This year has been an exciting one for me with the release of The Dragon Sleeps in November. It’s the first book in The Thornton Mysteries. A cosy mystery series with a tender love story.
Book 2 is with my publisher, with book 3 soon to follow. I’ve finished it except for a last read through.
In January, I’m starting book 4. The research is done. I’m looking forward to writing it.
Book 1 is set at Thornton Park, the family home in Victoria.
Book 2 is principally set in Daylesford, a small town in the Macedon Ranges of Victoria. Dayleford is a beautiful place, and today is known for its spas and for its natural mineral springs.
Book 3 is set at Thornton Park and the Barossa Valley in South Australia. The Barossa is prime wine country.
Book 4 will take us to Norfolk Island, a beautiful island in the South Pacific not far from Australia. I went there last year to do some research. I’m going back in 2020.
I hope you’ll come on this journey with me.
This year also saw the release of Broken, a story that is free on my website.
After the tragic death of her parents, Rachael Watson ran away, leaving her sister to manage the family lavender farm and shop. Three years later, crushed by her unrelenting grief, workplace bullying, and guilt and shame for letting her sister down, Rachael decides to return home.
There, Rachael meets Ebony, a black mare who has been mistreated and beaten. Rachael realises she is not the only one who has been broken.
The Treasure is also free on my website. It’s a novelette – short than a novella but longer than a short story. YA/NA Fantasy.
Lastly, I’d like to wish you a Merry Christmas – or Happy Holidays if you don’t celebrate Christmas – and a Happy, Healthy New Year.
