|NAVY SEAL SURRENDER COUNTRY|
This picture above was taken this spring in Ennis, Texas, the heart of bluebonnnet country. You can see the old building...there's another just to its right, an old haybarn rotting. Location is always important to my stories. I find that I get stuck during the writing process more if I haven't visited where I'm writing about.
Visiting gives me visuals that help my imagination, almost like a visualization board. Sometimes, like the hay, they make it into the story...and then sometimes they just make me smile.
On our picture excurtion to Aubrey, the home town of the Sloane brothers, Texas met his first horse.
You can catch more photographs that inspired scenes in Texas Family Reckoning (and all my books) on A Picture A Day.
