What's the story behind your latest book?
When my husband joined the military and I found out we were moving to Darwin, I looked for contemporary novels to help me become familiar with our new lifestyle but I couldn't find any. I decided to write one myself.

Smashwords book reviews by Renee Conoulty

  • Fine-Tuning Hanna on Feb. 11, 2015

    A lovely little romance set between Ireland and Finland. I enjoyed learning a little about the Finnish and Irish lifestyle and I enjoyed the piano tuning references. The author wrote about what she knew, which came through well. I felt a little bombarded by all the personal development references, but they were relevant to the story. The story focussed on the two main characters, but there was also some character development of the minor characters. It wrapped everything up nicely and there were happily ever afters for everyone.

    Win or Dai trying An entertaining middle grade fiction book that kept me engaged. The informal first person narrative suited the book. I found the main character quirky and likeable. I was curious to see how everything worked out for him. The majority of the story was a paranormal mystery, with the bullying issue forming a strong subplot. It would be a good book to read aloud to a younger child to prompt a discussion about bullying.
