I got the idea for The McKenna Legacy series through my own family tree. My maternal grandmother was a McKenna. When I say family tree, I’m not talking one of the new DNA based digital family trees that are advertised everywhere now, though I’ve just started creating one of my own. But more than a dozen years ago, two people in my family in New York decided to take on the project at the very same time. One was Mom’s cousin in the McKenna side of her family, the other was Mom’s brother-in-law, not a McKenna relation but married to one.
Reading about members of my extended family and their relationships with one another inspired me to create a fictional McKenna family with heroes and heroines who reflected some of the qualities of the people I got to know through the two family trees. And being an Irish family, I felt giving the McKennas some form of psychic ability had to be part of their stories. So The McKenna Legacy was born.
To my darling grandchildren,
I leave you my love and more. Within thirty-three days after your thirty-third birthday – enough time to know what you are about – you will have in your grasp a legacy of which your dreams are made. Dreams are not always tangible things, but more often are born in the heart. Act selflessly in another’s behalf, and my legacy shall be yours.
Your loving grandmother,
To celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, I’ve put The McKenna Trilogy–the first 3 books in the series–on sale for $2.99 (regularly $6.49). So if you want to get your Irish on this weekend, meet the McKennas…
