After moving to the lush green Hunter Valley, Australia, Ann has the perfect surrounding to let her imagination to run wild. She alternates her time between writing sexy rural and erotic romances.
Men in kilts bring Ann to her knees and she can’t wait to visit Scotland where she can get her fill of the tartan clad hotties for, um research purposes, of course.
In the meantime, her DH puts up with her talking to her characters and getting lost in worlds only she can imagine as she battles to bring stories to the page for everyone to enjoy.
And her book....
Outback In Stilettos
The most popular soap on television hangs in the balance because Delilah Connors has lost her mojo. Her agent decides she needs a break.
Delilah disagrees but when her agent says jump, she jumps! She heads for the outback on a bus tour from hell. The coach smells, her seating partner is an octopus and the road leads nowhere she wants to go. It’s all too much.
She grabs her bags and hits the track. The trouble is the track leads to two small children and a widowed farmer. The kids are cute but not cute enough to compensate for an archaic kitchen and the filthy flies. Just when she’s getting the hang of the outback, the flies and that sexy farmer she’s summoned back to the big smoke.
Blake makes a last ditch attempt to plead his case but amongst the glitter and glamour of the Sydney film elite, he is way out of his depth.
And now for Ann's shoes....
I’m a country girl and shoes don’t really come at the top of my list. Not until I have to go to a writers conference, then I’m in a panic. Last year I decided to do something different to show off my quirky style.
Footrot Flats- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Footrot_Flats -was a big thing when I was growing up. I loved reading the comic books and found them so true to life. They kept me amused for ages. I was trawling the net one day when I came across decoupage shoes. This was what I was looking for! Different and certainly more me than sparkly shoes with impossible heals that would have me falling down stairs and wrecking an ankle before the night was over.
The hardest thing was trying to find the black and white comic books. Luckily we have a second hand book shop in our little town and I raided her collection. Then the fun began cutting and pasting the shapes onto my shoes.
They turned out great and went with the black and white cocktail theme perfectly.
Where to find Ann....
Thanks Ann... for sharing you shoe story with us. I have to say these are the most crafty shoes we've ever featured, and so wonderfully original :)
