~ Every generation has its secrets ~



I'm very excited to show you the lovely new cover of The Secret Years to be released by Penguin Australia on August 26th.


This is an epic love story and family drama set in both contemporary times and amid the turmoil of World War 2 in Britain and New Guinea.

"From the wild beauty of the Australian bush to England's rugged south coast, this is a deeply moving story of heartbreak, heroism and homecoming by a beloved, multi-award-winning author."

Oh, and great news for readers and for aspiring writers this month... if you live in North Queensland, the Savannah Literary Festival will be held in May, with fabulous Australian authors like Judy Nunn and Peter FitzSimons. I'll be at the festival as well, and giving a workshop  in Townsville on May 22nd and also chairing an afternoon tea where we'll discuss the wonderful classic Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier. You can check out the festival programme here...

Back with more news soon...

Best wishes,
