The Davis Mountains became a character in Protecting Their Child. The landscape presented as many obstacles to Kate & Cord as the men chasing them. I'm always inspired by visiting the story location and hope to write more books based in West Texas.
I get introduced to my daughter's friends and one of the first things she tells them now is to be careful about what they say...they may just end up in a book. And ironically, from all the people I know and have worked with that knew I was a writer, her friends are the only ones that have asked to have characters named after them.
I did. Can't wait to see if their stories sell and I return next year to the Davis Mountains and Valentine, Texas.
A BIG THANK YOU TO MY HUSBAND for the new Book Trailer.
