Visiting libraries in Australia and New Zealand
I’m lucky enough to get to travel to Australia and New Zealand and visit their public libraries as part of my work with NoveList. Even half a world away, I still felt quite “at home” in those libraries. The sense of belonging is there when I walk in: a table display featuring new releases, the circ desk, and a welcoming atmosphere. While I’m literally on the other side of the earth, walking into those libraries feels like walking into my home library.

Lust in the dust: Rural romances set in Australia
Following the immense success of Rachael Treasure’s Jillaroo in 2005, rural romance emerged as a beloved genre of Australian readers. These books celebrate rural life, farming, and close knit communities as well as the natural beauty of the Australian landscape. They are rich in atmosphere and feature strong, independent female heroines making their own way in the bush.
