I have NEWS

Two posts in one month? Something must be up.

Oh yes it is, peeps. Big time!

I am so excited to share with you all the news that I have signed a two book deal with Penguin!!

And not just in my dreams. For real. Actual real.

It’s been a long and often tough journey, but it’s totally worth the wait. First, it’s Penguin – home to some of my literary heroes like Jojo Moyes, Monica McInerney, Marian Keyes, Fiona McIntosh, Kate Forsyth… (I could go on). And second, a wonderful editor there fell in love with my little stories and took on both manuscripts. Yep. Both of them. She was a little disappointed to learn that Kookaburra Creek is a fictional place, as she’d fallen so hard for the community that she wanted to go live there. Praise for a writer doesn’t come any higher than that.

Over the next few months I’ll be able to share more details as I embark on this amazing journey from writer to author, but for now I just wanted to share the amazing news with you as I’ve been bursting at the seams having to sit on this while contracts were signed.

Thank you for coming on this journey with me so far, and I hope you stick around for the next part – it’s going to be a wild ride!!
