Meet the Author
Faye Bradley lives in South Carolina with her husband Wilson, and their Yorkie. Born and raised in Wilmington Delaware as a Quaker (Religious Society of Friends), she is the mother of four Eagle Scout sons. Familiar with raising boys, she was very active with the Boy Scouts of America, receiving the distinguished Silver Beaver Award in 1978. She taught swimming and life saving for over thirty years for the American Red Cross, and enjoyed swimming, scuba diving, snow skiing. Faye loves life � and also loves to read.
This is her first attempt at writing a novel and we think you will be pleased. Trying to capture the exciting era of the birth of Big Bands and Swing Dancing (right after the Stock Market Crash and repeal of Prohibition), this story reads like a fun history lesson. You will find yourself in the shoes of Frank and Gene and Jane and Lovina as they live life in 1930's New York City and on the barrier island off the coast of Georgia, from which the book gets its title. It is based upon the real-life story of one of Faye's mother's best friends, and allows the fictional elements to hold it together in a way that lets the reader live, laugh and love as they enjoy a step back in time.
As an author who is a Christian, she dedicated this to you, if you are nine or ninety-nine. This book will hopefully bring the era to life.
Most of Faye's time now is invested in enjoying her service in the United Methodist Women's organization, spending time with family, friends, or her favorite little constant companion, 'Lil Sugar' - a Yorkie with an ever-optimistic personality.
