What if…writer’s block is an illusion?

In the short time I've been on my writing journey, I've heard and read much about writer's block. That dreaded dark space where ideas fear to tread. A kind of no-man's-land waiting to swallow up any unsuspecting creativity lingering on the edge of the writer's mind. In its simplest terms, writer's block is

What if…I win with my unpublished manuscript?

I couldn't believe it when my name was announced as the winner of the Best Unpublished Romance Manuscript 2017 at the Romance Writers of Australia conference in August. What a wonderful surprise!

What if…time slips away?

The second half of 2016 has truly slipped away. Crammed with so much inspiration and activity, I have repeatedly moved my blogging to my To-Do list week after week. But to scold myself would be counter-productive. As an author my first commitment must be to my writing, and I've been thrashing out my fifth manuscript

What if…I publish three books in just over a year?

If someone had told me when I started this journey to be a published author, that I would have my first three books published in just over a year, I would have thought they were overly optimistic. But it happened!The third book in my Dance of Love series, Dance to a Gypsy Beat, was published
