It’s International Chocolate Day!

It's International Chocolate Day! I have a thing about chocolate. I have such a thing about chocolate that I have written it into my bio which appears inside every book I release. I am not the only romance writer who has a passion for chocolate. When the erotic romance publisher, Ellora's Cave, was still in

On’yer Mate! – Aussie Rules is 161 Years Old Today

The game was developed for adult players, with

Sexist Vintage Ads!

Vintage Ads So Sexist, They're Offensive   The UK newspaper, The Telegraph, has a series of vintage advertisements that will take your breath away with their crude sexism. I look at them and think "but this was considered normal back then!" Holy cow, have we come a long way since.  There's still light years to go,

Today is Anzac Day

North Beach, Gallipoli Peninsular; Turkey. The point at which Australian Troops first landed at Gallipoli and traditionally the focus for Australian Dawn services. It must be because I grew up hearing the stories about what Australian and New Zealand troops achieved (and died achieving) during the First and Second World Wars, that Anzac

Admins Unite!

  Throughout the years I was working a day job while writing on the side, I was always an admin assistant.  When I first started working, straight out of high school, I was a "female clerk".  (Oh, how times have changed!) So, as I do every couple of years or so, I'm pausing to acknowledge

The Heroine Who Wouldn’t Behave Herself

The Heroine Who Wouldn't Behave Herself If you watched last Monday's Facebook Live, you'll know that this week's discussion is one I've put off for a couple of weeks: Military Careers When Soldiers Wore Swords. We love to adore the red-coated soldiers parading through our historical romances -- just think of Rupert Friend in Pride &
