Thanks for coming by to read about my books and about me.

It's hard to believe this page - and my books – have the capacity to reach so many. I sit in my Ballarat home in Australia's Southern Central Highlands, and I feel like my world expands about as far as the birdbath under my window. But just like the birds glaring into my window when I forget to fill my birdbath, my words leave here and take off on a life of their own. They find their way to Cambridge, Kansas, Prague, Denpasar, Calcutta... all over the world. You write to me and I gain as much pleasure as when a migrating bird lands on my window-sill. Okay, maybe even more.

Your generosity in sharing your enjoyment of my books keeps my butt in this chair, writing more and keeping an eye on the level of the birdbath. My birds thank you and so do I.


— Closing in on One Hundred —

I've written it! Waves of Temptation is due out at the end of February and is indeed my hundredth romance I've written for Harlequin Mills and Boon. For my hundredth book I've gone back to the things I love most. It has a medical setting because that echoes my first book and I love the drama of the medical world. I've set it on the Australian coast because that's where I'm happiest, and I've mixed in medicine, surfing and passion. A hundred and still going strong... People ask me when I'll stop. I tell them when romance is dead. Long live romance.

— Surf and Snow —

December, 2013
My Christmas book, Christmas at the Castle is set in Scotland in December. Snow, Ice, a proper Christmas. But here in Australia it's summer and I’m out in the water playing with my zoomy little kayak, Zippy. Angus is my Scottish Laird. He’s gorgeous, especially when he’s wearing his kilt. I wonder how one would look in a kayak? Probably a lot sexier than me in what I'm wearing :-)

— Travel —

This year, to celebrate the publication of my 100th novel, my husband and I are heading to the other side of the world. We'll be travelling for two months and the planning and excitement have already started. We've never been to Ireland, to Scotland, to Italy, to Greece... Can we do justice to four countries in two months? Knowing how much of Australia we haven't yet seen, I know we can't. What we'll probably do is find the first beautiful seaside town and prop. Any suggestions as to where? Watch this space to see where we end up.
