Thorpe pens sec­ond ro­mance novel

Penticton Herald - - COMMUNITY -

Pen­tic­ton au­thor Yas­min John-Thorpe has penned her long-awaited sec­ond ro­mance, novel “Al­ways,” which the au­thor will be on hand to au­to­graph at Coles Book Store in the Cher­ryLane Shop­ping Cen­tre on Satur­day from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Af­ter pen­ning mul­ti­ple books for chil­dren, JohnThorpe’s first ro­mance, “For­ever,” was launched at the Pen­tic­ton Her­ald of­fices in 2012. The au­thor be­lieved it would be her one and only ro­mance.

How­ever re­quests for a fol­lowup ro­mance, fea­tur­ing one or more of the char­ac­ters in the first ro­mance, caught John-Thorpe by sur­prise. Re­search­ing the sto­ry­line for “Al­ways” has taken time but it has given the au­thor an in­sight into the Pa­cific Coastal Pi­lots of Bri­tish Columbia, as well as knowl­edge of sea-go­ing yachts. “Al­ways” fea­tures one of the char­ac­ters from “For­ever,” who will get her own love story in a third book, “Be­witched,” which John-Thorpe has de­vel­oped and is al­ready busy writ­ing.
