Today's author blog challenge is My Publishing Journey #LifeBooksWriting
Where do I begin? My journey has been a slow, steady crawl for the last 18 years!  In my early twenties, I had the sudden, overwhelming urge to write the story in my head that wouldn't leave me alone. It was such a strong sense of  'do it' that I began with pen and paper so that I at least could outline the story and get it out of my head.  What I didn't expect was for the story to grow and morph into a full sized novel!  Without a computer, I drove an hour away to purchase a Word Processor so I could type out my story and keep it stored on a floppy disc.  The process awoke something inside of me that had been lying dormant since early childhood. I'd always been a book addict and I think the desire to write became an extension of that.  With a finished story written, I was able to print it out on a family member's computer so that I could begin the tedious task of mailing it out to tr…

The story is set in Hobart, the capital of Tasmania, the most southern state in Australia. A most beautiful place. I went there a few years back and imagined how it would be to live in this city, how to adapt as a "non-local", and bit by bit I wrote the story of two sisters moving there. Obviously, I added a little romance into the story as well – so I added Mark and Zach. This is the second edition of NEW BEGINNINGS. The story is now a bit sexier and has also received another edit.
Literary Chanteuse's review: "This author has a way of endearing her characters and it is easy to fall in love with them. An intriguing story with emotion, love and hope." Sharon's review:"This was a very enjoyable read and it left me wanting just a little bit more. I highly recommend it."
"Other people have to fight battles in their life as well."

#LifeBooksWriting - Author blog challenge  Hello everyone! Welcome to another week and another blog challenge. This week is Things I collect. Apart from books, I also collect stamps and coins.  I've been collecting stamps since I was a child. My mother is a collector too and got me started by giving me my first bundle. I have 4 albums of stamps from all over the world. 
Many I have been given and others I have had to purchase. I still collect some from letters I receive with stamps, although not so much now in this digital age.
I also collect coins, which began after my trip from Australia to the US when I was 18. From there I have collected more and more. The oldest coin I have is from the 1920's. The image below is just some of my collection. 
Finally my books. Well what can I say?The photo is also just a small collectiion of my books! I have so many I don't know what to do with. Not to mention my kindle and kobo!

My Dream Writing Space #LifeBooksWriting Today's challenge #LifeBooksWriting is My Dream Writing Space. At present my dream writing space would be a room with a desk! I currently writing on the spare bed on my laptop while lying semi-horizontal, propped up on pillows! Yep, quite a few of my novels have been constructed this way. However...it's not the ideal writing conditions so, my dream writing space would be...... A room with a view appeals to me. The space doesn't have to be huge, just efficient. Shelves on both walls for all my books and dictionaries. A comfortable chair and adequate desk space. A room that is totally dedicated to my writing. A sanctuary!
