From horses to dogs, there was Thunder


Willow’s protective Irish Wolfhound

Thunder in Willow's Secret Mimi FosterAfter I started writing Willow’s Secret, I stopped for a while to tell the story of her parents (Jordan’s Gift), because I thought it was an important part of Willow’s tale. In Jordan’s Gift, we find out where the name Thunder came from, and why Jordan and Edward named their daughter Willow.

In keeping with the tradition, when Willow received an Irish Wolfhound when she was a girl, she named him Thunder. He is admirably protective, except he has the same weakness as our heroine . . . he’s pretty devoted to our hero, Charles. Thunder and Willow grow up together through good times and bad in this poignant adventure you won’t want to miss.

This is what I imagined the very-loveable Thunder to look like.

Willow’s Secret Mimi Foster

Willow's Secret Mimi FosterFrom the time I first wrote about the journals in Thunder Struck, I have been enamored with the story of Willow. When I finished Thunder Storm, I decided to pursue the historical romance of Willow and Charles. Somewhere along the way, I interrupted Willow’s story and wrote about her parents, Jordan and Edward (Jordan’s Gift), and I believe it adds a richness to Willow.

I’m quite pleased to present my newest novel, Willow’s Secret, set around 1910 when the world was changing rapidly. People were beginning to drive automobiles, indoor plumbing and electricity were becoming more common, and the Wright Brothers were experimenting with flight. This is a delightfully romantic escape. Come and enjoy!

Historical Romance or Contemporary Romance?

Mimi Foster Willow's SecretWhen I first started writing, I was excited to be part of the Contemporary Romance genre. After THUNDER STRUCK was published, I was totally enamoured with the character of Willow that Jordan and Brandan discovered from the journals they found during their remodel of the Victorian home Jordan inherited. After writing another Contemporary Romance novel (THUNDER STORM), I still wanted to tell the story of Willow, so I built her novel from the framework of what we’d learned from her descendants.

But then I found I couldn’t really chronicle her life without telling the story of her parents, Edward and Jordan Stratton. Rather than do an entire novel on them, I wrote a quick and tender novella entitled JORDAN’S GIFT, which takes place in the early 1890s, much of which sets the stage to tell Willow’s tale.

I am close to being done with WILLOW’S SECRET, which will be in the time period between 1910 and 1915. What I’ve discovered in this historical journey is that it’s fun to see people learn about things we take for granted – cars, electricity, indoor plumbing, telephones. So I’ve had a good time with it. Can’t wait to introduce you to Willow and Charles. COMING SOON . . .
