I’m so excited to be a part of Wheeler’s Design Fun Week!
Rachel Skatvold poses a very thought-provoking question. I’m interested in your answer too.
In Wheeler’s Design Sabrina Wheeler starts her own mobile pottery studio, inspired by a high school art teacher who encouraged her to follow her dreams. Do you have a mentor who has been an encouragement to you?
What a great question. I have three teachers who inspired me to be curious through many areas of my life. The first is Mr. Lawrence, my fifth-grade teacher in England. Living in England would have been enough to spark my growth, but he opened my eyes to French and history. Thanks to him, I have a love of languages and research.
Mrs. Underwood, my ninth grade Journalism teacher, continued encouraging me to research and write. Though it was journalism, I made an easy jump to literature and essays. She challenged me to ask the questions. I ended up majoring in Journalism because of her inspiration, time, and talent.
Coach Barmore pushed me over the edge, never to return to my former self. Ha! He taught World History. For the first time, someone hit on all my interests when he suggested an excellent foray into historical fiction with The Source by James A. Michener. Reading, research, and writing! My love for history began in England and continues to this day.
Do you have a mentor or two or three?
I have loved every book in this new Suamalie Islands series. Here’s a bit about Wheeler’s Design.
Clay is messy and so is Sabrina’s life sometimes, but will God mold it into a work of art?
Sabrina Wheeler, single mom and business owner, won a scholarship to expand her pottery studio on Luamua Island. Now, she can finally have the career and life she’s been praying for. The scholarship includes a mentor, and Sabrina is anxious to make a good impression.
For Chad Berkley, an impromptu business trip to the Suamalie Islands couldn’t have happened at a worse time. Aside from it triggering his OCD personality, he also has important obligations in Yorkshire, and being absent for a month was not in his plans. The new assignment is an honor, however, and a huge step up in his career. He can’t risk disappointing his boss now.
But then he sees Sabrina. After their brief meeting at the business conference, he hasn’t stopped thinking of her. How had he missed that she is the business owner he’s been sent to mentor? Talk about distractions on his first big assignment. Will he be able to push his personal feelings aside and keep his focus on business?
Take a trip to the Suamalie Islands where palm trees sway, the sand and sea pulse with life, and the people will steal your heart.
