Author Bio

Annie has many facets.  She is a mother to three beautiful children and a rather lively rescue dog, as well as a grandmother to three delightful imps who are growing up way too quickly for her liking!  Her partner, Grant, is her muse, her sounding board, and the reason she is now a published author.  She generally writes contemporary romance drama fiction, though is now beginning to dabble in children’s fiction on the insistence of her grandies!  In her sixtieth year Annie self-published her first book, followed by a second the following year.  These books, the fist two of the Flower Quartet, are now being republished by Shawline Publishing Company who have published her third in the series and will also publish the last book which is ready for The End to be added to the final edit.  Whatever she is doing, Annie believes life is one huge learning curve, even if she struggles with the technology of it all.

Lily has a big surprise for Rose, Poppy and Daisy, and it will change their lives in unexpected ways…

Lily was widowed while pregnant with her daughter, Rose; her husband having been killed during active service in the Vietnam War. She never really engaged the thought of remarrying, filling her time building up her baking business from home, which supplied the local supermarket and cafes.

At her 70th birthday celebration, Lily delivered a big surprise to Rose, and her two granddaughters, Poppy and Daisy, that would change their lives in unexpected ways…

At the party, Lily also met Malcolm Vale, a dapper, widowed Englishman, who had also moved into the Retirement Village where her best friend, Ellen, had bought a unit. Lily enjoyed his flirtation at the many social gatherings they encountered one another and loved his wit and humour. However, Malcolm's very demanding daughters disliked Lily, believing she wasn’t of their expected social standing.

Would their friendship and budding romance be strong enough to withstand the interference of those who disagreed with their union? Or would Lily and Malcolm find new love again when they least expected it to happen?

“This is an exceptional romance series and filled with fun and frolicking to make each woman so colourful and unique in her own way yet be inclusive to the entire saga of the other’s adventures. Magical and enjoyable…Can not put them down!” Monica, Indiebook Reviewer
