With the girls

Wednesday, 16 February 2011 by

Yes that wonderful time came around again…bookclub.  The gang met at our host house for the night. (A few girls missing from the picture and Catherine was too busy taking her own pics!)  Thanks Di for a brillant night and the fab choc dessert birthday cake. (I love the fact that there were only 5 candles…not 32!) I even made a wish!  Talk about feeling very spoilt and having a ball…bit of a late one, but so worth it.  I think we managed to talk about books, a few times. Then when my book came out (as its our next read…well not for me…I need a break from it!) we were in fits of laughter as bits of Heart of Gold was read out. (It was cringe worthy!!)  I must say its an uncomfortable feeling having your words read out…especially the naughty bits! The girls looking to see if they know anyone in it!  Thanks Ladies for a super

Birthday gift

Tuesday, 15 February 2011 by

Today was my birthday and what better gift could I have than a box full of Heart of Gold turning up. Sadly I had to work but the day was made fantasic when a friend dropped in for a coffee to celebrate. Even better, tonight we have book club and I’m looking forward to catching up with all the girls for drinks and a chin wag.  (They are all going to read my book for this month! Eek…hope they all like it) I can’t believe it was nearly two years ago that I was opening the box full of The Family Farm. It’s still the same awe, excitement and then sheer panic if no one likes it…then hubby reasured me that Penguin wouldn’t have printed it if it was shite.  I know he’s right…right? LOL So those people who won the competition, and the QLD Floods auction, your books will be heading out soon.   And for

First Chapter

Wednesday, 02 February 2011 by

Hi all, well the first chapter is up for Heart of Gold. You can read it on the right under the book cover.  –> –> This was my view over the weekend in Esperance. Went down for my sister in law’s wedding, which was also on the beach. It was beautiful and we got to catch up with everyone and spend time with our adorable niece. The colour of the water was amazing…hopefully we will go back again soon.  I didn’t get any writing done but now that school has gone back…yes, I took a very quiet minute to enjoy my empty house…I will now get back into the edits for Sarah’s Journey.  Also have to start organising my launch details etc, so will have them up shortly. Those in WA who would get a copy of The Wagin Argus would have seen the big picture of the new book and details about the launch. I will

Okay, so us authors usually get a few copies of our books after they are printed, and usually well before the release date.  So i’m running a competition where the winner will get a pre-released signed copy of Heart of Gold.  If you would like to be in it, all you have to do is email me at  and tell me why you would like a pre-release signed copy of Heart of Gold!  We will be drawing a winner on Friday 21st January.  Good luck! x Okay all, I have fixed the email address…yes Karin..I think I did have a ‘moment’ lol. Thanks for your help x Now I think I have “really” fixed it.  Thank God for fans like Karin to keep me on track.  (Totally understood what you meant Karin…i’m only half techno savy lol)

On Saturday we had a visit from Santa and the whole town and more rocked up to watch the kids get their presents. Can you believe there are just over fifty presents under the tree!!!  We were most upset to find the mice had a munch on the red velvet on Santa’s chair but we were able to hide it.  It was a great night but I was totally worn out and now we have just under another year before we need to think about organising the next one. It’s forcast as a ripper hot one here for Christmas (38-40) so we are lucky to be heading to the coast.  Wost thing is packing up all the pressies…only to bring them all back lol. Looking forward to sitting by the beach with a good book.  And i have lots to pick from as I have about seven to read!!  hmm don’t think i will get through

Up on the Penguin website is the blurb for Heart of Gold… which is also below. See what you think? Catherine-Jean Wishart – or CJ as she prefers – is a hardworking young country girl with a heart of gold but a tough and challenging life. She works long, strenuous days in the male-dominated world of the shearing sheds, but at home things are even harder. Her father has never recovered from an accident years earlier and his violence is tearing the family apart.  When strong, handsome Lindsay arrives on the scene, he brings fun and laughter into CJ’s life. He even teaches her to shear, and they look set for a bright future together. But then tragedy strikes again, and CJ has to dig deeper than ever before. With help from her best mate Irene and a dear old farmer called Burt, CJ learns that when you stay true to yourself and open your heart,
