Gold Coast Supanova going ahead

March 20, 2021 at 12:36 pm

If all things stay as they are, it looks like Supanova will be going ahead on the Gold Coast in April. I will be there at the Rendered Realms stand with Jeanette O’Hagan and Adele Jones on the 16th and 17th April, 2021. It will be our first event since March 2020, when COVID brought everything to a halt. I’m trying not to get too excited, as I know an outbreak could happen again and suddenly we’ll be plunged into lockdown, but we’re doing well here in Queensland and the vaccine is being slowly rolled out, so I’m hopeful it […]

The Verindon Conspiracy is out now!

May 24, 2022 at 12:39 pm

After a few struggles and technical difficulties, finally my latest book, The Verindon Conspiracy, is available now. The Verindon Conspiracy takes place about ten years after the epilogue in The Reign, book 3 in The Verindon Trilogy, but it can be read as a standalone. You don’t have to have read the trilogy to enjoy it. It follows the story of Misilina, Sarah and Keridan’s youngest child, as she graduates from the Academy and goes on her first mission as an agent. A lot of everyone’s favourite characters from the trilogy are back – Sarah and Keridan, Pravvit and Perisina, […]

Oz ComicCon Homegrown

March 16, 2022 at 10:11 am

This is my first blog for the year, and I apologise for being so tardy. However, with Omicron hitting, some new health challenges and a new release coming up, I’ve been a bit swamped. But now I’m gearing up for the release of The Verindon Conspiracy and for my first event of the year, OzComicCon Homegrown in Brisbane. OzComicCon will be held on 26-27 March at the Brisbane Convention Centre. I’ll be there at the Rendered Realms stand with Jeanette O’Hagan. Unfortunately, Adele Jones can’t join us on this occasion. Our stand number is AA3, so if you’re attending, be […]

It’s Christmas again

December 8, 2021 at 9:47 am

We’ve reached the Christmas season once more in what’s been another difficult year for most. On a personal level, this year has been a hard one for me, but as far as my writing goes, it’s been encouraging. Although a couple of events were cancelled due to COVID, I still had five major ones over the course of the year, much better than in 2020. I also signed a contract with my publisher for the publication of The Verindon Conspiracy, my next book, which will be out in 2022. It takes place about 10 years after the epilogue in The […]

2021 throws a curve ball

October 5, 2021 at 2:01 pm

I think most of us hoped that 2021 would be an improvement on 2020 with its COVID craziness and all the problems associated with living in a pandemic. It didn’t help that 2020 was also a hard year for our family personally, so I was looking forward to a better 2021. Unfortunately, 2021 decided not to be cooperative in a major way in my life, as in the first half of the year, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I’m happy to say that I’ve had surgery and they managed to remove all the cancer cells, so it’s likely I […]

Events are coming!

May 26, 2021 at 9:36 am

Things are opening up more in 2021 and I’m happy to say I’ll soon have some events happening. The first will be the Omega Writers Book Fair on 31st July. I’ll be taking part in a panel talking about book marketing; always a challenging subject! Watch this space for more details as the event draws closer. There will be another book fair in August with more details coming soon. Then I will be looking at Brisbane ComicCon and Supanova later in the year, so hopefully you’ll see me there. 🙂 It’s great to have some things to look forward to. […]

Christmas 2020

December 2, 2020 at 1:24 pm

I think a lot of people will be glad that we’ve finally reached the end of 2020. I know I am. I hope that next year will prove a lot easier for many of us. We haven’t had it as bad as many people out there who’ve lost jobs and livelihoods, and here in Australia, we’ve done pretty well overall with managing the virus, so much so that my time shopping this morning looked pretty normal for this time of year. And it’s a relief to know that there are a few promising vaccines on our horizon. Hopefully they’ll help […]

What are you reading in 2020?

October 14, 2020 at 10:19 am

When COVID-19 hit and we all went into lockdown, I thought it would be a great chance to find some new reads. I bought a few books back in March this year, but found, to my dismay, that most of them didn’t engage me. I even bought a book from one of my favourite authors but didn’t feel the desire to keep reading it. I was so relieved when Stephenie Meyer chose this year to release Midnight Sun, Twilight from Edward’s point of view. I’m a huge Twilight fan and had been waiting for this book for years. It didn’t […]

A very unusual year

September 13, 2020 at 1:10 pm

It’s been a long while since I’ve written a blog. I’d blame the pandemic, but I’m not sure it has to take full responsibility, although it had a surprising effect on me. It made me insanely busy. But first things first – the launch of The Verindon Alliance went well. I had to do it online only, as we were in the middle of a lockdown, but I held a Facebook live event, which you can see here, if you would like to, and it received a fairly good response. Sales have been encouraging, and this has been reassuring, especially […]

April 28, 2020 at 12:32 pm

The countdown is on until the launch of The Verindon Alliance. Just a few days now and you will be able to buy your very own copy! Owing to the coronavirus lockdown, I can’t do a physical launch this time, so I will be doing one on my Facebook author page, which you can see here. This event will be held at 7.00 am on Saturday 2nd May 2020 Brisbane time, 10.00 pm on Friday 1st May 2020 London time, and 5.00 pm Friday 1st May 2020 EDT (New York). The event page is here.
