I write family saga/romance books.

My books include the Belleville series – Julia's Story, To Love, Honour and Betray and Return to Prior Park – the story of a wealthy Australian family whose young daughter falls hopelessly in love with a US Army doctor stationed in Australia during WWII.

Where did the idea spring from for the trilogy? From stories my father told me of American soldiers stationed near our home town in Queensland during the war.

I recently gave up my job as a magazine publisher to concentrate my attention on my first love – writing fiction.

Want to check out the Belleville trilogy before you commit?

I wonder how many authors get asked this question? Is your book based on a real person?

And in fact some great fictional heroes have become so real to the reading public, they are treated as if they are real.

Think Hercule Poirot, proudly claimed by the Belgians. Or Sherlock Holmes. Or in more recent times, Ian Rankin’s creation Inspector Rebus, who, aged in rea...
