I live in Fairplain ,MI. now but I used to live in a little town near South Haven,named Lakota. It had a two room school that went up to eighth grade . Once you graduated from eighth grade you had to take the bus to South Haven to finish your public school education. As a result I am very familiar with the South Haven area.
I know Lacota very well! As newlyeds, my ex-husband and I spent a lot of our free time with friends in Lacota. Blueberry farmers, of course.
I hope you recognize a little something of South Haven in my books. My newest project (due in March) even has a character reminiscing about the old white lighthouse on the North Pier!
Thanks for commenting. Always nice to hear from a fellow Michigander. 🙂

Thank YOU for your beautiful words! I am happy to know that and please keep visiting my blog! I really enjoy yours, your experiences in Book writing are wonderful lessons for me as well! Thank you!
I just saw your announcement of the preorder availability for “Their Love Rekindled.” I just had to tell you that I grew up in Beach Haven–however, my Beach Haven is in New Jersey and is on an island (Long Beach Island) at the Jersey Shore.
Really? I didn’t realize it was a real town, although I guess I should have done my research! 🙂 My Beach Haven is based on the town of South Haven, Michigan, with a little bit of Bloomingdale thrown in for good measure. Two of my favorite places in the world — I wanted the touristy feeling of South Haven, and the small-town community feeling of Bloomingdale.
Thanks for commenting. I hope my little town does justice to the real Beach Haven!
My husband grew up in South Haven and has taken me there a few times. As I was reading these books I was so reminded of South Haven that I just had to find out. The lighthouse confirmed it when I showed it to him.
Thank you so much for commenting! Yes, my little town of Beach Haven is based on South Haven, where I spent every summer of my childhood. I now live in a small town nearby, but I work in South Haven in the summer. The picture was taken by a friend and used with her permission.
I’m glad you enjoyed the books!
