I love my country and I think that’s pretty apparent in my novels. I try to put as much of Australia as I can into them. From our slang and way of talking, to the landscape, the weather, the wildlife and our great Aussie humour. If you’re looking for the typical Aussie bloke or the untypical they’re all in my novels plus a few feisty sheila’s to keep them honest.

In fact, there are a lot of Aussie authors celebrating Australia Day this weekend by giving away some wonderful home grown books on their blogs. For your chance to win some titles other than mine just visit Book’d out for a complete list of authors and blogs.

I know I’m going to be surfing the net this weekend. You can never have too many books! ☺

I will announce the winner one of my three book pack on my blog on the 4th February. So don’t forget to check back to see if you won.

Good Luck and Happy Australia Day.

Where have I been?

Yes, my blog has been quiet this New Year. I’ve been busy. 🙂 With “The Girl in the Yellow Vest” fresh on the shelves I’ve been hit up quite a bit this month for interviews and invitations to guest blog. My Facebook and Twitter sites are also extra busy. It’s been quite hectic just keeping up with reader comments and sending some back myself. Not, that I’m complaining. Love, love, love chatting to readers and receiving feedback, hearing about book sightings in remote stores and talking incessantly about the project I’ve been keep under wraps for a whole year and is now finally out there. Yay! Hope everyone’s enjoying it. Have been receiving some wonderful reviews, so am quite chuffed myself.

In case, you’ve been missing me on the blog these last few weeks, thought I’d give you a couple of links to posts I’ve done this month on my friends sites to reach new readers and also celebrate the release of “The Girl in the Yellow Vest”. I’ve written letters to Rachael Johns and Margareta Osborn. I’m also on the Random House Blog today talking, “Eight things You Don’t Know About FIFO life.” I had a lot of fun with that one so please do check it out.

In the meantime, I might leave you with a fun pic sent to me by one of the staff at Random House who happened to spot this at Melbourne Airport. Love it! Love it! Love it! Actually I just love release month in general.
