No stranger to embracing a second chance or trying something different, I took my first tentative steps towards a tree change in 2004, escaping Sydney’s corporate chaos to buy a small cafe in the seaside town of Sawtell.
Moving to the country was like coming home.
After ten years running a B&B on my NSW property I now write contemporary Australian fiction – life-affirming novels of small town life and the country roots that run deep. And I’m doing it grey nomad style – a wandering writer of no fixed address. Yep! I’ve hit the road in a Ford and a fifth wheeler. (Check out my blog post on that.)
With readers and reviewers alike having enthusiastically received all four novels, my debut, House for all Seasons, was #5 Top Selling Debut Novel (2013). My other titles include: Simmering Season, Season of Shadow and Light, The Other Side of the Season.
Small town stories from the country to the coast.
