Yet seven years on, look where it led us . . .’ When Aisha met Ryan she fell hard for his good looks and easy charm. Why worry that he didn’t want children or a 9 to 5 job? Nothing and no one would come between them. But with the birth of their high-needs son, Eli, their extraordinary love is shackled into an ordinary life, their passion blunted by responsibility. Until Ryan can’t take…

The Finish Line; A published Book. But will it change me or the way I write?

Most writers spend months (years?) wondering if their little story has enough gumption for the big bad world, and I was no different. But my secrets out. It has happened – my final  copies of Losing Kate have arrived – with much fanfare (our dog bailing up the courier, and my three boys running naked in the yard with water-pistols). I’ve had a busy few weeks flaunting Kate about, and now that the dust has settled it has finally sunk in. Publishing a book feels like a child leaving home.…

More Than You Ever Needed To Know On How I Write

The Elusive Writing Process. Contemporary Romance Author Lily Malone: queen of the simile, master of the detail, has kindly tagged me to answer some questions on How I Write. And well, after stroking my ego by saying nice things about me on her blog again, I couldn’t refuse. (That’s not entirely true – who can resist a rare chance to talk about themselves?) In the year or so I’ve been fluffing around with one story, Lily (the beanie-clad beauty you see there) has managed to churn out THREE fabulous new…

Just like the best people, some of the best books are an eclectic mix.

GenreCon Just like the best people, some of the best books are an eclectic mix. For those that don’t know, GenreCon (run by the fabulous Queensland Writers Centre)  is a meeting of the minds, a conference for the writers amongst us that have their stories shelved in their own corner of the book shop. Whilst, in fact, that isn’t me, I decided to gatecrash anyway, and see what I could glean from their writing conventions, their readers expectations, and their valuable experience. I write general women’s fiction, and at times,…

Praise for Walking On Trampolines

Go Brisbane Writers! After seven years in the making, Frances Whiting, our favourite Brissy columnist, has released her first novel, Walking on Trampolines. And it’s a keeper. She’s Australia’s Marian Keyes – both of whom write stories rich with characters you want to take home, and have you laughing and crying (often on the same page). I had the pleasure of meeting Frances at her book launch and was not surprised when she was as delightful in real life as she is on the page. Although not officially set in…
