Love Sprung From Hate cover

Love Sprung From Hate (Dark Romeo 1)

I didn’t know she was a detective, the only daughter of the Chief of Police.
I didn’t know he was a mafia Prince, heir to the Tyrell’s bloody empire.

It was only supposed to be one night.
God help me, I can’t stop thinking about that night.
So when she walked into the interrogation room, my heart almost stopped.
I can’t believe he might have tortured and killed someone.

I have to avoid her at all costs.
I will be his downfall.

So begins a deadly game of cat and mouse, of blood and lust, of love and duty, and of an attraction so fierce the consequences are inevitable…

Inspired by Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, this is a retelling for mature audiences. Don’t enter the Underworld if you’re scared of the dark.

The answer to the riddle was





Riddle Office Image ANSWER

If you’ve read AFTERLIFE then you’ll know the sunflower scene. Not many people know how much the Sunflower means to me.

In 2012, my writing mentor – a man with 26 international bestsellers under his belt, the man who I owe every to – called me to tell me he was dying. With a heavy heart, I flew to Canberra to see him one last time, to spend one last week in his glorious presence.

As we were saying goodbye, he handed me a sunflower seedling, his favourite flower, grown from one of the sunflowers in his garden. He told me to collect the seeds and to ‘pass them on to create joy’ as Alyx’s mother did to Alyx in Afterlife. His last words to me were “my only regret with you, is that I won’t live to see you published”.

These words destroyed me.

Clutching my precious sunflower seedling, I flew home, stunned. Soon, shock turned to fury. And this fury forged into a steely-determination. I would prove him wrong. I would finish my first novel, and publish it before he passed away. I would prove to him that he didn’t waste his time nurturing me, encouraging me, pushing me. God dammit, I would make him proud.

In less than 6 weeks while still working an office job, I finished & edited Dark Angel 1, had the cover designed, created a website, shot a trailer, organised a blog tour. I was running on an average of 3 hours sleep a night but I had never felt so alive. Because he would see me published.

On 22 November I was told that he had passed away. Three hours later, my first book went live.

He never got to see me published. But I think he knows. His last gift to me, his sunflower, bloomed as he was leaving this earth and I don’t believe that is a coincidence. I believe it was him saying goodbye. And that he knew. And he was proud of me.

Today, the children of his sunflower have been planted across the world and I’ve run out of physical seeds. But I’ve learned the physical seeds were never the point…

I hope through my stories filled with redemption, hope and love, I’ve given you a “seed”. If I have, it’s now your turn to pass it on.

The Afterlife of Alyx & Israel is LIVE!

Happy release day for The Afterlife & Alyx & Israel! The ebook is at a special discounted price just for the next few days so don’t miss out!


Once upon a lifetime, Alyx & Israel lost each other…

In their new mortal lives, Alyx & Israel don’t remember anything about their past. And they have never crossed paths. Until some old friends decide to secretly nudge destiny along, their efforts almost destroying everything…

Now Alyx’s life lies in the balance, trapped in a coma deep within a DreamScape maze city. The only one who can help her escape is Israel, a man she doesn’t remember. They need to find a mysterious Mapmaker and solve his riddle. But is this Mapmaker hiding something?

Although this book is set years after the Dark Angel saga, it can be read as a standalone.

Massive giveaway & a peek at the Paper Dolls 1st Chapter…

Paper Dolls is coming out 24 April! For the first time, take a look at the cover and 1st chapter and details of the epic giveaway below!

Thank you to who designed this gorgeous cover for me. Go give his site a looksie – authors, I believe he’s running a win your next cover design giveaway right now!




My life comes down to this. Two faces. One choice.

Salem is my twin sister. She loved me. She protected me. She forgave me, even after I failed her. I just got her back after searching for three long, lonely years.

Then there’s Clay. Sweet yet intense and nursing a dark past of his own, he’s all the redemption I don’t deserve. He wants to open me up and know the insides of my soul. I want to let him, but I’m scared he’ll run from what he finds.

But I can’t have them both.

My name is Aria. I’m 18. And today, I must choose. One of the two people I love has to die.


In moments like these, everything slowed. Salem always joked that it was life’s way of making sure you didn’t miss the turning points, the important bits. As if gravity sank heavier and heavier with the weight of the moment until the world was too heavy to turn and everyone held their breath.
It certainly felt like that now. My next action, my next word, would change all of our lives.
“Aria,” Clay’s deep voice reached my ears. “Whatever happens…I love you.” The usual assuredness and authority was gone. Instead, strain and hurt had crumpled up and shoved into his throat. Choose me. Save me. Love me.
Before him my life had felt like a stack of old movies; frames missing or out of order, muted crackling sound, flickering and shuttering away, unloved and unseen in an old unused cinema.
Then I found him. Or he found me.
He created a warm shield around me where I could be safe. He coaxed away all my layers and shed all my masks and his love soaked right into my skin, right into the very soul of me. He pulled out the fossil buried inside that had been my heart and breathed life into me.
How could I give up the man I loved? The one who loved me with a fierce and unwavering passion, the man who made me feel like I could defeat demons as long as he was by my side.
Winking in the threads of sunlight piercing through the solemn gray clouds, seed fluff twirled about me like swirling, dancing couples. Spinning around like Salem and I used to do in our backyard, hands clasped together tightly, turning round and round, eyes to the sky, our twin voices giggling and floating into the air like dandelions.
She had been my shield before Clay.
“I’m nothing without you, Aria,” Salem’s voice trembled, desperation leaking into the breaths between her words. Choose me. Need me. Love me.
How could I end her? I just got her back. For so long we shared almost everything, and she protected me. Her whole life had been about protecting me. Because she loved me that much.
How could I turn against her, toss her away like an old broken toy?
But I had to choose.
I could see us now, the three of us making a chain like when I was a kid, folding pieces of colored paper into rectangles, cutting out an arm, a leg, and half a head, and unfurling my new patterns in the light to reveal a line of paper dolls. Clay, Salem and I − we were all just paper dolls in a paper chain, me in the middle, each end pulling tighter and tighter until something had to tear.
Even now as I stare between Clay and Salem, trying to digest our impossible situation, Hope is still there, that terrible pixie, fluttering on my shoulder, whispering.
Maybe it doesn’t have to end this way?
Fuck you, Hope. Here’s the truth.
Nobody is coming.
No one will save us.
And someone isn’t going to make it out of this forest today.
“Choose,” my sister screamed. “It’s either him or me.”
My fingers tightened around my gun in a reflex. This was it. I either ended her. Or destroyed Clay.
I squeezed my eyelids shut for a moment, just for a moment of peace. Just for an instant I could shut out the inevitable, and in this blessed darkness I believed I could conceive a way that both could exist in my life. A way that I could choose Salem and Clay.
You can’t have both.
You tried.
Choose now.
But how?
What do you do when someone puts a gun to your head? Clay’s words came back to me, echoing as loud in my mind as if he had just spoken them. You refuse to bend. You push back. You find another way. You take that gun off him and put it back in his face. But you do not give in.
Find another way…
I knew what I had to do. A kind of peace settled on my skin, as delicate as gossamer, as light as silk.
I opened my eyes to a world of bright light until my vision adjusted. The torn and pained faces of the two people I loved came into focus. The only two people I’ve shared air with while we slept, the same two people I’d crawl into Hell to be with, and the only two people I would die for. I forced the ghost of a smile forward.
And turned the gun on myself.
