Blurb – The Sunburnt Country

Sunday, 02 December 2012 by

The Sunburnt Country will be out early March and I don’t have a cover to show you yet, but I do have the blurb. Hope you like the sound of it. 🙂 Jonelle Baxter is a young woman in a man’s world – a tough, hardworking motor mechanic from an idyllic country family. But lately things in her perfect life have been changing, and her workshop isn’t the only local business that’s struggling. Daniel Tyler is new in town, posted from the city to manage the community bank. As he tries to rein in the spiralling debts of Bundara, he uncovers all sorts of personal dramas and challenges. The last thing Jonny and Dan need is an unwanted attraction to each other. It’s going to take more than a good drop of rain to break the drought and to keep this small but very colourful community thriving. From the bestselling author of The Road Home

Jennifer Scoullar – Guest Blog

Sunday, 15 July 2012 by

Today I have an amazing lady, Jennifer Scoullar who I met last year in Melbourne at the RWA Conference. She is one person who I remember very clearly. Her beautiful personal story has stayed with me, such a giving person and I hope she will write about that one day also. But for now she has a new book called Brumby’s Run, (out now!!) another one for our growing rural lit, chook lit, rural romance genre…(I’ve tried to include them all). Jennifer is talking today about something she is passionate about…Brumbies.   Hi Fiona, and many thanks for inviting me over to your blog. I have a new novel out, called Brumby’s Run. It is dedicated  to Australia’s marvellous Brumby welfare organisations. Groups like the Victorian Brumby Association, Save the Brumbies (and a dozen more!) operate on a shoestring to train and rehome these wonderful horses. They also work very hard to better the management of

Rachael Johns – Guest blog

Friday, 08 June 2012 by

I would like to introduce you to a great friend of mine, Rachael Johns. I met Rach many years back in Perth. My first book had been published by Penguin so the year was 2009 and we were both at the RWA WA road show. I was new and Rach was just one of many friendly welcoming faces and finding out she was a fellow country WA girl, was even better. We actually lived closer before she moved out to Goomalling to run a supermarket store with her lovely family.  Let’s find out a little more about Rach. Hi Rach, thanks for stopping by.  Let’s start with the exciting stuff. Your new single title is out soon, please tell us when it’s out and what it’s all about?   JILTED released 1st of June and it’s about long-lost lovers reunited. Of course true love never runs smoothly and all those clichĂ©s, so there’s a lot

Spoilt chooks

Monday, 04 June 2012 by

  A while back we got a heap of chooks from a friend, and combined with ours it overloaded the chook pen. This weekend we (and in we I mean Hubby, while I held a few bits of tin when I had time) finally got the new shed finished. I counted my chooks a while ago and was shocked to find I had 18 and not forgetting our two ducks. Since when did we have so many chooks?? No wonder we had about five dozen of eggs in the fridge a while back! But not now, the cold has put them off the lay. So the girls are very happy with the new bigger shed. Their old shed is now used to store their feed.  Seeing as it was a long weekend, and the day was a glorious (if depressingly rainless) day, we lit up the bonfire to roast some marshmallows in celebration of the

My two minutes

Tuesday, 22 May 2012 by

Well the weekend just gone has been a busy one, but very exciting.  Prior to the weekend I spent a whole day with photographer Colin trying to get a good photo for the Weekend Australian to go with their article.  Because his boss was very vocal about how the shot should look, hence why it took so long, we had a good idea that it wouldn’t be on page 9.  So to finally get to Saturday and find this huge photo of me (and my dog Sally) along with all the covers of my book on page 3 was beyond amazing. I don’t think I realised just how cool and a big deal it was, until I saw it. By the time he took this photo, I was totally out of smiles and doing a grimace while I squinted in the arvo sun. And my lovely Sally dog had a big sore on her face by her ear, which I’d

Cathryn Hein – Guest Blog

My guest today writes about horses. Now I grew up with horses next door and was always in awe of them and have been on the back of a few over the years but I wouldn’t say I’m a rider. (I tend to stick with cars as they don’t have a mind of their own!!) I had one horse try to grind me off her back by running close to the fence. I lifted my leg in time…but you see…I know nothing lol. But I love reading Cathryn’s books as I can understand the connection you could have with such a beautiful animal. Cathryn is also a fellow rural Penguin author who I’ve had the wonderful pleasure of meeting. (Gotta love the Romance Writers of Australia Conference. I have met so many amazing authors from it.) I look forward to getting my hands on a copy of her new book, and without further ado, I’ll

Karly Lane – Guest Blog

Sunday, 29 April 2012 by

I’m very excited to bring you author of rural romance (with suspense) the lovely Karly Lane. Author of North Star and new release Morgan’s Law. It’s out now, just in time for Mothers Day!! I can’t wait to get my hands on a copy!  As I read I can hear Karly’s voice and her humour coming through the words on the page. Always a delight.  Now I’ll let Karly tell us about her new book…… It’s really lovely to be dropping by to chat with you and your readers, Fee, about my new release Morgan’s Law. Thanks so much for asking me. Well, book two! I’m so excited to be releasing another book—but it just doesn’t lose that nerve wracking, happy, sick, nervous felling that goes along with a new release coming out does it? (I totally hear you, about those nerves Karly :/ ) Morgan’s Law is another rural community based story, and centres around Sarah Murphy who is
