Divine Guidance Book Signing – Fabulous Day

A huge thank you goes out to Richard from Book Haven, Stockland Baulkham Hills, for hosting my book signing on Saturday, September 12th.  So many lovely people came along to lend their support,

The day was a bit surreal.  I think back on the dreams and goals set so many years ago and how I used to think and say, “I will be a published author and some day I will find myself sitting in a bookstore signing copies of my novel”.

There’s something to be said for self-fulfilling prophecies.  Dreams really do come to fruition if you truly believe and work hard to support that belief.

Thank you, Universe!

Torn Veil – Chapter One Has Evolved

As I write Torn Veil, the sequel to Divine Guidance, the storyline changes and the characters evolve.  Quite simply, the characters come to life – their personalities take shape and I rewrite paragraphs, chapters, moments in their dialogue and actions to support their evolution.

The first chapter of Torn Veil has been updated on the Torn Veil page of this site. The update reflects the evolution of Patrick – a complex and conflicted character who is coming to life more and more every day.

I can’t wait to see where my imagination takes Patrick, the main characters and what will happen next in the little city of Creekwood.  Stay tuned.

Reviews Mean So Much

When a reader’s review pops up on Amazon it is the most wonderful feeling ever — especially when it’s a five-star review. Someone important — a lover of books — is validating the hard work you have dedicated to creating your fictional world and the characters who inhabit that world.

There’s a sense of pride in what you have accomplished — of course, so many people help along the way to achieve the accomplishment of publishing a book. A huge thanks to everyone who has read Divine Guidance and to those who offered encouragement, feedback, editing, design and of course, love.  You are all legends! Thank you so much!
