I’ve recently decided to try my hand at writing part time. Now I’m writing my first official book, Wood. It is about a 15 year old girl living in Michigan next to Lake Erie in a town called Wilson. Wilson is fictional, and a blooming suburban town. The girl is named Cheryl and she lives in a lakeside home. When her rich father teaches her about 17th and 18th century sailing ships, she develops a fondness for them. Her father tells her that people make replicas of wonderful ships; galleons, frigates, sloops, etc. Cheryl, having a special love for sloops, wants to make a replica, the Odyssey. And that’s where it begins.
