After a pretty awful end to 2018 I was glad to have some milestones to celebrate this year.
On New Year’s Day we left for Malaysia and Singapore to celebrate our youngest son’s 18st birthday.
@Universal Studios – What a difference 7 years makes!
Birthday Dessert at Central Perk, Singapore, themed “Friends” café!
We arrived home, threw a load of washing in the machine and repacked for a few days at Port Willunga to celebrate my Mum’s 80th Birthday. (Here with all her grandchildren.)
Then it was off to Melbourne for a friend’s 50th – there have been a LOT of 50th birthdays over the past few years but they have been huge fun, lots of dancing and reminiscing along with a few dancing injuries (one broken foot and one torn knee cartilage – luckily neither of them were mine 🙂 ) – I think it’s a case of the mind is willing but the flesh isn’t!
And then my 30th Mills & Boon novel Rescued By The Single Dad has been released. Can’t quite believe I’ve written 30 books! I’m very excited.
Falling in love…with her rescuer!
When paramedic Patrick Reeves discovers Dr Charli Lawson trapped after a landslide, he holds her hand until she’s freed. They will never forget the connection of that night, but Patrick is a single dad with a broken heart, and Charli’s already lost everything. She tries to stay away but he slips past her defences. Could her courageous but scarred rescuer – and his adorable three-year-old – help heal Charli’s lonely heart?

Still to come – a son’s 21st, another best friend’s 50th and a wedding anniversary – oh, and a looming deadline for my next book!!!
What are you looking forward to?

Congrats on all the milestones, Emily! I have a big zero birthday this year!
Happy Birthday to you! I know it’s a while off but I imagine you’ll be celebrating in style, can’t wait to see pics xx
You have been busy!!! My oldest son has worked for Universal Studios Florida for 18 years, since he was in high school, starting as a Skipper driving the Jaws boats. Now he’s in Upper Management and has travelled to the parks in Japan and California for work, and this year their corporate meeting is in SIngapore before Christmas, so he’s excited for that.
His Best friend is an RN a the parks, lots of interesting stories from her!
What a fabulous career path, I’m jealous!!! And i might have to get in touch with your son’s best friend – I’ve always wanted to write a book where the heroine works in the medical centre of a theme park!
Thank you xx
Sorry your 2018 ended badly, Emily, but so glad you have some good things to celebrate! Love the family photos, and huge congratulations on your 30 book milestone!
Thanks, Robin. Figured we’ve got to keep going, look forward and celebrate the things we can!
Woohoo Emily huge congrats on the 30th book which is waiting for me on my kindle 🙂
Family holidays and get togethers are always fabulous
Thanks, Helen, I’d love to know what you think when you finish reading – it’s a slightly different style (I think) so curious to hear readers’ thoughts x
I’m so glad that 2019 is bringing you good things, Emily. I love the big ‘0’ birthdays, they never stop being a reason to celebrate. (Maybe more gently as time goes by, but it never seems to work out that way 🙂 ) And congratulations on your 30th book! Such an achievement xxx
Thanks, Annie x
