When I started this blog, I’d written a number of novels – romance, romantic suspense, a fantasy and a thriller – but my only publication credits were a couple of poems and short fiction (long ago). Last year, a romance novel I wrote fifteen years ago was accepted by Escape and Snowy River Man, was released in February 2015 under the pen-name, Lizzy Chandler. My second romance novel, another manuscript from my bottom drawer, is due out in December.
This year, I’ve been more of a reader than a writer, devoting attention to books for the Australian Women Writers Challenge, a challenge I established in 2012 to help overcome gender bias in the reviewing of books by Australian women. I’m still hoping to write and publish something with a degree of literary merit. In the meantime, I’ll make do with reading the brilliant offerings of my fellow Australian writers, some of whose work is reviewed here.
