My father taught me to love books when I was just a child – and that lifelong passion includes writing them as well as reading them.
I started scribbling short stories (mostly about ponies) in my schoolbooks when I was very small. Those schoolgirl scribbles slowly developed into ‘proper’ writing, leading me into the best job a person could ever have – being a writer.
I love writing books about the Australian outback, and have been touched by the amazing response from readers to my Coorah Creek books.
The Wild One – the second book of the series was a finalist in the Award of Excellence organised by the Colorado Chapter of the Romance Writers of America. What a thrill it is to have that recognition.
Last year, the first book in the series, Flight To Coorah Creek won the Aspen Gold Readers’ Choice Award, presented by the Heart of Denver RWA. The book was also a finalist in the Romance Writers of Australia RUBY Awards – for Romantic Book of the Year and was nominated as Book of the Year in the AusRomToday Reader’s Choice Awards.
The third book in the series is now available. You are invited to spend Christmas at Coorah Creek – with Trish, Adam and Jess and all your old friends. There are some new friends to meet too.
There’s more you know – more books and more stories. While you’re here, please have a click around the site. There are musings on the blog, free short reads and all sorts of stuff here that I hope you will enjoy.
And do come back soon.

But I have tried some new authors and have found some great new writers … although this blog begins with an old favourite…. Continue reading
