A woman scarred by injuries that will never heal … a man who’s not planning to have his heart broken twice … and an old mining town that brings them together.

When washed-up Australian tennis player Alex Mason unexpectedly inherits half of an old mining town in California, her dream of becoming a children’s tennis coach comes within reach. However, when she travels to California to visit the town, she begins to think there may be more to it than the dollar value of its real estate.

There are two types of people Travis Gold has learned to mistrust; athletes, like his cheating ex-wife, and Masons, the family who started a feud by taking his family’s saloon in a drunken poker game. Exhausted by his past, he’s ready to move on—until Alex Mason’s arrival in town opens every old wound.

Sparks fly when the descendants of the town’s founders meet, but at first it’s for all the wrong reasons. Can they both stop letting the past define them in time to discover the real gold in the old mining town?

The Copperhead Creek Australian Romance series is set in Victoria’s Golden Triangle, home of Australia’s 1850s Gold Rush. While the town in the series, Willows, is fictitious it was inspired by small towns that are scattered throughout Victoria and South Australia. Most have a Main Street or, as in Willows’ case a High Street, with at least one large pub, a beautiful Town Hall, perhaps an honourable war memorial, a news agency, and of course a fish & chips shop.

My fictitious town has a creek running past the edge of town, Copperhead Creek, and many scenes take place along horse riding tracks and trails that follow the Creek. Many of these scenes were inspired by the places I ride my own horse.

One thing that sets my stories apart from many others in the genre is that none of the books have any graphic sex or violence, and they contain minimal foul language, making them perfect for those of you who prefer to keep things a bit on the sweet/clean side.

YA Paranormal Romance Series

Absent Shadows trilogy  – Available on Amazon

My other series (trilogy) is Absent Shadows, a vampire/ghost story. Again, this story has no graphic sex or violence, and contains mild language.

IMG_0677The heroine of the story is a 19 year-old woman, Lili, who travels to Australia for a short break over her California summer, so it is set in Melbourne’s winter. Most of the action takes place in and around Melbourne’s Queen Victoria Market, an area rich in history. Lili’s favourite place to run is the Flagstaff Gardens which was the location of Melbourne’s original “burial hill” and she soon learns that the market’s car park was the Old Melbourne Cemetery where it is thought that there are still some 9,000 bodies that were never exhumed. Needless to say, the area makes the perfect setting for a story about ghosts and vampires!

If you’re interested in the history of the area, the internet has lots of information. A great place to start is here “onlymelbourne”.
