In steamy northern Queensland, Conor is rebuilding his shattered life. Working at Cooktown's youth centre has given him the chance to make a difference again, and the opportunity to flirt with Dr Kristy Dark. The local GP is hiding her own secrets and struggling to raise her feisty teenage daughter alone. When a severe cyclone menaces the coast, threatening to destroy everything in its path, tensions come to a head - and the weather is not the only danger. Cut off from the world and with her life on the line, Kristy will have to summon her courage and place her trust in Conor, or they'll both lose someone they love.

What I’m reading right now… I’m enjoying Season of Shadow and Light by Jenn J McLeod. It’s the third book in the Seasons series and I’m hooked!


My favourite book growing up… Anne of Green Gables captured my heart when I was stuck inside with a broken arm during school holidays. Anne and her quirky, feisty courage seemed so real – I wanted to fly to Canada immediately.


My all time favourite book is… Hungry as the Sea by Wilbur Smith – my copy is dog-eared from being reread…


The book I would recommend everyone to read... The Book Thief because it’s beautifully written, clever, insightful and moving.


The book I wish I wrote… I recently read the Hunger Games trilogy. It’s different, eerily prophetic and the writing is wonderful.


My guilty reading pleasure is… Historical romances – they’re my ‘go to’ stories when all I want to do is relax and escape – anything by Anna Campbell, Christina Brookes or Anne Gracie will do the trick!


The book on my bookshelf that I have never read… That would be the manual for the chart plotter onboard Roobinesque! I definitely subscribe to the ‘when all else fails read the manual!’


My book is... set in beautiful North Queensland – everyone should visit at least once in their lives!

I’ll never forget the first time I... flew an aircraft solo – awesome!

My favourite place is... aboard our home, a 40ft Lagoon catamaran called Roobinesque.

I regret... not recording my Dad’s life story before his memory failed.

I remember...diving into the Southern Ocean off the coast of Antarctica. I’ve never been so cold in my life.

The one piece of advice I should have listened to but didn’t... was study hard at school…

I love... the night sky in the outback or moored at an outer reef.

I hate... finding plastic rubbish floating in our oceans.

I wish... the world was a more tolerant place.

I can’t say no to... a request from a reader…

Yesterday, I... helped my Mum celebrate her 93rd birthday.
