Working as a student midwife in an Australian country hospital is never easy, but Belinda finds more trouble than most. 

There's the intern doctor who follows her around like an overgrown puppy, the dangerous local wildlife and her own secrets she must keep. When she finds herself without a place to live, what else can possibly go wrong?

Or is it time for something to go right?

Reviews for Water and Fire:

"Whales, whisky and love, great short story!" - Limeburners Whisky

"This is really good, I need more, it can't finish there xx" - Lauren Russell

Actually, the story doesn't finish here. This short story inspired a novel that's now available from Amazon and Smashwords. The novel contains explicit material that couldn't be contained in the short story here on Wattpad. If you wish to purchase the novel, click on the link on the right, below the cover.
