Welcome to Templeton Cove…
It’s great to be here today and have the chance to tell your lovely visitors a little bit about my fictional UK seaside town of Templeton Cove.
It has always been a dream of mine to write a series of books set in the same small town…due to my obsession with many Nora Roberts series, Jill Shalvis’ Lucky Harbor series and Robyn Carr’s Virgin River series. All of these books influenced my love of small town romances and the dream of creating a huge cast of characters.
The debut book in the Templeton Cove series is Finding Justice. When my agent submitted this book to Harlequin, I was already writing book two, A Man Like Him, with the hope both books would be the start of a series. These books were soon contracted…you can imagine my hysteria when Harlequin offered me a contract for a further three (What Belongs To Her & Christmas At The Cove and Her Hometown Redemption) and then, a year later, another three (Saved By The Firefighter, Ethan’s Daughter (out Aug 2017) and an eight book which I am busy writing as we speak!
All the books can be read stand-alone and are a mix of mainstream romance and romantic suspense stories. I have some main recurring characters that pop up in, if not all, then certainly some of the books. The most popular of these characters for both my readers and I is the town’s matriarch, Marian Cohen. She’s feisty, fun and has a heart big enough to hold the whole world – she’s the oracle, the person all the young hero and heroines and secondary characters go to when they need help, comfort or advice. She is a joy to write every time!
The more Templeton Cove books I release, the more people seem to enjoy them. I love the Cove and its residents so much, I’m not entirely sure when I will ever consider the series finished but, for now, I’m just enjoying the ride J
If you like small-town romance, with a cast of quirky, fun and sentimental characters with lots of laughter, tears, suspense and adventure, I’d love you to give Templeton Cove a try!
