About this author

When I was very small, I had an aunt who would tell me the most wonderful fairy tales - all original. I grew up, as little girls do, but the magic of story still dazzles and enthralls me. On the good days, I like to think of myself as Scheherazade's sister. On the bad days - not so much.

I remain an incurable romantic who loves happy endings, heart-pounding adventure and the eventual triumph of good over evil. All hail the guys in the white hats - unless the ones wearing black are more...um...interesting?

I live in a comfortable, messy old house in the Australian suburbs. I'm small, noisy and tend to wave my hands around a lot, which can be unfortunate if the tale I'm telling happens to have explosions in it.


I'm visiting with the wonderful Romance Bandits today, talking about Good Guys and Bad Guys. I'd love you to join us - and there's a chance to win a copy of Guilty as Sin!
Click here for the Romance Bandits launch party for Guilty as Sin!

Keep well and happy!

Rackety Kate and the Pirates (Romance)
1 chapters   —   updated Feb 03, 2010 07:05AM
Description: A free story I write just for fun. Sexy, romantic and very, very silly. One chapter a month. In case you don’t know how it works… You and I are participating characters in these adventures, one every month. Cool, huh? By joining my newsletter list, - https://app.expressemailmarketing.com/Survey.aspx?SFID=79564 - you get to make the decisions about our heroine’s love life (via a Yahoo Poll), and you receive each chapter a month in advance of the website. Majority rules and our girl does what she’s told. Though I have a funny feeling about Kate…I play god(dess) which pushes all my evil-type buttons, and sometimes newsletter readers get to create characters and situations. It’s all good healthy wicked fun and occasionally, there are prizes. Oh, and lots of hot, kinky sex. Yeah!At the end of every newsletter chapter, you usually find three choices or a contest question with prizes.

Hey, thanks for the wonderful review, Angela. I sooo appreciate that you would take the time and trouble not only to write something positive, but to explain why you enjoyed the book.

As for another story - I have a set of characters in my head already, kicking and screaming to get out. Hopefully, after The Dark Rose is finished...
