I’m so thrilled with the wonderful reviews I’ve received for Bride of Gold, book one in the Passion Down Under Series.

What Sparked This Story Idea?

The idea for this story was sparked when I inherited a painting from my aunt—the sister that my father never knew existed. My father was abandoned by his mother into the care of a private boarding school when he was only four-years-old.

Needless to say, he grew into a very self-reliant man. When he was in his 70’s he received a letter from a woman in her 80’s telling him she was his half-sister, and requesting that they meet. They shared the same dad, but different mothers.They got along famously—but sadly she passed away a few years later, and soon afterward my father did too.

It struck me as incredibly sad that they had not met earlier. I wondered why my dad’s mother had never told him about his sister. I wondered why his father never told him either. Later, I began to notice and read similar stories of people, some famous, other’s not, who found out as adults, that the people they thought were their fathers or mothers, weren’t.

I began to think about all the secrets many families have. The lies they tell each other. And all the lost loves.

And I wondered, what if two people were attracted to each other but trust issues kept them apart? What if a painting had the power to bring them together, to shed healing light on the secrets of the past? And what if a painting had the power to rekindle lost love?

And I wondered, what would it take, in spite of fear, anger, and distrust, for a man and a woman drawn together by tragedy, to open their hearts to love. You’ll discover the answers in Bride of Gold. I hope you love this story as much as I loved writing it.


Change ahead…

I’ve asked my cover designer to refresh the image—feel free to send me piccies or suggestions of covers you think would work.

I’m so proud to claim this book as an authentically New Zealand romance. I know so many of you love New Zealand authors and our beautiful country.
