~ Every generation has its secrets ~







For any of you who live in the Townsville region, I'll be giving a talk about writing and researching in North Queensland at the beautiful Museum of Tropical Queensland at noon on December 8th. Admission is free and I'd love to see you there.



And there's a new book on the horizon. Coming from Harlequin on New Year's Day is THE HUSBAND SHE'D NEVER MET.


I received a box of these books yesterday and I'm running a giveaway competition on my Facebook page, so hop on over there and leave a comment to be in the draw!


My very first romance was an amnesia story and I've thoroughly enjoyed revisiting that theme.










Meanwhile, I've been thrilled by the wonderful response from both readers and reviewers to The Secret Years. Thank you!!


Here's what reviewers are saying:

'Bound to become a new favourite.' The Age

'The Secret Years has everything a romantic reader could want ... A brilliant piece of work.’ Newcastle Herald


'It's a pleasure to follow an author who gets better with every book. Barbara Hannay delights with this cross-generational love story, which is terrifically romantic and full of surprises.' Apple iBooks, 'Best Books of the Month'

'The Secret Years by Barbara Hannay absolutely consumed me… Just a remarkably breathtaking read. Once again, Barbara Hannay manages to knock this reader over with a feather' Talking Books

* Read more reviews and more about the The Secret Years here.

* Also, I've uploaded a video trailer for The Secret Years onto my blog!

* And you can read about how I got the ideas for this story on the Australian Rural Romance blog.

Best wishes,





























The Secret Years
