As a teenager, I had dreams of becoming a singer/songwriter, so my first stories were in songs. When I realized I was never going to write a number one hit, I turned my attention to writing novels. But working and raising a family took up a great deal of my time. In 2009, I decided to treat my writing as a day job and in 2012 "In Safe Hands" won the Romance Writers of America Silicon Valley Gotcha Contest, The Romance Writers of America Smoky Mountains Laurie Award and the Romance Writer's of America East Texas Southern Heat Contest for Romantic Suspense. It also picked up a commended in the Romance Writers of New Zealand Clendon Award as well as five top five placings in other contests in Australia and America.
In 2012 "In Safe Hands" was chosen as one of the titles to launch Escape Publishing, Harlequin Enterprises digital first imprint in Australia.
My second novel "In Safe Arms" was released on January 1, 2014, also with Escape Publishing.A companion novel to "In Safe Hands" it can be read as part of the series or as a standalone. Likewise, 'In Safe Keeping' released on December 8, 2014 can be read as book # 3 of the series or as a standalone.
'A Dangerous Arrangement', book #1 in my brand new romantic suspense series was released in June, 2015 and Shadows of the Heart, my first small town romance was released in August, 2015.
My novels are sexy, sophisticated and fast paced and very contemporary. I do my best to make sure my story lines are relevant to the modern day, something that could happen to any one of us.
I live on Australia's eastern seaboard, love music with a passion, and play the alto saxophone for fun.
