Honey Brown lives in country Victoria, Australia, with her husband and two teenage children. She began writing in 2000 and is the author of five critically acclaimed novels. A life-changing blow came for Honey in her late-twenties when she was involved in a farm accident. The resulting spinal injury left her confined to a wheelchair.
Candid about the tough road back from acquiring a disability, Honey now focuses her energy on writing, traveling with her family and engaging in the promotional side of being a popular novelist.
By Honey Brown
Emotion, seduction and passion wind through six intricately connected short stories, where strong Australian women embrace their most intimate desires, and men are more than just their suit and tie.
Apparent strangers are bound together by one tragic event, the effect of which is felt from the urban streets of Sydney to the dusty bars of Western Australia.
Six Degrees uses the allure, the action or the absence of physical connection to explore these everyday character’s flaws, quirks and strengths. For the first time, critically-acclaimed author Honey Brown has made sexual attraction the intriguing hero of each story.
PRAISE FOR HONEY BROWN AND SIX DEGREES
'It is notoriously difficult to execute short-story romance well, and Six Degrees contains some of the best I’ve read. Brown’s writing is exquisite'
'Compelling, provocative and memorable, Six Degrees will linger long after you finish the book'
Helene Young, author of Half Moon Bay
'An intelligent look at desire and temptation through the eyes of a disparate cast of characters. Highly recommended. Four stars'
Good Reading Magazine
'With a foray into a genre different from her full-length novels, Honey Brown proves she’s an author for every reader'
Jenn J Mcleod, author of House for all Seasons
'A cracking read. Honey Brown is an extraordinary talent. She not only got me to finish a book, but managed to make me pant and blush while I was reading. Can’t remember enjoying a book as much as this for a long, long time'
Catherine Deveny, comedian and writer
'I loved Six Degrees - the characters and setting are so enjoyably Aussie and the central themes of attraction and connection are subtly explored. Honey Brown applies literary styling to the ‘RuRo’ genre - the stories are as good as the sex scenes!'
Lisa Dempster, director of Melbourne Writers Festival
'This is erotica at its best – as decadent and indulgent as the softest of chocolate melting in your mouth'
Book Muster Down Under
'I read this book in one sitting, completely drawn in by Brown’s honest storytelling, interesting and believable characters, and her insight into what is one of the fundamental aspects of the human experience (sexual attraction)'
Write Note Reviews
'Six Degrees is a fun and very satisfying read about the power of sexual attraction and our intrinsic need to feel emotionally and physically connected'
