SUPER EXCITING NEWS!
I am currently in negotiations with Crimson Romance to release the romantic suspense story 'Inheriting Fear'. Stay tuned for updates and a release date.
Since I started the Novelist's Circle group four years ago, five members have gone on to publication. I make a deleriously happy number six.
Writing can be an isolating career, but it doesn't have to be lonely. Networking with other writers is one of the most satisfying and motivating aspects and I have met some wonderful people, with whom I couldn't have persisted to this point. A special thank you to:
* Everyone (past and present) from the Novelists Circle;
* Rowena Holloway;
* Carla Caruso; and
* Leesa Bow.
This story placed 10th in the Valerie Parv Awards, which gave me hope that maybe I wasn't the only one who liked it (LOL). So, what's it about?
Mya is a motorbike-riding chef who is stalked by an enemy from her past and forced to rely on cocky Detective Patterson to avoid becoming the next victim.
My favourite heroines are courageous and self-reliant women who need robust heroes to sweep them off their feet. Mya is a gritty, intense and sometimes dangerous woman with a serious mistrust of men. Her counterpart is Luca, a plain-clothes detective who isn't sure if she is a misunderstood neighbour or involved in something more sinister.
Now they will have to work together to stay alive.
