Top ten things I love about Fremantle, Western Australia
The Face the Music series is set in Fremantle. I have worked in Fremantle and live not far from there. It’s a great city with its own vibe. A lot of great bands also started out in Fremantle so when I decided to write about an up and coming Aussie band I knew where to set the stories. Here’s a few of the things I love about Freo.
1-The music, aside from great local bands there is also buskers
2-Ice cream, in the middle of summer (~40 Celsius) there is nothing better than a double scoop of choc hazelnut ice cream.
3-The markets will all kinds of things from homemade soaps, to artworks and food.
4-The little boutiques. I picked up some very funky shoes a couple of years ago.
5-All the delicious food. There are so many cafés and places to grab a bite. There is something for everyone.
6-The history. Fremantle has several historic building including the roundhouse and the prison.
7-Museums, one of which specializes in shipwrecks.
8-new age shops. There are a few of them bursting with crystals and tarot cards.
9-When walking around, no one ever seems to be in a rush. It’s so relaxed.
10-Fresh fish markets which makes for the best fish and chips.
While many of my stories are set in the US it was really nice to write a series set in Australia, especially Western Australia. I hope readers in the US will enjoy visiting my home state through my books 🙂
The fabulous New Adult series from Shona Husk continues: he wants to shut out the world; she wants to invite it in…
Mike Peterson has learned the hard way that the good really do die young. He and his mum only have each other, and now she’s losing her second battle with cancer. He wants to stay with her; she wants him to keep following his dreams. He doesn’t have long to decide and the rest of the band is waiting on him. Whatever choice he makes, he will lose.
Living at home has become impossible for Ava Brand. Her very religious, very traditional grandmother would like to see her married off to a nice Indian boy. But Ava wants to make her own choices. Meeting Mike gives her a chance to rebel.
What starts off as easy rapidly becomes complicated, as their problems expand and emotions bubble to the surface. Neither has time for complicated, as Ava’s family discovers her extra-curricular activities and Mike has to make incredibly hard choices. But love never waits for the perfect time, and Mike and Ava are going to have to decide if they’re playing for fun, or playing for keeps.
