Neighbourhood Cast List

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

The Malloys:

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’.

Pre-sales of Volume 2 – NEIGHBOURHOOD WATCH – BO are on now! 

NEIGHBOURHOOD TANGLE – JED

This short volume – the first in a seven part series that follows the Malloy family, whom we met in NEIGHBOURS Series 1, is set to release on April 15.

Keeping Up With the Neighbours: 

Volume 1 – Neighbourhood Tangle – JED

Look out! The Malloy family are taking over the neighbourhood! Jed – a ‘down-home’ boy from Newfoundland who’s a bit rough around the edges – moved ‘out west’ several years ago, but now his raucous family are joining him, one by one. A confirmed bachelor, Jed finds himself attracted to a hairdresser who he mistakes for her identical twin sister. Just when Jed thinks he’s ready for love, he finds out that their moral standards don’t align. In anguish he turns to alcohol – the one true friend that has never let him down.

 

 

 

Note to readers: This series, although labelled ‘Christian’, contains elements that may be disturbing to some readers, such as the use of alcohol and pre-marital sexual encounters. (The latter take place ‘off camera’.) There is, however, a faith based element throughout with a strong redemptive message at the end of the series.
