As a writer, a real location in a book is a must for me. It inspires scenes for me to visit the location, but more than that, it anchors me in reality.
|The Observatory and Fog|
So for me, experiencing a location inspires me to write the story like my May release, PROTECTING THEIR CHILD. Until I experienced the terrain, I didn't know what the possibilities were for this story. The gully that Kate slides down is really there. The cactus that pricks her thumb was inspired when our pup, Dallas, got too curious on a hike.
We took a drive to experience the vastness of the stars...and believe me, you've never experienced "vastness" until you're driving miles from nowhere on your last gallon of gas.
I hope that you get a taste of real Texas and real Texans when you read one of my books. Thanks for joining me today.
