At the start of The Unwanted Series, Sharon Cooper (our first main character) is in her mid 40’s and lives in Portland, Oregon, with her husband, Jack. Jack is a supportive but old-fashioned protector. He works hard as an industrial mechanic which has allowed Sharon to be a stay-at-home mom. Their daughter, Callie, (our second main character) has just graduated from high school and loves photography, and Mark is away at college in his sophomore year.
As the plots thicken, Sharon and Callie enjoy an unusually close and fun relationship. Although they banter with each other, love and respect always comes first.
Alice Frainey is Sharon’s estranged mother. She lives in the biggest house in her affluent neighborhood.
Roy Jackson is a patrol officer. He is in his mid-twenties.
Rudy Burke is a private investigator that has been in the business for over 40 years.
Each successive book takes a closer look at them and their lives. Of course, as in anyone’s life, there are several colorful and supporting characters. Some of them are: Georgia Anderson; Grant and Karen Frainey and their daughters – Arlene, Bonnie and Charlotte; and Jack’s parents, Ralph and Cora Cooper.
As our books continue, more characters are added, old ones either fade away or become more complex. Some changes are pleasant, some surprising, and others are a relief. We will refrain from revealing the changes in subsequent books so as not to spoil the plots.
