A little bit about me...

I’ve had a lucky life. Born into a big, chaotic, Italian/Irish family that was heavy on the laughs, if light on the money; attended city and country universities; married a book-perfect hero; birthed a wonderful daughter; made friends all over the world.

 

I’ve had more than my fair share of jobs, some brilliant, not-so-brilliant – including but not limited to selling shoes (shoes are an obsession), short order cooking (food is another obsession), nursing (my Florence Nightingale complex) and teaching (that one was little scary), before settling into a globe-trotting career in aviation (which fed my biggest obsession –travel).

 

The job I always wanted was ‘published author’, and I finally managed to land that one in 2013, when I came home to Sydney, Australia, after a posting in the Middle East. I was a top 10 finalist in Harlequin's So You Think You Can Write competition that year, as well as being one of the winners of the New Adult sister competition Harlequin ran in conjunction with Wattpad, and was lucky enough to score three publishing contracts with Harlequin in quick succession.

I write sexy, funny, modern romances, featuring strong, successful heroines who refuse to swoon, and heroes with enough alpha in them to make swooning a clear and present danger. I'm published with Penguin Random House and HarperCollins HQ Digital as well as Harlequin, and write both category and single title novels.
