Running through a strange forest with a bloodthirsty demon hot on her heels wasn’t Taylor’s idea of a rockin’ evening. Then again, neither was soaring backward through time and space. Time travel chafed and left a rank, nasty aftertaste. So, when she finds herself floundering amidst a sea of Commandment-loving holy rollers who fling accusations of witchcraft and bedevilment like hotcakes in a diner, finding her way home jumps to the top of her to do list. Too bad she can’t remember who she is or where she came from. And if that wasn’t bad enough, Taylor realizes she’s fallen for Gabriel, the mysterious Latin warlock who came to her rescue.
Battling an identity crisis and lost in a time that’s not her own, Taylor is determined to find her way back to twenty-first century Hanaford Park. But first, she and Gabriel must work together to uncover the dark scourge lurking in the shadows of Salem Village, and in doing so, save their lives, and the lives of countless innocents from a lethal date with the hangman’s noose.
Bear with me, friends while I shout from the rooftops: Woohoo! I’m so excited to finally be able to share Faythe Reclaimed with all of you.
I’ve mentioned a time or two that the title of Taylor and Gabriel’s story is a play on words. Gabriel’s journey to regain both his faith in himself and the love of his life is full of pain and angst. Looking back on the months it took to write the story, I have to say my writing process felt very similar at times! Faythe Reclaimed is very different from the first two books in the Hanaford Park series, as was my writing process during its creation.
On a good writing day, I can usually put down anywhere from one thousand to fifteen hundred words. While writing FR, I was lucky to come away with five hundred. I was extra picky, never satisfied. My vision for Taylor and Gabriel was very clear, and I wouldn’t settle for anything less than what I saw in my head. Some days I’d write my usual fifteen hundred words and delete half of them, others I’d stare at my computer screen in frustration because my characters didn’t want to cooperate.
Writing Taylor and Gabriel’s story, though rewarding on many levels, was a daunting task, and one that made me question myself, and my writing abilities on more than one occasion. Had I bitten off more than I could chew? Was the story too big? Would readers accept the change in point of view? There were so many questions that weighed heavily on my heart.
Through all of the worry and frustration, I stubbornly kept to my original vision for Gabriel and Taylor’s love story, having faith that the story would play out the way it was meant to. In the end, I believe it did, and I’m so excited to be able to share it with all of you.
