I had a bit of an epiphany last night while jamming with my ukulele band-all of the characters I have created for my current and future books have some sort of musical talent. Jack and Caroline of ‘Solomon’s Choice’ are good dancers, Jimmy and Holly in ‘Daughter of Valor’ (March 2015) both sing, Russ and Angie of ‘The Soap Maker’ (upcoming 2015) are trained ballroom dancers, and in the books floating around in my head right now I envision members of a mariachi band, Appalachian folk musicians, performers in a bluegrass band, and a Hawaiian with a ukulele. Music is an integral part of my life and I guess it stands to reason that my characters would be musicians also.
