Aug. 10: We’ve started the actual writing of our second novel. The working title is Night Watch. It will be set in the Bahamas and involve sailing there, a venue we are very familiar with. We find it much easier to write in settings that we can visualize.
Like The Long Road to Paris, this story will involve both suspense and romance. Carter McDowell and Mary Katherine Connoly- Kat-will be the lead characters. Again, like The Long Road to Paris, we think this one will be told mostly from the male character’s point of view and involve a gutsy female character and a thoughtful, problem-solving male. But at this point, as every author knows, we don’t know exactly where this story will take us. Characters have a mind of their own and at some point, the author can only follow their lead. Who knows, maybe Ed, Lizzy and Marie-Claire will appear again! So, does this appeal to you? Leave your response.
If we are not too busy with author events for The Long Road to Paris this winter, we will take off for West End, Grand Bahamas Island on Silver Girl, our Catalina 310.
