Bringing In “The Maxwell Sisters”

Well, it’s 2015! Happy New Year! I hope you’ve all had a relaxing holiday season. Perhaps you’ve picked up a copy of my latest release, “The Maxwell Sisters,” finally on shelves this month. I’ve had a few local sightings of my book in store and am very excited to see this story out there and thriving. Absolutely love the feedback and reviews I’ve received so far. So glad readers are enjoying this novel.

As for myself, I’ve had a wonderful Christmas and have just returned from a very “Maxwell Sister” themed holiday in Yallingup – the setting of Eve, Phoebe’s and Tash’s reunion.

Photo from Down South DEC2014Every year around this time, my husband and I pack up the kids and hit the road to his parents place in the Margaret River Wine region. The kids love it and so do we. I’ve just enjoyed six fabulous days catching up with family, eating great food and drinking sensational wine. I enjoyed it even more this year because I was thinking about all my readers experiencing the exact same setting through my story. As an added bonus, I decided to cook a Moussaka. It’s the dish in my novel that brings the family all together when the sisters first arrive at Tawny Brooks Winery. I’ve eaten it many times but never actually cooked it myself, so I decided I must give it a go. Glad I did. It wasn’t half bad if I do say so myself. Especially served with a glass of Blind Corner’s spicy Shiraz.

If you’d like the recipe or want to read about the importance of this dish in the “The Maxwell Sisters,” then don’t forget to visit me, when I guest blog at Cathryn Hein’s, Friday Feast on the 30th Jan.

In the meantime, I’m about to kick off my “Maxwell Sisters” blog tour next week. Over the next couple of months, I’ll be visiting the blog pages of all my favourite authors talking about my inspiration for each of the characters in “The Maxwell Sisters.” I hope you’ll join me on the road. If you leave a comment at any of my posts on the tour,(including this one) you’ll go in the draw to win a free signed copy of “The Maxwell Sisters.”
If you’ve read the book already, please do drop by anyway and tell me what you liked about it. I always LOVE hearing from readers. The winner will be announced on my wrap up blog on the 23rd February.

Happy Reading!
