How would you like a personally signed copy of ROSE RIVER?

Taa DAAA! Here it is. My new website thanks to my wonderful and very talented techno people! Isn't it just gorgeous?!

To celebrate the launch of my brand new website (I just LOVE that gorgeous purple), we are giving away a copy of my new novel, ROSE RIVER! Yes, that's right, be one of the first to read this romantic comedy about the thrills and spills of life on the land, due out on March 1!!! I have one copy sitting here on my desk ready to be personally inscribed and sent post-haste in the mail to one lucky reader.

Welcome to 2015


Hi and welcome to 2015! I hope you all had a very happy Christmas with lots of fun and good-cheer (plus the odd present or two ... or three ... ). For those with kids, I trust you haven't gone completely bonkers and are surviving the Christmas holidays? From my angle, it's about 80% 'Yippee no more lunches, washing uniforms and running kids around" and 20% - "Seriously, how many more days to go?!"

On the writing front there's lot's of exciting things kicking this year off! Let me tell you a few ...

Need Help With Your Christmas Shopping List?

The first week of December  - my official crank up week for Christmas. Unfortunately, as I have edits due at two publishing houses for both ROSE RIVER and my new US novella, I haven't gotten into festive mode yet. Although I'd better hurry, the kids are currently counting down the days until end of school and I haven't even STARTED Christmas shopping yet!

(Breathe Margareta, breathe.)

We Have a Winner & Book Week


There was great excitement here on the Hill on Friday night! I finally heard back from my publisher to say she, LOVES my new book ROSE RIVER!!! The comments went like this, 'I love it! It's like Bridget Jones in the Bush! It's funny, charming and still maintains that obvious love for the country and country characters.'

WHOO HOO! I'm a happy, happy girl!
