* Ballgowns or plain dresses? That’s a hard one. I love my 50s inspired styled dresses so I’ll go plain, or rather, day dresses :)

* My favourite place to write: is at my favourite café. They make the best quinoa salad and also, their coffees hit the spot. They know I’m a writer and let me sit in my favourite seat for hours!

* Hot and humid works for me. I love sunshine and really don’t like the cold.

* One book everyone should read – I can’t pick one because we all have our favourites and also enjoy different sub-genres. I’m an advocate for reading what you love :)

* What’s next for me – I’m launching Hannah’s story, Forever Mine, in April 2017. "It’s never a good idea to fall for your best friend’s brother or so they say." We met Hannah in Together At Last, she’s Amielle’s BFF and has had a long standing crush on Amielle’s brother, Zac. She’s had enough of pinning over a bloke who only sees her as his little sister’s friend and decides to move on. But then circumstances have Hannah and Zac spending one weekend together and a night of fun leads to more than just emotional consequences. I loved writing this book, Hannah is so much fun and the perfect gal to bring out the best in Zac!

* An Unforgettable Holiday features two novellas which are feel good, heartwarming stories and perfect for the holiday season. They’re clean, with a splash of faith and perfect to gift to your mum, aunty, grandma or your romance loving BFF. I loved writing these novellas and set them in two of my favourite cities – Jerusalem and New York. I have featured Australian heroines who, when travelling, find love when they least expect it. 

A Magical Christmas In Jerusalem

Australian project manager Kiara Lonsdale is career focussed and determined to provide and care for the grandmother who raised her. Taking time off work to vacation has never been high on her agenda, but this year she’s made an exception. She’s helping her gran fulfil a life-long dream by accompanying her on a Christmas to the Holy Land tour.

Jacques Lenoir and his extended family run tours in Israel and he’s committed to their business. Jacques feels responsible for his grandparents’ welfare since they risked their lives, and others’, as operatives in the French Resistance, during the War.

But over romantic dinners in the desert, camel rides, and mud baths at the Dead Sea, sparks fly between Kiara and Jacques. Will this only be a holiday romance or will a touch of Christmas magic make it last a lifetime?

A Magical Chanukah in New York
Lisa Sassoon has shunned the scandal of her loser-ex cheating on her by escaping to New York. Instead of sightseeing, she’s become a recluse focusing on helping the less fortunate at a homeless shelter. 

Gabe Olivari, entrepreneur and savvy business New Yorker, can’t let go of the pain of losing his best friend. So caught up in his own grief and believing he doesn’t deserve to be happy, he compensates by pushing everyone close to him away. 

But when Lisa and Gabe meet, there is an instant connection that forces them to question not only their behaviours but their aspirations.

Can a dash of Chanukah magic help Lisa and Gabe realise that sparkling dates and dreamy kisses can lead to more? Perhaps even a lifetime of happiness?

  3. Sounds like a lovely book with two beautiful stories! Especially the one at Jerusalem sounds interesting as I've never been there. I wonder how it's like to take mud bath in Dead Sea :-)

  4. Thanks so much Tamago :) that's so nice of you to say :)

    I was selected to go on an awesome women's program to Israel and when I returned I wrote, Falling for Mr Wrong, which is also set in Israel. It starts off with the heroine about to fall in a vat of mud and the hero catching her :)

    They actually no longer have vats but you get a jar of mud to smear all over your body. The minerals tingle your skin and then it washes off when you swim in the Dead Sea or under the mineral showers. It really is an amazing experience. You should add it to your bucket list :)

  5. Nice! Writing in a coffee shop sounds so cozy :)

    1. Thanks Tess, it is :)

      Because I work from home, I have to get outside. I walk each day and once a week write in the coffee shop. Just a way to be outdoors and gives me time to interact with others :)
