Remembering the Wonderful People

Denise Ann Stock Author Interview

The Eyes of Summer follows a young woman on a summer trip that turns deadly when her curiosity lands her in the middle of a crime ring. How did the idea for this story start and change as you wrote?

I love to read detective novels. The idea was a second Adventure with the characters from my first book Blow Out Summer. The first draft was too ordinary. I wanted something with shock value as well as mystery. As I began to rewrite it Catalina Island was mentioned. I love the island and I decided to incorporate it into the story.

The story takes place around Catalina Island and it felt very authentic. What is your experience with the island?

I have visited Catalina many many times. My husbands family had a mooring in Cat Harbor. We spent weekends enjoying the beautiful Island.

Are there any pieces of your characters that are based on real people?

Yes, remembering the wonderful people I met there in the past helped create other boaters for the setting, they weren’t criminals.

Do you have other stories planned for Dee?

Book 3 was released in February of this year.

The Eyes of Summer is a fun-filled tale of adventure, mystery, and danger aboard a luxury yacht.

Ian Conner, a medical student interning at the University of California, Irvine, and his surfer girlfriend Dee live in Huntington Beach. The two are spending their summer on a 70-foot yacht moored at Catalina Island.

Naturally curious, Dee is a journalist for a local newspaper, leading the couple to soon suspect that some illegal activity is going on at another yacht. The situation turns sinister when they discover what they believe to be drugs and money laundering taking place.

In the blink of an eye, the couple’s summer jaunt turns from pleasurable to deadly.
