Welcome to my first blog.

Well, I thought i better start with how and when i first found my love for romance writing.
It started like many others- It was 1995 and my then-boyfriend's mother handed down her beloved collection of romance novels like they were a secret family recipe. The first romance novel i ever read was published by Harlequin Mill&Boon. It was the most riveting book i had ever read. It took me on the most hottest, most sensual romantic journey, and i was hooked. Maybe she was giving me some kind of hint , most likely, since i married some one else- but that's another story.
So, two years on and an ever growing collection of romance novels, i got the writing bug. I was just seventeen.
Which brings me back to my gorgeous husband, who i have been with since i was sixteen. He has supported my dream through four children, one cat, four dogs, two fish and of course me.
He has been my rock. (love you honey)
But my support squad does not stop there, as i have a great writing pal , Suzanne who is an inspiration to me and great a butt kicker when i need it. Thanks suz.
Together we met when Mid Coast Critique Group was formed with the backing of Romance Writers Australia of which I'm a proud member, they are a wealth of information.
Well, i think it would be time for me to get back to work. I have a ms (my baby) that has been sitting for months that i now feel i can edit it with honesty and harshness and fix my mistakes. Eek, there are many.
So, I'll say goodbye for now.
happy writing
