What are your Sims up to today?
When I’m not playing The Sims™, like most people I have a day job. I work primarily as a writer and an online educator (I teach people about writing-related subjects).
I currently have a young adult time travel series available for sale. The first book, WISHING YOU WERE HERE revolves around a 1950’s teen idol named Joey Tempo and a girl from the future who saves his life, Callie Reinard.
I thought it would be fun to re-create the characters from the book as a Sims 4 household and see what happened when I let them loose in the neighborhood.
A lot of fun is what happened! 😀 Let’s just say that some very interesting relationships developed that would have never happened in the book. 😀
Callie Reinard – an ambitious music fanatic from the present day whose accidental wish sends her back to 1957 to change the tragic fate of a teen idol who died at age 20.
Sims 4 traits: Ambitious, Music Love, Good
Leah Reinard – Callie’s younger sister, star athlete and not at all interested in old music or the radio business like her sister.
Sims 4 traits: Active, Outgoing, Loves the Outdoors
Joey Tempo – a 1950s singing sensation (like Elvis) who rose to fame at the age of 19 only to lose it all in a transatlantic plane crash twelve months later.

Sable Courtney – Joey’s beauty queen fiancee and daughter of his chief promoter. She resents Callie butting into their lives and doesn’t like how much time Joey spends with Callie.

Walter Miles – Joey’s manager and the owner of Joey’s record label Milestone Records
