My Awesome Writing Place
I’m lucky enough to have a spot in my house that’s all my own. I’ve turned it into my own personal writing haven, which includes a spacious desk, bookshelves filled with my favourite authors, a special place for copies of my own books, a giant printer that can handle 200-300 page manuscripts and my “tiny plant family.”
I work on a laptop, which also means I sometimes get comfy on the couch if I’m doing an activity that requires a lot of reading, such as copy editing. I also sometimes stand to work, and I place my laptop on one of my bookshelves. I love the versatility of changing up my scenery if I please.
My office has plenty of natural light, which is great. And my desk is big enough to house my collection of four succulents that were all gifts. My husband likes to buy me plants to mark milestones, and I love having something green on my desk. We have, however, suffered a few casualties to over-watering, so I’m trying really hard to keep the remaining plants happy and healthy.
I also spend some time working while travelling. I’m from Australia, but I currently live in Toronto. So every eighteen months or so, I fly home and visit my parents. Because the flight is so long and my work is totally portable, I usually visit for a month or so. This means I take my laptop and set up in my parent’s house, which works really well.
Even if my laptop isn’t handy, I’m usually working in some capacity. Whether it’s thinking about my work in progress while I’m going for a walk, or plotting out a new idea while I do the dishes, my characters are always keeping me busy.
Bad Bachelor - Bad Bachelors, #1
Everybody's talking about the hot new app reviewing New York's most eligible bachelors. But why focus on prince charming when you can read the latest dirt on the lowest-ranked "Bad Bachelors"—NYC's most notorious bad boys.
If one more person mentions Bad Bachelors to Reed McMahon, someone's gonna get hurt. A PR whiz, Reed is known as an 'image fixer' but his womanizing ways have caught up with him. What he needs is a PR miracle of his own.
When Reed strolls into Darcy Greer's workplace offering to help save the struggling library, she isn't buying it. The prickly Brooklynite knows Reed is exactly the kind of guy she should avoid. But the library does need his help. But as she reluctantly works with Reed, she realizes there's more to a man than his reputation. Maybe, just maybe Bad Bachelor #1 is THE one for her.

Growing up, Stefanie came from a family of women who loved to read. Her favourite activity was going shopping with her Nan during school holidays, where she would sit on the floor of the bookstore with her little sister and painstakingly select the books to spend her allowance on. Thankfully, Nan was a patient woman.
Thus, it was no surprise Stefanie was the sort of student who would read her English books before the semester started. After sneaking several literature subjects into her ‘very practical’ Business degree, she got a job in Communications. When writing emails and newsletters didn’t fulfil her creative urges, she turned to fiction and was finally able to write the stories that kept her mind busy at night.
Now she lives with her very own hero and dreams of travelling the world. She frequently indulges in her passions for good coffee, French perfume, high heels and zombie movies. Recently she gave up her day job to write sexy, contemporary romance stories and she couldn’t be happier.
