Hi, I'm Joanne.

I write stories with happy endings. Is that a spoiler alert? Probably, but sometimes it’s best to know these things upfront.

My novels will take you from Melbourne to Bali, out to the rolling hills of the Cotswolds, and back to the lights of London and Hong Kong. They also take in the dramatic landscape of Queenstown, and the picturesque wilderness of the Milford Track in New Zealand.

I write the books that I like to read - so if you like your love stories spiced with some travel, a little fun, a lot of friendship, the occasional daggy pop song, yummy food, and some seriously sexy men then you’ve come to the right place.

Mostly a traveling day today but caught up with @wodwo_music this arvo, a visit to this incredible bookshop (completely overwhelming in an all my bookshop dreams come true sort of way) & in Matlock Bath the biggest portion of haddock, chips & mushy peas I’ve seen. For the record my attempt at it was dismal indeed. Off to The Cotswolds tomorrow. #traceysontour #cromford #scarthinbooks #matlockbath
Well, that’s a wrap on Grassington & the Yorkshire Dales - & we’ve loved every mini of it. Next stop Bakewell in the Peak District for an overnight stay before heading into The Cotswolds. #traceysontour #grassington #yorkshiredales
So we had plans today to spend our last day in Yorkshire seeing more of the amazing scenery & walking some more. Instead we’ve both hit that wall that you sometimes hit when you’re on holidays. So instead we wandered the RHS gardens just outside of Harrogate for ages, stopped for a pint of Black Sheep brewed not far from here in Masham, called in at the oldest sweet shop in the world at Pateley Bridge (they have the Guinness World record to prove it) & took one last look at the fabulous scenery in these parts. Tomorrow we begin heading south, but without a doubt we’ll be back to this part of the country again some day. Thank you Yorkshire, you’ve been great. #traceysontour #yorkshiredales #loveyorkshire #rhsharlowcarr
Today was all about 2 things: a pilgrimage to Bronte land aka Haworth and Sunday lunch. Tick and tick. #haworth #traceysontour #bronteparsonage
Welcome to Grassington in the Yorkshire Dales. It’s best known for being Darrowby in All Creatures Great & Small & for using a lot of Union Jack bunting. #traceysontour #grassington #bunting #yorkshiredales
Relocation day from Westow to the Yorkshire Dales and Grassington, our home for the next few nights. The scenery was stunning - sparsely, bleakly beautiful up around Tan Hill & more pastoral around Kettlewell. I’d go as far as saying the drives from Tan Hill to Hawes and then from Hawes through to Grassington were possibly the most scenic roads we’ve driven. Narrow & twisty I was glad Grant was driving. Lunch was up at Tan Hill Inn - the highest inn in the UK & also the one that hit the news just before Christmas last year when the pub was snowed in for days. Also stopped at the Wensleydale creamery in Hawes for some local cheese. #traceysontour #tanhillinn #tanhill #buttertubspass #hawes
