The Official 100.

_HealthyMond . I think I might get used to this.   Monday's Facebook Live session (here and here on YouTube, too, or just click on the embedded video, below) was not nearly the same stress-inducing, get-me-out-of-here experience as the first week.  I actually managed to relax a bit. One of the questions I failed

The Good Story, the Bad Story and My Story – Revisited.

I first posted this in November 2015, but there has been some changes since then!  Notes on the way through... There were two major influences that drove me as I wrote Heart of Vengeance, one of them positive, the other horribly negative…but I’ll get to that one in a minute. The positive one was an

Names Again

It seems I have shot myself in the foot again. It only seems that way, because I’ve been bitten by time. You’d think, given my time-travel novels, I’d know better. However. In April 2016 I released a post, “By Any Other Name…? No, I Don’t Think So”, where I confessed my shock and surprise at

…and Science Fiction Romance is Back On the Table (Among Other Genres).

In the last few weeks I have been holding a discussion with my readers via the newsletter, about what they want to read. The discussion was sparked by Street Team members telling me I was wrong to stop writing Science Fiction Romance. That gave me pause, because my Street Team are a microcosm of my

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. I was almost in the same boat writing Promissory Note, but by then, I had committed myself to this series, so I sailed ahead without too much concern. Promissory Note has confirmed

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
