Devastated by the death of her fiancée in a horrific accident, Marissa Temple needs time alone.
House sitting for her friend in a quaint little town is the answer to her prayers for solitude.
She vows never to fall in love again, but her handsome, persistent neighbour, Travis Johnson, has other ideas.
As the weeks pass, Marissa becomes torn between two loves; the one in the here and now, and the one in the hereafter.
I am a multi award-winning Australian author who has been published since 2003. I love to write women in jeopardy stories, and this often involves murders or stalking, or both. My female characters are always strong and feisty, and sometimes they save the men! I also write contemporary western romance, either with or without suspense elements. I’ve taught writing for many years, and have written several non-fiction books about writing. I’ve worked as an editor for publishers, coached writers one-on-one, and have appeared at writer's conferences in Australia and New Zealand. I have been married to my own real-life hero for 42 years. We have two grown children and six grandchildren. Our household would not be complete without our wonderful pets, which includes two elderly cats and our beautiful dog Bindy, who loves long, leisurely walks. We are also fostering a puppy, who will ultimately go to an Autism school. My hobbies are tenpin bowling and papercrafts, and surprisingly, going to the gym.
