I’d like to give a warm welcome to fellow Australian author, Jenny Schwartz. Jenny and I manage to meet up regularly to eat good food, drink good coffee, and I think last time we shared a plate of tiny donuts with a bowl of warm chocolate to dip them into while we watched a pod of dolphins swim across Fremantle harbour. One needs to treasure lunch companions like that :).
G’day from Australia
When Michelle invited me to guest post here at Magical Musings I said “thank you very much” – or maybe I just ate some more cake to celebrate, really I can’t remember. It was a great lunch. Anyways, she reminded me I said thank you, and then I asked, “What should I post about?”
“How about Australian settings?” Michelle suggested.
I leapt on that idea because I love writing about Australia. I set most of my stories here. Australia seems to me a distant cousin of Texas. We’re both vast, rugged individualists with attitude. Don’t mess with Australia! We have dropbears 😉
And then I realised that I didn’t actually want to write about Australia. I wanted to show you pictures that shared the theme of what I think makes my country amazing. We’re about freedom. Be who you want to be. Love, laugh, get angry and get over it. We’re passionate about being true to ourselves.
So in the hopes of luring you south to Australia, here we go!
And for those who can’t immediately board a plane to Australia, why not visit a while by picking up my latest book, Hero Duty?
She can buy anything she wants, except the courage to stand up to her family. That’s where he comes in.
Jessica Trove is a billionaire Cinderella, bullied by her family, and terrified of the responsibilities crashing down on her shoulders. She knows what she needs to do – she just needs to find the courage to do it.
That’s where Brodie Carlton comes in. Jessica is used to buying anything she wants, and what she wants right now is a hero. She’s going to make Brodie Carlton an offer he can’t refuse: be her emotional bodyguard, and she’ll make him rich. The only question is who will guard their hearts?
Jenny Schwartz is a West Australian author who dreams of living by the sea. Sitting on the front veranda with her morning cuppa and watching whales swim past sounds like the perfect life. Her website is http://authorjennyschwartz.com
