Starting From Now edits

What a great day to spend in front of the fire, editing the next book for you all. Starting from Now will be out in November and this has been an awesome fun book to write, albeit slightly controversial… It’s cold and windy outside and we’ve had a beautiful, and much needed 40mm of rain…

Sneek peek

I’m sure you all know that Where the River Runs is coming very soon! 1st of November in fact. About six weeks time. BUT… Here’s your chance to be first to read a sampler of Where the River Runs. YAY! I loved writing this story about Chelsea and her beautiful daughter Aria. If you like…

#Fleurreads

It’s been ages since I’ve been able to read. I’m not sure why, because it was my favourite of pastimes. I started to find it hard when I was under a lot of pressure; looking after a sick family member, then my marriage breakdown, so on and so forth! I found I had a distinct…

Funny writing spots

I’ve always said I can write anywhere. With a deadline looming (as they always seem to!) and having to take our exchange student back to Perth to fly home to Italy, I’ve proved again, I can do just that. On Thursday we left to do a ‘last tour’ of the south west, so Gabri got…

Where the River Runs

Today, Where the River Runs, goes to print. This book feels like it’s been a mammoth effort – I was supposed to have it finished a long time before I actually handed the manuscript in… There was a reason!   On the 29th of December I was leaning down to pull up a fence so…

Fool’s Gold

Here’s the blurb: Written with Fleur’s trademark warmth and outstanding storytelling, newly badged Detective Dave Burrows and his reluctant wife arrive…

Times, they are a-changin’

Meet Jack. He’s the new addition to the McDonald household. He’s a gorgeous, energetic, five year old Kelpie from Woonwooring Kelpies at Cunderdin. Why, might you ask, does someone who lives in town and writes books for a living, need a Kelpie? And that would be good question because Kelpies need space to run around…

A new book

  It’s been so long since I’ve written here, I’ve almost forgotten what I have to do! I guess I should apologise. My life has been tipped upside down in the last six months and both the kids and I have had some huge adjustments to make. We plan on making 2015 the best year…

When the words don’t come

I suffer terribly from writers block. With each passing book it has got worse. I used to think it was because I didn’t have time to write, to immerse myself in the book and live the characters. I would write in snatches and there would be days that I could write really well and lots…

More changes

  There’s a saying that goes something like: ‘There is nothing more contestant than change’. Especially when it comes to book titles! This new book I’m writing has had quite a few. It started off as Emerald Bluff, which I really loved – the play on words (deceive) and the images a wild rock face…

Secrets revealed!

I’m planning on telling a big secret in this post. As a disclaimer, neither my parents, nor my children should read it! The dreaded Naplan will be held next week. When I say ‘dreaded’ it isn’t like that in our house, but I know it is at plenty of other peoples places. Neither of the…
