~ 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.


The Secret Years is about three generations of one family. There's Lucy, a female soldier who's returned from Afghanistan and finds her life at a crossroads, Ro, her under-confident mum who feels she's made a mess of her life, and Harry, Lucy's grandfather, an outback cattleman and WW2 hero, who won the heart of a London debutante. The story moves from the Aussie outback to England and also to New Guinea during the war, so there's plenty of romance and heroism.

!! STOP PRESS: you can order a signed copy of The Secret Years from Booktopia.!!



In other lovely news, Moonlight Plains is a finalist in the long romance category of the Romantic Book of the Year award, fondly known as the Ruby. The winners will be announced at the RWAust conference in Melbourne in August.

Best wishes,



























The Secret Years
