Memories of Love Release Day

What does Anzac Day mean to me? was where I started Memories of Love, the short romance releasing today from Escape Publishing. I wanted to write a story that celebrated the day.

For non-Aussies, Anzac Day (25 April) is the day we honour those who fought and died for our country and for peace. But at the heart of the day is a celebration of mateship. In the tough times, we are there for one another.

I didn’t want to write a war story, but I knew I couldn’t run away from writing about grief, heartbreak and hope. I wanted to write about hope — and love.

Memories Of Love_Final


In a style reminiscent of Robyn Carr, an intensely emotional story about taking chances and risking your heart.

When her family home burns down, it’s the final heartbreak for Rita Jorden who has already lost her parents. Her boss, former SAS captain and head of Tamerlane Security, Ivan Novak, steps in, offering her his home and his help. But Ivan has his own demons, and although he’s interested in Rita, there’s darkness in his past that could cause her harm. Thrown together into a situation that’s too close for comfort, this story can only end in one of two ways: in the destruction of Rita’s dreams of love — or the gift of healing and hope to two damaged survivors.

I’d like to say a heartfelt thank you to Nas Dean, my editor at Escape Publishing, who believed in Rita and Ivan’s story, and challenged me to tell it from the heart — no glossing over the rawness of their emotions. As always, the entire Escape team has been awesome. Thank you, guys! A special shout-out to Danielle Maaitt for the most perfect cover. The Escape Artists (fellow authors) all deserve extra chocolate (okay, maybe not on Easter Monday *groans* but I’ll save it!) for their ongoing support, silliness and simply being themselves and making me welcome.

To the readers and reviewers who energise me with your enthusiasm — thank you!
