A couple of years ago, a character walked into my life and captured my imagination, and now I’d like to share her story with you.
Sunshine Walkingstick is a no nonsense young woman on the downside of a tragic life. Her son Henry died a few years ago at the age of six, prompting Sunny to begin cleaning house on the monsters in her local area. She’s taken down more than a few in her time using her daddy’s hunting knife, one of the few mementos she has of him.
Sunny’s charm lies in her blunt appraisal of the world around her, and that forthright honesty extends to herself as well. In her mind, she’s a “no account half-breed,” the daughter of a man who ran off to be with another man and the woman who killed them both in cold blood. Henry was her saving grace, and when Sunny lost him, she blamed herself.
But that’s a story for another time.
In a couple of days, you’ll have a chance to begin reading Sunny’s story as it’s told in Greenwood Cove, the first book in a new Urban Fantasy series set in rural Appalachia and narrated by Sunny in her native dialect. Check back soon for more details. In the meantime, welcome to Sunny’s world.
