Escape during Corona Virus with a romance

Just as I thought – a romance book can get us through the worst of things.

ABC News reported Romance fiction got us through the GFC and World War II. Here’s why it could help us during COVID-19 READ FULL STORY

I wasn’t sure whether to release Elephant Creek while all this was going on. After some thought, I realised I can help readers escape the boredom of their confinement. Want readers to leave their everyday problems through the pages of Elephant Creek. So, yes it was released on a very romantic day (my 31st wedding anniversary). I hope the story takes you on a suspenseful adventure, of fun, laughter, heat, heartache, happiness, loyalty, kindness and most of all – love!

Buy Elephant Creek and escape to Currumbin Valley where a child, dog and elephant will melt your heart and Emma and Noah’s love will have you fanning your face.

Steamy, sexy, romantic suspense set on the Gold Coast will intrigue and delight.

Emma Jarvis has a dilemma — keep dating rock-star handsome Wade or pursue her crush on sexy, silent, probably-married Noah?

Noah Cooper and his Down’s Syndrome daughter, Hope, are due for a fresh start. But a car accident propels Emma into their secretive world. Will Noah put his guard down long enough to let love back into his life?

Emma finds, convincing Noah of a police conspiracy is one thing. Avoiding combusting when she’s near him is a totally different predicament.

Noah has enough problems without falling for delightful, Emma and her lust-inducing cut-off shorts. His wife’s abandonment. Proving his father’s innocence. And Hope, beginning mainstream school where bullies lurk.

When Noah learns his dead brother’s, son, Jai is with Emma’s family, he must cut contact with Emma or lose what’s most precious to him.

But when Jai and Hope go missing can the adults unite to find the missing children in the Australian bush? Will an old circus elephant be the key to bonding them before it’s too late?

The sequel to The Zanzibar Moon brings all three books to a final enthralling, emotional conclusion in a stand-alone story filled with passion and heat.

Warning: the heat level is high on love and lust!

Storytime for the Grandkids – NanStory

My grandkids and daughter-in-law popped in to see me yesterday. I wondered if it would be the last time I saw them for a while because of a potential lockdown due to Covid-19. It got me thinking we would need to Facetime and call more often. I was also pondering how they would be homeschooled and the potential for boredom to set in.

I love books and I want them to enjoy them too. Books not only teach children, they entertain and delight. So, I thought I’ll record me reading to them. I know I’ll get better at it but here is the first episode of NanStory. Please share it if you want to give your kids or grandkids an extra storytime.

I’m not a fan of myself on camera but it was fun to do because it’s for kids. And, yes I am still writing adult content but I have a little children’s story in the pipeline too. Enjoy and please don’t laugh (oh, hang on, yes you can laugh when I say splash!) Ha, ha!
