    Peter watt. Yes great author

  • January 9, 2015 at 12:07 pm

    KM Gollard is by far the best author her books are amazing . So captivating can’t put them down once you start reading them.

    • January 10, 2015 at 12:03 am

      Unless you have read every book by every author on the list, you cannot possibly say one is better than the other. You can, like me, vote for your favourite, but you can’t presume to know who is the best.

    GO TONY. The best Author in a long time, with the littlest fan.

  • January 10, 2015 at 12:05 am

    I love many of the authors listed, but currently my fave is Joy Dettman, with her Woody Creek series. I couldn’t put them down and was depressed for some time when I finished the last one.

    Peter Watt is Australia’s best author very well researched for the history part of his writing and her just keeps you completely enthralled from start to finish you just cant’ wait to see what happens to his characters. He is not afraid to kill off some of the good guys, albiet to the dismay of some.

    Just voted for an amazing Aussie author KM Golland – her books are a fantastic read not just great romances, but a dose of humour. Be warned she is talented and her stories will leave you crying before laughing and cheering for the leading couple.

    Love Liz Lovelocks style of writing. Excellent books from an amazing author.
