Meet Rhonda Forrest

From an early age I developed a love for books and although there were many busy years, working and bringing up a family, I always continued to read.

After traversing several different careers, I studied as a mature age student and today continue to mix a teaching career with writing and travelling

A life-long love of reading has now also grown into a passion for writing and for creating novels that encompass the beautiful landscapes of Australia, the amazing history of our land and people, and the eclectic characters who call Australia home.

BEYOND THE GATE - MYSTERY ROMANCE

This novel has the perfect balance of mystery, romance and well-drawn and interesting characters in a wonderful setting. Author Leanne Lovegrove 

THE SHACK BY THE BAY - Set in the Whitsunday, this is the quintessential Aussie novel with your very well-crafted (and oh so real) characters, your unique Queensland landscapes, and typical Aussie lingo/slang. Authentic. That is the best way to describe this beautiful, little, Aussie treasure. (The Mad Hatter Book Reviewer)

KICK THE DUST - Amazon Reviewer - My Afghan parents came to Australia with me as a baby in the early 1990s as refugees. This book really resonated with me in terms of the Afghan references and assimilation of the refugees into the Art group and community.
