I never forgot the real Jamie and I wondered what it would be like to have a child live with a woman who’d never been around young children.
What if there was a boy who lived across the street and the woman, thirty-eight-year Rachel, didn’t like him or his big shaggy dog.
Of course the boy sensed her dislike and he returned the feeling.
What if, due to unforeseen circumstances, the woman and the boy had to live together? And what if she became his guardian?
What would their lives be like? What problems would they have? What about the dog?
What would Rachel and Jamie learn about each other—and more importantly about themselves?
These are the questions I had when I started writing Jamie’s Choice. And just in case you’re wondering, there is a handsome man in the story. He’s the lawyer who arranges for Rachel to become the legal guardian. Enough said about him.
Jamie’s Choice was going to be the only book about this boy, until I finished writing it and discovered I didn’t know why a character in the book behaved in a very aloof manner.
What was this man’s problem? How did his problem affect Jamie? HINT- major revelation.
Voila! I had the question and lots of ideas for Jamie’s Secret, the second book in the Bringing Jamie Home Trilogy.
