Welcome Annie to our spotlight …
Have you attended on of ARRA events before?
I attended the ARRA book signing at the RWA conference on the Gold Coast and was most impressed by the meticulous organisation of the event. It was a wonderful experience sitting with 64 other authors and also due to alphabetical serendipity I sat next to Alexandra Sokiloff!
What are you most looking forward to at ARRC2013?
ARRC2013 will be a great chance to catch up with readers and fellow authors. Writing can be a lonely occupation and to discuss your books with readers is an amazing experience.
Tell us about your latest book…
I am currently working on seven manuscripts—yes, seven! The two books to follow up Holiday Affair (Italian Affair and Outback Affair) are in the hands of my editor, as well as a sweet romance called Worth the Wait. I am also writing a paranormal romance called Surrender by the Sea and a single title called From the Ashes.
What do you have coming up next?
I am dipping my toe in the self-publishing pond later in the year with my steampunk sequel–Summer of the Moon Flower. This story is full of my favourite things and places. Vienna and a Scottish Island… as well as a hunky Scottish laird, the secondary characters I love to put in my stories and of course all the great steampunk contraptions I love inventing. This book is also packed with many historical surprises!
