Please welcome Australian author, Nicole Hurley-Moore, who's here today to talk about her obsessions, a few of which I share with her!
Nicole grew up in Melbourne and has travelled extensively, whilst living her life through the romance of books.
Her first passion in life has always been her family, but since doing her BA Honours in Medieval Literature, she has devoted her time to writing romance.
Nicole is a full-time writer who lives in the Central Highlands of Victoria with her family, where they live in the peaceful surrounds of a semi-rural town.
She is the author of the immensely popular novels, McKellan's Run and Harley's Grange.

Oh, and feel free to leave a comment below about the things that you are obsessed with. We'd love to hear from you.
I don’t really have a weird hobby or a talent but I’m guilty of having a bit of an obsessive nature.
There are certain things that I do obsess over so I thought I’d share a few.
I do love history books (yes, I was the geeky girl in the back row of the classroom with my head in a book).
I’m particularly fond of histories pertaining to the Dark Ages (and yes, I know that some believe that this period should be lumped in with the Middle Ages but I’m old school), Medieval, Georgian and Victorian periods. For Christmas I was given a book on Anglo-Saxon food and drink and I’m ridiculously excited about it.
Vikings – because you know, Vikings.
Victorian period jewellery because it’s sentimental, beautiful and I’m a magpie who is attracted to pretty shiny things.
Fragrance – Hello, my name’s Nicole and I’m a perfume addict. I love it and even though my dressing table is groaning from the weight of the glass bottles I’m still working at expanding the collection.
I’m also obsessed with stationery – pens, paper, highlighters and of course sticky notes (the cuter the better). Because how can you write a book or anything for that matter without uber cute sticky notes?

About the Book
A compelling tale of betrayal, tragedy, healing and love that proves first impressions aren’t always right.
Rebecca Duprey is working day and night to keep the family sheep station, Bluestone Ridge, afloat. But Bec's father, who's been in a wheelchair since a farming mishap, keeps second-guessing her decisions. Now, to add Bec's woes, her unfaithful ex-boyfriend has started lurking around, and the adjoining farm she'd hoped to buy has been snapped up by a guy from the city called Matt Harvey.
After leaving his job in advertising, Matt became a bestselling novelist. But since the death of his fiancée in a car accident, he's had severe writer's block and is desperately hoping his move to the country will help him deal with his grief and allow him to focus on completing his next book. Problem is, he seems to have started off on the wrong foot with his new neighbour, Bec Duprey.
Bec isn't quite sure when she started feeling attracted to Matt, but she's determined not to succumb to his charms. And Matt isn't sure when his feelings changed about Bec; all he knows is he can't get her out of his mind. Can Bec and Matt overcome their fear of loss to find love and happiness with each other...?
