Location, location, location. It’s not just important in real estate. Click here to see my guest column for the Happy Ever After blog at USA Today about the importance of location in a book. 

August, 2014

Hunted, Book 1 of my new The Men from Crow Hollow series, has been on the shelves for a few weeks and will soon be joined by Stalked and then Trapped. I’m celebrating with a brand new billboard advertisement.  (see below)

All three books are connected to Colorado, a very special place for me. In the 1930s, my maternal grandparents homesteaded on a ranch in the mountains of Colorado. One of the requirements was that they live on the ranch at least three months out of the year. What that meant is that every summer my grandmother would take her three young daughters, of which my mother was the oldest, and move to the ranch. My grandfather who had a job in town would come up on the weekends.

My mother spent her formative years on the ranch and she was fond of saying that she could ride a horse before she could walk. At age eighteen, she fell in love with a young soldier who’d been sent to Colorado to learn to ski before shipping out for WWII. She waited for the young man to return and when he did, she left Colorado and settled in Illinois where she and the young man married and had their family. I am the youngest child of that union.

Almost every family vacation that I can remember was a trip back to Colorado to see my mother’s parents and extended family. It was a long drive from Illinois to Colorado but the anticipation in the car was palpable. The mountains were magical—and the stories my mother told, perhaps a bit fact and a bit fiction, made them come to life.

It seemed natural that Colorado and the mountains would be the connecting thread in my new series. Hunted is dedicated to my grandparents, Stalked to my mother, and Trapped to my father.

The heroes of all three books are boyhood friends who spent their summers in the Colorado mountains. Now they’re adults but still, the mountains call them home. All three heroes are former military. In Hunted, Ethan Moore is a former Army helicopter pilot. In Stalked, Mack McCann is a former Navy intelligence officer and in Trapped, Brody Donovan is a former Air Force physician.

Speaking of three’s, I just did a guest post for the USA Today’s Happy Ever After blog on my three favorite romantic couples in the movies. Click here to see the post.
