This past weekend several LoveCats attended Romance Writers of Australia's annual conference at the Sofitel Wentworth in Sydney where they were busy teaching and learning, catching up with writing friends, and celebrating some amazing accomplishments.
We are delighted to share a few highlights from the weekend:
|Rachel Bailey presented a stellar Friday workshop for aspiring and emerging writers.|
|Conference presenters Clare Connelly and Rachel Bailey with Amy Andrews.|
|Shannon Curtis co-compered the Awards Night ceremony with her customary charm and wit.|

The LoveCats are an extremely proud pride and we are thrilled to congratulate our fellow Cats on their recent achievements, with a special shout out to Kandy Shepherd on winning the Ruby Award -- that is shorthand for Romantic Book of the Year -- for Best Short Romance with Conveniently Wed to the Greek. Well done, Kandy!
