Clarice Jarrod has the job of dreams and a newly purchased little two-bedroom house with loads of character in Nottoway, Virginia. The setting would be idyllic — if being terrorized hadn’t come with the mortgage. Lead to the 35-year old murder of the previous homeowner, secrets won’t stay buried. Whoever killed the whisky-still operator now has Clarice in his crosshairs.
Tylan Chance, Nottoway’s most eligible yet confirmed bachelor, finds his resolve tested by the pretty school teacher. Burned by a previous marriage, Tylan is cautious of relationships. As he helps Clarice unravel the past and search for the culprit, the strings holding his heart loosen to form a future.
The person the readers want you to write about but you haven’t yet: The triplets from my “Welcome to Nottoway” series. WHITE LIGHTNING is a rewrite of the first title in the series. The triplets were eight and now they are grown and ready for their own stories. It was the most popular series with my readers. I wrote four books about Nottoway and there are many characters readers fell in love with. I still receive letters requesting their stories and updates on other characters. In the next book, the triplets’ mother has to confront the birth father of her children. Now I’m also happy to be able to present the triplets stories to you. In the coming months I will reintroduce the other three titles and the triplet stories.
Questions: A perfect nuclear world may consist of married parents and 2.5 children. In most instances, even though both parents work, they are fortunate enough to be able to afford child care. Usually they only work one job, and although they’re busy, they have enough time left over to spend with their children. Children participate in cultural activities and sports. They can be children, and not take on adult roles.
Today, in so many instances, that is no longer the case. Since so many children grow up in single parent households, many children have to take on more adult responsibilities, such as the care of younger siblings, especially when the single parent has to work more than one job. Many don’t even have the opportunity to date until they become adults. What inherent problems arise from this upbringing? Could the child feel she/he hasn’t had a life and choose not to have children? Or do these responsibilities build character and strength? Are they more likely to be successful? In today’s world do you see more and more children taking on adult responsibilities? What are some of the positive and negative effects?
