An introduction to
"Postcards From the Edge"
While in the process of writing book #3 in my Stone Suspense Series, I started re-reading my journals--the many ones I kept as I prepared to write each book. They go all the way back to before DEADLY SWITCH was published in 2013.
When planning that first book, I made the slightly mad decision to set it in a magical location called Tropea, on the Calabrian coast of Italy. Well, I imagined it to be magical but I'd never actually been there! Yes, I've been known to go out on a limb like that:>)
The funny thing was that after DEADLY SWITCH came out, almost everyone said they could tell I'd spent a considerable amount of time in Tropea because readers said they could feel, taste, and smell my setting. I credit that to a friend who went there every year and of course the miracle of doing research on the internet.
When I did finally get there in person (a year after the book came out) I was thrilled at how accurate the places cited in my book were!
So, dear reader, I hope you'll come along with me on this exciting journey! Every week I will share either a snippet from my journal and/or an image that will constitute my version of Postcards From the Edge.
- Each blog post will be open for comments, as engaging with my readers is one of my favourite things to do.
Hope to see you back here next week!
