Last summer, the Summerside author decided it would be fun to set an entire story at her own much-loved campground.
Coming off a volunteer stint at the 2016 Cavendish Beach Music Festival, Rodgers thought, “Wouldn’t it be fun if a famous country singer hid out at Twin Shores for the summer?”
Twin Shores will never be the same — although in the books, the campground goes by the fictional name Castle Beach, and famous singer Dallas White is snuggled into a site overlooking the beach.
His love interest, single mom Cassie Keough, is living on the bay side in a luxurious fifth wheel.
“Our fifth wheel is the oldest and smallest of the seasonals, so I decided to live vicariously through Cassie,” says Rodgers about her characters.
“She’s got the luxury trailer I’d like to have. Dallas, on the other hand, is living in a tent, so it’s all good, as they say. It balances out.”
Rodgers also just released three new books in the Drifters series: “The Light In Me,” “When The West Wind Moves” and “Listen To The River.” All are available as e-books and some are also available in print at Island bookstores.
The newest releases are available in print via Rodgers (email email@example.com or text 902-439-8362). Rodgers also has a table at the Summerside Farmers’ Market each Saturday, and print books can also be purchased through Amazon and Indigo and via www.susanrodgersauthor.com.
