Rose O’Carroll is the eternal optimist and never stops believing that she will one day find’ her one’ even though she’s still single and hitting 40. In her search for love, she bravely decides to pack up her comfortable life in Australia and move to London. Guided by her special friends — her angels — she quickly settles in her new life; lands a great job; makes new friendships and begins her spiritual journey.

It didn’t take long until Joe DeMarco, the handsome American business man turns Rose’s world upside down and changes it forever. Rose intuitively knows she has met her twin soulmate. But how does she cope when he tells her it’s just the wrong time?

Everything happens for a reason and soon Rose discovers why she had to meet Joe DeMarco when the timing was wrong. She had someone else to meet first…and it wasn’t only the dishy Dr St Claire.


I see your novel is inspired by a real life experience. Is Rose O’Carroll a fictional you? 

Yes Rose O’Carroll is a fictional me…although she might not be that fictional!

 When did you first develop an interest in reading tarot cards?

I have always had an interest in the metaphysical world and from about the age of 16 I started going to tarot readers, palm readers etc. I always intrigued to know what the future would hold and I was especially eager to know when I would meet the man of my dreams. One day my friend gave me a pack of tarot cards as a going away gift and a few years later another friend gave me a subscription to the psychic college in London and that’s where I learned how to read the tarot. However, I never thought for a second that I would end up doing tarot readings for a living, but I do…and I love it!

Do you have any plans for your next novel and if so, can you tell us about it?

I have just finished writing the sequel to I Listened To My Heart, titled Maktub: It is written. And I am very excited about it. Unfortunately, I can’t tell you too much as I don’t want to give anything away but it does have a few twists and turns and if you have read book one you will definitely want to read the sequel.
