Happy New Year!

Well it’s that time again – NYE and I’m wondering (as I seem to do each December), where did the time go? Are the years passing quicker as I get older?

Last year my NY resolution was to write. I did write but wish I’d had time to write more.

Have you made any New Year resolutions for 2012? I’d love to hear them.

Wishing you all a very happy New Year.


One Perfect Night – celebrating Rachael Johns’ launch day

I am absolutely delighted my friend and crit partner (CP), Rachael Johns, is celebrating her launch day today.

If the cover doesn’t entice you (how could it not!), check out the first few lines –

“Don’t look now, but Mr. McSexy just entered the building.”

“Blast.” Peppa Grant spun round and did exactly what her best friend and colleague Izzy had ordered her not to. Her breathing faltered at the sight of six foot plus of unadulterated male who now towered at the entrance to the company’s function room. An anxious hush fell over the previously buzzing room. As all eyes snapped to him, she tried not to quake in her costume’s fairy shoes.

I’ve read this book and it’s fabulous. Rach has a great writing style and I’m thrilled she’s now a published writer.

If you want a great read, you can buy it –

At Amazon (

or Carina Press (

AUTHOR BIO: Rachael Johns is an English teacher by trade, a mum 24/7, a chronic arachnophobic, a supermarket owner by day and a writer by night. She rarely sleeps. Rachael received The Call from Angela James telling her Carina wanted to publish her book on April Fools Day and, when she told her friends, half of them wondered if it was a big joke. Luckily it wasn’t. As an active member of Romance Writers of Australia, Rachael has finaled and placed in a number of romance writing contests. Each success is uplifting and publication is her dream but even if none of this happened, she’d still write. It’s a much better option than ironing, which she refuses to partake in. Ever.

A new me!

Ta da – a new photo of me. It’s pretty exciting to have a new author pic.

Despite some jitters about smiling for the camera I’m really happy with the results 🙂

Right-io, off to do some writing.

Have a great weekend!
