Wacky Wednesdays

Character Takeover: Sandra and Phillip Wright

Welcome to Wacky Wednesday!

What is wacky about this Wednesday, you might ask?

It’s where the characters from my books take over my blog and social media accounts so you can get to know them. Happening every Wednesday until launch day (I think…they’re my characters but I don’t control them.)



Sandra: My daughter just sent me an email to let me know she was getting married. An email! Can you imagine?

Okay, so maybe emails are the best way to contact us while we’re in the middle of the ocean, but still.


I just don’t know what to believe about this marriage. I didn’t even know she was dating someone. It’s a mystery alright, and I’m going to get to the bottom of it.

Phillip: Ignore my wife. Gabrielle is a grown woman. She can marry whomever she wants.

*punches palm

But if he hurts her, he’ll have me to deal with.

Who Are We? 

Sandra: I’m sure you’ve figured it out by now. We’re Gabrielle’s parents. I’m Sandra Wright and this is my husband Phillip. We’re dentists. 

*Sandra titters

Well, he’s a dentist and I’m his assistant, but I like to think of us as a team. I’m still concerned about this marriage…

What if this Theodore doesn’t take good care of my Gabrielle? 

*leans forward, eyes wide

What if he’s mean to Caleb?

*purses lips

If he so much as makes a single teardrop form in the eyes of my daughter or my precious grandchild, he’ll find out that not even an ocean can keep us apart.

*Phillip harrumphs in agreement

Maybe He’s Not So Bad…

Sandra: Ooh, I’ve finally met my new son-in-law…e-met. He’s a handsome one. I can see why Gaby is so caught up with him.

And he is just the sweetest with Caleb. He let me sit in on their story time…

*shakes head

Let me tell you, any man who can read the same story six times in a row without even a hint of annoyance has got my vote.


Wait. Suppose he’s pretending?

Phillip: He’s a good boy. Mannerly. Career firefighter. He’ll take good care of our girl.

Sandra: I suppose you’re right. 

*perks up

I know how we can find out if he’s right for her—let’s read the book! His Perfect Family releases on May 26, 2023. I’m sure if we read it, we’ll find out everything about Gaby and Theo’s marriage.

His Perfect Family, by Aminata Coote
