When did you decide to become a writer?
It was a conscious decision when I was at home with a baby, but ever since I can remember I’ve woven stories in my head and had “conversations” with imaginary people. Before I had children , I always kept a detailed travel diary and at different times in my life I’ve written a journal, so writing a book in some ways was a natural next step.

What’s BOOMERANG BRIDE about?
Matilda Geoffrey risked it all for love. She left Australia to be with Barry-the man who had swept her off her virtual feet. Now, wearing a wedding dress, she's alone on Main Street in small-town Wisconsin, and things aren't working out exactly as planned...
In town for his annual family visit, Marc Olsen had never seen a bride quite like Matilda-staring into a storefront window, holding a tottering wedding cake, and looking desperately in need of a groom. He may not have any warm feelings for his hometown, but meeting Matilda just as she discovers she's been scammed by her online "fiancé" stirs something in him.
Matilda is not the kind of woman Marc imagined himself with, and Marc is anything but the romantic hero that Matilda has always dreamed of. But as unlikely circumstances throw them together, can they let go of their misconceptions and risk their hearts for love?

What are a few facts about your life?
I’m an Australian, but I’ve lived around the world including Papua New Guinea, Canada and the USA. I have two red-headed sons; the 17-year -old is hugely into playing the piano and all things scientific, and the 13 year-old is into science, drama and visual arts. My commute to the office is up a spiral stair case and I can see the sea from up there, and hear the fog-warning hooter for the ships in winter. My husband has to commute a bit further for his job as a computer analyst. We’re currently living in Australia, but we love to travel and we do whenever we can. We’re just back from a fabulous time swimming with whale sharks and are busy planning our next trip!

And she says...
I love weddings and it’s the stories about what happened on the day that make me smile. My BIL was a shocking tease so on the day of my wedding, when he told me on the phone that the fly on my husband’s suit was broken, I didn’t believe him. Turns out it was true and he went to the ceremony via the suit hire company, Lucky we got married in the morning and they were still open!!
To win a copy of Boomerang Bride, a signed postcard and a boomerang magnet, please tell me a funny wedding story…it might be yours or from a wedding you attended or perhaps it’s a family story handed down over the generations. I’d love to hear it!
