About the author (source: http://www.jennjmcleod.com)
No stranger to embracing a second chance or trying something different, I took my first tentative steps towards a tree change in 2004, escaping Sydney’s corporate chaos to buy a small cafe in the seaside town of Sawtell.
Moving to the country was like coming home.
After ten years running a B&B on my NSW property, I now get to write my contemporary Australian fiction (life-affirming novels of small town life and the country roots that run deep) grey nomad style–a wandering writer of no fixed address. Yep! I’ve hit the road in a Ford and a fifth wheeler –writing in and under the southern cross. (Check out my blog post on that)
Readers and reviewers alike have enthusiastically received my debut, House for all Seasons, placing it at #5 on the 2013 Nielsen’s Best Selling Debut Novel list. Thank you everyone! Simmering Season is book two in my Seasons Collection (all standalone reads) with Season of Shadow and Light out now and my 2016 release, titled The Other Side of the Season, to be published by Simon and Schuster Australia in May 2016.
