Longing…

Dappled light across her body
Flawless and golden
Marbled by the trickling rays
dancing across her skin
enticing me, tempting me…
out of my comfort zone
seductively captivating
in her innocence

This body, her body
That arranges itself against me
like it is home
Embraces me, welcomes me…
I am gladly received into
her everyday
Cherished
There is nothing
ordinary about her
Or about my own emerging
in her presence
Intoxicating, dynamic, powerful

Tracing Invisible Threads

Family secrets, strange coincidences and a journey of discovery through Victoria’s gold rush country are woven into this evocative, opposites-attract, romantic suspense.

Globe-trotting photographer Eleanor Heysen is back home in Melbourne. A family mystery leads her to a collection of old photographs and the State Library. Here she meets the self-assured picture collections manager Alexa Bellamy.

Stolen kisses between the stacks give way to their evolving connection. However, when the curious Eleanor shakes Alexa’s family tree…dark secrets tumble out.

Alexa is overwhelmed by her broody, spirited, and fleeting admirer. The fear and betrayal stirred up from the truth about Alexa’s ancestors, leaves her in emotional free-fall.

The invisible thread that drew the women to each other is in danger of unravelling.

Will it be strong enough to keep them together?

Food for Love

A lesbian romance about how nourishment is so much more than the food we eat.

When Jessica Harris flies home to Australia to sort out her late brother’s estate, the last thing she wants to face is his altruistic investment—an eatery on the rural Bellarine Peninsula.

The injured British/Indian elite cyclist just wants to settle up, move on, get rehab, and certainly not have to deal with the restaurant’s beautiful owner and artisan foodie, Lillian McAllister, or her sweet, four-year-old daughter.

In order to win, Jessica’s disciplined life is dedicated to controlling her emotions, and she isn’t sure she’d survive letting her walls down now.

Where the Light Plays

Two headstrong women from different worlds share a love of food, art, and the beach, sparking an opposites-attract lesbian romance with a slow burn as exquisite as its gorgeous Surf Coast setting.

Dr. Caitlin Quinn, a sophisticated, self-assured Irish art historian, arrives in Australia to work but ends up enjoying Australia’s local scenery—especially sun-kissed artist Andi Rey.

Andi, an impassioned artist, grounded by her family and a beautiful life spent on the Surf Coast of Victoria, is entirely focused on her first solo exhibition. That is, until the addictive Caitlin turns up and ignites a storm of longing.

Is their attraction enough to overcome career expectations, rising tension, and culture clashes? Can two such different people have a future together?
