Ohmigosh, I still can’t believe it! Saturday night I won the Short Sexy category RUBY for The Italian Boss’s Mistress of Revenge! Better still, I watched good buddies, Marion Lennox and Anne Gracie also take out their categories.

But all this excitement only came after I was truly humbled to learn I had been awarded Honorary Membership of Romance Writers of Australia.

It was one amazing night. I’m currently in Wellington, New Zealand, chilling out and visiting family before the Auckland NZ conference this weekend, but I’ll post pics when I get home next week. It was a simply fabulous  conference on all counts and a huge congratulations has to go the Aussie executive and 2009 conference team. Thank you all so much!

Kate, you are very welcome to throw wine over me at any time – truly, I just so look forward to the times we do get together. Not this year, it seems, but definitely before too long. Then whoever is sitting around us, look out!:-))

Many thanks for your congrats!

Carol, you know I love your books. Can’t work out why you didn’t win this year – it had to have been so very close! Your books are fabulous.

And didn’t we have a fabulous time at conference this year? It was a great weekend.

Thank you Angie! I’m so glad you loved The Italian Boss’s Mistress of Revenge. It was a special book to me because I managed to work my beloved Adelaide Hills into the story, just a little. I’m so chuffed it resonated with readers too. Thank you!
