Merry Christmas! 24 days of excitement as you unwrap a new offer each day. Some are single books, others are anthologies. I am buying every one! There is sure to be something for every reading taste, so check back daily to discover the new offering.
I’m so excited to share news of a new series. When I wrote Jasmine Sea, a new character appeared and demanded to be introduced. Dr Charlotte Dean made quite an impression in that book and then in The Secrets of Palmerston House.
But Charlotte had other things to do, so moved to a beautiful small town named Kingfisher Falls.
The Christmas Tree Thief is the first of her own series, mysteries in a whodunit style with just a dash (or sometimes a deluge) of danger.
The next two books are underway. Deadly Secrets is due for an early 2020 release, and Deadly Secrets around mid 2020.
I hope you’ll love Charlotte’s new life and cannot wait to share the whole series.
I love both!
For the sheer convenience, a phone or reader allows me to have a book almost anywhere, and lots of them.
There is something so wonderful though about the feel and smell of a paperback. And I love to hold the books I write in my hands. So special!
Did you know I also publish in large print paperback? My eyesight is not what it used to be, so a larger print is perfect. The whole River’s End series is available in large print as well as regular print at Amazon, from my website, and some other booksellers.
Either way, I think we can agree… we love books!
Where did she go for all those years? This short (11k) prequel tells all. It can be read first, or alongside any of the series.
With the arrival of Martha, I’ve moved all ebook versions of the series in Kindle Unlimited. Paperbacks are still available from selected booksellers and this website.
For the third time, Jasmine Sea has been awarded for its beautiful cover, this time by Top Shelf magazine, over fierce competition. My thanks, as always, to Steam Power Studios for the stunning design.
So thrilled that my brand new release, The Secrets of Palmerston House, is one of the top 10 Mystery/Thriller covers and has a chance of going into the finals.
I would love your vote and all it takes is one click – no email or registration required. Follow the link and find the thumbnails. Vote on the one you like most (hint, it is a green cover with a bride and a name rhyming with The Secrets of Palmerston House, lol), and that is it!
Last year, Jasmine Sea was voted Kobo’s Romance Cover of 2017, and was 2nd overall. Both covers are the creations of Steam Power Studios, who have done all five of my covers to date. Isn’t it pretty?
UPDATE 1 DEC 18. Winner has been drawn and will be announced once they confirm their details. Check your emails!

A few months ago I entered a short story competition run by Romance Writers of Australia.
Little Gems is an annual sweet romance competition – contemporary romance with a sweet perspective. This year, the theme is Jade.
I wrote a story called The Jade Heart. It is about a missing family heirloom up for auction. The problem is, the person who desperately wants to buy it back is hardly in a position to do so. Which is where a stranger with confusing motives comes in…
The competition was hotly contested by some amazing writers, so to be one of the winners came as a delightful surprise. And I love the prize! It is being part of the Little Gems Anthology 2018 with The Jade Heart.
It released as both paperback and ebook in mid August and all profit goes to the very worthy programs RWA runs, including assistance for disadvantaged authors. So, if you enjoy heartwarming stories that make you smile, order from Amazon or RWA.
I can’t wait to see what you think!
