Well, it's true that our physical home is here in Northern Virginia...at least for now. But my heart-home is Kingsport and this is why: my entire family is there.
I thought I'd use this last entry on Kingsport to share some visual insight into what I love most about Kingsport.
My mom and stepfather:
My dad, stepmom, sisters, their husbands, and my nieces and nephews:
My Aunt Billye and Uncle Jim (now famous due to his voiceover on the book trailer--ha!)
Finally, the memory of my wonderful, wonderful grandmother, Carol (pictured here with my husband), who passed away two years ago (and my grandfather who passed away in 2002):
In my opinion, family makes up the most important components of home.
This will be the last of the Kingsport series, as tomorrow is official book launch day, so I'll be moving the blog in a different direction. Thanks for allowing me to explore the setting of my novel so thoroughly and with such fondness!
Now for the question of the day, where is home for you?
