Flying High and Sharknado are some of my all time favourite cult films.... I can't wait to read this little beauty from Billie Jones! I just hope there are chainsaws!!


When unseasonable weather hits the sunshine city of Brisbane, a freak typhoon terrorizes the citizens. It’s not just any typhoon though, it’s a snake typhoon! And the deadliest snakes in Australia, with venomous fangs are flying straight for Kez.

Kez is the new girl in the office and she’s desperately fighting to prove herself, but what’s a girl to do when faced with a typhoon of snakes coming straight for her helicopter?

These flying diabolical snakes will stop at nothing to kill their victims and Kez only has one option: Figure out how to stop a snake typhoon and save the world... or die trying!

She thinks she may have to attempt base jumping so she can write about it and Bungee is on the list too. You can find her either in front of her computer writing about her fictional adventures or at the beach searching for the next perfect wave.

I Get By With A Little Help From My Friends...

On 14th February 2014, I will realise a dream that I've had since I was 5.

My first novel Of Fire & Roses, Book 1 in the Erlanis Chronicles series will be published through Evernight Teen Publishing.

It's been a whirlwind of stress, self doubt, flashes of bravado, and a lot of coffee and chocolate. But what got me from hearing something in a song that inspired me to write, to now madly preparing for a book release? 

Yes, putting one word after another has a lot to do with it, but that was the easy part. What keeps you going when you think your writing is the biggest load of cow dung that even beetles wouldn't be seen dead in? When the story has stalled and you have no idea which direction to take it in? When characters decide to do something you weren't expecting?

 I would have given up before I had even started if it hadn't been for a small group of people, who I feel were instrumental in my success. They talked me off ledges many a time, read my first draft and didn't laugh, they brainstormed with me to get past those icky blockages...

 They are authors, mentors, counsellors, negotiators, but most importantly, friends. And the funny part is, I haven't even met most of them. If you find yourself struggling, tap into your support network and use it. They are your lifeline.

 If you don't think you know how, start on Facebook and look for author groups and be proactive, DON'T LURK. This is key. People need to get to know who you are. Help them promote their work and they in turn will help you. You just may find yourself with a published novel too!

Finding Evan Cover Reveal Information

Coming January 2014…


* Book #2 in the Butterfly Days Series *

She killed a part of me – the part which trusts when someone tells you they love you, and allows you to trust that person with your heart.

Ness and Evan return to Leeds from Europe, and begin their new life together. But the past Evan has buried for years resurfaces and threatens their future.

After fifteen years, Evan doesn’t want any contact with the woman who abandoned him, but is unwillingly pulled into his mother’s life by Lucy.

Feeling pushed aside by Ness’s focus on her studies and new friends, Evan can’t confide in Ness about what’s happening. This return to his old behaviour adds more distance to their relationship. When Ness’s new friend Ollie picks up the pieces because Evan is away, Evan’s insecurities threaten their relationship further.

Ness becomes aware of Evan’s situation, and she questions whether he will ever be able to break his ties to those dragging him down. If he can’t put himself first, and live the life he wants, she is unable to see how their relationship could work. In return, Evan struggles with Ness’s inability to get close to people, and her distance pushes him further away.

The decision about the future of the relationship is taken out of their hands - by something which could end things between Ness and Evan forever.
