Welcome to my little bit of the world.

I believe in words. I believe in stories. I believe in love and courage and abandoning comfort zones, and I believe in farsickness - a longing for far-off places.

So, have a look around and let my stories take you away. From eclectic Melbourne bars to cluttered Turkish bazaars and beyond, we can share our wanderlust.

If you'd rather make yourself at home than take to the skies, I've got a cast of characters here who will come to feel like friends and neighbours.

There's a little bit of everything, and I'm glad you're here.

I'm very excited to announce that I have signed a contract with Harlequin Australia's Escape Publishing for my new book Have Your Cake, a contemporary romance set in eclectic Camden, London. It will be available 4 April 2020, but you can pre-order your copy now!

New book


Summer of love and sales

It's all happening for the first title in my Return to Me series, Summer Return; it's featured as one of the top fifteen pool-side reads on Romance.com.au, and as part of the Harlequin Summer of Love promotion, is currently on sale! Get your copy here before the sale ends on 1 March 2020.


Summer Return is also still available in a print-only bind up with fellow authors Rachael Johns and Shirley Wine. You can get this print edition, called The Promise of Summer, from Big W, KMart, Booktopia, etc.
