On the Road to Alaska

Against-the-Tide(300x500)The idea for a trilogy set in Alaska began when my husband and I took a road trip several years ago all the way to Fairbanks and back.  We loved it, couldn’t wait to go again.

A second trip seemed the perfect opportunity to develop plots and characters for books about the three brothers I had decided to write.  I wanted to get deeper into setting and story, and at the same time enjoy an exciting adventure.

Having traveled the famous Alkan Highway on the first trip, I knew the five-thousand-mile journey wouldn’t be any picnic–especially not in the back of a pickup camper!  But the beauty of the vast landscape and its interesting people were a lure that was impossible to resist.

And so the Brodies of Alaska trilogy was born.  Dylan, Nick, and Rafe Brodie all have high-action adventure stories that lead them to the perfect woman.

In AGAINST THE TIDE, Rafe Brodie is the owner of a small fleet of charter fishing boats in Valdez, Alaska.  He’s the oldest of the brothers and the most dedicated bachelor.  But there’s a woman in town who intrigues him.  Olivia Chandler recently moved to Valdez, appearing, it seemed, out of nowhere.  Olivia runs the local café, but mostly she keeps to herself.

Kat - Ventura Star (500x350 (150dpi)The woman is beautiful but mysterious.  Rafe senses a troubled past, but can’t stop his fierce attraction, or the feeling he needs to protect her.  When his first mate is murdered, Rafe and Olivia work together to help solve the crime.  But as the danger heightens, Rafe is more and more convinced Olivia is running from something–or someone.

Something terrible is coming to Valdez and even Rafe can’t protect her forever.

I hope you’ll watch for Rafe and Olivia in AGAINST THE TIDE.  Till then, very best wishes and happy reading, Kat

    I love learning about an author’s inspiration; and while I live a good road trip, I don’t think I could do a 5,000 mile trip! The new trilogy sounds intriguing-I’ll have to add it to my to-read pile!
