Shattered takes place in Savannah. How does one set a book in a city you've never visited?
I borrowed a travel CD from the Library which is actually quite lovely but very odd. It makes all of the lovely Savannah sites seem quite boring - even the ghost walk is laughable rather than scary.
I've also borrowed Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. Want to watch that tonight for inspiration. My Detective Hero has already veered off the straight and narrow and done a couple of not so legal maneuvers to try and get the goods on another crooked cop. And the jewelry heist that resulted in a hostage taking of our Hero and the heroine isn't what it seems.
Everyone has secrets.
A group of us, friends since grade school, will all be turning 50 next year. One of my friends wants us to go to Cuba to celebrate for a week - just the girls, minus the spouses and the kids. This friend of mine always does things in a BIG way - no simple spa day for her. During my teens, she was there for almost every wild and crazy thing I ever did - and she was right in front leading the pack. Anyway, wrapping this back around to the writing thread, Cuba's not a deal breaker, one of my other friends would rather go on a cruise. I was thinking it would be great if we all went to Savannah!!!
Research trip, celebrate 50 and spend a week with my girlfriends. What could be better?
