Writing the Ladies of Legend Series

ReturntoLegendBoxedSet 200-300What do you like about writing the Ladies of Legend series?

First and foremost, I’ve loved the connection with my fellow writers: Magdalena, Maddie and Janet. Creating a series with three other different writers has been a fun challenge.

Writing my part of The Ladies of Legend series is the first time I’ve created a sequence of stories with the same characters. I now understand why readers become involved in a series because it gives them a chance to delve deeper into the lives of characters they come to love.

Who is your favorite Legend character?

I love Jane, because as a kid I often felt like a “plain Jane.” I never changed places with another person to attract a guy’s attention, but back in the day, I wore my shortest mini skirts with that purpose in mind. I love Dawn because she discovers that love and family are what’s important in life and acts on her new understanding.

Going back to 1968 and 1969 to explore the history of Jane and Dawn’s family was fun. I lived those years as a teenager, but after refreshing my memory with a bit of Internet research, I realized how turbulent those times were in the United States. Looking at the bigger picture, I recognized that every decade of my life has had its own challenges. We aren’t given an easy path in life, and like my characters, we must act to the best of our abilities to change and grow so we become the human beings we are meant to be.

What is the appeal of Legend, Tennessee, and small town life?

Readers seem to love the Ladies of Legend stories. I’ll let some of the reviews on Amazon tell you why.

  • “This boxed set was great, wonderful writers and I can’t wait for the next book from all of you.”
  • “Good characters and story line.”
  • “Such a delightful series, I’m sorry I came to the end of this set.”

I think modern life is complicated and small town life appeals to people who long for simpler times.

Heart to Heart

When Jeremy’s aunt gives him a second chance, he must decide if he believes in the unbelievable and the pet psychic who teaches him about faith…and love.

Jeremy Hamilton’s company is cash-strapped and his personal life is a mess. Inheriting the bulk of Ms. Addie Bynum’s wealth is a godsend, but moving to the small town of Legend, Tennessee, to get that money is a big pain. Ms. Addie has given Jeremy a second chance under certain conditions. Will he take that chance?

Marty Fields is a pet psychic. She’s spent a lifetime explaining animal communication to skeptic citizens of her small town. Only Ms. Addie understands her gift. Keeping Ms. Addie’s six cats after the old lady’s death is the least Marty can do. Yet, she’s put her life on hold. Will the grandnephew’s arrival upset the rhythm of her comfortable existence?

Jan Scarbrough is the author of the popular Bluegrass Reunion series, writing heartwarming contemporary romances about family and second chances, and if the plot allows—horses. Living in the horse country of Kentucky makes it easy for Jan to add small town, Southern charm to her books, and the excitement of a horse race or a competitive horse show. A member of Novelist, Inc., Jan has published with Kensington, Five Star, ImaJinn Books, Resplendence Publishing and Turquoise Morning Press.
