Come on a journey with me through 19th century North Queensland, Australia and explore the passions and hardships of unique characters.
There is corruption, deceit and murder, as well as cattle rustlers, slave traders and hell fire clubs. Explore townships of Jarvisfield and Inkerman, as well as Ravenswood and Bowen. One book even incorporates my great grandmothers cattle station ‘Inkerman Downs Station’.
As well as an author, I am also the most spoilt wife in the world, and a very contented mother.
Come and discover all the passion and drama of North Queensland history with me.

Tell us about your writing process.
I tend to plot basic story points on paper and then as I put it on the computer, things just happen to grow.
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
I talk to them and argue with them. More often than not I ask them what the hell they are doing.
Who are your favorite authors?
Anything by Amanda Quick and Agatha Christie. Also love To Kill a Mockingbird.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
I decided to go with a publisher because I liked knowing that someone else thought my work was good enough to publish.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
I do worry about it because there is so many self published books out there now that anyone who can operate a keyboard can call themselves a writer, even when their work isn't very good. It has made things very hard.

Australian romance, Historical romance, Historical romantic suspense.
