I've coined 2013 as my 'Year of Wonders'. Five works of fiction published. Twelve months away from paid employment in pursuit of my dream job. I'm so fortunate to have had this opportunity and there are a truckload of people I want to thank, not least my readers, so I decided to record a thanks and bye bye video to commemorate what has been a corker of a year. It took me several attempts. The first one was nearly 8 minutes long.
There’s a few people in the world I wouldn’t want to be. Kevin Rudd, the nurse who sticks needles in babies at council immunisation sessions and Miley Cyrus.
For the past six months I’ve been working behind the scenes to make this website more reader friendly. I’ve made a few small changes to the look and feel of the site, as well as some improvements to content. If you have any comment or feedback about the functionality of the site please let me know here.
What will you find on the new site? Come take a mini tour with me...
Being an author isn't always about getting the words down, although that is the most important part. Once the words are down and out in the wild, people like to talk to you about them, particularly if the words in question are a bit controversial.
I've been fortunate to have a few opportunities to speak publically about The Yearning and the taboo relationship the novel explores. Perhaps its because I'm new at this, or maybe it's a product of different audiences, each time I stand up to speak in front of a group of fellow readers, the book reveals something new to me.
Apologies for my absence. I've been frantic the last couple of weeks with finishing a rough draft of my second novel, Saint, and attending the annual Romance Writers of Australia conference in Fremantle Perth.

You’d think after forty (ahem) years on this earth I’d know pretty much all there is to know about my own body, right? Wrong.
As an avid reader of sacred sexual texts like Tantra, Taoism and Karma Sutra, I thought I was pretty up (or down) with the multitudinous and fascinating functions of my lady bits. However, last night I was discovered information that should be a mandatory part of every person’s sexual education, be they female or male.
Why do we have sex? Because we want to satisfy our longing for our object of desire? Because we’re in lurv? Because we want to feel good? Ultimately, is it because we want to experience orgasm?
I reckon by now you’re probably nodding your head.
If, after last week’s post, you’re still undecided whether Edible Delights Vol 2 should find its way to your e-reader or not, this week’s Tasty Morsel might convince you.
Five authors, five very different stories. A treasury of romantic, sexy, food themed tales is what Edible Delights Volume 2 is about.
Excited, excited, excited.
Because today I’m celebrating my fourth publication for 2013! Yep, FOUR in my first year!
