About The Wandering Star Series
One of my favorite memories growing up was of sitting at my Nana’s knee and watching movies. She had a treasure trove of them, all different genres, some old, some new. But the shows I enjoyed the most were the musicals.
A movie we saw over and over again was Paint Your Wagon with Clint Eastwood, Lee Marvin and Jean Seberg. In it, Lee Marvin sings the most wonderful song, “Wan’drin Star”.
The lyrics share his belief that the best way to enjoy your life is to never stay in one place too long. And when it is time to go, he’s always heading away from home, rarely traveling to it. As a sixteen year old who’d never been out of California, after watching that, I thought that since I loved traveling, I, too, must have been born under a wandering star.
Many years later, when Jonathon and I started roaming the world, I remembered this song and my teenage conviction. Wan’drin Star” quickly became the theme for what we wanted to do with our lives since as long as we were together, no matter where we wandered, we were already home.
When I decided to write about each of the places we’d visited in our wanderings, I knew immediately I should name my new series after this amazing song.
So go on a dune buggy ride with me in sultry, tropical Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. Put on your hiking boots to explore the beautiful high mountains and shadowy gorges of Aareschlucht, Switzerland. Travel by riverboat to discover the verdant jungles and sapphire waterways near Manaus, Brazil. And finally, jet off to cosmopolitan yet mysterious Paris, France, to unearth secrets at the most famous City of the Dead, Père Lachaise Cemetery.
Each of these, as well as the rest of the Wandering Star books, are set in an area of the world I’ve been fortunate enough to spend time in. And knowing how blessed I am to have experienced all those cultures and met so many wonderful people, I wanted to share those memories with my readers. So, I’ve taken my adventures, added a little imagination magic and penned a collection of sensual romance stories that will appeal to the armchair traveler in all of us. I hope you’ll enjoy the books as much as I enjoyed doing the research for them.
As always, thanks for your support, and remember, not all who
wander are lost because…
