top of the world
Picture of the week from my daily “plotting” walks!
It’s good to remember that sometimes being a kid just makes you feel on top of the world.

Since summer beckons with lovely weather for late afternoon “plotting” walks, I always have my phone ready to snap photos of scenes that catch my eye, and I’m going to be sharing some of my favorites here every week. (I hope the weather where you are is as gorgeous as it is here.) I find that after a day at the computer, doing something physical gets the brain using a different set of synapses—and lo and behold, story kinks that have tied me in knots all day seem to untangle so easily.

As promised, I’ll be posting some fun news about a new book release, so please check back soon for a sneak preview and a cover reveal. Though it’s beach time here in the northern hemisphere, it’s never too early to be thinking of Christmas stories, right?

Have you ever wondered where authors get the inspiration for their heroes and heroines? Well, I have an art background, so I’m a very visual person and love to look at historical paintings to help me picture my characters. (This is Lord Granville Leveson-Gower above on the left, who was called the most handsome man in England. He’s pretty dishy, isn’t he? But I have a feeling he would be have been quite a handful in more ways than one!) You can see other seductive men and alluring women on my Pinterest boards.

Please check back often and say hi!
