Author Bio

With a big change in her personal life, Annie decided at the end of 2022 a sea change was in order and moved four hundred kilometres north of Perth to a beautiful country town. Here the beach is a prominent place in her life and the lives of her two dachshunds, Sosaj and Biskit with daily swims and strolls along the shore a given. The coffee shops along the foreshore are a haven for a writer who uses the water as her muse. Although Annie generally writes in the contemporary romance genre, with her Flower Quartet already published, she has recently dipped her toe into writing children’s books - one for each of her three grandchildren, which should be in print over the next two years. Then it’s a return to looking at love in a variety of different situations, mostly taking place in her beautiful home state of Western Australia. And, with a set of early readers based on the adventures of her beloved pups, Annie can’t see the possibility of retirement any time soon.

A Rose in the Garden

RRP: $26.95

Would Rose forfeit a new love for something that may not even exist...

Or does the future hold for her a chance at true happiness...?

Just when Rose is accepting romance into her life again, someone from her past arrives to turn her world upside down.

Rose, a young widow, is given a cruise by her family for her 50th birthday and on which she is accompanied by her friend, Linda.

One night, over dinner, Rose and Linda meet the cruise ship captain's father, Leon Gardner.

Linda and Rose 'adopt' Leon, often taking him on their excursions and dine with him each evening for enjoyable conversation and laughter.

Richard Gardner, the captain, upon being introduced to Rose becomes quite smitten. As he walks the decks one night, he saves Rose from falling into the pool...and from then on, they see each other often...

Yet, Rose also has feelings for another male passenger on the ship, Abe Shah, who she also believes holds a connection to her late husband, and he may even be her late husband...

For Captain Richard Gardner, a divorcee, his feelings for Rose may become complicated as his daughter, Dayna is very protective of both her father and her autistic son, and becomes jealous of the relationship Rose has with both of them, especially as Rose is adapt at talking with special needs children from her work in schools years earlier...

This is the third book of a quartet. The quartet is about four women spanning three generations of one family.

"I couldn't put this down! I wish my cruises were like this... Can't wait for the final book in the series!" Josie Indie Book reviewer
