Flying High for Romance

Of late I’ve been writing about flying. Hide and Seek was a special book to me because it brought back many childhood memories of growing up as a flying doctor’s daughter. Some of my earliest recollections are of flying and of the dry and dusty outback towns we lived in. I also experienced a runway plane crash, just like Hope, the heroine of Hide and Seek – though it didn’t have the same tragic consequences. My father also worked as a doctor in Broome (where Hide and Seek is set). To get there, we would fly for many hours in a creaky old plane.

The Royal Flying Doctor Service continues to do life-saving work, taking medical care to Australia’s furthest corners. Some of the royalties from this book will go to the RFDS.

 Hide and Seek was released in 2015 in a 3-in-1 summer bestseller print collection: Time for the Beach but it is also available singly as an e-book. Enjoy!
