Inspirational Photos for Girls Like Us

Girls Like Us - High Resolution a novel
 I’ve started working on my third book titled Girls Like Us. The book is a comedy about the life-long friendship between two girls in their mid-twenties as they travel across the country together. Right now I am in the process of outlining and finding inspiration for the characters and their stops in their roadtrip from Norfolk, Virginia to San Diego, California. Beatrice “Triss” is fun-loving, wild, and free while her best friend, Hailey, is more grounded, loyal, and strong-willed. Here are some photos I found to inspire the bond I’m trying to write about.

Hailey and Triss when they first met at the age of seven in elementary school. They met at recess when Hailey was making snow angels. Triss asked if she could play too.

Ever since that winter day, they were inseparable- truly best friends forever!

As they grew older, their friendship only grew stronger. Boys came and went, but Hailey and Triss never lost sight of their sisterly bond.

They avoided trouble like pros during high school, Triss always leading the way, and the fun didn’t stop once they were in college either. Hailey left for the University of Hawaii and Triss was right behind her.

While Hailey earned her degree (major still undecided for me, not for Hailey. She’s very grounded)…

Triss was living it up, spending her days on the beach and working at Hooters in Honolulu.

Though their lives went in separate directions, Hailey and Triss never did.

Now their friendship will be tested as they make their way from Norfolk, Virginia to San Diego, California with many hilarious stops along the way.
