I'm an Australian author and my debut novel, Deadly Secrets is available in both paperback and eBook format. I've had several short stories published, one in the anthology, When Stars Will Shine, another in the anthology, Fledglings, by Birdcatcher Books and three in The Writers' and Readers' Magazine, Sept/Oct 2020, Jan 2020 & Oct 2019. I'm currently polishing my second novel, another political conspiracy mystery/thriller, while the beginnings of a third novel are sitting in the bottom drawer awaiting my attention.

Whenever I get a bit stuck I find I can go back over what I've written and that starts the creative juices flowing again. The other activity that helps is going for a walk along the beachfront near where I live.

It can be a consuming process, and I often lose track of time as I write.
I also love being part of such a great community. Writers are supportive of one another and I have had enormous help as I navigated my way through publication.
Of course, connecting with readers who have enjoyed my book, and reading their reviews is also great. (less)
