You may have noticed that my last medical romance came out in 2019 and there hasn’t been once since. Doesn’t mean I haven’t been writing. In fact, since 2016, I’ve written four best-selling, Australia set, meaty women’s fiction novels about family and community, featuring many of medical romances favourite themes. Across those four books I’ve featured a female surgeon, a GP and a community health nurse along with women across the generations.
I love these books because at their heart they are stories about women and relationships, just like MedRoms but I’ve been able to tell more than one person’s story in each book.
So why have only Australian and New Zealanders heard about these books? There is a complicated thing in publishing called ‘territorial rights.’ The good news is, these books are now being published for readers outside of AUS/NZ in print and eBook so YAY!!! Do the covers entice you? (Available in audio too with the AUS covers).
I am excited to present to you:
- Daughter of Mine : One family and a tangled web of secrets and lies. OUT NOW
- Birthright: an inheritance and a family behaving very badly OUT July 27th 2020
and then to follow
- Home Fires : one wildfire, three scorched marriages and an inflammatory secret that rocks a town. OUT September 14th 2020
- Just an Ordinary Family : Friendship, lies and betrayal. Out October 12th 2020
As Daughter of Mine is out, I’ll chat about it today 🙂
Daugher of Mine was the first one I wrote and its story came from me visiting an historic mansion about 100km from where I live ,in an area that was once incredibly wealthy from wool. I found myself walking the halls saying, ‘what stories would these walls tell if they could talk.’
The blurb says,
What can you believe in if the past is a lie?
Harriett Chirnwell has a perfect life—a husband who loves her, a successful career and a daughter who is destined to become a doctor just like her.
Xara has always lived in Harriet’s shadow; her chaotic life with her family on their sheep farm falls far short of her older sister’s standards of perfection and prestige.
Georgie is the youngest and the only one of the three sisters to have left small-town Billawarre. But is she happy?
All three sisters have a different and often strained bond with their mother. When Edwina arrives at her milestone birthday party on the arm of someone new, the lives of the sisters are changed forever. Who is this man?
Suddenly there are criminal accusations, daughters in crisis and tangled secrets. Will old secrets shatter the perfect facade of this prominent family? When your world falls apart the only person you can depend on is your sister.
Lowe wields a deft hand creating utterly addictive storytelling that will have you questioning your own perceptions of what family is.
