Dr. Andrew Lowman is an Australian Eye Specialist who has made it his goal in life to restore sight to those who would otherwise endure life with poor eyesight or blindness.
Medical facilities are not easily accessed in the wide-open spaces and isolation of the outback where the air is hot, flies are plenty and life is tough for those on the land.
Thanks to the Royal Flying Doctor Service, Andrew and his team are flown in to a cattle station near Bourke, NSW, where they conduct a regular clinic for the Aboriginals and others on the land in the area. Their time is divided between two stations and the town of Bourke itself. Andrew and his team follow this routine every second week giving the outback a service it wouldn’t otherwise receive.
Meet the team:
Dr. Andrew (Drew) Lowman – Eye Specialist
Dr. Cameron (Cam) O’Brien – Anaesthetist with a reputation for being a playboy.
Dr. of Nursing – Dr. Ruby Waters – An Aboriginal woman who grew up in Bourke and wants to give back to the people.
Nurse Allison (Ally) Sykes – Works out of Dubbo with the RFDS and is having a difficult pregnancy.
Nurse Linda Freemont – A nurse with the RFDS – first in Broken Hill, then in Dubbo. She replaces Allison when she is forced to resign due to difficulties with her pregnancy.
Dr. James Rigon – A qualified Doctor and Pilot with the RFDS.
Dr. Finn McAllister – Also a qualified Doctor and Pilot with the RFDS.
Drew is smitten with Linda from the time she arrives but could a relationship work?
Join the team as they deal with emergencies, rescue a young boy and celebrate recognition.
Become a part of the outback – the land, they call home.
Follow the lives of the characters as each story unfolds.
ANDREW’S OUTBACK LOVE – Book 1 in the Australian Outback Series.
No 2 on Amazon Best Sellers List December 2018, January 2019
I live in a small village of 300 people in sun-drenched Queensland, Australia with my hubby of 44 years, an elderly Jack Russell Terrier, known as Princess Perfect (aka Kelly) and a 26-year-old opinionated cockatiel who likes to wolf whistle at both males and females as they pass by.
We love to travel and have a large caravan which we roam the country in when we are not doing renovations on our home. We have also traveled overseas quite a lot but have put that on hold as our dog is too old now to leave in a kennel. She loves the travel in the van as does our bird.
One of my favorite places to visit is Hawaii.
In a previous life I worked as an ER and Theater Nurse for 37 years, I even did a few years of teaching the newly blinded how to adjust to life without sight. Hubby was a senior officer in the Navy and this took us all over Australia and included 3 1/2 years in Papua New Guinea.
I write many different genres, but Western Historical Romance and Australian Romance have a special place in my heart. I incorporate many of my life experiences into my books and although fiction, I include many facts.
In 2019 I am part of an anthology coming out on Valentine’s Day. There are 12 of us who have ‘retold’ Princess fairy tales. My story is ‘loosely’ based on Pocahontas and her passion for women’s rights. In March, I am part of The Calendar Men series. One man for each month, 12 authors and 12 very different stories. My month is March. January will release on 8 March and then a book will be released every 2 days. In May, the same 12 authors will follow up with Calendar Gals.
Apart from that, I will have Book 2 in my Outback Australia Series which is Ruby. I am waiting to speak with Aboriginal elders to gain facts from the area before I write her so will probably be mid-year.
I hope you take the opportunity to peruse my website and choose a genre you would like to read.
