2014 – Love in the Outback

Read more about Love in the Outback from Pan Macmillan 



The true story of a tree-hugging vegetarian from a small English village who gave up a job she hated, stopped stalking a man who wasn’t interested and moved to Australia to work for the Royal Flying Doctor Service. She ended up living in the remote mining town of Broken Hill, where everything she thought she knew about life and love was turned on its head.


‘Read it over two days, loved it and laughed a lot.’ Jill H.

“Can’t believe where the day went but couldn’t put your book down!” Judith B.

“Thoroughly enjoyed it! What a wild ride…Congratulations!”  Jasmine V, Orange Library.

“Finished your book at breakfast this mornng, just loved it, what an adventurous road you have travelled to have finally found your very own rainbow.” Jenny T.

“Would you believe that I read it straight through I normally don’t read books but couldn’t put it down.” John E.

    I loved your book, completely and utterly, was sad to finish it. Makes me want to relocate to Broken Hill myself at 49.
