** Re-release September 2017 **

I am excited to announce my novel, ‘For the Love of Patrick,’ will be re-released on-line and in printed format in September 2017.  I hope you enjoy this fast moving, rollicking, Aussie saga. It is threaded with Australian history, romance, drama and an ample dose of humor. This family saga will be followed by two more stories, which are equally as captivating.


For the Love of Patrick Cover


About the book:

'For the Love of Patrick' is the captivating story of one man's unique journey, which starts with his forced abandonment by his young mother into the care of nuns in a girls' orphanage in South Australia in 1892.

After an unorthodox upbringing and wild Australian youth, Patrick grows into the kind of man that other men admire, and that women find irresistible. Through his romances, exploits and adventures, we trace his rollicking path until he eventually finds his one true love. Neither time, distance, nor the ravages of WW1 cause their love to falter.

Patrick's life story is paralleled by that of his brave mother and key characters who all contribute to produce a pacy, passionate and compelling narrative. All readers who love action, adventure and fiery romance will be captivated by 'For the Love of Patrick.'

Numerous proofreaders have given glowing reviews, all beginning with the cliché, 'I couldn't put it down!"
