~ Author Spotlight ~ 

Over the past couple of years, I have had the privilege of getting to know Amanda. She is such a delightful girl who loves the journey of being an author. I asked her to join in with my little game and play ...

FIVE FAVOURITES! 




Favourite foods - potatoes (any way except raw), cheese, chocolate - these favourites make staying thinner harder. :) LOL
Favourite colours - burgundy and navy blue
Favourite authors - Stephen Lawhead, Melanie Dickerson, Georgette Heyer
Favourite pastimes - You'll never guess ... reading, watching movies, walking in the bush
Favourite places - Kings Canyon NT (near Uluru), Dandenong Ranges, Far North Queensland. :) (you might as well say the whole of Australia)


Thanks for playing Amanda! 


Now to introduce the first book in the Jackson's Creek series.... Ellenvale Gold
   

About the Book:
 It is the time of Australia’s harsh rogue-filled goldrush of the 1850’s when Miss Penelope Worthington suddenly finds herself orphaned, isolated and alone. With a large sheep station to run single-handedly, she has little option but to enlist the aid of a mysterious, but sinister stranger.
But who is the more treacherous? Gus—the scruffy, trespassing, ex-convict who co-incidentally shows up looking for work just when she desperately needs a farmhand or Rupert—the handsome, wealthy neighbour who would willingly marry her at the drop of a hat and solve her apparent dilemma?
Repeatedly, her faith is tested as she faces the unforgiving elements, deceit, lies and uncertainty. But where and how will it all end? But…is it the end? Will vengeance return or
will Penny’s faith prevail?
