Fenced-In Felix

Felix comes galloping in

fenced-in-felix-medium-coverFelix comes galloping in today, on general release just in time for the hot Australian summer. After all, when it’s stinking hot outside,  what’s better than reading about the dust and burning sun and wide, red landscapes of the interior of Australia. Or if you’ve just had first snowfall, or you’re sitting and looking at the rain sheeting down, a little bit of sunshine could be just the thing, like a cold beer on a shady veranda.

There’s cold beer and verandas in Felix. There’s also campfires, wild gallops along dry creek beds, a glorious chestnut mare, old friends revisited, and two main characters who are very different personalities but share a love of horses and the outback life.

 

Fenced-In Felix is available now from Ylva Publishing and from other retailers including:

Amazon.com:

Amazon.co.uk

Amazon.com.au

Smashwords

I hope you’ll check her out.

Fenced-In Felix

fenced-in-felix-medium-coverHappy 16 November, folks.  The date doesn’t mean anything to you? Well, maybe it’s your birthday (happy birthday), or anniversary, or the day you managed to eat oysters without closing your eyes and not thinking about them sliding their way down  your gullet all alive alive oh.

To me, 16 November means that the third book in my “Girl Meets Girl” series, Fenced-In Felix is here and available.  That’s Felix above, on the left side of the cover, with her salt-and-pepper plait and serious face. And that’s her love-interest, Josie, on the right side with her wild hair and string of beads and big happy smile. And below is Josie’s horse, Flame, in an outback landscape. But is she Josie’s horse?

I am not a city person

20160427_062356I am so not a city person. Sure, I’ve spent a lot of my life in cities–work has a way of doing that to you–but equally, I’ve lived in small towns, medium towns, and spent a lot of time on the road travelling. But where I’m happiest, in a zen-at-one with-the-world, embracing-the-landscape sort of way, is where things are hot and dry and there’s not many people. The space. The dryness. The sweep of stars at night. Being able to see to the horizon and then some.

Many people seem to get that from the sea. But unless you’re on the ocean in a small boat, coastal areas around the world tend to be some of the most populated. And it is my nightmare to be stuck on a small boat with a bunch of people and nowhere to escape. I’m not that good a swimmer.
