With the publishing process of my romance novel A Southern Star taking shape, I can concentrate on my draft manuscript for my next romance novel A Forgotten Sky, which is set mainly in Otago, New Zealand. It’s been great bringing a fictional country town to life, imagining the characters, the social settings and of course the romance between Daniel and Marina, the hero and heroine! Ranfurly, Moa Creek, The Ida Valley and Oturehua, all against the background of summer in the Maniototo… anyway, you’ll able to read all about it in A Forgotten Sky. Readers who are locals from the area will realise the title is a reference to the vastness of the sky when viewed from the Maniototo plains – where nothing can compare to an endless summer twilight. Contact me at to let me know what you think of the locations!
