Last year I completed a fabulous journey through the Australian Outback and across the coast of our Far North Kimberley Region. Of course my imagination came with me - producing two sisters, a dog in hiding, an outback train, a cruise ship to die for - and of course two fabulous heroes. Her Outback Rescuer and A Bride for the Maverick Millionaire are my travel diary - sort of :-)
I'm also proud to announce that I've been nominated for the 2012 Australian Romance Writers Romance of the Year Award.
I've been nominated for three really cool awards this year, the RITA for Christmas with Her Boss, the R♥BY, for Cinderella: Hired By The Prince and Booksellers' Best for Christmas with Her Boss. I'd adore to be going to New York for the Rita and Booksellers Best awards, but instead I'll be researching my new series by travelling on the Ghan Railway through Outback Australia, and then cruising the northern tip, seeing parts of Australia only accessible by sea. I guess I won't need an evening gown where I'm going.

Welcome to the world of Sydney Harbor Hospital (or SHH…for short—because secrets never stay hidden for long!)
To nurse Lily Ellis, Sydney seems the perfect refuge from her mother's scandalous reputation. Far from fading into the background, on her first day at Sydney Harbor Hospital she's discovered in a compromising clinch with brooding plastic surgeon Luke Williams! To protect Lily from gossip, they fake a relationship—only neither's sure where fiction ends and fact begins.…
Extract from Dusty's diary, age 10
I've never had a proper family Christmas. It's always just been me and my mum, Jess. But now I've met my cool uncle Ben. He's a doctor, just like my mum. I didn't know him until recently, but now I'm starting to know what it's like to have a dad around. Uncle Ben makes mum smile, and I even caught them kissing, but when I told her she blushed!
As soon as Christmas is over, we're going home. But if I'm a really good boy, maybe Uncle Ben might want to come back, too?
During a raging thunderstorm, the last person Mardie expects to see on her doorstep is Blake! Fifteen years ago he walked away, leaving her shattered. But she can’t turn him away tonight – not with an injured border collie in his arms. Yet, having walked away once, can Blake convince Mardie that now he’s looking for a reason to stay?
