I write sweet romance novels set both in small towns and big cities, in locations here in New Zealand and overseas; they’re stories about families, friends, and always, some fun in the angst of the romantic tale!

Latest book

Bringing Back Emily, Book 3 in the ‘City of Sails’ series, and a follow on  from Falling for Jack, and All About Sage  is now available exclusively to Amazon.   Buy it here.

A woman whose life has just been turned upside down yet again, a man who is trying to atone for a past he can’t forget… and the journey that brings these two so-not-ready-for-romance people together.
A wounded loner, Patrick Coulter is a man with secrets. Living with a burden from which he believes he can never escape, he has a contract to write his life story, and he hopes it will atone for what he has done. He rents a house to focus on the book, which happens to be next door to quirky Sage Lockwood. He can cope with Sage, but he doesn’t count on meeting the woman who is about to change his life – and change him forever. Sage’s friend, Emily.
As Emily and Patrick draw closer together and try to move through their own struggles, their feelings for each other grow. But can there ever be a future for two people with such uncertain futures? Can love overcome their very real struggles?  “Bringing Back Emily” is the third book in the City of Sails series.
