|This summer, a friend and I took a road trip from Colorado to California, a three-thousand-mile round trip, and I had three reasons for making this journey.
The first reason was to take a young friend of Lee’s and mine on a trip to see the US. The second was to do research for the next book in the Chameleon Effect series. And third was to take a brief tour down memory lane. It’s been more than twenty years since I visited California, where I grew up, and I was curious to see how things had changed (or not changed) in my old home.
We drove up Route One, along the scallop-edged coast, the setting for another scene, this time from Siren Song, the third book of the Chameleon Effect Series, that’s coming out soon.
We paid a visit to Morro Bay, Santa Cruz and San Francisco, walked on Ocean Beach, wended our way through Lincoln Park and crossed the Golden Gate Bridge, then took a drive up to the top of Mount Tamalpais and out to Point Reyes Station. Some of these locations will provide settings for the fourth book in the series, which I’m working on now. 🙂
What I’ve been reading…
I recently read Huntley Fitzpatrick’s The Boy Most Likely To. What I loved most about the story was the main character, Tim, his amazing voice and wonderful sense of humor. Despite the fact his life is getting too complicated for words and everything is at risk of falling apart, he can still come up with a joke that makes you chuckle.
Alice is a little older and should be a lot wiser, but for all her smarts, she can’t help falling for the boy mostly likely to…possibly break her heart. This story has to be one of my favorites in contemporary romance!
