New Office to inspire the muse

Are you curious as to where I write?

Here’s a look at my new office. I still have a bit of arranging to do but it’s almost there. The perfect space to fit a desk, two laptops, trays, folders, stationery, bookshelf, filing cabinets, printer and of course – plenty of books (and pens) (oh, and notepads)!

My new office. I’m awaiting more of my books to fill the bookshelf.

Another advantage is when I turn around I have a water view – the pool. It’s tranquil and pretty to inspire my next book setting. Stay tuned for that.

Today I had a phone interview in the office (my first). I know it’s Easter Monday but when a journalist calls it’s back to author mode. The lovely Laura of Coolum News was interested in Elephant Creek and we had a nice chat about what inspired me to write it (the old circus elephants of Currumbin Valley, plus the other two books The Zanzibar Moon and Kendwa’s Secret), what I’m doing next (a children’s book and more adult fiction) and other stuff. I’ll post a copy when it’s out. If you live on the Sunshine Coast look out for it.

Surprisingly, because Laura called out of the blue I wasn’t nervous while she interviewed me. It was more like a chat with a friend. I’m sure it will result in a great article. Any publicity is good publicity, right!

I’m also going to be in Seniors news both national and local, so look out for that. Hopefully, I’m also making inroads with local bookstores. Readers are loving the new book and I’m getting genuinely lovely feedback and seeing posts on Facebook and Instagram. Thank you, dear readers.

No makeup (yes, I am out of my PJs) in my new office.

If you know a bookstore or specialist store (like a beach boutique) who may like to stock my book please tell them to email me at Thank you.

Feel free to ask me any questions about my writing process. ­čÖé xo

Hello Gorgeous Readers – are you ready?

Hi my gorgeous readers,

The latest newsletter has a fab new look. Are you ready to read about the upcoming release of Elephant Creek?

Here’s some of what you’ll read:

I have exciting news. Yes, the new book Elephant Creek is almost ready to send out Advance Review Copies to my editors and beta readers. Yay!

This means I will meet the deadline of March 25th for the release of Elephant Creek. It happens to be my anniversary too. Yep, I have my own love story (32 years of it in fact).

So, I’m introducing Noah Cooper. Okay, for those of you who’ve read The Zanzibar Moon and Kendwa’s Secret you may be thinking – what the – ?

In this stand-alone story of Noah and Emma I do conclude all things ‘Zanzibar Moon’ and here’s a secret – Noah Cooper is Kendwa’s brother (yep, Toby) and it’s complicated but it will all make sense when you read the book. I promise.

If you’d like to pre-order it would make my day and you’ll get a signed copy and new bookmark when they do. I may even have a competition.

Yours truly in love-stories, happiness and writing,


P.S. There will be more news about release dates, book launches and other events soon.



If you would like to be a beta reader I am looking for you.

I need people who love reading,┬ácan spot plot holes, errors, grammar and inconsistencies and will tell me. If you don’t find any that’s awesome (I hope you enjoyed the read) – please write a review to be included in my pre-release marketing and publicity. This means you will receive an Advance Review Copy of the paperback. (Limited numbers)┬áPlease email me to discuss.



Review copies will also be available for media.
