I am excited to introduce my upcoming series set in the fictional town of Orchard Bay, Wisconsin, a charming harbor village nestled upon the shore of the Door Peninsula, overlooking Lake Michigan.
When the time arrived to put these stories to paper, my mind's eye knew the characters had to live in and be entwined with the Great Lakes. The landscape of Door County sprang to mind, and it just fit. I've lived in such places too, and as the old saying goes, write what you know. Spending time with these characters and their lives, I quickly learned that their stories were organically woven into the peninsula, authentically hemmed into our Great Lakes lifestyle.
It's really no surprise the Great Lakes would figure prominently in this first series. Most of my career has been focused on writing about the Great Lakes region and I too genuinely appreciate living the freshwater life. As a writer, I enjoy writing about the places I know and love best.
Orchard Bay is a small town where second chances and new beginnings flow easily for some, but not for all. I hope you'll come along with me and I promise we'll have some fun while we can. I mean, why wouldn't it be fun? We'll be in Door County, after all.
