A Second Time Round

Rosemary K. Tompkins
Rosemary K. Tompkins Author Interview

The Classy Squad follows a widower who hires a helper which unwittingly sets off a lustful neighbor who begins to worm her way into his life. What was the inspiration for the setup to your story?

I became inspired to write the dolls into the script after my husband who knows how much I love dolls came home with a picture of a clients dolls collection and on having a bit of writer block at the time decided to include the dolls in a novel I was writing, I’m hoping my readers will recognize my sense of humor.

What were some themes that were important for you to explore in this book?

I wanted to convey to people over 60 who lose their husbands or wives to never give up on life or loving a second time round. And that the widow/widow did not have to suffer just because his or her wife or husband has passed on.

What is the next book that you are working on and when will it be available?

At the moment I’m working on a novel called Secrets of Coventry cottage. This is a young Adult Book. I’ve nearly completed it.

It is time to move on. You will never forget her, but you must live your life.

Floyd has been hearing this a lot lately after losing his wife Betty a few years back. So much around their house reminds him of her – from the furniture to the garden, to the beautiful dolls room she created where dolls and other toys lounge around in wait, for another adventure.

Realizing he needs help around the house, Floyd puts an advert out and hires the lovely Mabel. This sends Irene, a neighbour of Floyd’s, into a tizzy, as she has had her eye on Floyd for a while.

With Irene scheming to worm her way deeper into Floyd’s life by any means imaginable, she will soon come to realize that Floyd has protectors that no one knows about. Betty managed to bring the dolls and toys to life many years ago, and together with Jane and Jack, Mabel’s great-niece and -nephew, they work together to defeat the villainous Irene.

With love on the line, can they defeat the house sitter’s nemesis?
