My Lost Girls trilogy will be released on tomorrow, and I’m very excited for everyone to finally have a chance to read the three novels.
For the past few summers, I have been writing trilogies that have a single premise linking all three books. This year, I tried something very different from my usual choice of link premise. My lost girls are my three heroines. They were notorious as little girls when they were the sole survivors of a shipwreck in the Caribbean. They were rescued by British sailors and returned to England where they were separated and handed out to distant relatives.
The link premise is a common thread where I can bind all three books together. The plot thread begins with Book #1, and it continues to the end of Book #3. It lets me use recurring characters, and it gives me an interesting way to bind the three stories together to the final conclusion on the last page.
The 3 novels will be released on the same day, so you can read the whole series at once without having to wait for the next installment. They’ll be available both as print books and e-books. My Lost Girls trilogy! Coming Tomorrow!
Tell us a little about your latest trilogy.
This year, I’m releasing my “Lost Girls” trilogy.
For several summer now, I’ve been writing linked trilogies that have a defined premise that carries the plot through all three novels. In this series, the link is that the heroines were traveling to Jamaica with their families when they were little girls, and their ship sank in a terrible storm. Against all odds, they were the only survivors. They were found on a deserted island by British sailors, but no one could figure out how they survived—and they were too young to explain much of what had happened to them.
They were returned to England, where they enjoyed a bit of notoriety. Then they were separated and doled out to distant relatives. They never saw each other again. When the novels start, it’s the 20th anniversary of the shipwreck, and the three women’s lives are pitched off in new and exciting directions where they meet the men of the dreams.
Have your writing habits had to change due to COVID-19?
I’m a very lucky person in that I’ve made enough money as a novelist to be able to stay home and write for a living for around 15 years now. It’s every writers dream, and I’ve been able to live it. I work at home, so when the lock-down started, nothing really changed for me. I have a very quiet life, where I’m tied to my house and my computer.
That said, I live in LA, so we’ve been in lock-down for quite awhile now and have just been starting to reopen (with what is starting to look like disastrous results!) Mostly, what I’ve found is that I’m “itching” to go out and do things, which is funny, because I spend all my time at home, working. But with my being told I can’t go places, I want to go places constantly. I’m contrary that way.
Is there anything else you’d like to share with your fans?
Thank you for buying and reading my books. I’ve been able to entertain people with my fun stories for twenty years now! I’m so lucky, and I was only able to do that because people were kind enough to let me into their lives.
I’m always grateful for everyone’s kind attention.
