Behind the books

I'm a bit of crackpot with my writing.

My website is about my writing process, my books, but my social media stuff is about me, the writer. My "street team" or The Lovelies, a nod to my first novel, keep me sane, and are the ones who really get to know what's behind my books.

Many book ideas stem from dreams, so I'm scrambling to get the dreams out of my head first thing in the morning, usually over a cup of very strong coffee. Thankfully, I have a husband who has my coffee waiting and gives me the quiet space to write. (He's learned the hard way.)

I am a complete coffee snob (like most Australians) and I love a good drop of Spanish or Portuguese wine. But never from a box.
