Chris grew up on a cattle, wheat and sheep property in the Australian Outback, providing plenty of inspiration for An Outback Chance.
Time away at university was followed by a number of years working as a journalist and photographer on regional and rural newspapers - covering stories on everything from rogue crocodiles to military aircraft.
A two year stint living and working in London was followed by a return to Australia, where Chris now lives while working on her next novel.
Min Clearwater is both cursed and blessed by the Min Min - the ghost light of the Australian Outback.
Following her namesake as it dances across the countryside Min only touches the ground where she lands, never making friends or commitments and leaving only a garden to show she was once there.
Sally Bailey wishes her mother's ghost would quit trying to be helpful.
It’s bad enough she’s had to leave London and move to the Australian outback.
Why should she have to deal with over-enthusiastic ghosts wanting her to make friends with the man she dumped at the altar 20 years ago?
And just what is her ex-fiancé Connor Land going to do when he finds out Sally's back in town?
