Hello dear “Love Is The Best Medicine” Readers. Waving again from Australia. Wishing you light at the end of challenging times with hope for a new-normal returning to make us all smile. Very soon!
I’m Fi McArthur dropping in with the news of my last Lyrebird Lake series book – EMMA. So, if you’d like to join me for a medical romance set in a small, semi-outback town in Queensland, in Australia, then this is for you.
That’s four Lyrebird Lake books in four months so if you like series, too, they are all out about from today. More coming later in the year. What fun.
But first…a photo towards the mountains from my loungeroom window at the farm. The water from the recent flood rains is still in and it looks so golden in the afternoons. Thought I’d share.
I am here to talk about EMMA. It’s so lovely to revisit favourite characters again, expand their stories, and bring the technology and sensitivity up to date when you republish a book many years later. Emma and Gianni are two of my faves, first published in 2010. The background? Well, when I was still a practising midwife, I used to share antenatal classes with young mums. We had wonderful mornings together. One of the young mums went on to study her degree in welfare and psychology and later joined me as a presenter at the classes. Michelle’s mum had been diagnosed with Huntington’s Disease and like Emma in my story she waited until she was thirty before she found out if she had the gene and since then, has lectured around the world on the impact of HD. So, this story resonated with my absolute admiration of families who deal with debilitating diseases and the heartbreak of HD. I do hope you enjoy Emma and Gianni’s story.
And again, a reminder my latest Medical Romance from Mills and Boon, is out and available, offering you a chance to travel to beautiful Barcelona with me. Or with Cleo and Felipe, really. I’d love a Second Chance In Barcelona. Have you been to Spain?
And that’s me for a while, my love and blessings to you and yours and huge thanks to all the fab authors on the LITBM blog xx Fi
