I know romance readers are spoilt for choice. There are many fabulous romance writers, both traditional and indie. How do you become a reader of someone you’ve never heard of? Possibly that author is me. Hello!

I’ve been freelance writing for thirty-plus years. My first novel, The Zanzibar Moon, was self-published in 2017. The next year Kendwa’s Secret (the prequel) was released, because readers wanted to know about Kendwa’s earlier life. How nice is that?

My third book Elephant Creek is the sequel to The Zanzibar Moon, but all stories are standalone. They’re full of adventure, sizzling romance, animals and children, and set in exotic places with characters you’ll fall in love with. Elephant Creek is in Currumbin on the Gold Coast, where two old circus elephants retired to a valley farm to live out their days.

I want to share my unique stories with readers. As one reader said, ‘… The author had a distinctly Australian voice which I loved … so many elements, so many complications. I found myself unable to stop reading. The pacing was terrific, and the plot was multifaceted, and every storyline was intriguing. Yes, this is a romance but it’s also a story about families and their loving complicated relationships …’ And another, ‘… I found myself thinking about the characters as if I knew them personally. I didn’t want the story to end. Can’t wait for your next book. If you love a romantic story mixed with adventure …’

My latest manuscript is finished, but this time I won’t be self-publishing. I’ll have exciting news about that in the coming months. So, join my mailing list and find out my secret first.

Elephant Creek

Emma Jarvis has a dilemma—keep dating rock-star handsome Wade or pursue her crush on sexy, silent, probably-married Noah?

Noah Cooper and his Down’s Syndrome daughter, Hope, are due for a fresh start. But a car accident propels Emma into their secretive world. Will Noah put his guard down long enough to let love back into his life?

Emma finds, convincing Noah of a police conspiracy is one thing. Avoiding combusting when she’s near him is a totally different predicament.

Noah has enough problems without falling for delightful, Emma and her lust-inducing cut-off shorts. His wife’s abandonment. Proving his father’s innocence. And Hope, beginning mainstream school where bullies lurk.

When Noah learns his dead brother’s, son, Jai is with Emma’s family, he must cut contact with Emma or lose what’s most precious to him.

But when Jai and Hope go missing can the adults unite to find the missing children in the Australian bush? Will an old circus elephant be the key to bonding them before it’s too late?
