Hey y’all. I’m over at Julie Glover’s blog today talking about my Texas roots and how they influenced the setting of Forever Road.
Here’s a quick preview:
Thanks for having me, Julie. I’ve been looking forward to joining you for some
greasy deep-fried foodstimulating conversation for quite some time. Thanks for inviting me to talk about one of my pet subjects—Texas.
Before I get into my version of a Travel Tex commercial, let me explain why we’re talking about Texas. When I sat down to write FOREVER ROAD, I created a fictional East Texas town called Gaslight City. I spent hours figuring out the geography of this town. By the time I wrote about it, the place seemed real to me. That’s why Julie invited me to explain why I set my book in Texas.
I am fond of saying Texas is in my blood, in my bones…and it is.
