The Olympic Peninsula series, which begins in 1995 and ends in 2000, follows the fortunes of former foster children and twins Ali and Liam Ryan and the wealthy and powerful O’Connell family of Seattle, headed by matriarch Carrie. Each book features one of the O'Connell siblings: Joe, Teresa, David, Jake, and Edward. Their stories are set largely in Washington State: Seattle, North Bend, the Hoh Rain Forest, Tokeland, Port Townsend, Port Angeles, Sol Duc Hot Springs, and Lake Quinault. When the series begins, Joe is a country music star, Teresa a socialite longing to get out from beneath her mother's thumb, David a surgeon working with a charity organization in Africa, Jake the CEO of the family business, Big Paul's Outfitters, and Edward, a Catholic priest in Philadelphia. Each book works as a stand-alone and will be available in eBook, 6x9 trade paperback, and audiobook formats.
