Seeing Off September

Well, I’d like to say it’s been a week, but really... it’s been a month. It’s been a few months. I know all you fellow Melbournians feel me, here. Anyway, in the spirit of sharing being caring, I thought I’d put in a (surprisingly pictorial) wrap of the end of September, 2020. Because... well, why… Continue reading Seeing Off September

Spicing Things Up

I like a challenge. Particularly one that will help me hone my skills as an author, and force me to try things I might not otherwise consider. For me, the biggest challenge I face in my writing is length. (Heh, heh.) Keeping a novel under 150,000 words is a constant mix of tiptoeing, editing and… Continue reading Spicing Things Up

Watching The World Go By

Happy Sunday morning from chilly Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. Or maybe we’re in Antarctica? It’s certainly been cold enough for that recently. I’m typing this in my pyjamas, with a hot cup of tea in a thermos, trying to ignore the zombie-apocalypse climate so that I can hopefully string a few words together. Tomorrow the kids… Continue reading Watching The World Go By

Chilling with Renee Dahlia

Today, I’m over on Renee Dahlia’s blog doing a fun little interview about the birth of Sorcery and Sandstorms, what makes me tick, and why ice cream should never go in a piñata. Hanging out with cool author peeps (virtually and in person) is an amazing side effect of being an author and one that,… Continue reading Chilling with Renee Dahlia

My Fingers Are Blue

Those were Orion’s first words this morning, when I opened his door at 6.30am to find him sitting up in bed, light on, book in hand, looking irritatingly perky. “My fingers are blue.” Yeah, well, it’s something crazy like 3 degrees outside, kid. I’m not surprised. At this stage in Orion’s life, I’ve started to… Continue reading My Fingers Are Blue

Caelum’s Bookshelf – May / June 2020

So, I snuck into Caelum’s room while our favourite space deer was asleep, and got the low-down on some new books that are coming out in the next month or so. Some of these are written by authors I know, and some are books I’ve been waiting to get my hands on. Have a look,… Continue reading Caelum’s Bookshelf – May / June 2020

Taking A Breath

My alarm went off at 6.30am. At least, I think it did, because one talent I’ve developed during the Covid-19 lockdown has been the superhuman ability to turn my alarm off without actually waking up. By pure luck, in my zombie fumbling, I managed to push the sleeve of my pyjama top almost all the… Continue reading Taking A Breath

What can you do? What can I do?

With coronavirus hanging around us like the proverbial bad smell, many of us are staying indoors. (Me included.) With that in mind, it’s the perfect time to read! With this in mind, I’ll be offering book one in both my series’ for $1.99AUD on Amazon. This discount will be in place for the foreseeable future… Continue reading What can you do? What can I do?

ARR2020 Wrap-Up

Last weekend, I was fortunate enough to attend A Romantic Rendezvous, an author signing run by the Australian Romance Reader’s Association. I’ve been in the past as a reader, but this was the first time I’d had an opportunity to be on the author’s side of the desk. In this uncertain time, with the very… Continue reading ARR2020 Wrap-Up

Hitting the Ground Running

Right, last week I promised a chatty post about my writerly plans for the year, so here we go! I'm super pumped about Tobias' Spark coming out in February, then hitting the ARRA rendezvous in March. If you keep an eye on my social media in the coming weeks, you'll see some of the fun… Continue reading Hitting the Ground Running
