Whereabouts is Helene now?

Wednesday, 29 May 2013 by

My next guest on Writers Whereabouts is the lovely Helene Young. I have her latest book Half Moon Bay in my hands finally and today is a perfect day to start reading it. (it’s raining outside and the fire is going) I’m a big fan of Helene’s writing and can’t wait to open the pages. We are both published by Penguin and share the same amazing publisher but we live on opposite sides of Australia. (and Helene’s new home would make me rather green.) But I’d still give it a go just to see all those wonderful sunsets over the water. 🙂 Thanks for stopping by Helene. x Whereabouts is Helene Now? Fiona, thanks for having me on your blog to chat about my current whereabouts. Life’s been pretty exciting recently for us as we’ve moved from a house to a catamaran called Roo Bin Esque. My husband’s taken to calling us Grotty Yachties… Nothing grotty

RWA Conference 2012

Thursday, 23 August 2012 by

I should have called this blog ‘Name dropping’ because I will be doing a lot of it. But it’s hard not to when I spent the whole RWA conference going ‘OMG thats so and so’ and running around getting books signed by these authors. Lets start at the beginning. We flew over to the Gold Coast with my family for a few fun filled days before the conference. Yes, we went to Wet’n’Wild and we went on the ‘wanted to scream my head off but was too scared’ ride first. Had the best day with the kids up and down the rides all day. (Gave my legs & butt a fab workout!)  Perfect weather, hardly anyone around and no mobile phones AKA no work! Bliss. We also went to Seaworld and spent a day walking around Surfers Paradise. Hubby had the kids entertained while I was at the conference. I think they spent every moment

Helene Young – Guest Blog

Friday, 06 July 2012 by

One of my favourite authors is the lovely Helene Young and I’m very excited to have her as my guest blogger today. I’ve been lucky to have met Helene a few times over the last few years at the RWA Conferences and looking forward to catching up again in just over 5 weeks time.  (yay!!)  I also can’t wait to get my hands on a copy of her new book Burning Lies, I have been waiting since I finished Shattered Sky for this story on Ryan. And from all the amazing reviews I’ve read so far, it’s living up to my expectations as always. A big congrats to Helene on her third book! Here she is… Fiona, thanks so much for inviting me to talk about Burning Lies on your blog. This is the final book in the Border Watch series and it explores the impact of bushfires and arson on our communities. The idea started back

Events coming up…

Friday, 29 June 2012 by

  I haven’t been blogging much lately as I’ve been rather busy.  With winter sports on I feel like I spend most of my time in our car, driving 60km to town so son can play auskick one day and then another trip for our hockey training. Then come weekend its off to which ever town we are playing, this weekend it’s against Bruce Rock which is just over an hour and a half trip to get there. I don’t add up my time spent in our car….I think the total would scare me!! And in the country it’s not just me doing it, everyone travels.   I do have some guest blogs coming up with new rural authors Barbara Hannay and Jennifer Scoullar, also Helene Young with her thrid book Burning Lies. Will be great to hear more from these wonderful ladies.   Now some details on where I will be in July. For

Writing spaces – part 1

Monday, 12 September 2011 by

I don’t know about you guys, but I love getting glimpses into writers lives. It’s one of the reasons I love reading the acknowledgements in the books I love.  So this is what inspired the next few blogs on ‘writing spaces’.  I have asked a few of my writing friends for a snap shot into their lives and of the special place where our characters are born and our stories are made. My first author is Nicole Alexander, writer of The Bark Cutters and A Changing Land. She is not just a writer but a fourth generation grazier working on her family property which is located 110 km north west of Moree and 100 km west of Goondiwindi near the NSW QLD border.   Nicole: “As I’m easily distracted I make sure I can’t look directly out a window, hence my corner position. Having said that when the floods were on in January I did keep my eyes glued
