If you've wandered here by chance—well, congratulations, because I have trouble finding myself!—I want to assure you I can spell, but I'm Australian...so things tend to look a little odd to my American friends.
Though fortunate to grow up in the South Australian country – initially on the beautiful Fleurieu Peninsula in a tiny town where the school had a total enrolment of only eleven students, and later on a sheep and wheat farm in the Murraylands, between the Mt Lofty Ranges and the stunning Murray River – in typical teen fashion I couldn't wait to hit the bright lights of the big city when I graduated. However, a couple of years working in various government departments, including the State History Trust and the Education Department, saw me longing to make my way back to the country. Through a circuitous route (isn't that life?) I now find myself splitting my time between my home and professional counselling practice in the beautiful Adelaide Hills and the farm where I grew up. I definitely have the best of both worlds!
Anyway, settle in with a cup of tea, and wander around my site. You'll find snippets about my books, and reviews of wonderful writers' works. I promise to post bucketloads of pictures of farm life (because I take bucketloads!) and you're sure to come across my ramblings and happenings that have tickled my rather prominent funny bone (not really, none of my bones is prominent!)
Drop by and say hi on any of my social media platforms...but be prepared to chat and swap some recipes. I do a ton of baking - I was making sourdough years before the craze hit - along with jam making, preserving and canning (which is American-speak for preserving meat in jars.) I'll also chat about my menagerie and garden for hours.
Oh, and if there's not much happening on here, pop over to my pen name: www.laney-kaye-author.weebly.com That's where you'll find all the steamy stuff, as well as Women's Fiction/Romantic suspense, MALICIOUS DESIRE
