I love creating stories about gorgeous, sexy heroes and the passionate young women who captivate and intrigue them.
Thanks for visiting my website.
What’s happening in my world?
We all have to power to turn our dreams into reality. Each year I write down my goals, and at the end of the year it always surprises me what I have achieved. Since winning the RWA Emerald in 2014, for Best Unpublished Manuscript, I’ve released five books. This amounts to thousands of hours of work. It’s a good thing I like what I do.
In 2015 my good friend and critique partner, S.E Gilchrist asked if I’d like to write a rural romance set in the fictional town of Bindarra Creek. Her unique idea expanded and we ended up with 13 Authors coming on board. We all wrote our own book using a database of characters from this warm hearted but struggling community. S.E Gilchrist’s book ‘A Bindarra Creek Makeover' was the first release in July 2015. Each book was then released a month apart. It was a great venture and built fantastic camaraderie between all the writers. My book is titled, ‘Tempting Fate’ which was book eight and came out in February 2016. The series is doing very well and may lead to a similar venture in the future.
Also in 2015 I published ‘The Kalista Diamond’ and ‘Precious Gems’, the first two books of my romantic suspense series. Jarred Steele owns Steele Intelligence and Personal Security Services. His team is made up of six ex-SAS soldiers, who use their specialized skills to hunt down criminals, uncover drug and smuggling rings, and protect people at risk. The third book in this series is ‘Jewel of the Kimberley’ set in Western Australia, and will come out in July this year.
Another thing that’s kept me busy is the research that goes into writing my books. Flying a helicopter has been on my bucket list since I was seventeen. I finally achieved this dream as part of my research for ‘Jewel of the Kimberley.’ I’ve also had a personalized tour of a coal ship for this same story and I have a Sea Hawk pilot helping me with my chopper scenes. As an author, I meet so many interesting people and get to experience so much. I love it.
As for the rest of 2016, I’m joining the other Bindarra Creek writers on our Author Talks about the series. I plan to attend the Hunter Romance Writer’s group meeting every month, work in my garden, write the fourth book of my suspense series, attend the RWA conference in Adelaide, enjoy family time, have a holiday with my husband, and plot another suspense.
I’ve got lots of dreams, now to achieve them.
