About the author:
J.C. is a Colorado native but has been fortunate enough to have lived in both North Carolina as well as southwest Germany.
An avid reader, J.C. enjoys all different genres including YA, mystery/thriller, fiction and some horror. Her favorite, however, is southern literature. Her most beloved book of all time is Harper Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird, and while she is a loyal follower of many different authors, James Lee Burke sits at the top of her list.
J.C. fills most of her time homeschooling her two children (who are also avid readers) and jotting down the countless ideas for story lines that fill her head. Her first novel, The Color of Thunder, was published in December of 2012. Her second novel, and the first in The Gannon Family series, Alabama Skye was published in June, 2014. The second book, A Skye Full of Stars will be released in August of 2015. The third and final book of the series, Under a Southern Skye will follow soon after.
Among the many projects that keep J.C. busy is another trilogy called The Goddess of Tornado Alley. This is a humorous story which features the Greek goddess Aphrodite and one of her unlucky in love mortal descendants. J.C. is also tackling a historical fiction novel, this one of a more serious nature, titled Red Beard and the Ravens. This tale will be based on the lives of the German emperor Frederick Barbarossa and his family.
A Skye Full of Stars
J. C. Wing
Life is good in the small, coastal town of Kelby, Alabama. The days are busy and satisfying, if not a touch predictable, but change is in the air. Spring is coming, and it's bringing with it more than tourist season.
When Cheney receives word that a package with her name on it has been found by a family friend near Glasgow, she decides to take Meara back to Scotland with her to retrieve it. Together, the sisters discover surprising evidence of an unknown life led by their father long before either one of them was born.
Noah's happy life is shaken when her father falls ill, and the mother who abandoned her ten years before reappears with news that makes Noah question everything she thought she knew. Things are further set off kilter when Noah's childhood crush, Keene, drives into town with all of his belongings packed into his truck...everything, that is, except his wife.
A Skye Full of Stars takes readers from war torn Scotland, where the Gannon family tree first took root, to the modern day southern shores of Alabama's gulf coast. It's a story about how blood isn't always what it takes to build a family.
