Kat Walker has suffered three losses in as many years, and enough is enough. Not living, but barely existing, Kat decides to move back to the family farm and make a fresh start. She’s not ready for a relationship, or the complications that come with it, so what does she do when a hot as hell cowboy and his daughter turn up on her doorstep one rainy night? When Kat finds out that Mick owns half her family farm, she has no choice but to let them stay, but letting him into her life, that’s another story.
Mick is dealing with two life changing events. First, out of nowhere, he gets a call about a daughter he never knew he had. Mick has no idea about being a parent, let alone the parent of a thirteen-year-old girl, and he’s on a steep learning curve. Bree is miserable living at Jalinda Station so Mick feels he has no choice but to sell his land and move away from the outback, away from the place that he calls home. When he strikes up a deal with cattle farmer John Walker to buy half of Bairnleigh, the last thing he expects to find is Kat, the farmer’s daughter, but Kat’s had him from the minute she opened the door.
Can Mick make her see how good they could be together, or will Kat let her past losses blind her to the happiness that could be?
A story of love, loss, family, and new beginnings.
About the Author
If you were looking for the facts then I would say that I’m a mother, a wife, a friend, a sister, a daughter, an aunty and everything else in between. I live in Canberra and yep, you guessed it, I'm a public servant.
Prior to joining the public service I was a price auditor in one of Australia’s biggest hardware chains, where lowest prices are just the beginning! I did seven years in the red shirt and loved it. I’m a people person and I loved meeting the shoppers and having a laugh with them.
In my life prior to kids I worked in the child care industry, which is truly ironic given my history with the education system. I was kicked out of pre-school at the age of four, with the teacher telling my mother that I was never to return. To this day, 43 years later, I still don't know what I did to deserve this rep. Primary school wasn’t much better. The cane was still used back then and I became good friends with it, and the days roaming the streets of Koonawarra, feels like a lifetime ago.
I've always had a terrific imagination, and I’ve always had stories in my head. Now that the kids are older and a lot more self sufficient, which one would hope for at the ages of 22, 18 and 16, I have time to do things that I love.
When I’m writing I find myself lost in the moment. My mind is constantly pondering the story, the characters, their lives, and their dramas. It’s in my head twenty four seven. I fall asleep thinking of story lines and I wake through the night with words and scenes in my head. Writing is my drug of choice, it’s an addiction that I can’t shake, and I don't want to. I love it.
Thanks for reading my books.
