jannas 1 - 6 Guess who managed to come away (for four months) without making a note of her blog log-in address! So I’m finally in touch again and so chuffed to announce that all six of my new-look medieval crime series, The Janna Chronicles,  are now out (see covers on the left) and are available as e-books from all e-book retailers. If you prefer print, please go to my publishers www.momentumbooks.com.au to order your copies. I’ve lived with Janna for many years and it is hard to say goodbye to my courageous and feisty heroine, but I am absolutely thrilled that she has taken on a new life – and the covers are beautiful!  I’m still overseas, in the UK now, researching and writing the sequel to I, Morgana and will be updating my blog on a regular basis, with pix from our travels and from my research for the new book, so please stay tuned! Meantime here is a glimpse of some of the many wonderful and diverse places we visited. Below left: a sobering reminder of the Battle of the Somme. The other two photos were taken at Monet’s beautiful garden at Giverny – but it’s impossible to do justice to the many and various flower vistas – and unfortunately my water lilies in the pond photos don’t look like anything much at all!DSCN2604DSCN2762DSCN2757


  1. Hi Henrietta – the garden is huge, on two sides of the road. One side has his house, which you can explore, plus all the ‘planned’ gardens in various colours: yellows and whites; reds and oranges; pinks and purples – it’s absolutely divine. It’s really hard to do justice to the beauty of it all. On the other side is a wilder garden with a huge pond in the middle and a bridge over it, and lots of waterlilies. I’ll post some pix of it on my blog in the next day or two – but I’m afraid they’re very disappointing. Not the water garden as such; it’s wonderful. Just don’t judge it by my photos – they haven’t come out very well at all, I’m afraid. But I did go to L’Orangerie in Paris to see his enormous waterlily paintings – gorgeous! I can certainly see where his inspiration came from.
