Ten Years at Willow Lake

It’s the 10-year anniversary of Summer at Willow Lake, which was the first book in the Lakeshore Chronicles series. It’s just been reissued in a special trade paperback edition.
I love this cover. I especially love the "Camp Kioga" logo on the paddle. I totally made up the name and even made up the story behind it, just because that’s what summer camp is all about–getting away from the real world into a world of make believe, a world where anything can happen.


(An aside–while traveling in the "real world," I did come across a scene that could be right out of Willow Lake. (It’s a canal in Holland, though.)


The Lakeshore Chronicles are a joy to write. Sometimes the town of Avalon, Willow Lake, and all the Bellamy family seem as real to me as my own friends and family.


Are there more books to come? Gosh, I hope so! I currently have commitments to write other books, but we’ll see what the future holds. Here’s a list of the first eleven titles. Enjoy!

  1. I have read all the Lakeshore Chronicles. I have loved the characters and their inaction with each other. I felt I knew all of them as my friends. Looking forward to more. Meg

  3. I’ve read LAKESHORE CHRONICLES several times and am working my way throught the series again. Have gotten to MARRYING DAISY BELLAMY . Each time I’ve read the series, I find some little thing I either missed the first time through or perhaps have forgotten.

    I don’t have to read the back of the paperback or the front fly of the dust jacket to know that a book by Susan Wiggs is going to be a good one. Thanks for the many hours I’ve spent getting lost in your stories. Always looking for a new title to ad to the library.

  5. Loved this series…a good one to reread! The characters become like family, you cry or rejoice with them as they struggle through life problems. We can relate!

  7. Is Starlight on Willow Lake going to be the last of the series? I would love to know what happened to Adam and Ivy… Cara and Ruby. Did Faith & Mason ever have children? Wow, I could go on and on and wish you would also.
