About Narelle

I grew up on the beautiful northern beaches in Sydney, Australia and I've never lost my love for the ocean. I now reside in Canberra with my husband and children. I started writing romance in 1998 and when I discovered the inspirational romance genre in 1999, I knew I'd found a genre I would love to write. My contemporary romance stories are set in Australia.

Writing became a lower priority when my children were young. But my desire to write didn't diminish and I started writing again during my precious few hours of 'kid-free' time.

In 2011 I served as Co-President of the Faith, Hope and Love Inspirational Chapter of Romance Writers of America (FHL) and I served as Vice President of FHL from 2008-10. I'm a member of American Christian Fiction Writers, Romance Writers of Australia and Omega Writers Inc.

In September 2012 I sold my first book to Harlequin® Love Inspired® Heartsong Presents. I was thrilled to sign a six book contract in February 2013 for two 3-book series of contemporary inspirational romances set in Australia with Aussie characters. The first 3-book series was set in the fictitious small town of Snowgum Creek near the Snowy Mountains and the second 3-book series was set in Sydney. My debut book, Falling for the Farmer was released in February 2014. The book I initially sold, Her Tycoon Hero, was my fourth book release in November 2014.

I released my first independently published novella, His Perfect Catch in July 2015. It was available for a limited time in the SPLASH! multi-author boxed set. In January 2016 I independently released The Bridesmaid's Hero (A Snowgum Creek Novella). The novella was part of the limited edition Love Blossoms multi-author boxed set.

My ninth book, Seaside Christmas (A Sydney Sweethearts Novella) released in October 2016. The novella was available for a limited time in An Aussie Summer Christmas contemporary inspirational romance multi-author boxed set.

During 2017 I'm updating and revising my Heartsong Presents backlist titles. They will be independently released in ebook and print format.
