Book Birthday

Hi everyone

My first rural romance, McKellan’s Run has turned one. Yep, it’s been out in the big wide world for a year. I have no idea where that time went.

McKellan’s Run is set in the fictional town of Violet Falls. The town is in Central Victoria and in the middle of old gold country. It’s a story about learning to live with past mistakes and taking chances.


Years ago, Violet Beckett made the mistake of falling for the wrong MacKellan brother and both she and her younger sister, Lily, paid the price. Now eight years later, fate has brought Violet and her daughter, Holly, back to the house Violet grew up in...As soon as Violet runs into Mac MacKellan, she wonders if she should run all the way back to the city. But something about the look in his eyes makes her want to linger. Can she trust him, can she trust herself or will she be burned again?

Mac has had a soft spot for Violet Beckett for longer than he can remember. It almost killed him to watch his brother woo her, use her and finally lose her. From their very first encounter he's hooked. But how can he convince her that not all MacKellans are the same?


The surprise this morning was the arrival of an advance copy in the new B-format. So from June you can choose between ‘Big Mac’ or  ‘Little Mac’. I really love the smaller format book – it’s so cute. J


Here are the links to Amazon

Not sure how long it will last but at the time I wrote this post McKellan’s Run (ebook) was on sale through Amazon. J


I keep getting questions from readers wondering who the next pairing in Violet Falls should be. I’m open for suggestions and I’d love to hear from you.  I’m thinking that the town’s favourite princess, Charlotte Somerville  needs a story – what do you think?

In the meantime I’m hitting the keyboard and working on my current project about the tiny town of White Gum Creek.

Thanks for dropping by.

Hi everyone.

Life has been a bit tumultuous over the past few months. Anyway, I’m back and hopefully things will settle down and I’ll be able to get back into the swing – a la writing that is.

There’s a bit of news. The small publisher that my early medieval romances were with is closing its doors. This means that I’ll be getting the rights back. Some I will republish myself and there are a couple I want to rewrite. The Lords of Foxwoods Hall is the coupling of two novellas – Capturing Bliss and Seizing Heaven. I really loved these stories and it was always my intention to finish the series. I always thought that a magical betrothal ring which is handed down to each generation of the Reynard family was intriguing.  So I’m toying with the idea of enlarging and rewriting the first two stories and then writing the next two instalments.

So goodbye Jupiter Garden Press and I’ll always be grateful for you picking up my very first novella – The Trinket Seller’s Daughter.

In other news, Hartley’s Grange which is the second book in the Violet Falls series is doing well and become an Australian bestseller (which is absolutely wonderful and I’m so happy that people think Flynn Hartley is as yummy as I do!). So if you’re tempted to while away a few hours with a sexy grazier, I hope you’ll give Hartley’s Grange a go.


Thanks for stopping by.
