You've found the home on the net for romance writer, LaVerne Clark. Thanks for visiting! :)

I write suspense and light fantasy/paranormal set in the beautiful country of New Zealand. A land of myths and magic, Aotearoa (Maori for Long White Cloud) has always been a storytelling nation and it is my pleasure to share mine with you.

Make yourself your drink of choice, stay a while and feel free to leave comments. I love to meet new friends.

Heartpounding suspense and fantasy Downunder

Doing the Happy Dance!


Yep - that's EXACTLY how I feel right at this moment!

Last week, I got a wonderful email from THE best editor in the world (Fran, you rock) saying she would like to offer me a contract for BEYOND THE SHADOWS. 

This book has been the hardest one I've ever written. Its gone through more drafts than any other with lots of changes and a major re-write to the main plot, but it was totally worth it. Now, it is a book I'm super proud of and one I can't wait to share with you all.

Hot cops; sizzling chemistry; ghosts and the afterlife; a serial killer on the loose, all set in the magical land of New Zealand. These guys could be Nate and Kelly:

Oh! And the most exciting part for me? This will be available in PRINT as well as digital! That mad   dream I have of swimming about in a pile of my books re Scrooge McDuck may well be a possibility yet! :)  


  1. Woohoo! Love the Seinfeld video!

    Congratulations! I know how hard you worked on this book and it well-deserves to be published.

    Can I have a signed copy please????

  2. Yay LaVerne!! This is so exciting!!!!

    I'd love a signed copy too! :)

  3. Thanks so much girls!

    Don't you worry, I'll be sending you your signed copies as soon as I get my delivery :) After all, the book wouldn't have happened without you, xxoo

  4. Can't wait to get my hands on this one!

    1. Thanks so much, Lilly! I can't wait either! Especially that 'hands on' comment :) What a day that will be! xx

  5. Congrats LaVerne! Dance away! BEYOND THE SHADOWS seems to have all the amazing plots - Hot cops; sizzling chemistry; ghosts and the afterlife; a serial killer on the loose, all set in the magical land of New Zealand.I'll be waiting to read BEYOND THE SHADOWS too.

    1. Hehehe - I'm still dancing, Rebecca! :) Thank you so much for your support. It means so much to me. I'll keep you posted on dates :)
