Happy Days!


There’s something sweet about holding a paperback in your hands, even more so when it’s your own hard work. As much as I love my Kindle, there is no competition for the feel and smell of the real deal. Today, so many happy memories were made (except for the air conditioning saga – that’s a story for another day).

First, I woke up to fabulous news from fellow Bindarra Bestseller_cropCreek Romance author, Kerrie Paterson that Home to Bindarra Creek had hit the number 1 spot in Westerns! At one stage we were side by side, but welcomed in new contender at number 2.

10_11_12Then came more great news. Our Dirty Drafters critique group comprised of myself, Jennie Jones and Lily Malone, lined up in a row and paid tribute to good old-fashioned teamwork! We played tag, swapping positions a few times during the day. I couldn’t possibly think of a better sandwich to be in (unless it’s all 13 Bindarra Creek Romances in a row!)

Mums will recognise the expression of pure bliss on their baby’s face when they clutch their favourite blanket or suck that flavoured dummy. Yep, that was me today, sniffing away with a look of bliss on my face at the exotic perfume of fresh ink and newly trimmed paper.

Could life get any better? (Well, with the exception of a working air conditioner in the expected 38 degree celsius heat?) Oh hell no! Fly, Dan and Alice, fly.

Oh and yeah, I almost forgot! If you like, you can read my latest newsletter here.

Come Home to Bindarra Creek


There’s a reason small town romance is so popular – small, remote communities are full of big hearts and here in Australia we embrace that. With so much dust and distance between us in this Great Southern Land, our small towns are widespread and often smaller than average. It’s there you’ll find hearts as big as the land itself and a community spirit that embraces everyone, even pets and wildlife.

Today I’d like to introduce you to a town called Bindarra Creek and a community you’ll grow to love month after month, starting in July 2015 with SE Gilchrist’s Bindarra Creek Makeover. Each month a new author will introduce you to a romance starring their own characters and their little pocket of Bindarra Creek, a town you’ll want to live in. Follow the stories of love, loss, discovery, redemption and happy-ever-afters with the residents and hearts of Bindarra Creek. Thanks to Stacey Nash for setting up the links on Goodreads. I am honoured to be a part of this heart-warming series from a fabulous group of authors.
