News on the Rephaim series

One of the exciting announcements at Shadows’ launch last week was that Text Publishing has now signed me for books 3 and 4 of the Rephaim series.

Needless to say, I’m ecstatic the entire series will be published by the team at Text. It also means I’ll be simultaneously editing one book while writing another for the next two years – so, plenty of work ahead of me.

As I’ve mentioned in recent weeks, I’ve got a draft of Haze (book 2) down, with the editing process set to start in coming weeks. In the meantime, I’ve started on book 3. I need to set aside a few days for some intensive writing (or, as we say at the Queensland Writers’ Centre, go down the rabbit hole) just to really kick it along.

There are some other snippets of news to come, so stay tuned… 🙂


  1. Yay! Congratulations! I’m so glad the whole series will be published. I’m sure I’ll be reading every book. 😉

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.
