Author Jasmine Stevens is bringing her debut novel, 'Waiting for You', to MidCoast Libraries, in two not-to-be missed author events for romance enthusiasts.
Based in Newcastle, Jasmine enjoys having the serene local beaches and the tranquil countryside of The Hunter Valley close by, both of which have influenced her writing.
Jasmine will be visiting Tea Gardens Library on August 23 from 2.30pm to 3.30pm and Harrington Library on August 24 from 10.30am to 11.30am, to chat about writing 'Waiting for you' and her love of reading.
"We have so many romance fans across the Mid Coast who we know will love this author talk," Chris Jones, MidCoast Council Libraries manager said.
"Jasmine is certainly one to watch and this book has been getting great reviews."
Jasmine's author talks are free but bookings are essential.

About 'Waiting for You'
The book tells the story of Charlotte Denver who left the quaint country town of Holbrook 18 years ago, after a tragic accident.
Now, she's back in town to renovate her old family home, which will feature in the magazine where she's employed as a journalist.
Making the rundown house sellable will allow Charlotte to sever all ties with her tragic past and finally move forward with her life.
That is until the one person she'd spent all these years trying to forget is contracted by her magazine's editor to help her complete the job.
Will Beckett's no longer the 12-year-old kid who used to play practical jokes on her, tease her and make her belly laugh.
Now he's a ruggedly handsome, sweet talking, successful builder.
Will never thought he would see his best friend again, but now she's back, as stubborn and strong-willed as ever.
Her return reminds him all over again of everything she lost because of him, and he desperately wants her forgiveness. Can Will break through Charlotte's wall of defence or will his heart be broken again?
