I’ve just finished writing the draft of my second novel – working title Single in the City. Here’s the blurb:
When Alex is dumped by her long-term boyfriend on her 30th birthday, she is shocked to say the least. Sick of putting her own dreams on hold to find Mr. Right, she decides a dramatic life overhaul is in order.
Leaving behind her small hometown in New Zealand, she heads to the one place she’s always dreamed of visiting: New York City. Once there, she vows to take a year off from dating and instead focus on her dream of writing, turning the whole experience into a popular blog.
Things are going well as her blog is noticed by a publisher and it looks like a book deal could be coming her way. But what she wasn’t planning on was her sexy neighbor: a single dad – also a writer – who makes her weak at the knees. Because, after all, she’s not dating, and even if she were it would be someone with a lot less baggage. Right?
Will Alex be able to focus on her writing goals without getting distracted? Or will she throw them all away again for another risky romance? Or, is it possible, that she could somehow have both?
A feel-good romantic comedy about putting your dreams first – no matter what they are.

Earlier this year, I wrote my first novel – working title The Perfect Girl. This is still in the draft stage and will be edited and published in 2019. Here’s the blurb:
Georgia has always been a bit chubby, but her musician boyfriend of three years, Jake, doesn’t seem to mind. And when Jake invites her to a special dinner she’s certain he’s finally going to propose.
But when he instead tells her his band is going on tour for three months without her, and then she discovers her younger sister has just gotten engaged, Georgia decides it’s time for drastic measures. She vows to finally lose the weight and become the best version of herself so Jake can realize just how amazing she really is.
On her quest she meets the handsome musician Nate and the two become closer just as she’s sure Jake is slipping away. And everyone around he seems to think she’s losing too much weight, but Georgia is convinced that it’s never enough.
Now, Georgia needs to figure out what really matters before it’s too late and she loses everything she’s worked for.
