“Love and Brimstone” is a book near and dear to my heart. Originally the first manuscript I sold, it’s also set in a place I absolutely adore — Yellowstone National Park.
I took my first trip there with my son in 2007, and my second trip with Hubby in 2010. While out there both times, I absorbed the beauty of the American West and Northwest, and got ideas for other books, including “Cross Country Chaos,” “Dead Moon Rising,” “Stoneface,” “Sunset Hearts,” and others.
This is how I envision Tim’s bookstore in Rapid City (“Stoneface“) even though this is Custer, a small town just to the south of Rapid City.
And there’s a house overlooking a valley not too far from there that is the inspiration for the Tim and Jack’s house.
Over the next few weeks, I’ll dig out photos from my trips to show you exactly where the stories took place so you can see for yourself.
