Who We Are is LIVE on Amazon!

The nerves, the excitement...I'll never get used to this feeling. I hope you all enjoy Oliver and Sebastian's story as much as I enjoyed creating it!

Blurb:

Since putting his life on hold ten years ago, Oliver Clayton doesn’t know who he is anymore. To his clients at the hair salon, he’s the sassy and confident stylist. To the crowds who come to watch his drag act at the club, he’s the fierce and fabulous Miss Tique. He’s popular. Talented. Out, proud, and self-assured.

He’s also a good actor.

Sebastian Day is content with life’s easy, if not a little monotonous, routine. After several failed relationships, he likes the simplicity of being alone in his truck at his job as a heavy goods driver, spending the weekends with his teenage son, and putting the world to rights with his cat, Marv. He’s not lonely. He isn’t hiding.

At least…he doesn’t think he is until he meets the mesmerising stranger with the red hair and purple lips.

Can Oliver and Sebastian help each other embrace who they are? Or will a cruel twist of fate end their journey before it’s even begun?

**Counting Daisies is LIVE!**

Off you go, Cameron and Dylan. Time to fly the nest. I hope you love these guys as much as I do. Like Broken, this was a difficult one for me but for different reasons. I learned so much writing this story, things that made my heart hurt, things that made me see the world differently. And now here they are. It's time for you to meet them too!

You'll also get to meet Paul and Derek, who turned what was supposed to be a standalone book into the first book in a series! (Although Counting Daisies CAN still be read as a standalone.) Hopefully you'll understand when you meet them. These guys NEED a story. I couldn't help fall in love with them.

If you decide to take a chance on my new guys, THANK YOU! I hope you enjoy! <3

**Broken is LIVE, people!**

Soooo....I couldn't do it. I tried, I really did....but I couldn't hold out. I'm actually rather proud that I at least made it to release month, if not the right day 😃

Here they are. James and Theo, all grown up and ready to fly the nest. Take care of them for me!

I have a surprise for you…..**The Making of Matt is LIVE!**

I tried SO hard to hold out until release day, but I’ve never been known for my patience! I’m excited, nervous, and terrified all in one right now, but I’m going to use a quote from my acknowledgements which really sums up how I feel today:

So, I’ve had a rough year. I’ve been sick, I’ve been down, I’ve been a whiney-ass mare. This book took so much longer to write than I planned or expected, so if you’ve made it this far THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for sticking with me, for not forgetting about Matt.

There were times when I genuinely didn’t think I would write again. The author switch broke. I couldn’t concentrate. I didn’t want to concentrate. I disappeared from social media, I stopped writing, stopped reading, stopped thinking about the stories in my head.

You know what changed all that? My readers. Friends who I’ve never even ‘met’ in real life. People didn’t forget about me. They continued to message me. They emailed me. They cared about me. I crawled out of my hidey hole and posted a quick status on Facebook and I was overwhelmed with comments from people, readers, friends, who hadn’t forgotten about me.

As Matt’s mom would say, they made my heart smile.

I plucked my head out of my arse, cranked up my music, and took a pen to paper. I wrote just a couple of sentences. The next day a whole paragraph. A week later I’d written a chapter. I posted a teaser. People got excited. So I got excited. I could do this. I was doing it. And now, here we are. Matt has his story, and it’s my favourite one of all because this was the story that made me fall in love with writing again. It made me remember why I do it, reminded me of the all special people I have met, the friends I’ve made, and just how lucky I am to have so much support.

Thank you, ALL of you, from the bottom of my heart. I couldn’t have done this without you. Now, go get your Matt on while I hide in the corner! <3
