Hello everyone and thank you Authors’ Lounge for the opportunity to share my story with your wonderful readers.
Sky Watcher: Déjà-Vu, book 2 in the Sky Watcher Book Series, is a story about courage, determination, friendship, and love, but it also shows us the difference a single choice can make to one’s life. And if that is not enough, it all comes with a sprinkling of magic.
Charlotte Harper’s best friend Jessica is shocked to receive a letter detailing Charlotte’s journey back in time to save her possible ancestor Elizabeth. The letter written in 1819, speaks of the consequences of Charlotte’s actions and asks for Jessica’s help.
Charlotte’s adventure begins with a Wiccan ritual and spell that takes her back to 1818. After arriving at a small town on the shore of Owasco Lake, New York, she settles in, finding work at the general store to earn her keep. While awaiting Elizabeth’s arrival, she forms strong bonds with those around her, finding herself part of a tight-knit circle of friends and deeply in love.
Charlotte knows that walking through one door often closes many others, so when she dreams of warnings from the future she left behind, she wants to understand. Is Jessica reaching out to her? What is she trying to tell her? Knowing that one single choice can change who is your friend, your lover, who lives and who dies, Charlotte must choose her path wisely so as not to make the same mistakes.
Growing up I was always interested in the health sciences, enjoying physiology and pathology, and finished university with a BSc in Biology. Added to this knowledge, I was able to combine my interests in herbal healing, stones, the moon and of course, time travel and its paradoxes, making each an essential part of Charlotte’s personality and knowledge base. At the same time, I researched Wiccan beliefs and rituals, the ‘energies’ within stones, herbals and some Native American traditions. I learned some interesting things that I was able to incorporate into the story—little details that the reader might enjoy, without ever realizing they’d like to know. Of course, I would also hope that readers would feel that they’d made some new friends, friends they would miss when they got to ‘the end’.
This is the second story of the Sky Watcher Book Series and starts at the beginning of Charlotte’s adventure. Classified as women’s fiction/historical romance, it was intended for a female audience 18+. However, I have had male readers tell me that they enjoyed the story and appreciated and related to Charlotte’s character and perspective.
Sky Watcher: Déjà-Vu, was released in April. Together, Sky Watcher: A Shadow in Time, and Sky Watcher: Déjà-Vu, show us that there are those happenings in life that are not the result of our choices, that some events are simply inevitable.
I am quite certain there will more adventures for Charlotte and her friends, as we follow the threads that have been woven into the story so far . . .
As for the part about me, beyond writing? Well, I am a mother of 3 wonderful young men. This fall, I will celebrate 30 years of marriage. I enjoy time with my family, working in my garden, and time spent at my cottage, whether it be doing chores or basking in the sun, although I must confess, mosquitoes are not my friends! I am extra-inspired when I get the chance to do some writing at the cottage; something about the water and the trees—sunny day, rainy day, it makes no difference.
It has been an exciting journey as a debut author—and it’s not over yet!
