We often read about workplace sexual harassment involving men harassing women, but I thought it would be interesting to explore it from the point of view of a man who is falsely accused, and it’s actually the woman doing the harassing. It was an interesting and eye-opening topic to explore!
I’m always tempted to write silver linings! I’m a Pollyanna who really hates putting her characters in peril, hates seeing them suffer. But there’s no tension and no story if happy endings happen too soon!
LOL! Thank you for remembering. Yes, Audrey, but I could also really relate to Corinne in this book. Especially her feelings of inferiority and envy where her sisters are concerned. I adore my own sisters, but often struggle with feeling that they are cuter, skinnier, more talented, etc. And they are both younger! So it was fun to explore those feelings in Corinne as well.
It’s probably just the way I was raised. I can remember my mom often saying some form of, “Just think how you’d feel if you were in their shoes!” It was her way of teaching us to be compassionate, and it serves me well in life—when I remember to apply it!
I think people need to know which direction they lean—too trusting, or too suspicious—before I could advise them. Bottom line, I would encourage them to be aware, be in prayer, and involve a trusted friend or counselor if in doubt.
I just hope my readers continue to enjoy getting to know the Whitman family. I’ve tried very hard to make them real, yet good examples despite their human flaws. Most of all, I hope readers see that the reason for any success my characters enjoy is simply Jesus!
Ha! My favorite is always the one I’m currently working on. But I have a feeling when the series is done and I can be a little more objective about each story, it will be the third book, Another Way Home, that I have a soft spot for in my heart.
I have a Pinterest board with photos of my setting, characters (not all of them yet…showing the characters before all the books are out would give too many spoilers!), and my book covers. I’d love for readers to take a look!
