I am the author of the contemporary romance novels "Too Close" and "Ship to Shore", and of an occasional series of short stories themed around holidays, called "Holiday Romances".
With my third novel, "In Your Sights", I am breaking away from romances; this is suspenseful psychological thriller set in Sydney. "In Your Sights" will be available in early December 2014.
Most of my career was spent as an editor, but now I work as a print and digital graphic designer. An unexpected side-effect of leaving editing was the resurgence of an interest in writing.
I grew up in Canada and lived in London, England, for many years. I have now settled in Sydney, Australia. My interests include travel, tall ship sailing and cocktails - not necessarily in that order.
If you have read any of my work, I'd love to know what you thought of it.

From the beginning of Nicola and Greg's relationship there were coincidences. They bore a physical resemblance to one another. Nicola shared a tomato allergy with Greg's mother, Mona. Only after the couple became engaged did Nicola meet Mona. They, too, resemble each other physically. When Mona learns Nicola was adopted she begins to suspect Nicola might be the daughter she gave birth to and gave up thirty-six years ago. Too Close, the novel by Elizabeth Krall, is a story of the unimaginable. Is it possible that Greg and Nicola have the same mother? Nicola and Mona agree to have DNA testing. Emotions run high for everyone during the excruciating wait for the results. Ever present is the question of what happens if the test results show the couple is related?
This is a story about a sensitive issue and the author tells it with grace and dignity. The characters are realistic. Their emotions, reactions and fears are clearly presented. This is a powerful novel in that the reader can't help but wondering "What would I do if I found myself in a similar situation?" As for what happens with Nicola and Greg- you'll have to read the book and I do recommend reading this book.
I received this book for free through LibraryThing and I give this review of my own free will.
