Amy Andrews | 2 comments HI - just discovering this fab discussion!
Like Sarah Mayberry I'd have to its fantastic to say I'm an Australian Woman Writer!!

I've written 28 harlequin's under Amy Andrews but a few days ago saw the release of Sister Pact (by Ali Ahearn and Ros Baxter) a tandem novel I wrote with my sister and is published by Harper Collins. We've already had some good reviews and we had a sold out launch!! Our website is www.sisterlit.com

Erin | 7 comments Run to Me by Erin Golding

Hi everyone! I'm Erin. I was born and raised in Central NSW, but I've been living in London for the last 7 years. I still call Australia home though! :-)

I am a writer, Reiki healer and film lover. I'm new to self-publishing. My debut novel 'Run to Me' is a dual narrative set in a fictional Australian town. 'Run to Me' is available on Kindle, and as a paperback edition at Feedaread.com.

I blog about writing and spirituality at http://www.healingscribe.com. And I also have a movie blog at http://www.backtothefilm.com.

Leigh K Cunningham Hi everyone, I'm Leigh K. Cunningham and I've recently released my latest title, Being Anti-Social. It's 'chick-lit' and a much lighter read than my previous title, Rain. I will have an Australia-only give-away shortly, as soon as Being Anti-Social is available to print/distribute in Australia.

Lisa McKay (lisamckaywriting) | 5 comments Hi all, I'm very excited to announce that my second book, a memoir, Love At The Speed Of Email, released yesterday.

Love At The Speed Of Email  by Lisa McKay

Here's the synopsis: "Lisa looks as if she has it made. She has turned her nomadic childhood and forensic psychology training into a successful career as a stress management trainer for humanitarian aid workers. She lives in Los Angeles, travels the world, and her first novel has just been published to some acclaim. But as she turns 31, Lisa realizes that she is still single, constantly on airplanes, and increasingly wondering where home is and what it really means to commit to a person, place, or career. When an intriguing stranger living on the other side of the world emails her out of the blue, she must decide whether she will risk trying to answer those questions. Her decision will change her life."
