-3 words to describe yourself.


-3 people you would like to thank. 
Kate Cuthbert, Escape Publishing’s Managing Editor, for allowing me a crazy-tight deadline when I said I wanted to share an Anzac Day story.

Nas Dean, my Escape Publishing editor, who challenged me to confront the raw emotions of Ivan and Rita in “Memories of Love”. Thanks, Nas J

Danielle Maaitt, who I’ve never met, but who has provided stunning covers for all my Escape stories. Lady, I owe you!

 -1 sentence to describe your book.
In the tough times, you’re mates are there for you.

Excerpt:   Memories of Love.

“We’ll contain the fire, but we can’t save your house.”

Rita nodded. Part of her had been mourning it since she stumbled out of bed. There would be no recovering from this. Her mobile rang and she blinked to realise she still held it.

It was instinct to answer.

“Rita, I need you to come into the office. An emergency.” Ivan Novak, her boss, owner and chief executive officer of Tamerlane Security.

Late night calls were always emergencies.

Rita cleared her throat, feeling the harsh pain of the smoke she’d swallowed. “Ivan.”

“Did I wake you?” A touch of amusement lightened his voice. “You sound croaky.”

“My house is on fire.”


Heads turned as his voice exploded from the mobile.

A Snippet about Jenny:

  1. Thank you so much for the chance to visit, guys. Loved it!

    1. It was our pleasure, Jenny.

      By the way I really enjoyed reading, "Memories of Love".

      Without giving anything away, Ivan is one special guy, but I really felt for poor Rita.

      Hope you'll visit us again in the future.

    2. Thanks, AP :)

      and re visiting again -- just try and stop me!

  2. Ooh, this seems like a must read after that snippet! Exciting....

    1. I hope so! Writing it was a breathless adventure. I knew the story, but I had to get it down in time to make an April release date.

  3. I've got Memories of Love on my To Be Bought pile (the one that goes after the To Be Read pile!) I think Veronica Scott is right. I'm adding this story to my kindle Jenny :) Thanks for popping in - was lovely to see you here.

    1. The House on Burra Burra Lane is on my To Be Bought pile, Jennie! I can't wait! Now if people would stop writing must-read books, I could tame my To Be Read pile :)
