Jenn J McLeod loves ticking things off her bucket list. So far she’s made that sea change, run that country B&B, and written that bestseller. In 2014, Jenn downsized her life and home is now a 3-tonne, 25-foot caravan named Myrtle the Turtle.

With her Seasons Collection of four novels already adored by readers, Australia’s nomadic novelist is finding inspiration for more heart-warming small town tales of friendship, family, and contemporary country life.

Book #6 - House of Wishes is going back to Calingarry Crossing. Join me.

Other titles: House for all Seasons (#5 Top Selling Debut Novel), Simmering Season, Season of Shadow and Light, and The Other Side of the Season. Her fifth novel is A Place to Remember.

What a year! The good and the bad of 2019.

From my house to yours… I hope you are enjoying the festive season. For me, 2019 has been a year of ticking off big bucket list items, including swinging through the Daintree Rainforest dressed as Lara Croft (says so on my helmet!) and swimming on the Great Barrier Reef with sharks and sea turtles.

My first comment is, for a debut novelist, the plot line was a brave choice, expertly executed and so engaging. I’d been hoping to find a book I could fall into and be carried along effortlessly; I wanted to journey somewhere beautiful.

“Sorry, Will, bad habit of mine. You have to stress hot in the city these days. Some places have absolutely no idea how to make a decent long black.' And there she was being all uppity slutty again.”

“Openness and acceptance give victims help and hope, don’t you think?’ John’s nod said he agreed. ‘They let them know there are options. Forty years ago I had no such outlet and innocence is quickly lost when a child experiences violence in the one place they need to feel safe.”
