I acknowledge and pay respect to the Turrbal people of Brisbane, Meeanjin who are the first storytellers of this land. I extend my respect to their elders past, present and emerging, and acknowledge their endearing connection to their culture, water and land where I live and work.

New Story

Available now!!

Some men are too sweet to be true. Perhaps he is one of them…


When Parisian company Clément Sweets opens up their first Australian store in Brisbane, Lavinia and her sister are over the moon.


Who wouldn’t want to visit the same shop they used to frequent when they lived with their parents in Paris?


Going to the opening practically feels like a walk down memory lane.


Until Lavinia meets someone new…


Émile Clément is breathtakingly handsome, mysterious and—for some reason—he can’t keep his eyes off her.


As if that wasn’t strange enough, Lavinia bumps into him again.


Is it a coincidence, or is it fate’s way of pushing her in the right direction?


Lavinia can hardly believe Émile is real, but when she catches him sharing a tender moment with another woman, she realises he might not be what he seems.


Too bad she accidentally leaves her heart and her grandmother’s treasured hair barrette behind when she leaves…


Coming later in 2024

A new novella about chasing your dreams and finding love in the most unexpected way.

“Love is the voice under all silences, the hope which has no opposite in fear; the strength so strong mere force is feebleness: the truth more first than sun, more last than star.”

 e.e. cummings

Thoughts on Romance

“I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you simply, without problems or pride: I love you in this way because I do not know any other way of loving but this, in which there is no I or you, so intimate that your hand upon my chest is my hand, so intimate that when I fall asleep your eyes close.””

Pablo Neruda,

100 Love Sonnets

“Doubt thou the stars are fire;
Doubt that the sun doth move;
Doubt truth to be a liar;
But never doubt I love.”

William Shakespeare
