Behind the Scenes

My new book A REASON TO STAY released a few weeks ago. Since that time, I’ve been attending book events, book clubs and meeting with readers. It’s been so fun sharing some of the background of this story.

Faith Marin is a successful Houston news anchor. Our local NBC station allowed me to spend the day observing the internal operations so I could understand her job. They even let me “be” the anchor for a brief time!


Geary Marin is a bass fishing champ. My own men fish and compete in tournaments, but it was important for me to understand the big tournament environment. The organizers for the TEXAS BASS CLASSIC gave me a media pass and I learned the inside scoop!


An important aspect of any novel is the setting. This next photo is the marina at Lake Conroe, Texas. This is where the opening scene in the book is set . . . the place where Faith and Geary meet and Faith “falls” for him.  *wink wink*


Another key scene takes place at the Johnson Space Center in Houston. The marketing director took me on a special tour.  So fun!
