    Congratulations on the new publication. I love stories related to bushrangers and ironically I have a second cousin who lives in California and her name is Aurora so I’m definitely going to have to read this beauty

    Happy Release Day!!! I absolutely love Australian history, especially the gold rush period. My favourite read so far is ‘The Dark Dream’ which I reread every 3 months. I can not wait to get my hands on this one.
    Thank you for writing your books, it gives me the opportunity to immerse myself in history.

    As a relatively new Australian, I enjoy reading Australian fiction. I love the fact that your parents’ bakery was still functioning in Dunolly when you returned for your research trip. I’m sure The Road to Ironbark will be a success.

    Congratulations on the new release. I love the sound of this tale and am intrigued to see the mystery solved. Historical Australian fiction appeals to me so I will be adding this to my list of ‘to be read’ books.

    Just read the excerpt and really want to read more of this. After living in Charleville for several years, and volunteering at the Cobb & Co museum, I loved hearing all about its history.
    Love your stories set in the Australian outback. Growing up in the country, it is part of you, and never leaves you. Go back regularly to visit relatives, but not the same. So love reading about it all the time. Loved Sweet Wattle Creek especially.
    Thank you for your work, keeping us entertained, especially in this year of craziness. Although I haven’t had any time to read, being teacher/librarian, have been at work the whole time.

Leave a comment - we love hearing from you
