A few readers said they had some trouble keeping such a large cast of characters straight while reading the original NEIGHBOURS Series. To help alleviate that issue, I have added a ‘cast list’ to the second series at the back of each volume. I want to thank Violet, one of my beta readers, for making this suggestion. Here is what it looks like:
Cast List From the Neighbourhood
Jed Malloy: 32 – back woods boy from Newfoundland is the head of the ‘clan’.
Zeb Malloy: 30 – rough around the edges; likes to party, and likes his ‘freedom’.
Bo Malloy: 27 – quiet and more sensible than the rest. Works at the Urban Cowboy.
Will Malloy: 26 – into sports, the outdoors, and anything fun!
Reba Malloy: 24 – fiery redhead with a stubborn streak.
Pip (Steve) Malloy: 22 – the ‘baby’ of the family and a bit of a ‘ladies’ man’.
Andrea Carravagio: identical twin to Angela. Owns Gemini’s Beauty Salon.
