Interview with a New Reader

Kaitie Resiter is a new reader, who recently discovered the Gansett Island Series. She flew through all 20 books in a couple of weeks and sent me hilarious messages along the way, such as this one when she finished the last book, “I finished!!! And I feel like I just said see ya soon to my very best friends!!! So so so amazing!!!” I loved Kaitie’s enthusiasm so I asked if she’d be willing to chat further about the series. She agreed and I asked her first how she discovered Gansett Island:

Kaitie: My mom kept telling me to read it because I couldn’t find anything else to read. And I’d been seeing Facebook ads for it too.

So tell me what hooked you on the series!

Kaitie: I immediately fell for Mac and Maddie. And once I started reading I couldn’t put them down. There’s just something about your writing that sucks me right in. Not to mention I adore the McCarthy family and how we got updates and new stories for them as we met new people too

Aw, thanks! I love to hear that. So if Mac and Maddie are your favorites, which couple comes in second for you?

Kaitie: That’s really hard!! But, I really really like Laura and Owen too. It’s a really hard choice but I do adore those two so so much!

I love them, too! So much I wrote two books about them. LOL. Thank you for doing this interview. Last question: what are you planning to read while you wait for more Gansett?

Kaitie: I’m getting caught up on a series really quick, but honestly after finishing Yours After Dark last night I struggled to find anything that was remotely good until I found the series I did. And then, I’m picking up the Treading Water series!!

Thank you so much to Kaitie and her enthusiasm for Gansett Island! Her question for me is WHEN is Trouble After Dark coming, and I said I’m working on it! If you haven't yet read Gansett Island, get the first 18 books in Kindle Unlimited at
