Life’s like that…

Life’s a funny old thing. Just when you think you can sit back, relax and enjoy the ride those pesky little Fates tweak the threads of the fabric and suddenly everything changes. Clotho, the Fate responsible for spinning the threads, is clearly meddling with me at the moment. Over the last twelve months I’ve had Continue reading

A Romance Book Haven

I’m out and about at Romance Book Haven today sharing some of my favourite questions from the Get Reading Tour. And since I’m still celebrating Burning Lies making it onto the RUBY shortlist and the Daphne du Maurier shortlist there’s a copy to be won. You can always give it away as a present if Continue reading

Phew what a day!

Celebrations! According to my dentist I have the teeth of an 18 year old. Shame my knees are more like 60… But hey, it was a wonderful day all round! I’m absolutely delighted that BURNING LIES has been shortlisted for the 2013 Romantic Book of the Year. This was a book without a home for Continue reading

Many of our neighbours have already cast off. April also marks the beginning of the cruising season in Queensland Continue reading

Farewells and new beginnings

It’s my last night in our house. It feels empty and a little sad without GW and Zeus. I knew I’d have mixed emotions when the time came to pack everything up, downsize and move onto a boat. Good to see I haven’t disappointed myself…. It’s not that I don’t want to turn into a Continue reading

And still the world turns

It was another glorious sunrise this morning and the first one in a few days I’ve been able to appreciate. I felt a twinge of sadness as it faded into the ordinary light of day. I know I’ll never see another quite the same. The golden intense light rippling over dark and troubled water will Continue reading

Join me for the QWC Year of the Novel 2012

I’m a bit of a sucker for writing courses and workshops. I love the feel good glow as I’m blinded by the multitude of light bulbs going off in my mind. I love the inspiration that floods through me – even when it leaves me incapable of putting words on the page for several weeks. Continue reading
