An abiding interest in astronomy and a deep-seated need to always see the good guys win naturally influences her writing. Not satisfied with the amount of romance in science fiction novels she set out to redress the balance.
She currently lives in sunny South East Queensland, Australia, with her husband and Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, who doesn’t seem to realize she comes from royalty and should act in a more appropriate manner.

Getting Published – The End of One Journey, the Beginning of the Next.
Thank you to the Romance Book Paradise ladies for hosting me. J Becoming published appears to those yet to be published as the ‘Holy Grail’. At least that’s how it seemed to me. Since becoming published I’ve come to realise that reaching that goal is like reaching a train station. Publication was simply the destination for that journey.
Now I’ve reached train station ‘Published’, I’ve discover there are more routes to travel. Now there is promotion. Now there is the next book to write.
Unless you’re extraordinarily lucky, the royalty from your first book will not be enough on which to make a living. Accept that your book/s may not appeal to a lot of people or that it may take time, years even, to reach the attention of people who will find your work fascinating.
As ever, don’t give up! Keep writing so that when your books strike the right note, you’ll have a backlist for your hungry fans to devour.
So when you reach train station ‘Published’, go to the cafeteria and celebrate! They have wine, chocolate, French pastries, you name it. Enjoy your success at attaining this goal then set your mind to your next journey.
