What if…it goes too fast?

Since my last post, I’ve travelled to San Francisco, pitched my first murder mystery, ‘Evil on the High Seas’ at a writers conference in New York and enjoyed the lavishness of LA before returning home to Australia. While I was in New York, I did lots of research for my third book in my Diana

What if…blessings flow?

Earlier this year, I was nominated for the 2019 SBAA International Women’s Day leadership awards in the Entertainment, Creative Arts and Media Industry. To say I was surprised and thrilled would be an understatement. Of course I accepted the nomination, and underwent a rigorous evaluation process with over a dozen other nominees. One of the

It's received 5star reviews from Amazon Top 500 Reviewers and achieves an average rating consistently above 4 stars on Amazon But to be

What if…it hurts?

Over the past few months, I’ve ventured along the self-publishing pathway with my next book, Retribution. I vowed not to be beaten by the myriad of things I had to learn. At the end of long, gruelling days, I didn’t have a head ache, but I could feel my brain expanding in my

What if…it’s more than the writing?

Like many writers, when I first started out, my dream was to be offered a contract by a publisher. I was one of the lucky ones. I was offered a contract by Luminosity Publishing for my first three erotic romances, the Dance of Love series. It was a great
