This is the beginning of my blog where you can dip into my travel diary and see my own photos of wildlife, scenery and places as well as read reviews of my favourite romance fiction including contemporary, historical and vintage stories. Nothing like a bit of escapism! My dog Crockett might weigh in from time to time so there’ll be updates from the animal world. Plus I’ll include writing tips, extras from A Southern Star and updates from my next romance novel. So I hope to provide you with a look inside the world of nature – and the world of my own books and others I enjoy reading. Thoughts, comments and opinions are always welcome – I can be contacted at . Right now, here are a few photos from my recent trip to Kakadu National Park, Northern Territory, Australia.
