Press Release: Tell me no Secrets is a finalist in Australia

I have just been informed that Tell me no Secrets is a finalist in the Australian Romance Readers Awards. I’m seriously still pinching myself and the first thing I did when I received the email was to forward it to Lyn Vernham my lovely publisher and ask her if it were real.

Well, it turns out that it is real. This shortlisting makes me especially happy, because this is a competition I didn’t enter. This is a competition where a lovely reader nominated me and that makes it even more special.

I’m told that the winner will be announced at a lovely, sparkly event in Sydney, Australia on the 5th May 2018.


I really wish I could be there, but… it’s in Australia…!! But can’t. I also really don’t think I’ll win. The other authors are amazing and I’m almost sure that the wonderful people of Australia have no idea who I am…. or do they??

Let’s wait and see x
