Latest reviews

Here are a few snippets from the latest reviews of my current release, INHERITED: BABY and my upcoming first Modern Extra, BIG-SHOT BACHELOR. (Head on over to Cataromance to read the full reviews!)

Awe inspiring characters combined with an incredible story Inherited: Baby by Nicola Marsh tells the story of a woman whose inspirational spirit to live her life her way and is able to succeed in getting the man of her dreams. I really enjoyed Maya and Riley because they both were able to understand what was at stake and how to overcome their problems to make their relationship work. I loved how Riley was able to learn what was important to him, and have the guts to go after it. Ms. Marsh is an author I always enjoy reading and Inherited: Baby is another book that will stay with me long after I’ve finished it.

And more!

Nicola Marsh writes a down-to-earth romance that will appeal to everyone as Big-Shot Bachelor has for me. I loved reading how Ariel and Cooper connected, and how Cooper learnt that love comes in many forms and ways. I also enjoyed the relationship between Cooper and his father, the in-depth way Ms Marsh was able to delve with this father – son relationship gave the story a lot more personality. You need to read Big-Shot Bachelor because it gives you a romance that will stay with you.
Hoping to pop back in before the New Year but if I don't make it, I wish you all a wonderful start to 2007!

Editor interview!

Over at the Pink Heart Society, we've had a bit of a coup with Mills and Boon London editor Jenny Hutton doing an interview for us.
It really is enlightening and if you ever wanted to know about the road to publication from an editor's point of view, make sure you head on over and check it out!

In more mundane stuff, I went out last night for dinner with a group of old physio uni friends (for what seemed like the first time in months, and yes, I actually ate food and it stayed down!) and they were all chatting about the physio conference in Palm Cove next year. Then one of the girls asked me 'do you miss being a physio?' to which I responded with an instant, vehement, straight from the heart 'no way!'
Everyone laughed but it really made me think how I've had such a drastic job change and how much I love it. Writing is a passion. It's a part of me. It makes me happy. And it pays the bills.
What more could I ask for?

Looking glam?

This is pretty funny so just had to share.

I meet with a group of really close writing buddies once every few months. We chat, we laugh and we eat! These gals are the best and I'm so lucky that our writing brought us together. Their friendship is precious.
I've missed our last get-together because of the morning sickness, so they all came to me on Saturday bearing food and pressies. Copious amounts of both, including birthday pressies for me from October.

With all the chatting and catching up, I didn't get to open my pressies till later. Being the good girl, I always open cards first so imagine my surprise when I opened the first to discover "HAPPY 40TH BIRTHDAY"! I had a good chuckle and wasn't going to say anything but when I opened the next card and it had the same...well, needless to say I had tears rolling down my face! ( of laughter!)

Now, I know I look pretty bad at the moment. Most people tell me how pale/exhausted/etc...I look, which I'm not surprised about considering this constant morning sickness.
However, my Nan's 82 and has barely a wrinkle, my mum's in her sixties and looks fabulous and I'm proud to say I don't have one single wrinkle (the greys are another story!) My web pic was taken last year (and yes, I'm wearing makeup) but I reckon I don't look too bad for my age?
Yes, 40 is my next major birthday coming all too quickly but I'm not there yet!!

Of course, this mistake (an honest one later explained by my friend) led to much hilarity for the rest of the lunch and hubby thought it was too funny!!! He always teases me about our 6 week age gap as is (apparently he's my toy boy.)

So thanks for the laughs, girls.
I'll remember to trowel on the make up next time! ;)
