Character Sketch – Skyler Evans

Breakwater Lane Front Cover

Good morning! Today we’re talking about Skyler Evans, the lead male character in Breakwater Lane.

Skyler is from Breakwater Lane, born and raised. He’s from a hardworking family and has great values. Skyler tried life away from Wishful Harbor, going to college and working in Boston, but that wasn’t for him. He loves Wishful Harbor and all it has to offer. His home is on a cliff that overlooks the harbor.

Skyler is well liked in the small community. Everyone calls him when they need construction work. He’s trustworthy and able to fix just about anything he puts his mind to. One of his favorite things is to go for long walks on the beach.

Many years ago, he was in awe of a young girl that spent her summers in Wishful Harbor. But he never expected to see her again, until she walked up to the old deli and unlocked the door. His heart was shocked.

Don’t forget to preorder Breakwater Lane for only .99 until release day!

As always, good writing and May God Bless You…

Character Sketch – Jordan Reed…

Breakwater preorder ad

Good morning everyone! Today I want to talk about the main character in Breakwater Lane, the first book in the Wishful Harbor series.

Let’s me introduce you to the spunky, strong willed woman that brings Breakwater Lane to life. Her name is Jordan Reed. She was born in Georgia, but when her parents divorced, she moved with her mom to Denver. But as a child, she spent a couple of weeks every summer with her grandfather in Wishful harbor.

She’d enjoyed those summers. They’d cook together, go to the beach and climb the steps to the top of the lighthouse, then laugh as they reached the top. She’d gained her love of cooking while standing by her grandfather in his deli. Then, when her parents divorced, her mom moved her across the country. She no longer was able to spend her summers with her beloved grandfather.

But she carried on the love of cooking by going to culinary school and becoming a chef. Although her dream was to own a restaurant, she thought it was just a whim. Then when her grandfather died, she was called into a lawyers office for the will. Her grandfather had left her the deli. She was overwhelmed.

Upon arrival in Wishful Harbor, she wondered if she could live in a small town again. Would she be able to get by without the hustle and bustle of Denver? Then she set eyes on Skyler Evans and things began to fall into place, but there was something brewing in the small town of Wishful Harbor that would put everything she’d ever known to the test.

Ok, so, I can’t go much farther without giving away too much of the story, but as you can see, Jordan is a spunky woman with big ideas. You’ll have a love hate relationship with her. Tomorrow I’ll do a character sketch on Skyler Evans.

As always, good writing and May God Bless You…

My inspiration…

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…
