Calhoun Customs Garage is Open for Business

Drivers, start your engines! Calhoun Customs Garage is open for business.

I am thrilled to bring you this series from Tule Publishing for so many reasons. One is that I get the chance to play in their garage, and two because I’m a huge fan of NASCAR and V8 Supercars.

I had so much fun writing Overdrive. Chase and Charlie came to life, living and breathing characters on the page. I’d love to say they wrote their own story, but it wasn’t quite that perfect 🙂

Like any race or competition, there were challenges along the way, some tears, a lot of chocolate and a few bottles of wine, but it all came together in time for the fall of the checkered flag.

There were bloopers and deleted scenes (like the one featured on Tule’s Blog) and heaps of editing, but Charlie, Zoe and Chase emerged winners in the end. As for me … I got to combine the loves of my life – racing, cars and writing.

The most rewarding thing (other than the gorgeous cover) has been the opportunity to chat with readers and NASCAR fans over at the Tule Book Club.  It’s inspiring and invigorating, which is a good thing because Fast Lane is due out in September!

Thank you, as always, to the readers who love to share these stories with me. You inspire me to keep writing.

Giveaway (Closed): Winter Reading Sorted

Hello from a wet and wintery Perth.

Last month I promised you  a giveaway and today seemed like the perfect day for it. I’m sipping a hot peppermint tea from a lovely cup given to me by my friend, Ann B Harrison and listening to the rain on the roof. That had me thinking about curling up under the blanket with a good book.

I’ve just finished the final proofread of Overdrive which is due for release on June 26, 2018 and working on the next book in the series, Fast Lane. In between, I’m catching up on my reading list which includes: Blood Tree River by Sarah Barrie, As I Am by Mel Teshco, One Night Wife by Ainslie Paton and Kiss Me at Willoughby Close by Kate Hewitt.

Now, about that giveaway…
