeared to? I know I am but to be fair I spent much of the month travelling. If you’re interested in my adventures, click on over to the blog and the This Writing Life photo essays of my trips to north Queensland and south-east South Australia. They’re full of facts and fun.

While you’re on the blog, take a look at regular series My Favourite Reads and Teaser Tuesday. The latter features not only teasers from my books but from guests as well, with giveaways popping up regularly. No one wants to miss out on those so make sure you bookmark the blog or, better still, subscribe and have the posts delivered direct to your inbox.

On the news front, I’m thrilled to announce that I’m an Australian Romance Reader Award finalist in 3 categories. Both Wayward Heart and Santa and the Saddler are finalists in the Favourite Contemporary Romance category, and I’m up for Favourite Australian Romance Author 2016. And something I’m particularly chuffed with, Wayward Heart is a finalist in the member’s choice category of Favourite Cover from a Romance Published in 2016. Rah!

Winners will be announced at the Awards Dinner, held at the Australian Romance Readers Convention in Melbourne on Saturday 25 February 2017. Tickets are still available to some ARRC events so please check the website for details. If you can’t make it, never fear. I intend to share lots of photos on the blog when I return.

I’m now properly knuckled down to Chrissy and the Burroughs Boy, which is a follow-on to Santa and the Saddler and another in the Levenham Love Story series. I’m also waiting on edits for my next full-length manuscript, a book I am RIDICULOUSLY excited about. I love this story like crazy and hope you will too. No title or release date yet but if you’d like to be the first to know, and have access to other exclusive content, news and freebies, please join my newsletter.

Until next time, happy reading!
