I thought it was time to post some pics from my trip to Anaheim for the Romance Writers of America national conference. It was my first trip to the US and I had a ball. Now I'm scheming ways to attend future US conferences!

Dinner with some fabulous Desire authors (L-R): Emily McKay, Charlene Sands, me, Janice Maynard, and my most excellent roomie, Yvonne Lindsay.

A humungous pretzel (cinnamon) and lemonade. The morning tea of kings.

At the Rita Awards ceremony with Hayson Manning and Barbara De Leo.

Having coffee a the hotel's Starbucks with Melanie Milburne and Nas Dean. Fun!

More Melbourne Photos

A few more photos from my Melbourne trip. :)

This is the front window of the Hopetoun Tea Rooms. We didn't go in because there was always a line up, but we'll definitely be trying them next trip.

Morning Tea with the fabulous Ebony McKenna:

The historic The Hotel Windsor, where we stayed:

Our charming room at The Hotel Windsor:

Melbourne, we'll be back! :)

A Little Holiday

A couple of weeks ago, I spent a few nights in Melbourne with my man. Good coffee, fascinating buildings, interesting laneways to explore and a couple of catch ups with friends - who could want more? So I thought I'd share a few snippets.

Coffee and macaroons at a teensy specialty shop hidden in a laneway:

Dinner at a yummy Italian restuarant with a gorgeous trio - Serena, Elvina and Margaret:

Mexican for lunch with Sharon Archer and her hubby:
