The Trailer Behind the Garage
Todd H. Davis
Biografía del autor
Todd H. Davis is the father of three older teenagers – two girls and a boy – and lives with his “smarter-than-me” wife in the Houston, Texas suburb of Cypress, which is the setting for his novels. He spent many years at Big Four accounting firms as a customs broker and global trade consultant. Todd spent most of his life in the Houston area, except for the two years in Japan in his youth, teaching English in churches in the Nagasaki area. While he was getting used to Asian culture, his wife, who had recently arrived in the US from China for studies, was getting used to American culture. They have spent the time since then getting used to each other. He claims his only qualifications for writing his first novel was watching too many romcoms and family movies during the COVID-19 lockdown of 2020 and asking “what if” about the plots.
Descripción del libro
Sixteen-year-old Sophie is determined to keep herself and her siblings in their own home, trying to maintain as much of the old family structure as possible after their parents’ death. Twenty-six-year-old Ty, the resident handyman and household assistant to the orphaned siblings, lives in the travel trailer behind their garage in a deal arranged with their grandmother who lives 200 miles away. Their semi-independence is under the condition that if things don’t work out, Grandma will force the kids to move in with her. Ty, a family friend and high school dropout who has yet to find his calling, is a necessary intrusion into that goal. But as the kids adapt to life without parents, they find that being independent means fully embracing Ty’s help and friendship. Younger siblings John and Emi hope Sophie can turn around her disdain for Ty before she drives him away. But her increasing reliance on Ty, coupled with her own recent life challenges, just might provide a new perspective. Why is Grandma’s guard up with Ty even as the kids ‘adopt’ him into their family? Will their relationship with Ty make the family stronger or lead to bigger conflict?

Necesidades de diseño
I want to the cover to include a picture of the two main characters, Ty and Sophie, and a travel trailer. Sophie is bi-racial, having a Black mother and White father. She dies her hair light brown. Ty is White and has facial hair. Sophie's siblings may or may not be included in the picture. John is the same height as Sophie, but is 14 years old. Emi is a 11 years old. At first, Sophie has disdain for Ty, so they might be shown with some kind of serious look at each other. I don't want to limit your creativity, but I envisioned having Ty standing in front of the trailer with his arms crossed, with Sophie facing him with hands on hips as if she just scolded him. But I still want the cover to look cheerful, not dark or brooding. It is partly comedy. The climate is warm most of the year, so clothing will likely include bare arms (short sleeves or no sleeves for the girls.) Although a romance is a significant part of the story, it is not the full story. It is about the kids forming a family that includes Ty. There is also a scene where Ty learns how to style Emi's hair. And there is a recurring theme of teddy bears getting rearranged on the fireplace mantle. The size of the book is 5.25 inches by 8 inches. Can I also get a square version suitable for an audio book?
