I was a finalist in the Romance Writers of New Zealand inaugural Koru Award and I came second with ONE SECRET NIGHT! Such an honour to be nominated amongst the wealth of talent entered.
What Iím reading:
Barbara Erskine's THE DARKEST HOUR. I love her mix of past and present and the eeriness she evokes with her stories!
What Iím listening to:
Pretty much anything and everything, lately. Interspersed with glorious silence!
What Iím watching:
I was watching UNDER THE DOME, but this series isn't grabbing me like the first one. I do enjoy FACE OFF, though. Some serious talent there! Oh, and I love an English programme called ESCAPE TO THE COUNTRY. I love old houses and this allows me to be quite the voyeur!

While still on a high from July's Romance Writers of America conference, for me, August saw the Romance Writers of New Zealand conference. The guest speakers were incredible and I found the teachings of James Scott Bell to be particularly helpful. I presented a workshop together with my great friend, Trish Morey, and had a brilliant time learning and mixing with new and old friends. Highlights for me were definitely the Harlequin Author Dinner and meeting Marie Force, hearing James Scott Bell hold the conference room captive for an entire day without my attention wandering (a new and very irritating habit of my attention,) and the meet the author book signing opportunity on Saturday evening. It never gets old meeting your readers, that's for sure!
For the month of September I'm going to be busy putting all those new teachings to practice by working up a new proposal for Harlequin Desire, a new proposal for Tule Publishing, and very likely a new project just for me.
