Common Sense with Andrew Grey

Common Sense

Hi I’m Andrew Grey and I’m here today to talk to you a little about Love Comes Unheard.  This is the fifth story in the Senses series and as you might be able to guess, this story features a main character who is deaf.  The entire Senses series has main characters who are sensory impaired in some way or another.    When writing a series, sometimes a story plays off another one.  This is very much the case with Love Comes Unheard.  After Love Comes Around, I wanted to give Wilson his own story and give little Janey someone to help mentor and show her the way as she comes of age.  The amazing thing was that Garrett just showed up in my head as the perfect person to fill that niche.  I didn’t set out to create him or think about the kind of character I wanted, he simply showed up and knocked on the door of my creativity.

Wilson, from Love Comes Around, simply captured my heart and I really felt he deserved his own story and to find love.  He’s the perfect servant and very quiet about his life before working for Dan and what happened before he immigrated to this country.  Wilson deserves to find love in his own right.  He adores Dan and Connor’s three children, but he craves his own family, someone to call his own. Wilson is always putting others before himself, it’s part of what makes him good at his job, but he deserves to be the center of someone’s universe.

The stories in the Senses series all touch something special inside me.  For many years the Farm series was where I went when I needed peace.  I’d write those stories and they felt like coming home.  I think the Senses stories have taken over the warmth and comfort for me.  The characters aren’t simple, but the values and warmth in the stories always make me think of coming home to people I’ve known my entire life, the ones who surround us with joy, warmth, and encouragement when we need it most.



What I’d really like to know from you is which Senses series character is the one you’d like to be a part of your life.  I’ll offer a copy of the Senses story of your choice to one lucky winner.  Enjoy and enough warm hugs to last you through the coming winter.

    Hi! I think my favorite character was Tom from Love Comes Home. He went out of his way to make sure Davey feels normal.

    I would love to know Patrick from Love Comes Silently, who does so many caring/kind things without really asking for anything in return and whose actions speak louder than words.

  4. Sue says:

    I also would like Patrick in my life because he is so careing and giving.

  5. Alex says:

    Actually I love the whole series. Each charakter is special in his own way. But… I’d say Patrick cause he gives so much without asking for something back.

    I haven’t read the series but from the blurbs I think Dan because he has a big heart.
