Cold nights, hot soup…

One of the family favourites in our house is a big pot of chicken and vegetable soup, served with a side of freshly baked cheese and herb scones…though, you may call them ‘biscuits’ in the U.S?

Well, no matter what you call them,31301581_10211307745154887_4172069398710520473_n they sure hit the spot on a cold winter’s night!

Crazy Costume Lady…

Many might know me from various RWA Conferences as the Crazy

Costume Lady, and for this, I make no apology for my love of historical clothing, accessories and way of life.

I am very fortunate to have an extremely talented mother who creates the most incredible historical gowns for me…and, all I have to do is provide copious amounts of tea and toast during the process!

One of the reasons I like to wear the gowns is they give me a true sense of what is was like to live in them everyday, and helps me to ‘keep it real’ in my books. Sure, we all love fiction, but I try to keep it believable and factual where i can, as well as entertaining.

I confess I’m a bit of a hussy, and have been known to show off my ‘unmentionables’ to anyone who asks to see them. Yes, when in

costume I try to wear everything…right down to the under garments!

In the garden…

Like most people, I find it hard to make time for everything. But, one of my joys is to find myself in the garden – particularly the vege patch!22687993_10210097137730458_8569155265837765975_n

I can’t tell you how much I enjoy watching seedlings grow and flower, then produce all kinds of fruits and vegetables for the family to eat. I confess, some years have been better than others, as we are all reliant on the whims of the weather around us.

Being in the Blue Mountains of Australia, we are used to a fairly wide variety of fruits and veges, but I’m always fascinated when trying new kinds during my travels. Have you ever tried a Durian? That fruit is an experience in itself!

I’d love to see some pics of your home gardens – flowers, fruit or veges!

…Oh, and I can’t forget the chooks!

Food glorious food…

Hi Everyone,22886036_10210115104299611_2394501882417872268_n

If anyone knows me, then they’ll know how much I love food and love to cook!

I’d like to say i’m a TV chef, but no, just a mum with three very hungry sons and one tubby hubby.

I’ll be posting up my latest ‘creations’…some good, some not so good, but all-in-all quite edible.

I’ll also be sharing some some photos of amazing foods from my travels around locally and the world!

If you share my love of food, feel free to email me a pic of your favourite dish and I’ll post it on my blog.

Welcome to Scotland…

Back in 2013, I went on my very first trip to the UK. As a writer of English and Celtic romance, you can imagine how excited I was. The odd thing though, was when I got to Scotland it seemed they were having the hottest summer in decades. So, the good part was I got to see almost everything I had hoped for, but was kind of lacking the ‘miserable weather ambience’ everyone had promised me.

After all, what’s Scotland without a little fog, mist and rain?
