Author Interview – AUTUMN MACARTHUR

I’m interviewed today at the lovely Robin Mason’s blog. Please call in and comment there!

I’d like to give a big welcome to AUTUMN MACARTHUR to my blog.


rem: Thank you for joining us today, AUTUMN. Tell us a little about yourself. Where were you raised? Where do you live now?

AUTUMN: Hi, I’m Autumn! I was born and grew up in Sydney, Australia, in a semi-rural suburb not far from the beach. Once I completed my nursing and midwifery training, I moved around a bit, wanting to experience more of what Australia had to offer. I spent some time in a country town, then moved to the outback. I came to England for a one year working holiday nineteen years ago, and stayed! I now live in a small market town just north of London, not far from Cambridge.

rem: Love how “one year” turned into nineteen…. How does life differ from Australia and other locales? How is it the same?

ALISTAIR MURRAY ~ Adrenaline Junkie Hero of More Than Friends

Alistair, hero of More Than Friends, is interviewed today on Foreign Affaire!

Foreign Affaire

More Than Friends by Autumn Macarthur

Catriona Maclean is determined to make the seaside day out for the special needs children in her Edinburgh church a success. She’s a nurse, her older brother is disabled, and she knows just how tough that can be for a family. But when a last minute hitch leaves her with no choice but to call on the man she’s been secretly in love with since her teens for help, only her promise to God will carry her through.

Alistair Murray has seen Catriona almost every day for the last twenty years. She’s a work colleague, his best friend’s little sister, one of the guys. They even went to Sunday School together. The last thing he wants is to spend his day off working on her project, but for Cat, he’ll do it.

Neither of them realise just how much God can use one single day to work on their lives…

I’m moving! Change of website

Just to let you know, I’m redirecting my web address to my other website,

This site will remain live as but I won’t be adding any new content here, if all goes well.

If you visit me at the new address, you’ll notice the content is almost identical to this one. I’ve posted the same things to both sites for the past few months until I figured out how to make the transition work!

You should find in the next few days will redirect automatically to the other website. I’m praying all this works and I don’t lose my email. I’ve been wanting to do this for ages and been too scared of breaking things!

I do hope you’ll continue to visit with me!

Be still

Psalm 46:10 Be still, and know that I am God

It’s not long since I last posted this, but it’s something I can’t be reminded of too often! Maybe you too?

Lord, in my busy days, help me to remember to slow down, be still before You, and put You at the centre of my life. Only then can all the busy-ness have meaning and purpose.

Singleness of heart

Ezekiel 11:19 – A new spirit

Image of pretty lovelock with Bible verse Ezekiel 11:19, to promote Autumn Macarthur's sweet Christian romance Forget Paris

And I will give them singleness of heart and put a new spirit within them.
I will take away their stony, stubborn heart and give them a tender, responsive heart.
Ezekiel 11:19 NLT

Lord, You know my heart. You know where my heart is hardened to You and to other people. You know the secret corners where I hold resentment and anger and grudges. Make my heart new. Fill me with Your love. Make me tender and responsive. Thank You!

How God wants us to live

I Thess 5:16-18 Full of joy

Image of orange tulips, with Bible verse 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18, from inspirational romance author Autumn Macarthur

Always be full of joy. Never stop praying. Whatever happens, always be thankful. This is how God wants you to live in Christ Jesus.

Lord, help me to live a joyous life, the way You want me to live. Help me to feel thankful for all the good in my life, instead of focusing on what isn’t quite the way I’d prefer it to be. Help me to trust that You always answer prayer. Thank You!

Don’t worry

Philipians 4:6,7 – Pray about everything

Image of sun on grass with Bible verse Phil $:6-7, from Christian romance author Autumn Macarthur

Don’t be anxious about things; instead, pray. Pray about everything. He longs to hear your requests, so talk to God about your needs and be thankful for what has come. And know that the peace of God (a peace that is beyond any and all of our human understanding) will stand watch over your hearts and minds in Jesus, the Anointed One. (The Voice)

Lord, I love that You truly care for us and want to hear what’s troubling us. Like a good and loving parents, You want us to talk to You about our needs and worries, not bottle them up. Just telling You brings peace to our hearts and minds. Thank You for that! 🙂
