RWA Conference NY 2019!

Last week, I returned from New York where I attended my first RWA (US) conference, and it was amazing! I was very lucky to have been awarded the regional arts grant from Sunshine Coast Council, which helped fund my registration and travel. So after a few days sightseeing and catching up with fellow author Diane […]

A sneak peek of I Thought It Was You

ONE Yeah, this was a mistake. I should have trusted my gut, but I made the decision at two in the morning while I was feeling sorry for myself—and after almost a whole bottle of red wine. My gut hadn’t quite been working the way it was supposed to. I had huge misgivings the next […]
