7 Questions with #Author Will North @WillNorthAuthor #Women #Fiction

Tell us a bit about your family.
I am recently married to a very talented and delightful Englishwoman who keeps me on my toes, and I have both a splendid son and grandson.
How do you work through self-doubts and fear?
I can’t afford self-doubt. I just push right through it.
What scares you the most?
Right wing “Tea Party” Republicans, but you probably don’t want to mention that…
What makes you happiest?
A great sentence I’ve just written, a face-lick from my dog, sun on the beach where I live, still having a pulse…
What’s your greatest character strength?
Relentless persistence and perfectionism.
What’s your weakest character trait?
See above.
Why do you write?
I write to pay the mortgage. It’s my job.  It’s also my “work”—that is, the thing I am meant to do.  I have always written for a living and have been writing and publishing books for thirty years, nineteen of them so far. Before I turned to fiction, I ghost-wrote books for people like Bill Clinton, Al Gore, several famous mountaineers, a team of dinosaur hunters, among others.
Every summer for generations, three families intertwined by history, marriage, and career have spent “the season” at their beach cottage compounds on an island in Puget Sound. Today, Martha “Pete” Petersen, married to Tyler Strong, is the lynchpin of the “summer people.” In childhood, she was the tomboy every girl wanted to emulate and is now the mother everyone admires.
Colin Ryan, family friend and the island’s veterinarian, met Pete first in London, years earlier, when she visited his roommate, Tyler. He’s loved her, privately, ever since. Born in Manhattan’s Hell’s Kitchen, son of a bar owner, he’s always been dazzled by what he sees of the sun-kissed lives of the summer people.
But this summer, currents strong as the tides roil: jealousies grow, tempers flare, passions clash. Then, on the last day of the season, a series of betrayals alters the combined histories of these families forever.
As in previous novels, The Long Walk Home and Water, Stone, Heart, with Seasons’ End, Will North weaves vivid settings and memorable characters into a compelling tale of romance and suspense.
