I am a mad keen traveller. Paris will always be one of my top spots, and I fell in love with Scotland when we visited the west coast (it had nothing to do with the fine single malts), but I only recently had my first real trip to Italy — tick off one of my ‘bucket list’ items! I’ve celebrated New Year in Kathmandu and trekked in the Annapurnas, sailed in Ha Long Bay on a junk, and stayed on a floating hotel beside a tethered elephant in Thailand. I love the Peak in Hong Kong and the cable car ride in Singapore. My fictional heroes have to be pretty special to live up to the real-life one who saved my life then married me. We live on the edge — of bushland and a mountain in beautiful sunny Queensland, Australia, with our two children and two dogs. I write contemporary romance novels set in exciting and often exotic locations.
