Welcome to my corner of the country
Do you have a favourite season? It’s Spring here now, although in Victoria (where we’ve been almost nine months) it is perhaps not the kind of spring weather I’m used to—snow is not something that falls in September in Coffs Harbour! But that’s the life of a nomadic novelist.
The chilly days are, however, great weather for writing so I’ve been working on a brand new story as well as editing A Place To Remember (my April release). Although this will be my fifth novel, getting to work with a new publishing house (The UK’s Independant Publisher of the Year) which includes working with the wonderful Rosie De Courcy (the London editor who first discovered Maeve Binchy went on to be her editor for 23 years) is giving me that fabulous ‘first book’ feeling all over again. Knowing this novel will have a world-wide release in April is a dream come true, so do sign up to my New Book News (see below) and I can share the exciting bits with you.
Right now, my UK publisher (Head of Zeus) is sending me cover design concepts for comment and I cannot wait to reveal the final result.
There’s also a video I’ll be posting soon. In it I’m talking about A Place To Remember — why it’s such a special story for me and a sneak peak at my inspriation for the story.
My last release, The Other Side of the Season, is still garnering some amazing reviews (as are all my seasons books, so thank you if you’ve posted one on Goodreads or another book platform). I took a risk creating Tilly ( a character some readers have found ‘challenging’) but, I promise she does redeem herself – and you’ll never guess how!
Thank you all for your continuing support and encouragement. Your feedback (reviews/emails) are appreciated.
Are you visitig my corner of the country for the first time? If so, thank you for dropping by. Stick around and visit my BOOK ROOM to learn more about my novels, go to my BLOG ROOM to meet author friends and follow my nomadic life, or to learn more about me, pop into the PRESS ROOM. I love connecting with readers and often you will find me using those time wasting writing tools called Facebook and Twitter! Come join me, or scroll down to sign up for my New Book News.
And a special note to any travellers out there! If you are on my website because you are camped in the same caravan park as me right now, the answer is: ‘yes, I do have books on board’. Click here.
Speaking of favourite seasons…

It’s time to take control of your information.
Don’t leave it to Facebook (and the like) to decide what news you see and when you see it. I have book news coming soon and if, like me, you distrust social media’s filtering of information, join my New Book News and I will email you my news direct to your inbox. Leave your email (which I’ll protect with my life) and I’ll send you a reminder or special book proces. This is NOT a monthly newsletter full of stuff you probably don’t want to know. I only send New Book News or when books go on sale online – and who doesn’t love a bargain book?
