My inspiration…

Leave a comment

It’s already Wednesday! This week is flying by.

A week or two ago, I shared the symbol for the new series that I’m working on, ‘Wishful Harbor’. Several people have asked how a Georgia girl gets inspired to write a series based in a small New England seaside town, well, here’s the story.

In June of 1993, I took a tour of the New England states with my parents and their friends. It was exciting and I saw so many places that could inspire, but the little seaside town that we encountered has never left my mind or heart. I don’t remember the name, but I remember every detail of the little town.

It was situated off the main road and as we drove down a tree lined lane, it appeared. I remember the minute I saw the little town, my heart skipped a beat. I actually told everyone in the van we’d rented that when I grew up, LOL, I was already, well, let’s not go there. But, when I grew up, I wanted to live in this little seaside town. It was on the backside of an inlet and from the edge of town, you could see the sailboats in the inlet and the little marina where they served the most delicious clam chowder.

To say it was magical doesn’t even begin to describe the feeling I had. The little shops were owned by locals and they were so quaint. I fell in love. My writer’s brain was spinning even back then. As I walked up the sidewalk, looking up into the tree branches that spilled over the road and partially shaded the little shops, I took in the salty air. Yep, this was a little piece of Heaven.

This little town has always pulled at me, but when I decided to write ‘Wishful Harbor’, I decided to design it around that little town that made such an impact on me back then. Every detail in the descriptions for the book is based on that little town. So, as time goes on until the release of the first book, I’ll be sending out little tidbits of inspiration from my little New England town that still holds my heart to this day.

As always, good writing and May God Bless You…
