Beautiful In Its Own Rugged Way

I grew up in wheatbelt territory in Western Australia.  It was flat countryside that, to me, was very boring.  Gum trees and spinifex, and tea trees everywhere.  The type of trees that grow in Western Australia are unique.  Show me a photo of a piece of countryside and I know it's Australia, because of the

Bad Boys Who Aren’t.

Yesterday's Legacy was officially released last Thursday and there's already some great reviews.  One of the trends I'm noticing in the reviews are lots of descriptors for the hero, Jonah: rebel a real bum a rebel, troublemaker, and someone who can't be trusted, a free thinker slacker doesn't quite seem to fit into society a

End of an Era…er…Series. :)

If you read the reviews on Amazon and elsewhere for Sabrina's Clan, which came out last Thursday, there is a lot of weeping and rending of garments because it is the last book in the series. I've also had some "interesting" email direct from readers demanding requesting I write more books in the series. This

My X Factor

On my newsletter*, recently, I explained why writing the second book in the Endurance series felt a lot like writing in a vacuum.

Uh-Oh…Now I’ve Done It.

I couldn't help myself.  I did it again. What, do you ask? I set a book in Canada.  In the Rockies.  Again. Can't help myself.  I have to break out every now and again and put in a bloody great rock or two as a backdrop. :) For those of you familiar with the Destiny's

Canada Day

So, hey!  Today is Canada Day.  This is the first Canada Day I've celebrated as a Canadian citizen, too. Since I was naturalized in December last year, I've been itching to put "Canadian" on an official form somewhere and a couple of weeks ago that opportunity finally arrived. Guess what the form was for. Renewing
