I’m thrilled to be able to emerge from my attic and – finally – share this news: my new novel, called THE TRIP OF A LIFETIME, will be published by Penguin Random House in Australia & New Zealand in July this year, in Ireland later in 2017 and the UK in 2018.

I’ll be touring Australia throughout July, giving talks in bookshops and libraries around the country and hope to meet as many of you as possible. I’ll share more details about the tour and the book soon. For now, I can tell you THE TRIP OF A LIFETIME is set in my two homelands – the Clare Valley of South Australia and Ireland. It’s filled with everything I like to explore in my novels: family ties and tensions, love, lies and memories. I loved writing it and I hope you’ll enjoy reading it.

Thanks again for your many messages over the past two years asking about a new book, and big thanks, too, for your patience!
