At long last, I've got myself in order to release BEERFEST, which has been a bit of an adventure so far and I hope will continue to be. It's a friends-to-lovers Oktoberfest extravaganza with two characters at the centre who kind of broke my heart while I was writing. I've had a few moments of … Continue reading Beerfest is Coming!
I'm SO EXCITED for this book to be out in the world! I had a ball writing this one. Tiziano is one of my favourite characters ever and it was a joy to shepherd Jenn to a better place in her personal journey. So here's a little more about each of them: Jenn Park is … Continue reading Publication Day for Italian Sunshine!
It's been one year since my fourth book, We'll Always Have Venice, was published! It's been my favourite book, so far (A Taste of Italian Sunshine might take over that title, but I'm not quite sure, yet). In some ways, it's difficult to have favourites, because there have been things I've loved (and obsessed over) … Continue reading Happy Birthday We’ll Always Have Venice

I'm also not talking about romantic suspense, here. I'm talking about a romance where the main story is the two characters falling in love, making … Continue reading The Agony of the Antagonist
Drafting is without doubt my favourite part of the writing process - well, that's what I'll say at this stage of a draft. The beginning of a draft is sometimes like wading through a swamp, but once I'm engrossed in the story, that's my favourite part (from about halfway through the book, I start to … Continue reading The Happiest Day
Today's the day I can start officially shouting about A Taste of Italian Sunshine, which I've been calling the 'p' book. I think this is my favourite cover so far! My publisher will reveal the cover later this evening, but if you're following my blog, or are eagle-eyed, you might have seen it already and … Continue reading A Taste of Italian Sunshine Cover Reveal
It's been busy keeping up with all of my projects, recently, so this blog has felt my neglect! Here's a quick update from my cave, where I'm busy drafting Leonie Mack book seven and whipping Lilo's second book Beerfest into shape. There were a lot of highs with the release of Berlin Calling, with some … Continue reading Updates from the Writing Cave
With one week to go until Berlin Calling is released, I wanted to share a little more about my author journey and the experience of being a creator in the current climate of the publishing industry. These thoughts won't be particularly organised, but hopefully they'll give my followers some context and maybe some other writers … Continue reading Being a Hybrid Author
