Mary Metcalfeabout this book: Change is part of life. How we navigate the changes in our lives determines the kind of life we lead. In Winds of Change, I explore the lives of four people. Jennifer Barrett and Lana Fitzpatrick were both widowed decades too early. Ben and Mark Powell are a father and son who haven't seen each other in over four years. As they each meet the others, new bonds are formed as the power of friendship and love transforms their lives.
I was inspired to write this novel after watching my daughter work on a literary nonfiction book. I saw all the hard work she put into researching and writing it, finding a publisher and then launching and promoting her book and realized I wanted to do the same thing. I've now written three full length novels in the past year and a half! Each one involved extensive research into the locales for each novel, including research on social and medical issues explored in the books. It's a ton of work but everyone who has read the novels has been touched in some way at a very personal level. And all are waiting for number four!
The books have now become part of my Look to the Future series. Books two and three are set in or near the fictional town of Laskin, Massachusetts. All my books include animals. I have three cats and a large dog and I just can't imagine life without my critters around.
