The Guy from the Internet

A sweet romance with a touch of family drama.

Holly Chee does not have her life together. She's flip-flopped on uni courses and career choices, and somehow scared off her long-term fiancée-to-be, much to the chagrin of her immigrant parents.

But she does have her streaming channel, where she broadcasts her art from her one-bedroom Mount Lawley apartment. And she has that guy from France... assuming he's even who he says he is.

The Guy From The Internet is a sweet #OwnVoices Asian-Australian romance novella, set in the world of Somerville Downs.

Now available on Amazon in digital and paperback.

There's room in the world for a HEA

You don't need me to tell you that the world is in some trying times. You also don't need me to tell you that even before the dark days of 2020 many peoples all over the world were already facing some form of crisis.

But this year in particular, I'm finding unusually significant solace in romance books and wholesome TV. Maybe it's a byproduct of getting older and seeing/experiencing more of the unpleasant (lol understatement) things the world has to offer, but HEAs (Happily Ever Afters) have never proved their worth so convincingly as they do right now.

Sometimes it's not the point that life is difficult right now, because things could just as swiftly and suddenly turn a corner. Even if they're unrealistic — as romances are so often described — HEAs bring about a happier, more optimistic state of mind. One that reminds us to count our blessings, be grateful for those who love us, and that there's always a way to work through our challenges.
