Award winning outback romance
Thank you to everyone who has supported Wedding Bells By The Creek and taken it to Number One. Almost as much cause for celebration as the wedding itself.

I Meet a Big Green French Woman

There’s something about cities with a harbour – we are always drawn to the water. New York’s harbour has a couple of things worth visiting – first and foremost of course is that statue.

There she is

There she is

 You approach via ferry. The ferry takes a swing around the island and docks on the far side – almost as if specifically designed to give us all a great photo op.

It’s hard to understand how big she is without seeing her up close.

She’s big!

I mean really big.  Continue reading

The things you find…

I’ve started packing for the move to NYC – it’s a slow process, mostly because I keep finding things I want to read, or look at or play with rather than put into a box.

The Sungshin Mirror

The Sungshin Mirror

Yesterday, while sorting through some bookshelves (there are a lot of bookshelves in my house) I found a copy of the Sungshin Mirror from 1995.

The Mirror is the magazine of the Sungshin Women’s University in Seoul, South Korea and in their Spring issue in 1995, they ran an article by a visiting Australian computer consultant. Continue reading

A New Challenge

I was at the US Embassy last week.

We queued (in the rain) for about 15 minutes then assured the security men we were not carrying mobile phones, electronic car keys, cameras or anything else even vaguely threatening… and made it through to the visa section.

What an interesting place. Continue reading

Why Do We Do It?

With friend and fellow author Tania Crosse

With friend and fellow author Tania Crosse

I did a book signing yesterday in Reading with my friend Tania Crosse – who writes fabulous historical novels.

I really enjoyed the day – and loved meeting the people who came along.

In between signing books, I started thinking…

As authors, we do bookshop signings to promote our work. To put our books in front of people who might buy them. But it’s not just about the money. I don’t believe a story has really come to life until it’s been read by someone. The more people who read it – the more life that story has. Continue reading

Better Than a Shoe Blog…

I know I promised a shoe blog – but you’re not going to get one…

This is better.

We did it!

We did it!

It’s time to come clean.

More Than Just the Music

I spent last weekend at Glastonbury festival… and it didn’t rain!!!! Yea!!

The music was just great – but the Glasto fun doesn’t stop there… particularly not for an imaginative romance writer…

I was impressed

I was impressed

 

I spent a day in the circus fields… what fun that was. Thanks to all the performers who took the time to talk to me.

It was all book research of course… why else would a girl want to spend her time watching incredibly fit and muscular performers do the most amazing things…. Continue reading
