Follow Your Star Home is a very special anthology by The Bluestocking Bells.
We were given an interesting brief.
- It had to be a Christmas story
- It had to be about 20,000 words
And it had to feature the following elements
- A ring (which you can see on the cover)
- A sword
- An Arabian horse
- A sailing boat, and
- A prodigal returns story
Our imaginations ran wild and the result is Follow Your Star Home.
So to have a little bit of fun, I’ve asked my follow Belles to show of their fantasy film casting skills and share a little more about their story.
My next guest is Sherry Ewing.
Tell us the name of the story and a little background about the hero and the heroine you’ve created for Follow Your Star Home
My contribution to the Bluestocking Belles’ box set, Follow Your Star Home, is One Last Kiss. Thomas, lately of Berwyck Castle, has been waiting a long time for his story to appear. He was first seen as a secondary character in my debut novel, If My Heart Could See You. Torn from his home at Lennox Castle at a young age when his father loses faith in him, he ends up at Berwyck and attempts to forget about his Scottish heritage. Jade Calloway is your typical modern day woman, or maybe not so typical. Lost in the foster care system, she has only a few people she trusts enough to call friends. Little did she know that a trip to San Francisco, California, along with a ring that magically appears would throw her back into medieval times.
2. If you could cast any actor and actress into the role of your hero and heroine (it could be current stars or Golden Years of Hollywood legends), who would you pick?
That’s a tough one but let’s go with Colin O’Donoghue, who I just loved as Hook in Once Upon a Time, and Scarlett Johansson because she does an outstanding job with the character she plays in the Avenger movies.
3. What does this Season mean for your hero and heroine?
The holiday season for my characters are filled with a sense of awe and bewilderment. They are both attempting to deal with the fact that Jade has been pulled from her time in the future to be with Thomas. They feel the connection between them instantly and know what a miracle they have before them.
Short excerpt from One Last Kiss
“Your name is Thomas,” she stated the obvious and finally took a seat opposite him, but she perched on the edge of her chair, at the ready to take flight if the need arose.
Thomas leaned back, attempting to appear calm when he was anything but composed, especially when he espied his ring upon her finger. “Aye, I am Thomas Kincaid, lately of Berwyck, and you are one of those future women who continues to plague this place.”
“How do you know that?” she questioned, afore reaching for the jug of wine and pouring a cup. She offered him the chalice, and when their hands briefly touched, tingling sensations ran up his arm.
“We have met afore in my dreams. I will assume the same holds true for you since you knew my name as well.”
“Yes… I have dreamed of you, too,” she whispered afore standing to pace the length of the room. “How is this even possible?”
Thomas shrugged, but he watched her every move, expecting her to disappear from view. “One does not tend to question such a gift, or so I have heard from the others who came afore you.”
She cocked her head to one side as though reliving some memory. “A gift or a curse?” she whispered, afore she crossed her arms and placed her hands beneath her underarms as though hugging herself.
“I would prefer to think on it as a gift and certainly nary a curse that you are here with us.”
“I am a long way from home, Thomas,” she murmured, her eyes glistening with unshed tears.
