I love Seattle! Not only is it my hometown, it is also the setting for my Grayce Walters contemporary romantic suspense series. The city, with all of its unique features and elements, is practically a character itself, alongside Grayce, Davis, Hollie, James and the assorted animal heroes.
One of Seattle’s most distinctive features is its waterfront. Even this element has different nuances. From the actual port—a hub for international trade, regional transportation and industries such as tourism and commercial fishing—to the downtown shoreline along Elliott Bay, Seattle’s waterfront is by turns dark and gritty, bright and glitzy, urban and trendy, quiet and pristine.
I have featured the Seattle waterfront in all of my Grayce Walters books, including MEN UNDER FIRE, which releases May 26. The diversity of this Pacific Northwest coastline provides a variety of locations, each suited to a different mood or event within the story.
Pier 69 is one such locality you can “visit” in my upcoming release, MEN UNDER FIRE. The Central Waterfront piers are numbered 46 (in the south) to 70 (at the north end). Pier 69 is the location for the Port of Seattle headquarters where the commissioners hold their public meetings, as well as the passenger ferry that carries folks to the Inner Harbour in Victoria, British Columbia.
There are many unique features that make Seattle the dynamic, vibrant city that it is. Read the Grayce Walters series and see how many well-known landmarks you recognize!
