Hi Abigail,
Thanks for your question. I'm delighted that you've fallen in love with Prince Edward Island. I did too, and I love sharing this amazing province with readers.

My characters are entirely original. I don't write people I know into my books. I'd hate for someone to recognize herself and be offended. :) But I do use quirks and traits and personal stories to add to my characters. In one of my romantic suspense books I wrote a pregnant character who shook her cup of ice to indicate that she wanted more water, which is something that my sister did with her first pregnancy. When she read that, she called me and laughed about it. It was clear the character wasn't her, but that human interaction made the character more alive, and I loved remembering that summer I spent with my sister.

I will say that of all my characters, Caden is most like me. I see so many of my own insecurities and hangups in her, which made writing her both a wonderful challenge and really rewarding. And I love that my mom and sister both have said how much they love her. It's like hearing that they love me. :)

Thanks for reading!(less)

“Loving someone is kind of like offering forgiveness. There's no guarantee that they're not going to hurt you again. You can't promise perfection. But you choose to love and you choose to forgive, because living in fear of being hurt again is just a facsimile of life.”
Liz Johnson, On Love's Gentle Shore

“Forgiveness isn't reserved for the ones who deserve it. God gives it freely, and we should do the same. The one person you can set free from bitterness is you. The fact that your dad apologized is amazing. But even if he hadn't, at some point you're going to have to let go of your anger or you'll end up just like him, hurting the people you're supposed to love.”
Liz Johnson, On Love's Gentle Shore

“wonderful promise from the book of Matthew, chapter seven, verse eleven. ‘If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him!’ God isn’t a vending machine to ask for the things that we want. Rather, he gives us what is best. He works the things of this world for the good of those who love him. He’s the fountain of every blessing, the loving Father who longs to give us sweet gifts.”
Liz Johnson, The Red Door Inn
