The summer of her fifteenth year

14 July 2014 One hundred years ago  today, restless and adventurous Rebecca Dalton turned fifteen in the midst of the most exhilarating summer of her life. There was Samuel, the astounding  shipwreck survivor. There was his sensational smile and his sunny voice. There was horse riding along Sable Island beach. And soon, there would be the […]

About Gene

Here’s a little bit about Evangeline — Gene, Samuel and Rebecca’s younger daughter. I thought you might like to know a little bit more about the girl who grows up to have her own epic adventurous love story in Come What May, Book 2 of The Iceberg Trilogy.

There were some common elements: young love battling […]

The stuff of dreams

  I have done some unforgettable kayaking and canoeing trips in my time, skimming across blue green prisms of water, trailing stunning coastlines and river banks, spying on nature in its quiet solitude. I remember one December sea-kayaking alongside Freycinet National Park in Tasmania; one moment we battled fierce headwinds as we tried to round […]

Must love wolves

  Anyone who has read Seldom Come By might get the sense that wolves have a special place in my heart. Some of my readers have asked how that came to be, given I grew up in rural Queensland, where the closest thing to a wolf was a TV cartoon series called: Cattanooga Cats. Do […]
