A Day in the Life of Lisa Belcastro
My day begins at dawn. I am a morning person, without the assistance of coffee or an alarm. During the school year, I’m at my desk reading emails and posting on social media before the school day starts. Once breakfast is done and lunches are made, I print out the previous day’s writing and pack my gym bag. Fortunately for me, school is directly across the street from our “Y”, so I drop off and hit the gym. While I’m running on the treadmill (in the colder months), I edit what I wrote the day before.
After some weight lifting and ab exercises, it’s home to shower and back into my office. In the colder months, I’ll work through the day, breaking for school pick up and various mommy taxi services. In the summer months, I normally steal two or three hours during the day to garden, go to the beach, meet up with friends, or simply sit outside and enjoy the glorious weather.
I don’t mind working later hours in the summer if it means afternoons at the beach. My “work” hours are divided between novel writing, magazine or blog articles, and social media. I had no idea how much time social media would require, but I do love connecting with readers and fellow authors, and social media makes those connections a breeze.
By the end of the day, I’m ready to cook, a passion I enjoy year round but more so in the summer and fall when my gardens are overflowing with fresh, organic vegetables. Living on an Island, I’m known to cook dinner, pack everything into a cooler, and bring my family to the beach to watch the sunset while we eat. It’s a blessed life.
Could this all be a bad dream? How was she to know? Rebecca had far more questions than answers. Tisbury, Massachusetts, Martha's Vineyard The last thing sixth-grade teacher Rebecca O'Neill wants to do during the final week of her summer break is chaperone twenty-five kids on a six-night, seven-day trip aboard the schooner Shenandoah. But after a desperate phone call from the school principal, she doesn't have a choice. Worse, the ship is rumored to be 'haunted.'
Five years ago, during the Holmes Hole student cruise, teacher Melissa Smith complained about hearing voices and seeing visions, then disappeared without a trace-from the very same cabin where Rebecca will be staying.

Her first night onboard, Rebecca drifts off to sleep...and wakes the following morning with memories of a secretive conversation about a battle with Britain. Monday night Rebecca crawls into her bunk after an adventurous day of sailing, swimming, and overseeing students. She's startled awake when a man grabs her and yells, 'Stowaway!'
Dragged in front of Captain Benjamin Reed, she looks up into the most gorgeous brown eyes she's ever seen.... A Vineyard Romance. Romance, history, adventure. Get swept into the exciting Winds of Change series. Book 1, Winds of Change.
