Tell us about Down Outback Roads. What inspired this novel?
The setting and plot for Down Outback Roads much grew out of the things I see every day. The small town of Glenalla, and the surrounding red earth countryside, is based on central western NSW, in particular the Cobb and Co station at Molong and the murals at Eugowra. Some of the events that feature in the story are then drawn from my own farm.

Number one thing to do on your bucket list?
Take my children to Paris.

Best thing about being an Aussie?
The intense blue of our sky.

What you want readers to know about the romance…
