After all, he is based in France, the wealthy owner of the international company Delta works for, while she leads a quiet life in Melbourne.

Then Édouard offers Delta the chance to work in Paris. There, the young and inexperienced Delta finds herself falling in love with her handsome boss. But does the Frenchman return her feelings or is she simply a pleasant, and temporary, distraction? Perhaps the recently widowed and very beautiful Jacqueline Morin is more his style.

Mind Bond
(Feather in Cap Publishing, 2013)
Genre: Urban fantasy/New Age fiction

Mind BondA worldwide phenomenon has begun – the emergence of Interspecies Telepaths, or ISTs.

When Christa Wilder mind-bonds with Magnus, a wolf pup, on a camping trip in Sakima National Park, her life changes forever. As the bond between Christa and Magnus grows stronger, other ISTs befriend them, including teenage Romy and her mountain lion, and Karl, a famous wildlife artist, and his golden eagle.

But not everyone is happy that ISTs exist or that wolves have been successfully reintroduced to Sakima, especially when wolves begin killing livestock on nearby ranches. Suddenly, with the first wolf hunting season about to open just beyond the park's boundaries, Magnus's pack is placed in jeopardy.

Even inside the park there is danger because a lunatic is slaughtering animals while staying one step ahead of the authorities. Next on the hit list: a wolf.

And, unbeknown to Christa, her brother, Josh, who went missing on his fifth birthday, has reappeared, but what sort of man is he? Why is he keeping his identity a secret?

Soon Christa is forced to commit to a new life full of challenges, friendships, learning, love and loss. With her psychic grandmother and her best friend, Ava, Christa will explore her spiritual beliefs, discovering a deep connection with nature and Spirit. But, most importantly, Christa will discover the sheer joy of the Mind Bond.

Lines upon the Skin
(Pan Macmillan, 1995. Reissued by Feather in Cap Publishing, 2013)
Genre: Fantasy

Lines upon the Skin"I think I knew even then it would be my maps that would take me across the world, to places and people unknown and into cultures otherwise closed to me. In mapping them I would come to know them a little and at times my very eagerness pained me."

Ashil is an apprentice cartographer, keen to travel and explore the world. When she befriends the confident Chandra, a nomad mapdrawer, her plans are set in motion. Together with the shy but talented Lilith, they seek independence and adventure, as demand for their maps takes them far across the continent of Tirayi. As they travel, they are joined by the mysterious tracker Alexa and the beautiful dancer Carly.

Bound by friendship and drawn by the novelty of the unknown, the five move from job to job. Until, in the stunning seaside city of Cynal, amid the merry calls of the merfolk and the strange attentions of their silent follower, the women find romance and excitement. But an incident in their past is catching up with them and will lead them into a dangerous confrontation with the Evil One. The mystical white panther, believed to be a messenger from the gods, is rumoured to be reappearing. And the Evil One intends to gain control of it. And nothing, especially not five young women, will stand in the Evil One’s way.
