Happy Birthday


 
Thank you for Stopping by my Blog site on the


For those who don't know me let me introduce myself. As you already gathered my name is Dominique Eastwick. I am a Wife, Mother of Two boys and a person who isn't living if she isn't creating something. Which means my life is crazy and I am a bit scatterbrained.

I am in the middle of working on the Third Book in the Sherman Family Series.

The First Book Hunting JC and the Second book Tony's Haven
are currently available at Aspen Mountain Press

The Sherman Family series stories take place in and around Boston, but move to some of my favorite places in New England. Real Places that while I lived there I loved and frequented. Though some of the names might be changed the places exist and to anyone who knows the area they will know the places. Want to take a Sherman Tour of Boston. Come back over the next few weeks and I will take you on a photographic journey with the Shermans,

But first who the Heck are the Shermans?

The Shermans are a well to do New England Family who prove that money can't buy you happiness but love can conquer all. They are steadfast in their love of each other and their pursuits of the ones they love.  They are also Parrotheads through and through and only their love for the Red Sox might trump their love of Jimmy Buffett.



Boston


Meet The Shermans.


Jacinda Sherman: (Hunting JC) Feisty JC is the heroine of Hunting J.C. She has wanted Hunter for years and nothing is going to stop her now. She is the youngest of the Sherman clan.

Hunter Brooks: (Hunting JC) Hunter is the Hero of Hunting JC. Best friends with Tony Sherman. He came from nothing to get everything, now he just has to hold on to it.


Anthony Sherman: (Tony's Haven) Tony is older brother to J.C. and Hunters best friend. They met in college playing on the school Rugby team together and later became roommates. Too handsome for his own good, Tony has developed a reputation as a jokester and ladies man. Under Tony's carefree playboy appearance lies a complex and strong individual. It would take a strong heroine to plow beneath that armor.
Haven Pelletier (Tony's Haven) Haven is a strong Rubensesce woman who isn't bowled over by Tony's Handsome face and charms. She sees the man underneath flaws and all. (oh did I forget to mention she is a die hard Yankee's fan)

Spencer Sherman: (Spencer's Chance In process) Oldest of the Sherman siblings, Spencer is kind and strong. He believes in protecting his family at all cost but has yet to find the woman of his dreams. Spencer has taken the spot left vacant by is father in the family business.
Lucas Sherman: (Killing Lucas in process) Luc is the most bitter Sherman, his broken engagement has left him a pessimist and angry at the world. He is the second oldest Sherman and works in product developement for the family business.

Trenton Sherman: (Yet untitled Book) Is the youngest of the Sherman brothers. He is free loving and optimistic. He finds joy in everything he does. He is the most down to earth Sherman. Trenton owns his one search and rescue firm, he is an avide environmentalist.

Joseph Sherman: Patriarch of the Sherman Clan. Chose to be go into the medical field instead of taking the Seat on the Board meant for him at the Family Business.

Michelle Sherman: Matriarch of the Sherman Clan. A strong loving woman, who doesn't always see thru the facades her children put up for the world.

Kiloran O’Conner (Killing Lucas) Making her third appearance in the Sherman Family series as the heroine of Killing Lucas, the villain from the last two books who has made Lucas' life miserable, finally gets to tell her side of the story, check back to see if everything isn't always the way it seems.

 For more information on the Sherman Family Series go to my website and check out the Reviews and excerpts.

TREASURE QUEST: DISCOVERY LIES BETWEEN THE COVERS:MEGA AUTHOR BLOG HOP TOUR---OBX...My Treasure

Welcome to Dominiques Treasure Quest Blog Stop



Okay so I have to admit to being really really busy but I really really love doing this blog hop tour so when the decision was to make it about treasures my brain went to Pirates, then from Pirated to the Beach and then to may favorite beach which also happens to be refered to as the Graveyard of the Atlantic.

The Outer Banks of North Carolina




This is my Treasure place if X marks the spot then Obx is my spot, and Nags Head is the exact place.  Why?  Because for me it has it all, Great beaches with great surf, (not BIG SURF but fun surf), things to do and Wind. I love wind, I love flying kites and feeling the wind whip through my hair. There is a reason the Wright Brothers Choose Kitty Hawk and OBX to fly the wind never stops.


So every summer for a few days or if we are lucky a full week, my husband and I gather up our stuff sometimes our kids and meet awesome friends and have the best time of our lives.

Welcome to the Blog

Lookie there I finally broke down and did the blogger thing. I held out long enough and decided it was well past time for me to get my butt and my writing on to a blog. So here it is, boring as hell at the moment but I do hope to make it better in the coming weeks.

Or when ever I figure it all out.

Happy Writing
Dominique
