The Vet from Snowy River, brought to you by Harlequin Fiction

Well - COVID did get in the way of in-person events, however we did manage a few. Thanks to Redland Libraries for having me for an author talk, and to Dymocks North Lakes for inviting me to visit. Chermside Library panel with Rachael Johns and Alli Blake on all things rural was a victim of WA border rules (sad face) but the wonderful Sarana at Harper Collins organised radio talks, blogs on the romance.com.au website, podcasts and facebook live events. Word must have got out somehow, because The Vet from Snowy River had numerous reprints and loads of sales and everyone (but especially me) is thrilled!...
