Horrible News for a Happy Halloween

I promised horrible news for Halloween and horrible it shall be. Nightmarish and evil, yet necessary… Worst news first, right? The MOST horrible news concerns my horror thriller Nightmares trilogy. Any news involving Nightmares is bound to be horrible by

Nothing Beats Seeing Your Name in an Old-School Print Newspaper

Water and Fire is set in the Western Australian country town of Albany, so it seemed quite fitting that I send a copy of the media release about my book’s launch date to the Albany Advertiser. One of the newspaper’s

Men Should Never Go Lingerie Shopping – Seven #SexySnippets on #MySexySaturday

A taste of the horribly sexy for Halloween. Some men should never go lingerie shopping – and no, size isn’t the issue: Pink and patterned, the swell of skin above them like the top of a tight-fitting corset. Pink like

The Tastiest Transgender Fish in the Sea

In each hand, she held a fish by the gills. One was a small shark, the other some sort of fish with a white chin and fangs. I swallowed a couple of times before I could speak. “Been fishing?” “My

Meg Cabot, Demelza Carlton and Marian Keyes – or How My Books Became Bestsellers Again

A couple of weeks ago, I was shocked to discover my book, Nightmares of Caitlin Lockyer, on the Top 100 Bestseller List with Dean Koontz and Stephen King. For it to happen once to just one of my books was

Debbie Does the Houtman Abrolhos – Seven #SexySnippets

Joe’s settling in for his first night in a fishing shack at the Houtman Abrolhos Islands, checking out his entertainment options: They all seemed to be holiday videos, from someone called Debbie who went to the US. I stuck one of

Good Girls Don’t Drink Whisky Straight

Good girls don’t…hahaha…even saying that line in the video had me cracking up. Good girls can get away with drinking whatever they like and they make it look good, too. For those who don’t know, I spend a fair bit

Dean Koontz, Demelza Carlton and Stephen King

It’s not a likely listing – especially with me in the middle of those two highly successful horror suspense authors, but it happened. On Amazon’s Top 100 Bestseller List. In real life. I could be cryptic and incoherent (admittedly, I

The Mysterious Midwife – Belinda from Water and Fire

Some characters stay with you forever – and some you wish you could forget. Some slowly grow on you as you get to know them. As a reader, my favourite characters are those who do grow on me as their

Revelations: Authors Who Design Their Own Covers

Authors should never design their own covers, just like they can’t ever single-handedly edit their own work. I learned this one a year ago with Ocean’s Gift. If you want the full, shameful story (it’s called Big Boys Like Pink),
