Californian Cowboys Series (Romancing the Californian Cowboys)
The Romancing the Californian Cowboys series is set primarily in California’s gold country. Discovering Gold, Striking Gold, and now Uncovering Gold. eBooks are available, only on Amazon.
This series, set in a small town at the base of the Sierra Nevada Mountain Range in California, is about three Australian sisters who inherit property in an old mining town, and the cowboys who didn’t see them coming. The area, well know for the discovery of gold that led to the gold rush of 1849, was the destination for many Australians who headed across the pacific to find their fortune.
Each book is the story of one of the sisters, and can be read as a standalone, but it will be more fun to read them in order if you are planning to read more than one book.
Rural Romance Series (Copperhead Creek Australian Romance)
The Copperhead Creek Australian Romance series — Contemporary Small Town Romance
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.
The 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”.
At the moment, all books in my vampire/ghost trilogy, Absent Shadows, are only 99 US pennies each and are FREE to read with Kindle Unlimited.
