Noelle. I seriously considered setting book 1 of this series in Hamsterland, but I got lost and ended up in Amsterdam. It was very strange there….lots of red lights in shop windows. As my favourite colour is green, and not red, I decided I should hop across to Ireland where everything is green. It is also the land of my forebears, in particular, County Tipperary. I feel a special bond with Ireland and I wanted to write a story that would allow me to ‘tip my hat’ to my great grandparents.
Noelle .This book? As opposed to the first two books in the series? Lots. As the subtitle – Winds of Change – suggests, we move outside Robinhill Farm and into the little village of Timpelaire. The characters from the two previous books are in it too, but there’s nothing like a bit of new blood to liven things up. And Dylan Thompson arrives out of nowhere and sets hearts a-flutter from Cork to the Antrim Coast.
Noelle. Oh, sure it does! It’s about a mile north of Timpelaire. Take the Lisdallen road for a while, then turn left into the track with the Robinhill Farm sign. Make sure you don’t end up at An Mullach farm by mistake. They have several dogs who just LOVE ham(sters).
Noelle. In Book 1, we got deep and meaningful with Bryan’s Zwartble sheep. In Book 2, Aislin introduced Liam and Bryan to alpacas, and in particular one randy stud called Fidel. And now, in book 3, we meet Rocky and Bullwinkle.
Noelle .I certainly have. Two of my friends and I – all fetching, available gals – attended the Lisdoonvarna Matchmaking Festival a few years back. Man, we broke some Irish hearts! Alas, we are still single, but we now have a good idea about what makes Irish Farmers tick. I left the girls in Lisdoonvarna for several days and drove all around Ireland on my own. I wanted to visit County Tipperary to check up on my cousins who still live on the family farm there. Next time I visit, I’d like to spend more time in Doolin, and visit the north-west coast. I also love the Antrim coast north of Belfast. Beautiful country.
Noelle Listen, guys. I – er – don’t know how to tell you this, but the answer is no. You see, Ireland is a VERY dangerous place for hamsters. They have wild foxes who hunt hamsters down, kill them, and eat them. You’re better off staying home with Shey.
Noelle Well, that was a shock to everyone involved. They gave us our rights back to our books, but Honor’s Legacy was due out a few weeks after they closed. So I’ve embarked on a steep learning curve and re-published books 1 and 2 in the series, and now Book 3. I could have submitted them to another publisher, but I’ve been keen to try self-pubbing for a while.
Noelle . I’m very fortunate that many of my author mates have self-pubbed very successfully, and they helped out, particularly Annie Seaton. She was my go-to person when I was pulling my hair out. Suzi Love ran a workshop on self-publishing too, and that was extremely helpful. Publishing eBooks is fairly straightforward, but the print versions takes a bit of effort.
Noelle. In July, I will release Buckley’s Chance. It is book 13 in the fantastic Bindarra Creek Romance series. The series is written by a collective of 13 authors, each writing a book a month set in the fictional-but-could-easily-be-real town of Bindarra Creek. I’m also down for two short stories for inclusion in anthologies, and I hope to be publishing my long awaited historical – Stone of Heaven and Earth.
Honor’s Legacy – Winds of Change
Forced to grow up tough and alone, Dylan and Ellen are unlikely candidates for a match made in heaven. But no one factored in Honor’s Legacy.
Australian stockman, Dylan Thompson, has had enough of farming. He seeks greener pastures and stumbles upon Robinhill Farm in beautiful Ireland. It’s there that he meets the beautiful young nanny, Ellen O’Malley. He’s intrigued by her but it’s clear she wants nothing to do with him.
Despite her vulnerable-looking exterior, Ellen O’Malley is tough. She’s had to be. All her life she’s had to struggle against not fitting in. The cruel and lonely hand she’s been dealt has made her mistrustful of many, and extremely loyal to a few.
Is it just coincidence that Ellen and Dylan meet? Or could it be part of the magic of Honor’s legacy?
In this tale of redemption, forgiveness, love, and letting go, Dylan and Ellen come to terms with their past. Under the watchful eye of loved ones they slowly learn how to put their demons to bed and embrace a future full of promise.
