Finally, I can reveal to you the cover for my first book, Oceans Apart.

The beautiful cover was designed by Rebecca Berto of Berto Designs. Once we got over a few teething issues, the perfect picture was found and Rebecca worked her magic to create almost exactly what I had imagined. Many thanks Rebecca!

I would also like to thank Kristy from Book Addict Mumma for getting my cover seen on various blogs. Please sign up to her blog on the website. She writes wonderful reviews and is always happy to receive recommendations for new books to read.


And, without further ado, here is the synopsis to my debut book, Oceans Apart.


Nobody ever cares for second place.

Talented public relations associate, Annie Scott, knows second place well. She has never been anyone’s priority and is sick of wallowing in self pity, sick of being an option. In a snap decision, she flees her hometown of Nashville for the unknown shores of Sydney, Australia. There she can be whoever she wants to be. Perhaps, the enforced solitude will give her back her identity and kickstart a new path in life.

Professional surfer, Cam Hart, is home on leave from the Pro Tour, and in desperate need of some rest, relaxation and maybe, a little female company. All extremely achievable at his home in Bronte, Sydney. There will be women willing and waiting for him, of that he has no doubt. He’s never been a relationship kind of guy, and after his embarrassing defeat for the recent World Title, the idea of losing himself in between the sheets for some no-strings fun, definitely has appeal.

Fate throws Cam and Annie in each other’s path. Their attraction to each other is immediate. Cam believes he has found the perfect girl to distract him for a few weeks, while Annie is ready to throw caution to the wind and dive into a holiday romance. The two drifting souls soon realise that their chemistry and passion is more than they bargained for.

Cam has never wanted to entrust his heart to anyone again. But, with Annie, he sees that he may indeed want a future, a change from his impulsive and wild ways. Could Cam actually be capable of such change? Should Annie consider Cam to be more than a summer fling, or will she be bound by her insecurities and not believe him worth the risk? Will she return to her hometown, the same as she left it: alone.



Welcome to my new blog!

My name is Emma Fitzgerald.

I am a book lover. I will read most genres but romance is my favourite. I will read whenever I can.

I rediscovered my passion for books and writing just over a year ago, when my oldest children were both in school and I had recently purchased an iPad. The new world of e-books opened up to me and I haven’t stopped reading!

I have had many ideas for books over the years and have kept a record of them in many various notebooks. It was only this year that I actually started plotting and writing my first story. I hope to have this written and published in early 2014.

I am a stay at home mum in my everyday life and have loved every minute of watching my children grow. I had been seeking something more for me, as a person and not as a mother, over the past few years. Writing has given me this something more.

I have discovered many new authors over the last year but even more than that, I have found so many people who feel the same way about books, especially of the romance genre, and am now lucky enough to call them my friends.

I will keep this blog updated with books I have read and loved, authors who I admire and also the progress of my own work.

I look forward to interacting and sharing with you all!

Hugs & smiles!
