I'm still here

I haven’t fallen off the planet…I’ve been busy working on structure edits for Book 2 (working title is still Haze and I think it might stick) and have the final draft of Shadows for one last proof read before it goes off to the printer.

Copies should head out to reviewers in coming weeks, which I’m trying not to think too much about (and failing miserably).

Sometimes I still can’t quite believe this is really happening.

I’ve also been busy with the day job (bills don’t pay themselves!) and still managed to squeeze in a bit of reading. I finally read the much-hyped Divergent by Veronica Roth, which I couldn’t put down, and I was also completely hooked on Marianne de Pierres’ first two Night Creatures novels, the highly original Burn Bright and Angel Arias.

Okay, that it’s from me for now.

About Me

I’m the author of the Rephaim series and The Undercurrent.

For my day job, I’m a writer-journalist-professional communicator, where my writing involves a lot less profanity.

I grew up in regional South Australia and now live in the Scenic Rim with my husband and a retired greyhound.

If you’re interested in how I came to land a publishing deal, you can read the short version in this post from August 2011. There’s a longer version (in a guest post) here.
