Overview

In this contemporary adult romance, three lives are disrupted when Martin Ainsworth, disgraced English teacher, retreats to his New England hometown of Armidale, in Australia.

Martin’s plan—a reflective spell while he pulls his life into shape—is overturned when he accidentally meets Annie Marshall, his first love all those years ago. Now she is a wife and mother. But Annie has a secret she wants to share with Martin.

Martin is uneasy with family life and resents the arrival of his resentful teenage son.

Confused, Martin tries to escape in a sexual interlude with his attractive landlady, Sara Carmody. Sara is everything Annie is not—cool, fashionable and financially secure. With her home, her horses and her lovable Border Collie, Sara’s life is sorted … except that Sara has a secret of her own.

Torn between solving the problems of the Marshall family, Sara’s stepdaughter and Martin’s teenage son, Martin has to decide between love and logic. In this moving story of romance, love and memory, three lives will never be the same.

I am a New Zealand author, but have lived in Australia for many years. I have been writing contemporary fiction for several decades. It's one of the things I love to do. Yes, I've won prizes, grants and awards, and treasure the good reviews. But the real joy is conceiving, writing and finishing a new book. Recently I have made a change of genre, giving expression to happy endings, and I must admit my family of dogs was pressing me to give them a home in a book soon. So I have embarked on writing romantic fiction. Romance with dogs might sound a strange combination, but my first book, SEVEN LITTLE WORDS,is attracting 5 star reviews.A second romance, A NEW ENGLAND ROMANCE, is also set in Australia, while VALENTINE MASQUERADE will be out for Valentine's Day. Yes, more dogs! plus contemporary romance with real-life issues in the mix. I'm really enjoying branching into a new genre and am already at work on another story of lovers, family, children ... and dogs.
