This New Year is rocking along pretty well for me so far. Yeah, there’s the COVID issue. It’s not going away any time soon, so like most everyone else, I’m masking up and being careful and wondering when I’ll finally get the vaccine—but also, I’m starting a whole new series.
This new series will be three books long and bring you the stories of three half-sisters raised by a loving, eccentric aunt on a farm in the Hood River area of Oregon. I know that many readers associate me with my long-running series of stories about the Bravo family. This project is all new, not a Bravo in sight.
And I have to tell you, I’m having a ball with it so far. I love the Bravos and love building on their huge family with branches all over the USA—and even in Europe, for those who remember The Bravo Royales. But starting something all new is so freeing for me as a writer. I’m not hemmed in by anything I’ve set up before. I don’t have to keep looking up details about ongoing characters to make sure I’m not contradicting what I’ve previously written. Right now, the work feels wide open for me. I’m writing fast and loving the story I’m getting on the page.
At this point, I don’t have firm titles or even a series title for these three books, but the farm where the sisters grew up and where a good bit of the action takes place is called Wild Rose Farm, so at this point it’s looking like the overall series title might be Three Wild Roses or maybe Wild Rose Sisters. I’ll keep you posted on that.
Until my next note to you, I hope you’re taking care of yourself and reading books that thrill your senses and make your heart sing.
Stay safe and well,
