Someone pinch me … today’s the day!

PINCH ME. Seriously. I cannot believe that today is the official release of my first printed novel – JILTED. In many ways it seems like forever since Haylee my publisher emailed to say she wanted to buy my book and, in other ways, time has flown since then (a bit like babies actually).

It’s been just over eight months and in that time, I’ve done edits for JILTED, seen my first cover and blurb, been told I have a ”publicist”, written another ST title and subbed it as well. To say I am happy and proud is an understatement. This is truly my dream come true.

I’m heading to Perth soon for a dentist appointment (yep, that’s right, I’m living it up on release day) and might pop into a few shops to stalk my book. In the mean time, I thought I’d share the blurb with you one more time:


She left him at the altar, but her heart was always his…

After more than ten years away, Australian soap star Ellie Hughes returns to the small country town of Hope Junction, determined to remain anonymous while caring for her injured godmother, Matilda.

But word spreads fast in the tight-knit community. It isn’t long before the people of Hope’s are gossiping about the real reason for Ellie’s visit and why she broke the heart of golden boy Flynn Quartermaine all those years ago.

Soon Ellie and Flynn are thrown back together again, forced to deal with the unresolved emotions between them. For Ellie is not the only one with secrets. Flynn has his own demons to battle, and Matilda is hiding something from her much-loved goddaughter.

When all is uncovered, can the ill-fated lovers overcome the wounds of their past? Or is Flynn destined to be jilted again?

The first chap is also available to read online here!

JILTED is available in bookstores and department stores across Australia and NZ. It’s also available to order from Harlequin Books or in e-format at Amazon!
