White Gum Creek

Hi everyone!

I know it's been an age since I updated the blog -sorry and I hope that you'll all forgive me. Life certainly got in the way of things. :(

However even though last year wasn't particularly stellar but I did manage to write one book and it's just been released.

White Gum Creek is about a man who believes that he's lost everything and deserves nothing For years he's kept to himself in a self imposed captivity and that's the way he likes it. But all things change and maybe... just maybe, Nick has been given a second chance at life.

Nick Langtree first made an appearance in my last novel, Country Roads. At the time, I thought he was a good foil for one of my main characters. But the more I thought about him, the more I decided that Nick deserved his own story. So I hope that you'll come along with me to White Gum Creek and help rescue my favourite recluse.

Here's the blurb -

Nicholas Langtree has been hiding out on his farm, Winters Hill ever since the death of his wife. He keeps to himself and that’s the way he likes it. The town’s folk over the years have tried to help him but he’s pushed them all away.

Nick has seen a lot of heartache, so much that it's almost broken him but can he get past it to finally start living again?

Natasha (Tash) Duroz, the owner of the Gumnut Bakery tries to engage him into conversation each time he comes into town. There’s something about him that draws Tash in but what she has to discover is what she feels pity or something more?

Nick has been the target of minor vandalism over the years but as he begins to connect with the outside world it escalates. Is someone out to hurt him or have the years of solitude distorted his mind?
White Gum Creek is available in both print and e-format.
As always, thanks for stopping by!
Nicole xx
