I'm not the sort to want to hurry through life preferring to stop and embrace all the moments offered to me, but I have to admit that last year was a tough one for many of my friends, family, and readers, and I am looking forward to a fresh start with new moments to enjoy.
As always, I have a fun lineup of exciting new stories planned for the upcoming year. There will be multiple books in both the Holiday Bay and Gooseberry Bay series, and I am working on a new "Bay" series set at an oceanfront resort which I feel has a lot of potential. I may even set the series on Shipwreck Island from the Summerhouse Reunion Three Part Story although that may complicate things if I decide to do audio. I'm still working out the specifics of the new series which I hope to launch late in 2021. I'll keep you updated as I move through the planning stage of the project and into the actual writing of book 1.
In addition to the books in the "Bay" series, I have books coming your way from Tess and Tilly, Zoe Donovan, and the folks living and working in Rescue Alaska. I may do a Whales and Tails but I'm not sure I'll be able to fit it in so right now a book in that series is in the maybe column.
