Winter is here … at least it is in Australia!

So, here it is a dreary winter’s day and I realised I haven’t visited my website for a while.

I’m in the process of editing my first series, Absent Shadows, which is a vampire/ghost story set in Melbourne’s Flagstaff Gardens and Queen Victoria Market, and hope to commence work on a fourth book for that series soon.

Until then, I will have nothing new — but remember, all my books are FREE to read with a Kindle Unlimited subscription, and vary between just $0.99 – $4.99 to buy. You can find all my books on my author page on Amazon.

I look forward to bringing you news of the newly edited series soon, followed by a new book in that series, perhaps early next year.

But it bye for now, and stay warm if you are in Australia, or enjoy summer for those of you in the Northern Hemisphere. 🌨💨🌧 vs ☀️🌤⛅️

We are back in lockdown here in Victoria

So I’m busy finishing Taylor’s story, which is book 3 in the Romancing the Californian Cowboys series.

After that, I’m going back to the ex-cop from Murder at the Creek to write a “Seasoned Romance/Romantic Suspense” story. But come on, you all know what that means … someone is gonna die! And someone is going to have to solve the mystery.

A Chance for Snow has been awarded a coveted indieBRAG medallion!

Have I told you about indieBRAG? Brag stands for Book Readers Appreciation Group – and indieBRAG is a group that reviews indie books and awards medallions to those books that meet the high standards of the traditional publishing industry.

I’m fortunate to have now received my fifth medallion, and will be submitting another book to them soon.


Be sure to check out the books on offer there if you’re looking for quality indie books. You can visit them here.

indieBRAG – Book Readers Appreciation Group

There’s another group I’m proud to be part of, and it too is all about indies. indieBRAG is an acronym for Book Readers Appreciation Group – where readers get to experience all kinds of books written by indie authors – some that don’t fit into your normal genre categories.

But one thing you can be sure of is that all books in the catalogue have been read to ensure they meet the indieBRAG standards of quality and content before being awarded the coveted indieBRAG medallion.

So if you’re looking for something new & different, and would like to give an indie author a go, here’s a great place to start. Just keep in mind that these aren’t necessarily “Clean Reads” so you’ll need to keep that in mind as you peruse the catalogue.


Have a look at all the wonderful books in the catalogue, including mine! You can join the newsletter, or simply browse the books and make a selection – just click the blue link. indieBRAG


Happy reading.


Live, one minute book reviews on YouTube? Yeah, baby!!

Wow! My favourite book group is on YouTube and I forgot to mention it earlier!! They do live one minute reviews of some of their favourite Clean Indie Reads books.

You’ve gotta watch at least one, if only to see the hilariously clever Lia in action. They’re great reviews and I guarantee you’ll get a bit of a laugh. Lia’s humour and antics are sure to brighten your day. Go on … check it out … you know you want to.

Christmas is nearly upon us and gift giving is on my mind

For a limited time, my Christmas story, A Chance for Snow, is only 99cents (US) and the books in my vampire/ghost trilogy, Absent Shadows are each free for a few days in December. You can check them out on my books  page.

But something else I’d like to share with you is a product that is available all year round, and makes wonderfully special gifts. They’re called “Envirowoollys” and they’re made by a textile mill in Glenorchy, Tasmania, using knitted woollen offcuts. Making these gorgeous critters provides additional jobs and training opportunities in addition to producing a sustainable and environmentally friendly product. You can read their story on their website here. It’s a fantastic initiative and I hope it really takes off for them.

I bought the Tasmanian Devil for a friend … wish I’d bought more!
