Silly Wayward Heart gif


I am so, so chuffed right now. Not only is it my birthday but I’m an Australian Romance Reader Award finalist in 3 categories. THREE! How cool is that?

Both SANTA AND THE SADDLER and WAYWARD HEART are finalists in the Favourite Contemporary Romance category, and I’m up for Favourite Australian Romance Author 2016.

And something I’m particularly thrilled with, WAYWARD HEART is a finalist in the member’s choice category of Favourite Cover from a Romance Published in 2016.

I love that cover and it’s such a delight to know others do too. Have you read the interview with actress and model Kate Swan about the photo shoot for it? That’s great fun.

Check out all the finalists on the ARRA blog.  As you’ll see, I’m in amaaaaaazing company.

Winners will be announced at the Awards Dinner, held at the Australian Romance Readers Convention in Melbourne on Saturday 25 February 2017. If you’re in town, why not join us? It’ll be a blast!

      Glad you liked it, Fiona! I’d love to lay claim to the giffy cleverness but that’s all thanks to Google’s photo app thing. It has an assistant that automatically creates gifs out of related photos. I don’t even have to think!

      Thanks so much for the ARR Award congrats. I’m really chuffed.

      And happy New Year!!
