Learning in reverse – don’t make my mistakes!

Learning in reverse – don’t make my mistakes!

Tradie romance, a new sub-genre?

Check me out, on site, boots and all!!!   As many of you know, we’re currently renovating our home, and the tradesmen I deal with are super nice. When they found out I write romance, they encouraged me to write a “tradie romance”. What do you think? A new sub-genre? Much better than “Lust in …

Thanks Harper Lee

Thanks Harper Lee 🙂 I know my writing improved when I started writing for me and not what I thought the publishers wanted. Against advice, I created a clean-cut-crooner superstar. Not your average hero but so far, all my readers love Alex Jackson! And I have a fan-girl crush on him 😉 Want to know …
