I am a redhead, a Collingwood Magpies fan, and a devotee of the language of Aaron Sorkin. I'm addicted to stationery and M&Ms, weak in the face of Italians and firefighters, and a firm believer in love, luck, and fairies.
And while I'm in a mood for admitting things, it must also be said that I am a hopeless romantic. Through school I had a new crush every week, and when I discovered Sweet Dreams novels and then Mills and Boons, well surely I'd discovered a little piece of heaven!
A long-time love of the Godfather led me to believe that when the time came to nab my own happy ever after, the leading man simply had to be Italian. And he is. Half-Italian, with a hint of Scottish. Tall, dark, handsome, funny, hot-blooded and patient enough to put up with a woman who was once officially diagnosed as being 'off with the fairies'.
World travels and a Las Vegas wedding later, my man and I are parents to three beings of pure delight and live in the leafy western suburbs of Brisbane, Australia, a part of the world in which kookaburras sing outside bedroom windows of a morning, and rainbow lorikeets fill the gum trees of every back yard. A little piece of heaven indeed. That said, we also regularly play host to an assortment of creepy crawlies. Comes with the territory.
Even with all that gorgeousness in my life, I'm also lucky enough to have had more than twenty-five fun, flirty romance novels published throughout the world.
