• Touch the Lightning release day! Storm Boys Series is now complete!


    Thank you to everyone who has joined Tully and Jeremiah on this crazy adventure!


    Without a working office, Jeremiah is tasked with repairing the automated weather station on Oxley Island. It’s remote, only accessible by boat, and with there being a good chance of crocodiles, he’s dreading it.

    Tully, on the other hand, can’t wait.

    With a boat licence, his dad’s boat, and two days alone with Jeremiah—and with thunderstorms likely—to Tully, it’s another perfect adventure.

    But their plans go awry when Jeremiah’s research gets far too close for comfort. Thirty years ago, the day his life was touched by lightning, he was changed forever.

    It’s about to change again, only this time he’s determined to set things right.


    You can find Touch The Lightning HERE

    or check out the whole Storm Boys Series HERE



    I’ve been playing around with some illustrated covers lately, and when I had some character illustrations done for Tully and Jeremiah, I loved them so much I asked the artist (the very talented Christine Marie) if we could make them into covers… and she said yes! The original covers (made by Paper & Sage) are just as gorgeous, and all editions will start appearing at your favourite retailer soon – if not already.

    I’ll provide the Amazon links for ease/speed but if you have another preferred retailer, please give the title plus ‘alternative cover’ a quick search in their search function.

  • Cover Reveal for Second Chance at First Love


    Second Chance at First Love is coming May 23rd





    Paul Morgan has been running his luxury camping tour business in Kakadu National Park for the last five years. Taking small groups glamping, hiking, climbing, and swimming. It’s been a busy five years, a hard five years, as he tried to forget the man he left behind.
    Derek Grimes pushes people away—a self-preservation reflex. Because they can’t break his heart if he breaks theirs first, right? Five years on, lost and lonely, he tracks down the one and only love of his life. Maybe seeing how Paul had moved on will help Derek move on too . . .
    Paul can’t believe it when a familiar name pops up on his client list, and Derek can’t believe how good Paul looks, or just how happy living his dream job has made him. The spark between them never waned, but five years on, they’ve learned a few things about themselves and what they want.
    They could have everything they ever dreamed of—if they’re prepared to trust each other. Because a second chance at first love comes but once in a lifetime.


    There are four books in this series. The prequel, and three main books.  The prequel is Derek and Paul’s story. The other three books are Tully and Jeremiah’s story. The audiobooks are being narrated by Glen Lloyd.


    You can pre-order all books now!



    Sorry for this blog being mostly inactive. I have a newsletter (that I also suck at updating LOL) but I feel to update both together is a bit spammy. I only send newsletters with news on new releases or super sales; sometimes months apart.

  • FREEBIE ALERT! One Day Only…

    Point of No Return is 10 years old today!

    This book has been through a lot: two different publishers, many covers, many editions. I finally got the rights back and had new forever-covers made in 2017… it seems like a lifetime ago.

    Matt and Kira were my first original fiction boys that I ever wrote. I fully intended to write another fanfiction but these boys in my head were new to me and had their own story to tell. And I’d had many fanfic readers telling me I should write original fiction – so I did.

    And Matt and Kira were born.

    Ten whole years ago. What a crazy ride it’s been.

    For their 10th birthday, I wanted to share this book with everyone. It will be free for ONE DAY ONLY!

    And it’s already the 28th in Australia so grab it now! 

    Oh, and it’s whispersynced for audio – so if you love audio, grab it while it’s super cheap. Narrated by Sean Crisden, and he did an amaaaazing job.




    To celebrate Asexual Awareness Week, Upside Down is just 99c (based on Amazon USD, sorry). It’ll be back to full price by Monday so be quick to grab it!




  • Learning Curve is OUT NOW!



    I’m so excited to have Vincent and Cobey out in the world! The reception has really blown me away – Learning Curve went to #1 in 10 countries within 24 hours of release! And it went to #6 in the entire Australia Amazon store, and #8 in the entire Canadian store. Just craaaazy!!

    I sent out the newsletter with the buylinks in it last week, and I’ll add them here now. I really hate the idea of over-spamming people and the idea of sending a newsletter AND a blog post makes me feel extra spammy LOL  So I’m sorry if you’re getting both.

    But I didn’t want my blog readers to miss out.

    There are also two different versions of paperbacks available!


    You can choose from either the standard pink cover which matches the ebook, or you can choose the special edition illustrated cover!  The internal content is exactly the same. We just thought it would be a fun inclusion for the series – and both covers turned out amazing! As you can see from this photo I took, both covers are faaaabulous!

    May be an image of 1 person and book


    You can find them at Amazon, or check your favourite online retailer. These were distributed through IngramSpark and therefore will be appearing soon at stores like B&N, Target Online, and Walmart Online (not in-store) and most other book retailers. These links are to amazon:




    Okay that’s all for today! I hope everyone has been keeping well 🙂  I’ll be at a book signing in Melbourne this coming weekend, which I’m most excited about. Then I need to hide in my writing cave for a while and finish my current WIP. Please take care, and stay safe!

    Until next time…

  • Code Red is just 99c!


    You can also grab the audio at a reduced price as well! But it’s only for this week so be quick 🙂



    Maddox Kershaw is the main vocalist of the world’s biggest boy band. He’s at the top of every music chart, every award show, every social media platform, and every sexiest-man-alive list. He’s the bad boy, the enigma, the man everyone on the planet wants a piece of.

    He’s also burned out and exhausted, isolated and lonely. Not in a good headspace at the start of a tour.

    Roscoe Hall is Maddox’s personal manager. His job is high-flying, high-demand, high-profile, and he loves it. Maddox has consumed his entire life for the past four years. Roscoe knows him. He sees the real Maddox no one else gets to see.
    He’s also in love with him.

    When the tour and stress become too much, when the world begins to close in, Roscoe becomes Maddox’s lifeline. But as Maddox knows already, and as Roscoe is about to learn, the brighter the spotlight, the darker the shadow.



    I’m also very excited to tell you I’m taking part of a shared world! My book is LEARNING CURVE, the story of Cobey and Vincent. And check out Vincent on the cover!




    Cobey Green
    There I was, moving into the dorms at Franklin U, and not into the shared party house I’d lived in my freshman year. Last year had been all about football and parties, not schoolwork. Which was why my grades tanked, and why I was one failed class away from being kicked off the team.
    Why I needed to live on campus, and find myself a tutor.
    Funny that my new roommate just happened to be a tutor. Funny that he was oblivious to how hot he is. For a smart guy, he was pretty clueless. Maybe I could tutor him in how to be more outgoing in exchange for help with calculus? I could teach him how to talk to people, how to make new friends. Hell, maybe I could even help him punch his V card.
    Actually, now that I thought about it… that was a really good idea.

    Vincent Brandt
    And there I was, happy to be back at college, happy to be where I was most comfortable. Happy to be starting another school year, happy to start tutoring again so I could earn some money.
    And yes, there I was, equal parts excited and dreading to see who my new roommate would be… Until Cobey Green’s smiling face appeared at the door. A huge football player, loved by everyone, gorgeous, rich, and out of the closet.
    Everything I was not.
    It didn’t help that he was genuinely a really nice guy. It didn’t help that I could make him laugh, and we could talk so easily, and it certainly didn’t help that we started having private tutorials which ended up way more private than I’d ever dared imagine.
    I’d ranked top of my class in every subject since the first grade yet there I was falling stupidly in love with him.

    This was going to be a hell of a year. And one very steep learning curve for both of us.

    ~ * ~


    Eight books, eight couples, each book can be read as a stand alone. Set in a fictional Californian city, Franklin University is where it’s at.

    This shared college world is going to be SO MUCH FUN!! The amazing author line up includes Riley Hart, Saxon James, Louisa Masters, Neve Wilder, A.M. Johnson, Christina Lee, and Eden Finley.

    Starting August 25th, each book will release a week apart.

    A very quick update:

    I’ve been terribly slack with updates, and I apologise. Life’s been… busy. I do try and send newsletters once a month, but I feel that these blog posts are more personal. Just my opinion, of course! I think I’m old school haha

    I was very happy with the release of The Kite and how it was received. Thank you all for loving Harry and Asher! There has been a slight delay in the audiobook release but it will be out soon!

    My current WIP is at 40K words and should be out in September!

    I have two book signings coming up! One in Newcastle NSW (Book Boyfriends) in September and the other is Books In Sight Melbourne in October. I cannot wait to see my Aussie people again!

    Oh, and there is also this little gem…



    I’ll have more info on Learning Curve this shared-world it’s part of very soon!! Franklin University, eight books, all standalones, by eight amazing authors. I’m super excited!

    And I’m also working on some very special edition paperbacks. More news on that soooooon!! xx

  • $40 Amazon Giveaway for The Kite



    I’m very excited to announce that it’s release day for The Kite! It’s a 72,000-word romantic suspense. There are guns, espionage, murder, and swoony romance. Harry is grumpy, Asher is sunshine, and I loved writing this book so much! It’s a joy to write books that flex a creative muscle every now and then, and Harry and Asher are two very special characters to me. I hope you love them too!


    Ex-Australian Specialist Response Group leader, Tim “Harry” Harrigan, has been running covert ops for almost a decade. A lone wolf, he’s single-handedly taken down terrorists and national security threats, or so he thinks. He’s been in the game far too long, and when he sees a familiar threat, he knows his time is up.

    Asher Garin is a dangerous man. A man without loyalty, a man without a nationality, without a country, without a home. He’s also a mercenary for hire to the highest bidder. His next job is a face he recognises, and after a tip-off, he learns he too is a marked man.

    It’s a different game now, and Harry and Asher have a better chance at surviving if they stick together. But it’s not just the game or the rules that have changed. The stakes have too.

    Because on their own, they had nothing to lose. Together, they do.

    Now, about that giveaway…
