Barbara Strickland is currently living in Sydney and finding it a big change from the hot and humid north. More changes coming including a chance to teach in the area she loves, and hopefully a print copy of her romance. Teaching English as a second language coincides with her love of travel. Fortunate enough, to have three grown-up children who encourage her to express herself, she is free to follow her dreams. More travel one day but at present she is more likely found working on her Unexpected Series where she combine her love of romance with the places she has seen. She has four ambitions, to publish h

I often miss the warmth and laughter and family overload that is being Italian. I would bask in all of that and absorb the lilt of the language and the divine aroma of the food.
However in saying that I have quite a few favourite authors and I would enter their world simply because of the incredible men they create lol.(less)

This part of Africa is colourful, exciting and very different and though I originally had doubts, the experience turned out to be one of the best in my travelling life, and surprisingly safe.
One night though, the second last of our week there, my group and I went out for dinner. We decided as a group which included males (five in all), to go for a walk before heading back to our hotel and walk off what had been a veritable feast. One minute there were lots of people surrounding us and then the numbers got fewer and fewer. It was still very well lit, and it was a pleasant enough area, quite pretty really so we weren't at all worried. I was laughing at something someone had said when I got a feeling that actually froze me to the spot. I felt the colour leave my face. My stomach went queasy and it was all I could do, to get words out. I told my friends we had to go home there and then, that very moment. The strange thing was no-one argued. It was something about the way I looked that made them do exactly what I said. We turned and retraced our steps back to the restaurant and went back to the hotel.
To this day I wonder what would have happened if we had continued. A plot or not, that is an interesting question. I'm not sure I want the answer, even an imaginary one.(less)

This blog post I am thrilled to be doing something different, and presenting a piece on Australian Jill Staunton, author of Reivers Moon, a beautiful read which I thoroughly recommend. I haven’t known Jill long, but what I know I like, particularly her passion for the land. It is inspiring.

 

Generally, I am not a big rural fan, but I will read the odd one here and there. I do however like to r...

Fun

I read a few contradicting reviews about this and was a little worried. I went on instinct and bought the book anyway and found a fun read with lots of unexpected improbable adventures and a whole lot of falling in love. A lovely read.

Good reading

This was very good if frustrating reading. I love the series and the story line, and the characters are all so appealing but the Raven and Christian twists keep the reader wanting more and wanting it sooner rather than later.
